As i shift into 'S' i also hear the engine drop a gear so all is well here. Here are some of the features available - once you register at RennTech. After exceeding this speed car is starting to go down and error pop-ups. I had the key in the ignition if I remember correctly and put the new 20 amp fuse in and everything came on. Sounds like some dealers have found a cheaper way to fix it than replacing the whole switch assembly. Error is shown only while lowering the car. Thanks Chris The fault code is a good place to start.
Good luck, Ken Thanks Ken for this tid bit of info. I think some owners have done the magnet replacement themselves but I don't know the details. These codes tell you the trouble codes listed below have been registered. Only to come back again a bit later of course. It only happens when i put in in D.
It calls for a 20 amp fuse but the blown one in it was a 25 amp. If my answer helped you a positive testimonial is appreciated, good luck with your problem. I checked the fuse and it was blown. Front suspension is lowering without any problem, it applies only for rear. Or if these are unavailable as a whole unit, had anyone rebuilt their engine from the cylinder scoring or something similar and have a parts list of required seals and gaskets which need changed? This was cleared down and the car driven until the fault showed again. Yes it was the magnetic strip, Part 4B0-713-187-C.
She wouldn't click in I tried it a couple more times from a complete stop but no luck I hope it's working by tomorrow and just a little hiccup in the electronics, not to be seen again. I connected it to the computer and it is shown as P1400 - control position not adjustable. Just with going for lower position. Ya know, gotta keep them rings loose and them vanes working Well tonight after driving home 25mi on hwy I tried to use it comming off the hwy onto the exit ramp, to down shift and excelerate around the turn. Local workshop pointed it as a compressor problem, but in my opinion it is rather some kind of valve responsible for releasing the pressure then compressor, as I can not see problems with getting car higher.
There is no problem with going for higher position for example from normal to terrain. Essentially, it puts manual driving back in your hands. So, what exactly is the Tiptronic driving mode? I'm getting the back rebuilt by 928 Motorsports and reinstalling with an experienced friend. Error is shown only while lowering the car. And it normally only takes 10 minutes to install. I would highly recommend getting a good repair manual to guide you through this, and any future repairs.
Only to come back again when i next start the car. I'd definitely eliminate the F189 first though. However, upon retesting it there is no fault being shown? It may be possible the is one of the most underrated vehicles in our lineup. Have a look here: Rather than give Audi 150 quid, get a genuine vagcom from ilexa. The interior lights had gone off and I turned the back on and the backlight above to passenger side door was very dim. I wonder if they are related? Sorry, but that is bollox.
It is a well known failure though thankfully not too common since it is an expensive repair if the car isn't under warranty. I need pretty much the specifications for all the bolts and nuts that would be included in a block replacement. You could also have a look at the F125 connector on the box. Anything would help at this point. Have you ever considered creating an e-book or guest authoring on other blogs? If you are even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an e mail. Hopefully, lightning won't strike you twice. Check mechanical and pneumatic components - replace damaged parts.
There is no error while I am riding on terrain level and not exceeding a speed which is lowering the car. Also what happens is that sometimes when this fault is present and i drive over a significant bump in the road the fault seems to dissapear. Or will they replace it with the same faulty switch, that has the potential of failing again, possibly off of warranty As you can see from Tony's post the problem has been here as long as there have been B5's. We prefer that guests take part in our community and we offer a lot in return to those willing to join our corner of the Porsche world. Start by testing the F189 switch. What is the Volkswagen Tiptronic mode and how does it work? I will be very thankfull for your opinion as a specialists, as nearest Porsche dedicated workshop is like 300km from the place where I live.
You don't say what car you've got or where you are based. What does Tiptronic driving mode do? When error pop-ups I can see that front suspension is much lower then rear. For drivers who feel more comfortable with their hands on the wheel, you can also use the paddle shifters located on the steering wheel. I will be very thankfull for your opinion as a specialists, as nearest Porsche dedicated workshop is like 300km from the place where I live. I was wondering if this is common Correct, the dash display does not change and there is no tip shifting happening either.
