boxster 2.7 safty mode ? maybe

Recommended Posts

So I finially started my car, its been sitting in my garage for close to 2 years now. Put in a new battery and started right up.

now the problem is, i think the car is in safety / retard mode. there is a light on the dash for the tiptronics transmission that flashes between D and 4th.

anyone know what that is? or how to fix it?

Does the car drive and shift ok?

When the "D" and "4" flash like that it means that the tiptronic control module has gone into the Limited Driving Program due to a fault.

What you should to is read the tiptronic history/faults with a durametric tool or tow it to the dealership or mechanic that has a pst2 or piwis tool.

If you have access to a lift or 4 jackstands so you can lift the car up completely level, you can try and check the tranny fluid and/or change it. Remember that to properly check the fluid level the car must be running.

Good Luck,
