Your Porsche is a german engineered performance vehicle and contains a network of control modules that monitor and maintain the optimal performance of your vehicle. These modules are essentially independent computers that manage engine & emission controls, anti-lock brake systems, airbag systems, comfort controls, and digital displays on your vehicle. Each of these modules is interconnected to allow them to function in unison for optimal performance.
Your Porsche also utilizes a series of sensors that provide feedback to the various computers to allow for continual adjustments resulting in optimal performance. Periodically, these sensors and control modules – and sometimes the related wiring – can fail, resulting in decreased performance or (in a worse case) a car that won’t’ start. Mechanical systems can also fail and often a sensor will detect these failures and turning on a warning light. These computer-related failures often produce trouble codes to allow our technicians to know which system is malfunctioning and help them in diagnosing your vehicle.

Most of the systems in your Porsche are controlled by sensors that are monitored by the onboard computer system. The goal is to alert the driver of a malfunction or potential malfunction as early as possible, to avoid the possibility of a breakdown. In some cases, a failure of a component can occur without warning, however.
