i own an 01 2.8Q Avant w/ 51000 miles

heres the story...
last night i was at a stop sign waiting to pull into traffic. when i got the chance i pulled out and felt a huge thud like someone rear ended me or something. i looked in my rear view and noone was there. i suddenly felt the car get sluggish like it didnt want to pick up with my foot mashing the gas pedal. i put the car in tip mode and noticed it didnt function. i dropped it into all gears and only PRND worked. the display on the cluster still has the D highlighted no matter what gear i select. now the car feels like its stuck in third as when i went to launch it was very sluggish. when i get up to speed it feels ok but i drove on the highway doin 65 @ 3700 rpm so im guessing it wont get into fifth gear. i believe i might be in limp mode as i read some similar occurances when i did a search on these boards.

i had the car vag'ed by a friend and this is what i got:

thanx. i already searched those last night and some of the issues werent resolved. there was also too many possibilities as i have read could be the problem. where do i start? mostly everyone has the same symptom which is the inverted color on the PRND4321 and i only have drive highlighted...some have different codes in the system while i havent found anyone that has my code. ive searched as much as im prepared to and was hoping i can get some new feedback then some of the old ones in the AZ search. [up]

Haven't driven through a lot water lately have you? Or an engine wash? That happened to my car after an engine wash one time. I had forgotten to cover a couple connections with baggies and it shorted out for a week or so until it completely dried out.

Did replacing the TCM resolve your issue? I'm having the same problem with my girls car. :(
