Re: quattro-digest V1 #177
This technical bulletin could be a possiblity for you. It does not
address resetting the TCM, but it may be a reason why your trans
goes into failsafe, as does the one on my '93 90S. I just discovered
this TSB and haven't had a chance to investigate it. It basically
says that all 097 4-spd autos may have this problem caused by a
bad ATF temp sensor. You need a PDF viewer to read it.
Transmission, Erratic Shifting, No DTC's Stored - Sep '97
Another lister once told me they had heard that the only way
to "reset" the TCM was to unplug it/replug it. There probably is
more to it than that but it also would likely require a special
Audi tool; their ubiquitous Scan Tool maybe?
Good luck. Keep my name around if you find a solution. I'll let
you know if I do to.
