Just want to ask if anyone else has had their sensors on their R Tronic replaced and what the life has been?
I had the g616 and g604 sensors replaced by local Audi dealer in Australia in 2016 after multiple gearbox malfunction lights coming on and the vehicle not being able to re start after turning ignition off.
Since that time I have only driven just over 2000kms, as I work from home and don't drive too much other than short trips a few times a week at the most.
Last week I got the same gearbox error light, and once again stranded on the side of the road as the car would not re start.
Got to Audi dealer, they diagnosed and said the same sensors are stuffed and also need to replace a wiring harness!
I asked why the sensors only lasted just over 2000kms of driving and I was told its not the kilometres its how many times the car is started and stopped!
So I worked out roughly based on my Ks travelled and times driven and it came out to 250 start and stops!
I am pretty sure a part is suppose to last longer than 250 start and stops, even if that's a unit of life expectancy measure!!
I have written to Audi in Germany to query the life of these sensors, taking into consideration there is only two years warranty on the parts. And I have had mine for three years but only driven over 2000kms! Or 250 start and stops if I am to go by their explanation (Excuse)!
Any help or other experiences would be truly appreciated.
