Never invite car theft!
An unlocked car with the key in the ignition lock invites car theft.
A steering wheel lock and a gong alarm are standard equipment in your Porsche.
The gong alarm will sound if you open the driver's door while the key is still in the ignition lock. It is your reminder to pull the key out of the ignition lock and to lock the doors.
Never leave your vehicle unattended with the key in the ignition lock, especially if children and/or pets are left unattended in the vehicle. They can operate power windows and other controls. If the engine is left running, they may accidentally engage the shift lever. Serious personal injury or death could result from loss of control of the vehicle.
Steering Column Lockup
The steering column will lock when you remove the key while you are driving or as the car is rolling to a stop. You will not be able to steer the car. Serious personal injury or death could result from loss of control of the vehicle.
To protect your vehicle and your possessions from theft, you should always proceed as follows when leaving your vehicle:
Two car keys are supplied with your Porsche.
These keys operate all the locks on your vehicle.
Replacement car keys can be obtained only from your authorized Porsche dealer, and this can sometimes be very time-consuming.
You should therefore always keep a spare key on your person.
Keep it in a safe place (e.g. wallet), but under no circumstances in or on the vehicle.
The key codes of new keys have to be "reported" to the car control unit by your authorized Porsche dealer.
A total of 6 car keys can be reported to the control unit.
Disabling key codes
If a key is lost, the key codes can be disabled by an authorized Porsche dealer.
All the remaining car keys are required for this purpose.
Disabling the code ensures that the car can be started only using authorized keys.
