Volkswagen VW Golf VI 6 problem defective 7 speed DSG DQ200 mechatronics (7-Gang-DSG defekt)

There is no indicator in the MFA display showing
that forward gear is set. I’m going into reverse and it’s not showing up either, while the
engine is idle as you can see. There’s no error message in the car information display.
The PDC is working. And now I’m changing the gear, set it to parking which doesn’t change
anything. Finally, I’m trying any possibility, even manual shifting, which does not help
at all. So, turning off the car and restarting the engine. Waiting some time for the display
to initialize, then it will show up again in the upper right corner. The “P” is there,
and so on, an the gear is working again. Took the car to the garage and they replaced the
transmission fluid in the DQ200 DSG. And on the next morning the car did not move any
more. The “P” was blinking. After some diagnostics, Volkswagen changed the mechatronics.

    Mach mir keine Angst. Das Getriebe DQ200 ist der größte Mist! Bei mir wird gerade die Mehrfachkupplung gewechselt weil der 2. und 5. durch ist! Und das Kulanzverhalten von VW ist bescheiden! Weil man ja soviel Einfluss auf die Kupplung hat. Das Öl im Getriebe wurde gestern gewechselt und neu adaptiert. Ich werde den Wagen schnellst möglich abstossen.

    Thanks for sharing the video. I was thinking to buy a used VW Golf 1.4 tsi. May I know whether your car is having other problems after replacing the mechatronics? Thanks.

    Such a shame that the DSG has so many problems. Really like VW cars generally (trim quality, handling etc.) but the automatic transmission problems are something that will possibly turn me into Japanese alternatives (Honda/Toyota) instead. :/

  4. Antonio Wakardo says:

    wow man you have an average fuel consumption of 12 liters. What engine is this?
    I have a dsg 7 speed on my golf 6 from 2011, but the stick it's different looking. It's smaller. I have done 100 000 km without changing the transmission fluid, should i do it?

    it happens olot in China。and no further response from VW after 2014. They even chg the 10ys warranty to 3ys for the 7speed dsg.

  7. Chris Allison says:

    how long did it take to get a replacement mechatronics unit please?

  8. Alper Akbilgi says:

    This is clearly a mechatronic/electronic fault. to solve this problem, changing the transmission fluid is idiocy. Dont let them touch your car again.

  9. Tim Joseph says:

    Thank goodness VAG cancelled making the 10 speed DSG, now that they are facing the Dieselgate Scandal worldwide. BMW is also facing similar scandals with their diesel engines too.

  10. coptastacul says:

    There is no oil change with DSG7. Ask the dealership.

  11. Shawn parasram says:

    i scanned my 2009 vw golf tsi DSG7, and got an error transmission code 06012 , can anyone advise me , what that could be???

  12. Guy Focus says:

    stupid VW…problem car

  13. Junaid Amin says:

    talk about screwing ur gearbox with the way u change gears 😂

  14. ChevyBM says:

    dsg is the worst transmission ever built… they don even last 60000miles (100000km)…

  15. repo4 says:

    That's why I would never touch an automatic. The less bits that can go wrong the better.

  16. patrick mulligan says:

    guy you are a poophol, i have a golf 3 gti with over 1,2 million kilometers. so yes you are correct, vw are crap

  17. IO Gab says:

    DSG7 doesn't have transmission oil… You bean scammed.

  18. VAG Audi VW works says:

    howmuch they cost you for mechatronic unit?

  19. k l says:

    mate, u shift way too fast in a DSG. DSG needs additional cares. Be patient and shift one by one and stop at N, but not D to P straight away, like D to N Then handbrake Then N to P. Cheers. Touran DSG 7speed Owner.

  20. Boki Dusanic says:

    dont modify golfs, they are weakn beyond stock format. golf is not a toyota supra or nissan gtr…

  21. A. B says:

    very bad quality VW to many problems

  22. Elda Maeder says:

    VW/Audi DSG DQ200 Transmission and Engine with a timing chain are totally unreliable.

  23. why must i chase the cat says:

    dsg oil has a special change procedure. if it's not followed correctly you will get dsg issues. dsg is a manual gearbox with dual clutch and hydraulics attached, computer controlled.

  24. Libralia says:

    is this problem found on the 6 gear speed??

  25. 洪肉娟遭報應生雜種 says:

  26. maher habash says:
