Fault Lights Coming on

Boxster S Last couple of days the ABS and PSM dash lights have lit up. If I stop and restart they go out for a while.
Don't know where to start. Any thoughts ?

Cheers

John

John,
It needs to go in to a Porsche Independent mechanic or dealer to have the codes read.
Any stored fault codes will help you to decide where to look next.

Have you checked your brake fluid level?

I know this is an old thread but 2002 S started this last week. Identical to what you described. Did you get an answer??

Mine does that occasionally. I believe it is related to the brake light switch. If I turn the car off and back on it goes back to normal
