DSG not upshifting from 3rd to 4th? Is it broken?

Hiya,


need a little bit of advice...


- A week ago, under WOT, the tranny refused to auto-shift from 3rd to 4th. Engine and tranny and everything was warm. The engine just stayed at redline.

- This morning, engine cold, tranny cold (3 min into my drive, ambient around 15C), the tranny refused any upshift paddle commands from 3rd to 4th gear. After I cycled D and S mode, the tranny resumed normal shifting.


Any ideas?


Thanks.

Possibly Mechatronic issues ?
Are you covered by warranty ?
Any codes recorded ?

I've had this happen before, where it would bog down at WOT and just won't shift into 4th from 3rd. Still trying to investigate.
