just posting this in case someone gets these same codes and wants to jump to the easiest possibility
i had a friend over yesterday with problems he was claiming no "get up and go" and random stalls with 3 bars on dash (2005 cabrio)
pulled codes and came up with p2402 and p2403 ..both listed as intermittent
test drive confirmed 3 bars at least 5 times in less than 5km of driving...also slight vehicle roll/engine rocking when parked and shifting from neutral and reverse...which was odd as my car does not do that
...pulled off fork actuator and dimple was almost punched thru even though i greased it myself at least twice last year
brazed a nut on the rod and rounded it off a bit to clear the trans hole...left the rod protrude a bit just so it doesnt slip out of position ...erased codes and a went for a nice long test drive to confirm repair and it was a total success....no ocdes..no "stalling" (which was actually just the inability to speed up that he described as a stall)..no bars and no more codes
so long story short if you get these codes that say transmission blocked etc,...p2402 or p2403 check your actuator for hole wear
yeah i didnt notice that until after i purchased and installed it that it was 5.00.12 instead of the 5.00.8 that you posted
now that im invested a small amount into it id like to see it work instead using another version ...might just get a different snooper that is compatible with this instead of sharing the ds150e (dont really want to risk screwing it up with upgrade unless someone knows for sure it will work)
