Automatic Alhambra locking itself down into first gear. What is the problem?

Asked by Apr 18, 2013 at 09:14 AM about the 2004 Seat Alhambra

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My SEAT Alhambra (same as VW Sharan) 1.9Di automatic suddenly flipped into first
gear and revved like crazy. First time I turned engine off and the problem disappeared,
second time it seemed to be locked in first revving like mad and had to be towed.
Garage says it is a contacts problem and that I need part 7M3713203e-mcu - does this
make sense? Under useless warranty. Have waited 11 weeks so far for part to be
manufactured!!! Enclose page from diagnostics. Please help!

Tha'ts in French...or something...I enlarged it but might as well be Greek as the saying one in English so we can help? Meantime, no it does not make sense..the part about the part you need 'has to be manufactured' wassup with that?
