No, do not replace your transmission, the G68 sensor is not reading correctly, (input pulse sensor) It is right next to your transmission cooler (on the top of the transmission) Either it is not getting the signal or the sensor is not workng. If the sensor is working correctly, it may need the gap between the sensor and the (exciter ring) reduced. I have fixed over 50, 01M VW transmissions, that the dealer said was junk. When it was a simple sensor problem.

Let me guess, seems like it's stuck in third gear from take off? Reverse and (manually shifting it into first) work's fine? It's like the transmission is slipping and not shifting?

Even if you replace the trans with a used one the sensor will still not work. and it will act exactly the way it does now.

VW put two different sensor's on that car that year.

The part number's are:

01M927321 (no wire)


01M927321a (with extention wire)

I have a 2000 Eclipse and the tyranny is going into Limp Mode or Safe Mode. When I take off from a stop it shifts into 3rd gear and will not up shift or down shift. A Mitsubishi dealer in Greenwood.In told...

A Tyranny? I do believe you mean a transmission. It would seem more like the transmission has lost its link to the ECU. First of all, check all connections to the transmission. Then, to the computer. Failing that, the computer may have to be replaced.
