Thank you for holding Luis, The transmission control module controls the transmission shift points to the control solenoids and is separate units as well. The code 17125/P0741 indicates a torque converter malfunction. Audi has released a service bulletin dealing with this code as well that calls for replacing the torque converter due to an internal oil seal failure and if this is the code your actually getting then the service bulletin likely applies. I have enclosed the service bulletin as well in the link below for your review. [https://www.dropbox.com/s/sllt3hhsosal56j/Torque%20conveter%20Service%20bulletin%20Feb%2022.pdf?dl=0](https://www.dropbox.com/s/sllt3hhsosal56j/Torque%20conveter%20Service%20bulletin%20Feb%2022.pdf?dl=0)

I was thinking the same thing about it being the torque converter even though it feels like it’s could be the control module or something smaller since the car doesn’t shake and I had literally just did a 6-7 hour round trip in the car before it started stalling
Automotive Expert
When the converter seal fails, the transmission can not build pressure and with no pressure, it's not going to move. The code 17125/P0741 is in fact a torque converter code and not a transmission control module code.
