HI,

I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question.

The tiptronic light blinking means that the tiptronic control module has detected a fault in the tiptronic transmission system and will require being scanned with a Porsche scan tool to retrieve the fault codes. Possible causes range from incorrect gear ratio, control module failure, wiring short or open circuit, solenoid or pressure switch
