Yep - that sounds familiar. Only ever happened to me when (a) it was cold and (b) hadn't been used for quite a while. No issues when without conditions (a) and (b) together, and not recurred since before I mentioned this in my previous post on this thread.

Well that was less than 2 years ago and today, for the first time since, a scan (pre-MOT) has shown:
01119 - Gear Recognition Signal 35-10 - - - Intermittent

At least I know not to panic...

As if it will not do with only one issue, eh?
At least you can use the car while waiting for an opportunity to fix the problems

Sadly, I'm having to refer to this write-up again, as Herman has been throwing a PRNDS fit intermittently, and just before Mark's funeral, which couldn't be worse timing .

Here's hoping it's just the contact terminals that need a clean-up, particularly as this unit was only replaced with a new one in 2017

I cleared an F125 fault on car that had be stood for a while by putting the gear leaver through all it's positions repeatedly but gently at speed. Worth a try if the codes point to the F125 switch.

Thanks Mike, no VAGCOM here, so can't guarantee it's the F125, but i'm pretty sure that's the case. It was persistently showing this for three days in a row, even with gentle persuasion, which I've not had before. Then it cleared yesterday, and I took him for a good 20 minute drive then, making sure I exercised the 'box without thrashing it, but now it's back again, so I've left him with my local (trusted!) mechanic to see if cleaning the contacts helps.
