    It's been at least 8 years that I did one but it's at the back of the gearbox. I don't remember requiring VCDS or VAS to get going. The part came from the dealership and my shop replaced the old part.

    Yes, the F125 switch, this is inside the box and part of the ECU unit with these boxes. The switch is magnetic and is often covered in metallic particles from normal transmission wear. Once I tried cleaning the particles off but after all that work and fluid I still had to pull it apart again and fit a new ECU. ALL this is conjecture though without a fault code report and I don't think this thread should go any further without one, it is into page 2 now and we have no code report which is silly.
    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
