    P173B - Gear Position Distance Sensor 2 : Implausible Signal


    Suddenly this morning my Passat decided only to run on Gear 1 and Gear 3. It is skipping Gear 2 and not going any further than Gear 3. Also it is not running at all in reverse gear. I got this code P173B after running computer diagnostic.

    If anyone can please give some information about the fix would be really appreciated

    Please post an Auto-Scan for context; so people can see exactly what transmission and transmission controller you have.
