Hi. I have a 2010 Tiguan auto, and only yesterday the Engine Management Light came on together with the Flashing Spanner symbol on the dashboard. However, when the spanner is flashing, the car is in gear 2 as opposed gear 1 and when driving doesn't change gear or when it does, skips gears. Any ideas or is it straight to the dealer?

Hi Wilfer, I just had this same problem, exactly the same on my Passat tsi dsg-7 2014 tonight. No difference from what you experienced. I was able to make it home but thought I would not make it. Luckily I have a Carista OBD adapter that can read error messages and diagnostics on VW ECUs and the message I had was "transmission stuck on D5". I reset the error and performed a DSG transmission reset. I went for a drive after that and the problem didn't come back.
What was your resolution? Did you have to take it back to the dealer for repair or the problem never repeated after that?
