2014 VW Passat turbo auto has a problem going from park to reverse. . It clicks into reverse but wont move and all the gear lights on the dash display instead of just the gear I am in.
. It clicks into reverse but wont move and all the gear lights on the dash display light up
instead of just the gear I am in. It can be put into reverse from drive and then try reverse
but not from Park.
This sounds like the gear selector switch is going bad or it is out of adjustment, a good VW shop can put it on a machine and check the selector points and make sure it is in the gear that the shifter is placed in.
Also this car is probably still under its powertrain warranty.
Thanks Mark. Vehicle had been garaged for a couple of years but had been driven a bit before this started to happen. Is due for a service. as well
All gear lights on rather than just the one selected indicates fault code in the transmission control unit--
