Post 986 Tiptronic steering wheel buttons not working

Hello i am new here, my 2003 986 tiptronic S, 3.2 driving home today i thought id put in M and drive manual using the steering buttons, Nothing happened, went into M ok, no faults flashing on dash, and if i put my foot down it will change up,

Drive works perfect,

I have checked the Horn and it works fine,

Also does anyone know if the + - Buttons normally illuminate
I would appreciate any help please
Thank you,
From a Newbie

Did it ever work?

It's not a true manual and it shifts if you don't shift.

Ironically, I'm trying to disable mine. Let me know what you figure out.

Sounds like a loose connection or ground wire in the steering wheel. You might want to crack it open and check all connections but be careful not to trigger the airbag.

see this removal YouTuber:

All done thank you, its the group of ribbons on the right that goes into a round black thing, its all worn and loose,

I not think it will hold for long,
Maybe time to see if i can upgrade the tired steering wheel, keeping the Tip
Any ideas

THANK YOU
