I can't tell if it's the turbo or the transmission or something else, but I do notice that I can take it out of Drive and use the triptronic shifter and it seems like it's working correctly. I would definitely find a way to get a scan tool somehow Partsource here in Canada does it for free if the message keeps showing up. Started it up again, the message was no longer there and it hasn't shown up since.
