The question is what causes this behaviour? What is wrong in this car very good car but reverse issues all the time and Audi knows the problem why not address it right from start that you let people drive a very good looking car and yet it does not go in reverse? Sad and very unprofessional manufacturers if they things like that. Chimula

Hi: Probably the problem is the electronic module of the transmision. the mechanical part of the transmision is working well. but the problem is the electronic part. You need to scan the car and chane the module.

Reverse not working 2006 KIA Sorento


Your right about too much electronics ,and no the front clutch works all motion in the gearbox ,now iam not sure about this model but the renault gearbox that i have worked on fairly regular compared to other makes has a solonoid inside the gearbox that is operated by the lever for drive and reverse ,now the problem here is you have to remove the gearbox sump to test it ,also here in spain the parts are not sold seperate but only a complete exchange gearbox and if you ask at the dealer they will want to just change the gearbox as more profit in this than a repair but try a independante auto box garage which you will have in america or the Uk even germany but spain?? Now here their called granny boxes for old pensioners from northern europe and you would be laughed at trying to ask for a repair ,

Fiesta started making noises either gearbox or clutch? clunks going in to reverse, shudders driving off in 1st gear


sounds like your clutch is going out, is it hard to put in gear with clutch all the way depressed? could also be the sinkronyzer going out, could be the gears in the transmission also going bad. need to check the fluid in the transmission.

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 www.BBA-Reman.com 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.

Hi Frank I am a technician with audi myself It may be that you require an engine e.c.u and not a gearbox one however has your A4 had any recalls carried out on the gearbox since purchase if not that would definately be something worth checking hope this helps.

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

The parking pin inside the transmission has sheared and is interfering with reverse as well. I would locate a reputable transmission shop.

Reversing lights


Could be the reverse light switch itself, usually mounted on the gearbox with 2 wires coming from it. If you had a multimeter (set to resistance / ohms) you could check that the switch changes from open to closed by disconnecting the plug on those wires and putting the multimeter across the two terminals. The resistance will be very low with the gear lever in reverse, and very high/open circuit with it not in reverse. Also check that there is battery voltage to one of the terminals.
