1993 968 Tiptronic shifting to 4th gear

Transmission

Vehicle Information: Model(924/944/968): 968; Year: 1993; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 124000;

I have a a 1993 968 with Tiptronic transmission. The transmission service was performed about 7k miles ago. I drove the car in NC during a heavy rain storm. The next day I took it to the carwash to clean it up. Upon leaving the car wash, the car would no longer shift into 4th. I tried it in manual mode and in the automatic mode. It would show 4th on the dash indicator, but it would not actually engage in 4th. It was almost like it was slipping in and out of 4th. Have you heard of anything like this before? I had Sun Motor Cars take a look to determine that is was nothing electrical. They are unsure without taking the transmission apart and looking at it. Just wanted some ideas before I drop $700 just for exploration of the tranny.
