fault code 1045- tiptronic-selector lever switch

Recommended Posts

I had my 05 s tiptronic gear shifter fixed over a year ago when it started acting intermitently. Sometimes it would not up**** or downshift even after mulitiple tries. It would just sort of get stuck. Dealership fixed it. I think they replaced some component maybe a switch in the gear shift mechanism. I just recently had the same problem return ad this time the gear shifter itself started feeling broken. First the car wouldnt shift all the time then the shifter itself started getting harder to shift into any position. Like it was breaking physically. Dealership made it like new again. The correct "feel" is back and it shifts every time. My question is why does my durametric software come up with fault code 1045 that i cannot erase? When I try to erase that code the program just hangs with the arrows spinning. Ive left it hanging for over 10 minutes thinking maybe this fault just takes longer. TRied it 6 times. Fault wont go away. Do I maybe still have a problem with my selector lever switch? should I be concerned? Maybe it wasnt repaired correctly?

Fault Code 1045 - Selector lever switch

Possible causes:

- implausible signal

Could loose or damaged wiring, a bad selector switch. or even a bad Tiptronic controller.

You are going to need to investigate the wiring and switch to be sure.
