Battery

If the battery voltage drops abruptly, a warning message will be displayed by the on-board computer.

If the warning is displayed by the on-board computer while the engine is running or while driving:

  • Stop the car in a safe place and stop the engine.

Possible causes
– Defect in the battery charging system.
– Broken drive belt.



Risk of engine damage with resultant loss of control and accident, leading to serious personal injury or death.

A broken drive belt means there is no power assistance to the steering (more effort is required to steer) and coolant pump function will stop.

  • Do not continue driving.
  • Have the fault remedied at the nearest authorized Porsche dealer.
