I am the proud owner of an automatic 2014 Lotus Evora S. All of the sudden, when I use the paddles it’s hard to get the car back in park...and I am forced to play with the paddles first before attempting to put the car back in park. The new thing is that the car now starts in Drive mode. Crazy dangerous!

Is there a reset button to correct this?

Based on what you’re describing, it sounds like you have a sticky sensor to your right paddle. Fixing this comes down to replacing the sensor, which you can swap out if you’re handy and have a replacement sensor. Otherwise, I’m betting dealers are likely going to replace the entire paddle for ease of replacement. When one of these paddle sensors get sticky like this, it’s best to fix it before driving the car again, since it’s always trying to pull the right paddle.

Sorry that this had to be your first post, but welcome to the forum!

I didn’t find the sensor itself, so you might have to replace the entire paddle, which is item 19.
