Beetles problem shifting

Recommended Posts

Good day.
I have a problem with my new beetles 2001 2.0 l engine.. Automatic transmission.. For the past 2 weeks whenever I go on a long way of 140 km/hr
Start observing a very rough down shift and I got weird about this issue and stopped aside and then went back to continue my way but unfortunately the gear doesn't shift up to 2 moreover the the rpm reaches to 4 & 5 without shifting.. So to solve this issue temporary i have to stop the car remove the key and then start it again.. Is there any solution for my vw beetles.??

The fact that an ABS light is showing suggests that the system is struggling to calculate a true road speed therefore it has gone to a limp home (default running) setting.
You would need to resolve the ABS issue - probably a wheel sensor fault which is cheap and easy to fix
