Volkswagen Touran Owners Manual: Fault in the function of the automatic gearbox

First read and observe the introductory information and safety warnings

Emergency programme

There is a fault in the system if all the displays on the instrument cluster for the selector lever positions have a light background. The automatic gearbox is running in an emergency programme. The vehicle can still be driven in the emergency programme, but only at reduced speed and not in all gears.

With the dual clutch gearbox DSG® you will then, in some cases, no longer be able to select the reverse gear. The gearbox should be checked by a qualified workshop as soon as possible.

The automatic gearbox should be checked by a qualified workshop as soon as possible in any case.

Overheating of the dual clutch gearbox DSG®

The dual clutch gearbox can, for example, become too hot when the vehicle pulls off regularly, long periods of crawling speed or stop and go traffic. The overheating of the gearbox is indicated by the warning lamp and possibly also by a text in the instrument cluster display. An audible warning tone may also be heard. Stop the vehicle and allow the gearbox to cool down  .
