New 2020 Evora GT stopped paddle shifting after 900 miles. Paddle shifter will not engage manual mode.
Any help before a trip to the dealer?

Test to see if the paddles themselves are working. While in Park with your foot on the brake, hold the right paddle. This should put you in drive. Also, from any gear, you should be able to pull both paddles and it will put you in Neutral. If your car fails both of these tests, then your paddles aren’t being recognized and a trip to your dealer is your best bet.
When driving, is it both paddles that won’t work or is it just the up or down? Perhaps one has gotten dirty or has failed. Check if both are non functional to help narrow down where the issue is. I don’t have any solution for you because it’s either a system fail, a hardware/switch failure, or a plug has become disconnected. All of which will be covered by your warranty, at your dealer.

Thanks for the input. They are not responsive in any position.
