CEL & DCT Transmission Light

Hey guys,

Need some advice. I recently got a CEL that cleared by itself after a couple days of driving (car drove normally, no limp mode) and a dct tranny light that also cleared by itself. The tranny light came on b/c I pressed on the gas before the gear engaged in reverse and the gear popped out. Turned the car off and restarted and it went away, tranny shifts normally. So my question is, should I take my car into the dealership to diagnosis if these cleared?

I had a similar thing happen to my car over the weekend. I took it to the dealer who put the scope on it and they said it stored a "insignificant code". They erased it and said not to worry about it. Before I took it to the dealer the car ran great and the CEL reset itself on the first restart after it came on.

So it's up to you but you might want the dealer to put the scope on it just to be safe.

Yeah, definitely have it checked just to make sure it's insignificant and not the DCT shifter issue that others have ignored. Apparently the shifter issue is actually an issue that must be addressed ASAP (you can search for threads on this). Sounds like your issue is probably nothing though.

It's been about a month since the last CEL warning message came up about the DCT. Happened again today. After restart, warning light is off. When it happened last time (see above), dealer scanned it and said not to worry about it. I don't think I am going to bother to have the dealer scan it again.

Looks like this will be a constant thing with this car.
