Have a new 2020 570s spider, about 750 miles. Lately a transmission fault error has been popping up, 5th time so far. The fault doesn't appear to do anything other than shut you out of manual mode and disables the paddle shifters. Sport and track work fine, but automatic shift only. It pops up when driving in automatic or manual mode. Warmed up or cold. 4 out of the 5 times the error popped up immediately after making a sharp 90 degree turn and goes away after being parked even for a short time. Any idea what it could be or how to resolve without taking it to the dealer? Loose connection to check, something needs recalibrated, etc? It's sporadic and all attempts to reproduce it on purpose have failed, as always.

Take it in and ensure you have them check the transmission level. These car are often under filled which causes problems. Given it is in a turn it could be losing fluid at a sensor and going into safe mode.

It sounds like some sort of loss of pressure. Have you noticed any leaks or anything damp underneath the car?
