Passat tiptronic / sport mode help

Asked by Feb 11, 2016 at 10:02 PM about the 2006 Volkswagen Passat 2.0T

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So I have a 2006 Passat 2.0 T and I was messing
around with the tiptronic feature and I can't get it to
work. I put it in nuetral, shift right and it brings up
numbers 1-6 on my dash. I shift up and it only goes
up to 2, it won't go past second gear. Also it feels
like it stays in nuetral, like I don't get anywhere in
this mode, when I accelerate the RPMS go up but I
don't actually move. Also I'm wondering how to
access sport mode. I try to shift down all the way
and it won't go past "drive" any help would be
great.
