   They definitely weren't all on for me when it was
showing symptoms. turning off the car and turning it
on later on in the day proved that it would work fine
afterwards. It's really wierd.. I'm going to see how
it acts tomorrow. Today driving home was fine,
although I didn't try to manually shift the puppy.
   Thanks for taking time to respond. I'll keep
monitoring and post results.

95 S6
95 A6 wagon.
