Unable to put Q-tronic into drive
Well a couple of months into purchasing a 2008 159 Q4, I have my first problem. Over the last few days when putting the selector into drive, I've noticed that it's actually gone into 1st (manual mode). I then have to flick it across and change manually. I've tried knocking it back and forth a bit and very occasionally I'll get D flashing up, but it won't usually stay there when I release pressure on the lever. The gearbox is actually functioning perfectly, it just won't let me decide in what mode.
Then just today, it's stopped recognising that I've put it into Park and therefore won't release my key. Grrrr!
I'm assuming it's just some switch in the selector which is worn or loose, but I'm loath to go poking around in there before knowing a bit more about what I might encounter. Any ideas folks? If it's something straightforward I'll have a crack at it myself instead of coughing up my hard-earned.
