996 C2 Tiptronic reverse gear problem


Recommended Posts

Just yesterday, although the gear select lever goes into 'R' there is no drive, the vehicle doesn't move! Also the 'R' light on the dash is flashing. After trying a number times it eventually goes in drive with a judder. The fault is now intermittent, sometimes it goes into reverse and drives sometimes it doesn't! Any suggestions as to what is at fault? Thanks.

Get the car scanned with a Porsche specific diagnostic tool which can see Tiptronic faults. It may be something small like a single solenoid had failed, but with out diagnostics you are guessing in the dark.
