We think its a wiring issue or maybe an open or short on a wire, for now we keep the maf unplug to have the reverse work till we find what is the reason behind it we know is not the maf itself but something related to it.

i will make sure to mention the fix if i ever get to the bottom of it.
Hi, I realize this is an old thread. Did you ever find a fix to this?
I'm having this issue where I have reverse for ~2 seconds, then it disengages
but if I go Neutral Reverse again, I get another 2 seconds of reverse.
Only when hot and reverse is fine when MAF is unplugged. MAF voltages
appear fine with +12V,+5V ref, ground and ~1.6V signal at idle.
Have scoured the net and nobody seems to have a solution for this.
Any info would be appreciated, thanks.

That could be a reason what I'm thinking, and also I can't locate the transmission dip stick anywhere around the engine compartment, where would I find that to check transmission liquid? Any suggestions or insights are appreciate it.
Thank you,
Have your torque converter checked out. I had the same problem and out of no where my Audi couldn’t go forward but reversed instead. I had different mechanics until I had one tell me it was not the transmission but the torque converter was bad and wasn’t producing enough power to move the car. When that happens the computer starts telling the car not to move from getting damaged.
