2007 Volkswagen Beetle Question: Where is the Automatic Transmission Control Module located? What does it do?

this is an automatic transmission. The car has75000 miles on it and the transmission is starting to slipping. -
Answer 1
The 'automatic transmission control module' ----CONTROLS THE AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION , based on inputs from a variety of engine , trans and possibly suspension and body sensors. What kind of service history do you have with the trans? -
Comment 1
I just had the transmission fluid changed. The car has not had any problems until now. -
Comment 2
Was the fluid change done at the dealer using factory fluid? WORST case scenario-- did you have it 'flushed' , with who knows what brand of fluid( even though it may have been labeled as VW compatible)? If it was aftermarket fluid , I would get it drained & filled at least twice with VW fluid , maybe that might help with the slipping. -
