Hi Folks,

My DSG went out flashing PRNDS and throwing a "18115/P1707/05895 - Interference in Mechatronic Module" and another about Unexpected Gear Disengagement.

It's a solid failure - it doesn't go away with any amount of waiting. I cannot do "Basic Settings" on the DSG - it's unavailable.

I've had the mechatronics unit tested by ECU Testing and it tests fine. My fluid was fairly new and the level was good. Shifting was smooth and completely normal.

Shortly before the DSG issue I had an alternator voltage regulator go out so I replaced the alternator and battery. I'd say the DSG went out within 250 miles of that incident.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I might look at?

This car is killing me.
