e-Golf (2017) drove forward when "R" on gear lever selected

Wed Jun 09, 2021 5:59 am

Hi,

my wife just called me, that she set "R" on gear lever, back camera went on, but the car went front. She tried this 3 times and always the same.

What helped was remove keys and start car again. However, this is not what I except from safe car. Is this known issue and is there fix for this? I second owner of this car, so that I am not sure how this works. Are issues like this, when car seems to be dangerous covered by vehicle manufacturer?

Thanks,

Jindrich

Not heard this before. Park engages a mechanical lock but I believe all other “gears” are electronic. Motor can either spin forwards or backwards depending on current flow.

Was car on a hill?
