I don't know exactly. Could have been low hydraulic fluid level, could be failing smg motor. The only faults it threw were for not enough pressure in SMG (points to a failing motor or low fluid) and clutch activation/position deviation that usually accompanies the other fault code most time . No other fault codes. The PLCD was relatively new, as it was replaced before. But I went to delete the codes and they were gone. I will check from time to time. Also, I did the transmission/clutch adaptation and it improved the whole usability of the SMGIII. So far, I drove more for more than 2 weeks and did not see the red cog again.
But there are also 2 things that are different: the weather is cooler and I drive only in S 5 P500. Don't know if the temperature have any effect on the SMG functioning.
And yes, I also put in a new SMG motor and new hydraulic fluid.
