I have the same problem with my 2003 Passat TDI. There is a magnet in the gear selector to engage and disengage the manual shift. I live in Thailand and am waiting on the VW dealer to locate one. If you are a little bit hands on you could possibly do the repair yourself. the replacement part is the plastic that slides up and down when you select your AUTO gears and of course to pull to the gate to engage manual shift. The magnet is part of that plastic replacement part. Cost 2000 baht which is about 42 English pounds. Good Luck

2002 Hundai Sonata V-6. What do the +/- next to the automatic shifter do? My daughter accidentally bumped the shifter into that area while driving at 55...horrible noise and burning smell...did she just...


That is the tiptronic shifter, it allows the driver to manually shift gears without the use of a clutch. She may have bumped it to s much lower gear but there should be no damage done from that. If the rpm is too high the car will override and shift up.

I have a 2002 subaru impreza type euro automatic/tiptronic and have just noticed a flashing green "power" light on the dash. Any ideas what is the problem. Cheers, Tim


hi the autos have a power and economy mode which is selected by pressing a button near the trans shifter, the power makes the car more responsive for passing etc and the economy is meant to be a smoother drive that saves fuel, its not really a prob its just telling you what mode its in hope this helps

My 2002 passat 1.8 litre tiptronic automatic shift indicator is not moving? Would that be a switching problem on the shifter, transmission or lights?


Sounds like the whole shifting unit. It has a printed circuit strip unit that usually goes bad or a switch on the side of the transmission. What code is showing? You need to have it scanned at your VW dealership to correctly diagnose your exact problem

Tiptronic automatic gear box


At the bottom of the automatic gearbox (tiptronic) you will find 2 threaded plugs on below surface. First (in front of the car) is for emptying, and second is for filling up. Tightening torque is 24 Nm. Please Rate my Response! Thanks!
