When I put my Nissan Murano into drive it does just that drive but when I want to change into tiptronic you can not use the gears as it just stays in you have any ideas of the problem

You need to first have the transmission control computer tested for fault codes, this involves a trip to a transmission repair shop or a new car dealer service dpt.

I don't know what kind of 1999 carerra you are talking about; I have a 1999 carrera convertible, and both the front and engine hoods are opened when pulling on the appropriate lever next to the drivers seat. No fuse/solenoid involved.

1998 audi a6 2.8 quattro tiptronic doesnt work but auto still fine?

Google it - Check this LINK. If your horn or other steering wheel controls do not work, it's likely the clockspring - the device that transmits the inputs from the steering wheel into the wiring harness under the dash. Pray it's not, otherwise your Audi tech will be buying himself a new S4.

Hi, I am considering buying a 2001 Porsche 911 C4 Carrera Cabriolet with Tiptronic and has 34,000 miles for $29K. Does anyone know if there are any major issues with these cars. Thanks, for any advice....

no major issues to my knowledge. the carerra always reminded me of a highly modified v.w. with only 34.000 miles that car is just broke in. but, before you lay down 29gs. take it for a test run over to a reputable mechanic. to have checked out. if given a clean bill of health. go for it. just give it regular maintain. and you should be good to go for another few hundred thow miles or so..good day

2006 Jetta TDI Tiptronic Maintenance

The tiptronic is not the DSG - two separate transmissions. You don't need to service the tiptronic every 40k like you do the DSG.
VW considers the fluid in a Tiptronic tranny as "lifetime" fluid - it doesn't need to be changed.

Change out your fluid and filters!!

Go to and register (vehicle by VIN). Afterward, you'll have access to technical information (manuals, wiring diagrams, service bulletins, etc) about your vehicle.

Time for service B on my 04 C230 is this more than an oil change?

during the b service you replace the a/c dust filter and perform the oil change. To reset turn key on and scroll with page buttons on steering shell until you see the odometer reading(normal).next scroll up with arrow keys until you see the service interval screen. There should be a black button on the cluster possibly imprinted with an "r" hold that button until the screen displays -do you want to reset service interval. Release button and press again. You must hold that button for approx. 10 seconds before it will ask if you want to reset. Hopefully I have been helpful
