I bought a 99 audi a4 1.8T but the tip tronic does not work. You move it to the position and nothing changes, like its basically in auto mode. Steering wheel controls do not work also. Anyone have a clue what it might be?

most likely a chip issue. is it throwing any codes?

if not then id say it needs to be looked at, but thats me lol.

There are magnets under the tiptronic shifter. Most likely they are out of place. Search for the fix.

Yes sir. Your Tip magnets have likely escaped. You should go find them. (Hint: they like metal).
