    Default Cannot select manual mode c5 al4

    I bought the car knowing I had to change the detent pin on the gear selector as shown here


    Gear shift lockup.

    The previous owner assured me manual mode used to work before, which could mean anything. After replacing the pin, manual doesn't work. Any ideas on what to check?

    Hi garethb,
    Looks like the usual suspects are on holidays so I will have a guess.

    The manual mode is just some "switches" sending a signal to the computer to change. Probably not actually real switches but a circuit board arrangement. This is built into the base of the stick so I would be looking there again. Perhaps you dropped a bit in there or the parts were forced into a different position when the detent pin jammed. If the box is working OK normally do not look there.

    Good luck Jaahn
