Transmission overheating driving in areas with traffic lights but on the highway it doesn't. Seems like the fan I thought but fans kick on when I checked them. Although they kick on but to me it doesn't blow enough. Is there any thing else that might create the overheating?

Sounds like a dodgy thermostat on the tranny cooling and or pump. There is a coolant pump just near the bulkhead (firewall US speak). After a run, feel it, it should be vibrating/buzzing when working. Also low oil in the tranny can give overheats. Also if yours is the S tronic pre 2012/2013, then some of the common faults can give abnormal readings.

@SimonRoma - Manual boxes don't usually have temp monitoring. :)
