Thanks for that, I guess it is the price we pay to develop mind-blowing technology.
Well, I have the diagonsis now and the result is grim! After multiple attempts to reset the PDK brain, the conclusion is that i need another (new) transmission to the tune of about $25K for R&R and new transmission. This a know problem tho' rare. Remindes one of something called "IMS"! Eh? I am getting a second opinion, but I think I am screwed. If I sell it as is, it's a big lose and I still need a "new" car, or if I fix it the bottom line on my investment goes up by 25K but I still have my Porsche..... I guess it is a no-brainer. 😒
I now have it in for diagnosis at a reputable Porsche shop.
Just to be clear, the shifter isn't frozen, it seems normal, but seems like the transmission doesn't get the message.
Yes, I have a "FIXD" device that reads the codes, and told me that there were no error codes!!🙁 Maybe I will go check again. Thanks for the note.
Went to the garage, started my car, pulled out of the garage, braked to stop to check that my garage door closed (5 sec max), applied some gas and nothing happened. When I tried to change the gear selection, the gear indicator in the tachometer didn't show at all. Pushed it back into the driveway as best I could. I have tried it several times with no luck. No fault lights have come on!! I looked here in the forum but didn't see any postings that were similar. Five days previous to this event, I returned from a spirited, three state sampling (1900mi) of the twistys and mountain roads, only smiles as a result. Anyone have any thoughts?
