Hey everyone, i own a 2010 porsche Boxter 2.9L with the PDK transmission.. yesterday after leaving the car for a 4 days i started it and went for a drive.. when i turned it on again, i got a warning message “emergency transmission run” and the car became very jerky through gearshifts and wouldnt accelerate properly.. after turning it on and off the message went away and it drove just fine but then it kept re-appearing mid drives and becomes very jerky and clunky...ive noticed since i had the car that the gearbox was sometimes clunky or would make a noise when changing gear but the dealership said that was fine and normal since its a PDK, the car is at 59,000km so its time for a transmission fluid change... could this be a low voltage problem, or transmission fluid? The reverse gear works just fine.. has this happened to any other owners?
Need some help diagnosing to fault codes in my ECM Module.

U0146: Lost communication with "Gateway A"
Searching Google only found two other Porsches with the same issue and they were undiagnosed. Now searching those faults individually found other vehicles had those faults when cracks developed in the Instrument Cluster solder joints, people disassembled their Instrument Clusters, resoldered all the joints and the fault went away.
Has anyone else had these faults or experience with them. I recently relocated from Arizona with glass smooth roads to the Los Angeles area and the roads are horrible!!! Just in the last 3-weeks my drivers door lock assembly failed and window goes up and down like crazy and difficult to lock door, I believe this failed due to the rough roads, these faults also developed at the same time, which leans me towards cracked solder joints in the Insteument Cluster. Car runs and drives fine, just have these faults now.
I have been lurking since I bought my 2009 Cayman base with PDK a few months ago and have already learned a lot from you guys. I am not new to cars, but am new to Porsche. I am coming from the American muscle and 4x4 world (my main addiciton is 66-77 Ford Broncos) and have a lot to learn about Porsche in general. I have searched and searched and have not been able to find anything regarding the issue I am having so I hoped some of the experienced 987.2 owners could help. Everything has been great with the car since I purchased it and I really enjoy the car. Over the past few days I noticed the transmission acting odd at low speed. In the morning I let the car warm up for around 5 minutes while I make my coffee and then I slowly drive out of my neighborhood. Just recently I noticed that at low speed and low rpm the throttle will blip (rpms jump 100-300 rpm as it changes gears) when upshifting from 1st to 2nd and 2nd to 3rd. Once I pull out of the neighborhood and accelerate with a little heavier throttle there are no issues. This only occurs at very low speed and low rpm. The car shifts as it should once I give it a little more throttle.
I know the PDK blips the throttle on downshift, but I cannot find anything about a blip on upshift. Hopefully this is normal and I am just being paranoid, as I am prone to be, but any input from longtime PDK drivers would be very greatly appreciated. Thank you for all your help so far and hopefully you can give me some advice on what I am currently experiencing.

Frequently, when I park and shift from Drive to Park - the transmission sticks making it hard to get out of drive and makes a 'click' noise. This does not feel normal - but is it? Anyone else have or had this issue or have any ideas around issue?
