Cayenne V6/3.2 SHIFT probelem reverse


Recommended Posts

Has anyone noticed on a 2004 Cayenne V6 when you move you shift from D (drive) to R (reverse) the R gear in not engaging? When I shift from (D) Drive to ® Reverse my gear box light ® lights up indicating that the gear is in reverse the instrument cluster display shows my gear is in N neutral and my baby will not back up because is in neutral. In order to engage the R reverse i need to shift a bit forward between the P (parking) and the R (reverse) in order to engage and lock into position the R (reverse). I am taking in to check it out. your feedback is greatly appreciated. Thanks Kostas

Just signed up for this forum and noticed your question. The answer is - yes- my CTT actually is worse. It drove forward while it was in R. I checked and rechecked by moving the gear in and out of P,R,N and five tries later, I turned off the engine and waited. I was mm's from hitting the wall. Then it worked correctly and has not had that particular problem for awhile.

Unfortunately, because of the gear selector randomly refusing to shift, my attorney is pursuing the lemon law.

The symptoms indicate that the selector lever cable is not adjusted properly. This should be easy to fix.

Very interesting! I've had my CT in to the service department 4 times for this problem - intermittently refusing to shift down from 6th to 5th, 5th to 4th, etc.

It wouldn't surprise me if the solution was simple. They've replaced the gear control unit twice and upgraded software twice.

Thanks for the answer,

Peppert
