Auto gearbox stuck in 1st gear??

5 posts in this topic

Hi, I recently bought a 51 reg A3 diesel auto and drove it home over 200miles with no problems with the gearbox whatsoever! I then left the car parked for a week and the battery ran flat. I didn't have the stereo code so I charged the battery without removing the positive or negative. The battery now has charge and the car starts first time but will only select first gear when in Drive? It will reverse or drive in 1st but that's all?? What have I done? Any help greatly appreciated.

What engine / gearbox combination have you got? No idea what it is but it might help others to diagnose the issue for you. +++

Im sorry I do not know the specifics other than 130bhp 1.9 TDI engine and autobox? I have checked the fuses above the battery and they are ok? Any ideas anyone...?

I think the only option is to drive it to the dealers........ slowly !
