Tiptronic/Manual Mode Will Not Engage

Hey all,
My car shifts perfectly fine in Drive. However, when I shift into manual (tiptronic) mode, I don't even get the gear number appearing on my dashboard. Pushing the gear selector also does not change gears. Any ideas? Thanks!

What have you been playing with? Sounds like there's a config on the car which makes it think there is no tiptronic. Replace any modules recently?

Recently I changed out a switch on the shifter, as intermittently could not tapshift.
There are two (actually 3), switches in the top of the shifter, push to the side actuates a switch that 'tells' the car it is in tap shift, then the upshift downshift switches front and back.
I'd have to guess that first switch isn't telling the car it's tapshifft time.
I didn't want to replace the whole shifter, just the switch. I purchased a whole shifter assm eBay, then practiced on that to figure how take apart just what I needed and replace it. I had to pull the console, but it wasn't that bad.
Again, this is just my guess on your issue.

I have not played with much of anything. Just bought the car a few weeks ago.

Any idea where I can purchase the switches? Can they be replaced from the interior or does the trans need to be dropped?
