Hi I am trying to experiment with the transmission coding to try to improve the non-sensical shifting performance. I've read about switching to ROW mapping as well as turning off DSP, but no matter what I try I get Error 31: out of range. Current setting is 000002, I've tried 000001, 000012, 000011, nothing appears to work. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I've read about switching to ROW mapping as well as turning off DSP,
Are you sure what you've read about is applicable to this transmission? Such changes were possible in substantially older transmissions, but t would surprise me if that transmission's behavior can be altered via coding. The TCU has USA specific software in it, and this software (along with its shifting behavior) is part of the vehicle's emissions certification, so my guess is that coding changes are locked out in the software.

Thanks for the reply. I guess it is mostly wishful thinking that those codings would work on my transmission.

Good morning,
on the T3 touareg, this seems possible with strong improvement when coding to cayenne coding.

I owned a facelifted touareg, and helper is not present. Maybe different module. I'm looking for input to try it.

How is this relevant to the topic here? The T'Reg and Cayenne use an AISIN transmission. The A7 uses a ZF transmission. They are totally different transmissions!

Come on, don't be so rude...
Op is asking for input on transmission coding (ROW coding vs US I guess).
I shimed because it is possible on other platform, in my case the touareg, with positives results.
I know it's not the same transmission, but other manufacturers may include this kind of mod as well !
