My Sport Button no longer works

The Sport button fails to work in my car. Has any one had this problem and is their a easy fix or answer? Leading up to this the sport button was hair trigger sensitive when and the car would go into sport mode when ever I ever
i got near the shifter.

Any easy solutions of answers? The fun has just been taken out of the car

If you pry apart the auto shifter there are some fragile wires ( blue and white) that lead up to the Sport button. I have seen several come loose from their placement and the repetition of selecting gears can break them clean.

Good luck, let us know what you find.

Thanks Nick,

I will take the shifter apart and let you know what I find that the wires have separated.

Thanks

fragile is not even the right word. be careful, the shifter fits together just so with the wires in just the right spot...

I have pried open the shifter to the side just enough to see the wires which seem to attached properly. I have not figured out how to take the shifter apart with out ruining/ damaging the shifter. I pulled and pried on an the rubber pieces and it seems if I continue I will just f''k it up. any sudjestions.

So the blue and white wires can come un attached at the the underneath side of the button is what to look for and be aware of. How in the hell do you take the shifter apart.

thanks

I don't have the instructions handy. It's been a while... but you need to put the car in a certain gear, this puts the lever at the correct angle to expose a tiny tiny screw(s). I think you need a hex key/allen wrench I could be wrong, like I said it has been a while.

I forget what else. hopefully someone with WIS can chime in. I won't have access to mine for a few hours yet

T10/T15 Screw holds the front together.

Then a c clamp on the metal rod hold the rear part together.

When reassembling be careful not to break that screw nor cut the Sport button wires. Its a bitch... Ask me how I know.
