Paddle Gear shift

Post by Inoble » Mon Jan 11, 2021 5:08 pm

My wife has just bought a new Chequered Flag e pace P200. Should the paddle gear change work when in Drive, as I tried it the other day and nothing happened.? Works OK in S though

Hi .You can change the settings so it can be used in any selected gearbox mode or only S, via steering wheel access to settings. Remember to hold R/H paddle for a second or two if you accidentally turn it on to resume normal Gearbox operation.
Hope this helps you.

...........From The E Pace Manual........
While in D, move the gear selector one side movement to select S.

NOTES
Reverse this action to return to D.

To select manual gear changes while in S, pull the gear selector backward for up-shifts and forward for down-shifts. The message centre displays the manual gear selection statue.

The relevant gear selector indicator shows the status of manual gear selection:

Continuous illumination confirms the driver's gear change request has been recognised and selected.
On or off flashing confirms the driver's gear change request has been recognised but not selected.
Paddle shifts: Allows manual gear selection while in D or S. Lightly pull the left paddle for down-shifts, or lightly pull the right paddle for up-shifts. To exit manual mode, pull and hold the right paddle shift for approximately 1 second to return directly to the previous automatic operation in D or S.

NOTES
The paddle shifts can be configured to be active in both D and S, or active in S only, via the Vehicle Settings menu. See INSTRUMENT PANEL MENU.
