    Hello,
    Today i went at my trusted technician and we made a diagnosis on my 2011 California, i've got the code 270A0501... someone knows what could be?

    A gearbox issue today (sometimes shifting it misses to engage the gear then a second later it engages) also turned on the light of the engine and limited it to 3500RPMs, when we made the diagnosis in the engine module, the only error showed says "Check Clutch Status" and in the clutch the error is 270A0501, do you think it could be the Clutch Speed Sensor?

    Thank you so much
    Frank

    Hi Frank...Sorry to hear this. I do not recognize those codes. If you go to Google and search the following...

    site:ferrarichat.com MDEL california speed sensor

    you will find several threads by user @MDEL, which detail DCT failure cases from about 3 or 4 years ago.
    Good luck w/ your Cali...T

    Thank you!

    It seems P0501 as error, Clutch Speed Sensor.

    What do you guys think?

    I fear you have the dreaded DCT sensor issue. How many miles on your Cali?

    Has it been sitting for a while?
    I would consider letting a Ferrari shop run through the clutch calibration process before looking into opening things up.
