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.
There is a transponder (an electronic component) in the key grip, containing a stored code.
When the ignition is switched on, the ignition lock checks the code.
The immobilizer can be deactivated and the engine started only using an authorized ignition key.
Switching off the immobilizer
If the ignition is left on for more than 2 minutes without the engine being started, the immobilizer is switched on again.
