A low voltage battery can cause odd electrical issues. It may still start the car. Eliminate the battery first then scan for codes which may have vanished. VCDS digs a bit deeper than some code readers, it is as good as a main dealer system which is why it is a must with fault finding. It is guesswork otherwise.

How many of the faults listed where causing real issues?

I think the dealer has a VCDS system cause is ex official dealer so I do not worry on that. Thank you for the suggestion and I will follow your advice. Only the transmission press reg valve was real problem according to them cause it sent the gearbox in emergency mode. Lets wait if its going to happen again.
thank you and really appreciate your help. I will keep you posted

That’s the dealer ODIS system. Looks like you have some CAN communication faults.

Update:
The problem was solved. It was an electric disconnection of a cable in valve 3. Maybe I can not explain exactly where it was but no problem with the gearbox itself. Solved easy and cheap. Thanks to everyone who took time to answer!

Seems a bit strange if it was a solenoid in the box as that wouldn't be a cheap fix. Maybe the external cable connector or something. Did the fault come back after it was cleared?

Main thing it is fixed!!

Thanks for the update.
