There is an electrical malfunction in the EV5 solenoid electrical circuit. You must go to Advance Auto or Autozone and borrow their scan tool and get the code.

2001vw beetle automatic transmission is not shifting.


Sounds like a shift solenoid . See if you can order them separate from the valve body. I would call a vw dealer and talk with the service department.

1998 VW Beetle 5-speed trouble getting it in to reverse


I have a 1998 VW Beetle and when I first bought it, (used) shifting into first was the same action for shifting into reverse. They were so close I usually went into first when trying for reverse. I took it to a transmission shop and they replaced part of the shift linkage that is famous for wearing. It cost me maybe $60.00. Now she shifts like a new car.

My transmission only shifts twice in overdrive in my 1998 vw bug why


sounds like you have electrical malfunction on your transmission. I suggest you go to Advance Auto or Autozone and borrow their DTC scan tool and hook up to your car and get the code. It will tell you what's up with it.

I have a 1998 vw beetle i want to know what does the tcm do in my car


TCM stands for Transmission Control Module.
It is a firmware programed device designed to control the shift points of your VW's automatic transmission. It is also responsible for safeguarding the transmission against abuse or other damaging problems from the operator as well as the engine. For instance, if you were driving down the interstate and accidentally bumped the shifter into reverse. the TCM would "see" that you are traveling at a high rate of speed and reverse was selected but nothing would happen. Or, your engine is misfiring, the TCM may only allow certain gears to be used to avoid you stalling in the road.
When a TCM malfunctions your car may not shift into overdrive, or in worse cases may not shift at all causing you to have to shift the transmission manually.
Most late model automatic cars have a TCM.

Transmission wont go into overdrive on my 01 beetle, if you shift it manual it shifts hard into 3rd gear, every light on the dash is on. are all these problems related?


Try tuning the transmission by changing the fluid, filter and pan gasket. You might have to do it twice but in a few cases with newer vw beetles I have noticed a pattern of bad transmissions

My 1999 volkswagen cabrio will not shift into overdrive.


first i would bring it the the vw dealer and tell the service advisor you would like them to "reset basic settings on my transmission" if they tell you it will take 1 hour tell them "it will only take you five minutes" and maybe they will just charge you half an hour for it.

there may still be an internal problem with your transmission but this is how i fix 90% of all vw transmission concerns.
