Popping out of gear

Post by DesertBrewer » Fri Jan 03, 2020 9:32 am

I recently got my 2019 PW and I currently just have over 1000 miles on it and 3 times in the last week I have noted an interesting failure. It invariably happens when I am parking. When moving the selector from reverse to drive, it pops out of gear (after you can feel that it has switched into gear). There is a slight edging forward and then it stops and the gear selector indicator blinks. I tried cycling between the various selections and back to drive, it typically takes several tries. I have tried turning off the engine and that doesn't clear the issue. The last time I was able to clear it by driving in reverse some (fortunately there was room), and then drive work, but then it locked my rear axle. It's possible I hit that button by mistake, but I doubt it.

I thought I would mention it in case there was some 'feature' I was unaware of.

Thanks for any thoughts.

Interesting issue. That's definitely something critical to immediately contact your dealer about, especially for the truck being so new.

Sounds like some kind of glitch in the auto park. You didn't have the door open or ajar by chance, did you?
