Control panel where PRND symbols are all lite up with a rectangle box around them. I'm unable to take out of park and i notice the rpms are high when driving like its not shifting out of first gear.

Auto transmission controller or sensor's fault; you need to visit a service point. If you have more positions than prnd like 1 2 etc you may have the option to manually shift till 2nd gear to drive to the service but if not then you need to call your assistance

It maybe the information display is not in standard mode by some kind of diagnostic mode.

If you have raiod security code, disconnect the battery negative terminal for 30 mins and reconnect it to see if it can rest it.

I have a Audi A4 SE 2000 Reg. FE52UFB, with a I believe a Multi-tronic automatic 6 speed gearbox. I have flashing PRND lights. The car runs well, although very occasionally it has dropped out of gear,...

You really should not drive your car in that condition.Resetting codes will not help and it's a waste of money. All indicates problem with torque converter. Service immediately!!!!

Prob's with my Audi A6 2003 Auto 3.0 V6 (gearbox)

Doubt it as the fault suggests you need to look into the range sensor. If similar to Renault there is a switch on the gearbox that senses where the select lever is (at the gearbox end). If the display is wrong then the sensor needs looking at and either it will need to be adjusted into a set position by moving it, or perhaps the connector to it or wiring to/from it have a fault.

I own a Audi a4 multitronic 2005. Recently i'v had the PRND flashing either individualy or all together and I think it's not going through all the gears and an intermittent failure to engage reverse gear,...

I'm having a similar problem with my '05 A4 Multitronic with 75,000 miles on clock. PRNDS lights are all blocked out but not flashing (which I believe is worse). Car is driving ok after I had the EGR valve replaced by dealer at cost of £454. Dealer quoted me a further £1,077 to fit new gearbox ECU. Found a few websites that claim to be able to repair the ECU, best one seems to be who quoted £169 +VAT + carriage. You do however need someone to take off and fit repaired ECU, had quotes ranging from £150 - £250 + £60 for 6L of new gearbox oil. However, I have been told by 3 independent garages that specialise in Audi's, BMW's & Merc's etc that they cannot be fixed, so I'm a little sceptical. To summarise the cheapest quote I've had for a new ECU fully fitted is from a garage on Tyneside (where I live) called Swift Motors 0191-2140056 who said they'd be able to do the lot for £860. Only bought car in February, absolutely love it, but sick as f**k at this unexpected cost which I can't afford. Had to take payment holiday from mortgage to cover the costs. Should have stuck with my old Ford Focus!! If anyone can offer any other tips I'd like to hear.

Sometimes can't get reverse gear Audi A6 2004 Auto 1.9TDi UK

Unless your shade tree mechanic is an Audi expert, go to the dealer who has all the books and diagrams that tell the tech exactly where to look. The other guy may want to replace something just to troubleshoot and the factory tech should know exactly what to replace or which plug is loose.

2000 Audi A6 tiptronic 2.5tdi. Gearbox warning light on, no 5th

You need to give the car a scan, preferably with VCDS (or VAS at a dealer). If limp mode is activating (lit up gear selections), then it will be storing codes.
The fact that it works to a degree could be good news, the gear box has likely not failed. Could be the F125 selector switch, which is a common fail at this age.

If it is the display for the gears flashing, this indicates a fault with the gearbox system, this is more common on multitronic gearbox's

DSC fault on display,car stops complete electrical failure.

Hi Jagman

I suspect this could be your battery at fault.

Get it heavy discharge tested first.

Good Luck.
