Picking mine up tomorrow after a replacement gear shift switch. Will let you know if that's the end of the saga for me. One thing that slowed the job down is there is a special tool which de-energises the 12v side. Gone are the days where you just disconnect a battery!

After more than two weeks back at the dealership, we could finally pick up our ID.3 again last week. They had changed the 12V battery, the screen behind the steering wheel and the "gear shifter". It is also back in online mode (for the first time ever) and all seems to be working smoothly. Drove from Manchester to Edinburgh and back for a break, no problems and a pure joy to drive. A bumpy start, but *hopefully* all will now be well for years to come!

Hi..any update would be appreciated. The error message happens intermittently for me..goes for weeks without happening. When it happens it seems to be always after driving a couple of miles..there is a fleeting surge in speed and then warning appears and gears not lit. Tonight I noticed that you can't reverse when error warnings show. It always clears once I undo my seat belt. Its already been in the workshop and they couldn't find the problem. Its going in again for a week this time..but it may well not show up again. Any insight would be great.

I can’t really add much other than say I had it frequently

The annoying thing was that the car never seemed to log the fault. The VW master tech actually saw the fault himself, checked the logs and nothing showed. He escalated everything to VW, but I’m not aware of any real explanation.
