i now have a 2003 VW beetle that was wrecked in front. it had to have a new radiator, ac condenser, & several body parts. after all assembly, the automatic trans. is stuck in 3rd gear. one mechanic has checked with his computer, & says it is " not getting fire to the transmission" . i'm guessing he means control voltage, from the computer. possibly a connection broke during the wreck? i don't know yet. i will not get the car, till tomorrow. my first question is, should'nt it be stuck in first? instead of 3rd. the other question is, where would be the best source to get info. on troubleshooting, & service checks required to make repairs. i hope i don't have to go to the dealer for this. has anyone had any dealings with a critter like this one?
