New car options programming issues?

Recommended Posts

Okay, just picked up my 2016 GT4 last week... some funny things I have noticed since then. Wonder if these would be caused by not having the car programmed correctly for the options it has?


  • There is no Wiper option in the Vehicle / Settings / Light & Visibility section as described in the manual... I have the rain sensing wiper option and the sensor seems to be physically present but no option in my menu to set it to automatic versus manual operation.


  • Auto dimming mirrors do not seem to dim for exterior... the interior mirror has the buttons and sensor but the outside mirrors do not dim at night along with the interior rear view mirror.  According to the options code all mirrors should dim together.


  • The Hill Hold does not work... I see the HOLD light up during startup self check of the car but when on a hill the car rolls back and there is no light in the dash. On my 2014 991 (that was also manual trans) the hill hold worked fine and when active the green HOLD light would show. 

Has anyone seen stuff like this before? I know with VW/Audi and a Vag-Com you can set features like these electronically so I am wondering if somehow Porsche forgot to set these on my car. I plan to take it to the dealer to fix but wanted to see if this has happened before.
