Hi I wonder if any one can help. We've got a 2.5 with an auto box w reg. Driving through town last week the bus seemed to go into neutral even though it was in drive, went through the gears but nothing. Tuned the bus off and started again and it went into drive but then stopped working again. Kept doing this. Garage drained oil and replaced oil / filter to correct level.Drives but doesn't seem to know which gear to use now, drive or third. Is our gear box on its way out.:confused:

Does it change gear m8 or is it stuck in 3rd?

VW in their wisdom placed a circuit strip inside the gearbox on Autos :eek: I cant remember all the tech jargon for what it does but it sorts out the gear changes. Creeriver on here had a problem where it was stuck in 3rd, he got an auto electrician on it and he traced the fault to this strip. They dropped the sump and sure enough there was a break in the circuit.

New one in (about £140 fitted) and all was well again T:

May be worth gettin an auto electrician to test to see if its related, failing that, others will be along shortly T:

Hope ya get sorted ASAP & welcome to the forum :)
