Question about Volkswagen Cars & Trucks
I have a 2004 GOLF and I just changed my solenoid and then it still have problem with the shifting. It starts in 3. i still can use the 1st and the 2nd manually but then it wont pass 3rd. The technician said that i have to drive the a whole full day if for the code to work. The question is is he right do i have to wait for it?
No he is wrong. Codes are recorded immediately they occur and are read when you use a code reader. Using a code reader to reset the system works immediately and if the fault is still present it will record the fault immediately. Have you run the fault codes before you changed the solenoid. If not do so as you may have an issue with the transmission control module

Reboot system by disconnecting negative terminal on Battery, with ignition Key on and engine not running, remove terminal for more than two minutes and connect it back, it will spark a little do not panic, and try it again

SOURCE: Transmission problem
I had a shifting problem. The car would start in the wrong gear and shift at wrong times. I repaced the governor postion sensor and tranny fluid and the problem has been fixed for several years. Did you replace the tranny fluid?

I had this exact problem on my 2005 5.3L Suburban... It would shift into 1 and 2 and reverse, but not 3 and 4.
I took it into a transmission shop, and he said the 3-4 shift solenoid was burned up. Wanted 1500 to fix it. Far from home, so I have to pay it.
