Tiptronic Emergency Run Message

Recommended Posts

I've got a 05 Boxster S with 32,000 miles go into Tiptronic Emergency Run Mode - Dash indicator says it's in 4th gear. It shifts from start until 4th gear and won't go over 3000rpm. I'm going to guess this is limp mode.

I was backing into a parking spot after a 30-40 minute drive and when I put the car in park the Tiptronic Emergency Run Message came on the dash. I tuned the car off and re-started the car and the Message changed to put car on P or N then the Tiptronic Emergency Run Message came back on.

I drove it straight to Tacoma Porsche and dropped it off. The service writer has never seen that message and cannot look at it for a few days.

Anybody got any suggestions or maybe a good Porsche mechanic around the Tacoma Washington area?

The day before this issue occurred I had new tires put on the front. Is there a sensor or calibration they may have damaged or missed that would effect the transmission?

Are the tires the same sizes as the previous tires?

Yep, they found a low voltage code and reset the code and the Tiptronic Emergency Run cleared. I've driven it for 180 miles with no issues. I guess the Boxster is sensitive to low voltage.

 

Thank you for the follow up!

I am having the same issue.  I have a 2003 Porsche 911 C4.  I recently had the same code " tiptronic emergency run" come up on the dash.  Turned the car off for a few minutes and restarted the car.  I then had the same warning and the "check engine light" came on.  I brought it to my Porsche garage.  The removed the transmission pan, checked and cleaned the filter and changed the transmission fluid.  The code then disappeared during their test drive.  I picked up the car and the next day I once again got the Tiptronic Emergency Run error message and Check engine light.

 

Any ideas.  The service centre thinks it may be something to do with the throttle body housing but I am not sure.

 

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

 

thanks

 

Mario
