Customer: no

Hello, I am Jose Sebastian. Your automotive expert, It's a pleasure to me to attend your question. Thank you very much for trust in just answer.

Dear customer your Audi has a gear selector sensor that tells the computer what gear the transmission is in whenever we turn off the vehicle we must select gear p so that the transmission is in the best resting position it seems that the selector is not detecting this position of the gear lever that is why I am telling you that you must shift to p before leaving the vehicle.

Is there anything else I can help you with?

Customer: replied 4 days ago.
Do I need to change the selector

Dear customer I would not dare to tell you that you have to replace the selector but I do recommend that you check it.
