Hi guys!

It's been awhile since I last posted...

Anyway the day which I have been fearing since the time I bought this new technology has finally arrived!!! After 12,000 km in my 09 CS, i finally encountered a problem with my PDK tranny.

Since I have been traveling alot the past few weeks, I took the car out for the first time after 2 months. Car seemed to work pretty well until late afternoon. I went to my inlaws house, parked the car in the middle of the driveway, about 30 mins later I started the car again and when I tried to shift it to "D" the shifter wouldn't shift and move (can't get it out of "P")!!!

Tried to turn off the engine and turn it on again several times but the problem would continue to exist. A friend told me to try to disconnect the battery for 15 minutes which would allow the system to reset but even that didn't work. In fact after I reconnected the battery, a PSM Failure message started to appear.

Has anyone experienced this problem or has any idea of what might have gone wrong?

Cheers!

Godspeed!

You will have hook up the scanning tool and look for fault codes. Your car is still under warranty so I would get it to a dealer and let them deal with it. Let us know what happens.

hey guys! thanks for the inputs. unfortunately the problem might be bigger. car is at the dealer already but they are still awaiting word from Germany since they had to refer the case to them. their initial finding was the ECU of the PDK is messed up!

this sucks.....
