I have a 98.5 30V A4. The car starts off shifting fine and goes into limp mode
after about 30-60 mins of driving. The car will start of in a high gear, not
go into reverse and PRND4321 all light up.

Is this consistent with a displaced magnet?

If so, where is the best explanation of replacing this magnet strip?

My transmission computer near the passenger seat is bone dry. My VAG does not
indicate that the Multi Function Switch is defective.

What do you guys think?
