Hello All!

New to Ross-Tech, VCDS, and the forum - looks like a cool place!

So, I've just spent the last two years rebuilding a B7 S4, I rebuilt the engine, and the mechatronics unit with new solenoids, separator plate, stem seals, etc. Before installing the engine, I also replaced brittle connectors on just about every plug in the engine bay with new ones.

I've started the car and driven around the neighborhood - the engine runs great but it shocks into gear on every shift (even 6th!). I expected like this if it had learned poorly flowing old solenoids during it's past life, but my problem is I cannot get the transmission to reset learned values. The Basic Settings button under automatic transmission is grayed out on VCDS and I cannot select it. I tried Adaptives Reset with moving forward and backward 20meters, but that doesn't seem to have helped at all. If someone could help guide me on how to activate the transmission learned values reset, I'd appreciate it.

Second issue - ESP G419 No Communication. I thought maybe the unit died while the car sat as a shell for a few years, or maybe a voltage spike, etc. etc. I replaced the unit and the ESP light and ABS light are still on. All the fuses on driver side dash are OK, battery voltage is OK, in VCDS I can see plausible wheel speeds from all four corners, steering sensor plausible values too. Not sure where to look next. Some suggestions would be appreciated!

How many of those fault codes are current? There look to be some that MAY be historical - try clearing all fault codes and see which remain would be my suggestion for the first step.

I don't see any explicit "learned values" reset in this TCM.

Slamming into every gear sounds like a pressure control problem, but I'm by far not an expert on automatic transmissions.

Thanks for the info guys! Do you think the MAF would cause these hard shifts?

Does anyone know why my Auto Trans> Basic Settings button has been grayed out and not selectable? Is there any advise on how to enable it?

When it is grayed, it means there is no Basic Settings in that Control Module.
Why do you think there should be Basic Settings to do some reset ?

There is erase of clutch in Adaptation Channel 01

PART 1
Accelerates the car from standstill at very low torque 80-120 Nm
(MBW 002.4) in drive D to 4th gear
Then let the car roll down at speed to 40 km / h
without operating the brake and then braking to a standstill.
Wait for 5 sec. and then repeat the process 3 times.
See MBW 074.2 and 075.4 and 077.2 must be> 1

PART 2
Drive purposefully 3 ... 4 km with a torque of approx. 60-120 Nm
in Tiptronic in 5th gear (Mon.) at 1600 ... 2800 min-1
Then accelerate the car and continue in Tiptronic 6.gear (Mon.)
with 1600 ... 2800 min-1 additional 3 ... 4 km
When 1600 min-1 is reached, the next adjustment step is automatically continued.
See MBW 075.2 and 075.4 must be> 1

PART 3
Drive the Tiptronic car in 5th gear (man) between 1400 ... 2100 min-1 for one minute
and then let the rpm drop to 1400 min-1
The process is repeated 3 times.
Drive the car up at 1900 min-1
See MBW 073.4 must be> 1

PART 4
Hold for one minute the car in Tiptronic in 3rd gear (man) with 60 Nm
torque in the range 1400 ... 2100 min-1
and then slow down to a standstill.
The process is repeated 3 times.

The B7 has the 6hp19 ZF transmission - I was pretty sure people had referenced using basic settings to reset adaptive values, etc. for the automatic transmission. Of course, maybe I had seen incorrectly about that.

I'll look into the MAF, and try doing the relearn with Adaptation channel 01.
AFT is the right level.

The clutch adaptions can be reset in the ZF 6HP19 transmission, but can only be reset by a VW specific diagnostic tool like VCDS from around 2007MY (at least here in the UK) unless the TCM software is reflashed by a dealer. The reflash may have a related TPI which may require a different ATF. The adaptions can be reset on earlier vehicles using a ZF tool which is probably only available to ZF themselves.

I very much doubt that pressing the reset button will fix this issue you have though; the transmission will adapt to where it needs to be regardless of whether or not a reset has been carried out so maybe try NETech's procedure above. As per other suggestions above though, there is probably an issue that needs fixing.
