I've tested the gear lever position against the "Selector lever position - Shift Position" data and it is okay

tested the gear lever data again - it still matches the gear position even with the intermittent fault code still showing on a scan

Intermittent fault codes, like all fault codes, don't necessarily represent the current state but the state when the fault was logged, so you should always clear them and then test.

Fault finding intermittent problems is always harder, you often need some luck to find the cause. The best approach is to check thoroughly ALL the connections.

I will say again that several UK Octavia DSG owners have had this problem and it's ALWAYS been a faulty gear selector switch.

Thanks, I will have to wait until I have an actual problem with the gear lever, to have it repaired under warranty .
hopefully it's just the infodapter throwing all these errors, as the airbag intermittent error was also gone (with the "starter system faulty" message/beep) once i got it disconnected .
had to reconnect it afterwards, as it's giving me the option use the WRX driving mode button with the Alpine multimedia screen

Any chance you could advise me on a part number or link for this gear selector switch please
Cheers

Sorry I don't have access to a part number catalogue.

Why not sign up to briskoda.net you'll find the answer on the Octavia 3 forum there, and plenty of other useful information from fellow Octavia III vRS owners :thumbs:
