Hi All - first of all thanks for any insight. I'm puzzled.
2013 Beetle Convertible, I've owned since 2017. Amazing car, never any issues. Has 78k miles. Had not been driving it a lot in the past few years so when I returned to my commute 2 months ago (@40 miles each way) I decided to get the oil changed and the transmission flushed just to make sure the car was happy. NO mechanical issues before this or frankly after - it purrs and has no issues but... A day after the trans flush/replace I drive to work, no problem but on the way home from work the check engine light comes on about 4 miles before i get to my house. I've literally never even seen that light before because - no problems since I've owned the car.
Take it to the dealership, they pull the codes and get P0106 Manifold/Barometric Pressure Sensor and 01314-013 Engine Control Module.
They say that they "found 01-14-23 Update Programming, MIL ON, DTC P0106 Manifold Absolute Pressure Range/Performance stored in ECM Fault Memory" They checked my ECM software version and found it was 4729. They updated the ECM software to version 5854. They also noticed that the intake maifold bolts were loose and that the intake maifold gasket was leaking so they replaced the gasket. In addition they removed and replaced the manifold seals, reinstalled that manifold, torqued the bolts and cleared the faults.
Then I picked it up, drives great home. I go to work the next day, no problems either way until...4 miles from my house on the way home the DING DANG CHECK ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON AGAIN!!
I went to Autozone this morning (Saturday, dealership service dept is closed) and had the codes pulled, same codes P0106 and 01314-013.
Going back to the dealership Monday but trying to help them with an idea of what's going on by doing some research.
It feels like this must be a software thing since the car is running great and no changes. It only happened after they flushed the transmission - could that cause a software glitch? Seems unlikely. I checked all fluids this morning, the steering fluid seems a bit low but everything else is perfect. Any and all ideas welcome - at this point they're spinning their wheels as am I and I'm in hell having to keep bringing my car back and finagling a family members car to drive to work. Really hoping this is something someone else has seen before so that I can find that way out of it.
THANKS EVERYONE!!

P.S. Should add so far all I've found pertaining to this was a guy who said he had a similar issue and it was a software update tied to this (attached) Bulletin. But this is pretty old and his post was 4+ years ago so I figure it isn't this.
