I just picked up a   CPO 2016 911 GTS cab manual transmission with 1800 miles.  Prior owner didn’t drive it much! 

 

I notice a strong burning clutch smell after the “hold” feature engages and after a spirited drive. I don’t “launch “ or ride the clutch, nor redline shift. Is this smell normal? 

 

Also I have tried every which-way using the Charge-o-matic and get a blinking power light after a bit. I’m plugging into 12 volt in passenger foot well, switch ignition on and off, lock car and have tried with unlocked car. Same result. Any thoughts?  Thanks everyone- learned a ton from you all.

Simple: the hill holding system is slipping the clutch to hold the car in position.  Rather than burning up the clutch, use your brake pedal and forget this system exists, or expect an early clutch replacement.

Thanks.  I’m noticing it even with no hill hold after a spirited drive. Normal?

No, not at all normal.
