I'm trying to pin down a Tiptronic issue...

Recommended Posts

... for a friend of mine.

He has a 2004 S SE-550 with less than 4000 miles (no typo) on the odometer, but now out of warranty due to time.

The issue is that the tranny will sometimes indicate that it has shifted from D to N although it is still in D.

Sometimes it actually shifts itself into N.

This generally happens when you shift from park to Drive, bu can also happen sometimes when going over rough terrain such as RR tracks.

The car shows no errors in the Tiptronic or ECU or Cluster or anywhere else.

The Dealer has already replaced the Multifunction Switch, has adjusted the cables and recently replaced, under Porsche good-will the tranny's Controller.

But the problem still persists.

He brought it over to the shop while the car was having the issue and I was able to connect the PST II to it and actually see that the Multifunction Switch opens and closes by itself with the car idling, in Drive.

I'm just trying to find out if anyone else with a Tiptronic has gone through similar problems and what the final solution was so that my friend can finally start enjoying his "old" new car.

I don't have a lot of experience with Tips.

Happy Boxstering,
