Tiptronic emergency run

Belching Piglet

Recommended Posts

Stock 2007 997 Turbo tip. No modifications whatsover.

On cold starts, sometimes i get a "beep" [warning beep] and a quick one second or less warning message = TIPTRONIC EMERGENCY RUN. (Had to video the error message as it was too fast to read)

Have sent the car to the local dealer but problem still persists.

Things they have tried are :

Change sensor

Clean the linkages and connectors

Problem only occurs when engine is left overnight..... and even then may not always throw out the error message.

Any ideas ??

Apparently the problem is the batter / alternator.

If the power is low, there is an error message. Once the battery is at full charge, i dont get this problem.

Checking the alternator charging now. There were some problems noted on the thickness of wiring in the cars apparently.

Battery drains because my car is not used much and when the car is cooling down, when the car is switched off, the battery can run the fans and that causes a drain....

This is what I have been told so far.
