E-DIFF and Driving mode switch Failure


new to the forum.

I recently purchased a 2006 F430 from a dealer. It has powertrain coverage until March 2014. Drives beautiful. Has 15K miles approx.

I did two test drives with the dealer. No problems.

I drove the car home from the dealership. I drove it on automatic and literally drove it gingerly as this is my first one (didn't hit any bumps or anything and never went over 60mph if that).

Anyways, two warnings came up. "E-DIFF" and also the "Driving mode Switch Failure". What does this mean? Is it safe to drive it still? How much will this cost to fix and is it covered by the Power Train Warranty?

Hi and welcome to FerrariLife

Not sure this would be covered by the basic Power warranty but as you just bought your car, don't hesitate to contact your dealer and find an arrangement to get this resolved. I would not drive the car until you know exactly what's going on. Good luck!

If there are no symptoms of a malfunctioning differential,i would say it is an electronic problem.We experienced this 3-4 months before on a F430 in the race track...The verdict was that the ECUs had some problem communicating,but when we reset everything,the car was ok.No cost.Hope that you have the same problem....

When in doubt,flat out!
