Drive selector issue

Post by Nick Jan » Fri Feb 19, 2021 12:40 am

Returned to my parked ID3 today, selected drive B (which lit up), pressed accelerator gently and the car started to reverse!? Re-selected drive setting all then ok. It was a tad unnerving; anyone else had that experience, or any thoughts?

Thankfully, no. Did the car beep when it selected reverse and did the rear camera show on the infotainment screen?

Mine was once just sinking back (is it correct in english) as I didn't pushed the accelerator enough. ;)

That sounds worrying. Re other replies did you get that horrible beep noise to confirm you are about to go backward. If not I would go with the roll theory and not enough right foot.
Hope it gets resolved.

I can't recall whether there was a beep when I selected forward drive B. I'm hoping you're right that it may have been roll-back, as random gear selection seems too alarming to contemplate!
