Morning
Audi a7 2011 having issues with my car. Has any 1 come across thease fault codes before. It's also displaying on my dash GEAR BOX MALFUNCTION still safe to drive sends the car into limp mode but only for like 5-10 seconds. This issue doses not happen all the time just 1 or 2 times a week.

What engine and gearbox combination do you have? Any other issues apart from this message?

There is a TSB (technical service bulletin) relating to this fault code. A dealer should be able to check if your chassis number is affected and / or the repair has been carried out. I think it may be just a software update?

I thought tiptronic gearboxes were "sealed for life" and not require servicing? who did your oil change in the gearbox?, mine has never been done and never been flagged by the service team at Audi whenever its been in - I know some owners do have it changed though

For the cost of getting it done (it's a DIY job that's slightly more complicated than changing regular engine oil) - about 170ish for the new filter and oil - it's worth the peace of mind and cheaper than a new transmission!

AK88, surely your box is S-tronic which means gearbox oi changes every 38k miles. It was the biturbo which got the tiptronic/torque convertor gearbox.

I definitely have an 8 speed tiptronic, I know they aren't that common, I waited a while to find one
