Car is: 2011 JSW TDI, DSG with 87K miles.
Im the second owner, I just purchased the car 2 months ago. Its one of those "fixed" car.
Ive changed the oil and serviced the tranny right away cos unknown history. Tranny oil was very clean.

A good month ago, the wrench icon started to flash, upon checking the code:
P2711 - Unexpected Mechanical Gear Disengagement Upper limit exceeded

Cleared it, came back after a week, but it kept coming back.
But since the P2711 was the only code, I just replaced the clutch pack yesterday, fresh fluid, filter, dgs adaptation was done. first 200 miles was great, then it the code came back again.

What could it be? Mechatronic?
I just want to be sure before I spend $$$ on it.

Should I get new (oem) or one of those refurbished oem from ebay?


Thank you!
Chris

VAG Error Code: 19143/21181/21188/010001

EOBD II Error Code: P2711

Fault Location:
Unexpected/Implausible Mechanical Gear Disengagement - No Signal/Communication or Incorrect Basic Setting/Adaptation

Possible Cause:
Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL)(K83) active.
Transmission Malfunction.
Erratic Driving Behaviour.

Double Clutch worn/faulty.
Output Shaft Speed Sensor 1/2 (G501/G502) faulty.
Direct Shift Gearbox (DSG) Mechatronic Control Unit (J743) faulty.

Possible Solutions:
Check Output Shaft Speed Sensor 1/2 (G501/G502).
Read Measuring Value Blocks (MVB).
Check/Replace Direct Shift Gearbox (DSG) Mechatronic Control Unit (J743).

Special Notes:
When found in 6-Speed Direct Shift Gearbox (DSG/02E), check Measuring Value Blocks (MVB) 008. The Output Shaft Speeds should align with the Input Shaft Speed during a Test Drive (Tiptronic in Gear 1/2) with the Clutch engaged.
According to Skoda Technical Product Information (TPI) 2024152 an updated Clutch Set is available which addresses these issues.
Perform Basic Setting

thx Keith, ive read all these before i changed the clutch.

P2711 alos said:
"This Technical Bulletin is for fault code P2711 ONLY, if any other faults appear with this code, perform normal GFF processes and diagnoses."
Since I only had P2711 ONLY, and didnt fix my problem, I hesitant to change the Mechatronic Unit.
