Information
The PVTS can detect up to 7 driver cards per vehicle. Please contact your authorized Porsche dealer if you want to add, delete or replace a driver card.

Only one active driver card must be present in the vehicle. The second driver card is intended for a second driver or can be used as a spare card.


Driver card malfunction
In exceptional cases (e.g. interference from radio waves), the driver card may not be detected.

A warning message appears on the multi-function display in the instrument panel.

  • Press button A on the driver card to initiate driver detection.

For information on warning messages on the multifunction display:

  • Please see the chapter "OVERVIEW OF WARNING AND INFORMATION MESSAGES" on page 137.

Emergency deactivation of the driver card

  • If the PVTS cannot be deactivated using the driver card (e.g. if the driver card battery is flat or the driver card was lost), contact the control center and get the control center personnel to deactivate the system.

Transport
If the vehicle is transported with the ignition switched off (e.g. on a ferry), transport mode must be activated.

If the vehicle is not transported in transport mode, the system can trigger a false alarm, for which you will be billed (further information is available at www.porsche.com/connect).

Activating and deactivating transport mode

  • Please contact the control center before transporting the vehicle and when you have finished transporting the vehicle.

Maintenance
The PVTS must be set to Maintenance mode in the following situations:

  • During customer service (e.g. for regular servicing)
  • When the battery is disconnected.

If the vehicle is not serviced in Maintenance mode, the system can trigger a false alarm, for which you will be billed (further information is available at www.porsche.com/connect).

Activating and deactivating Maintenance mode

  • Please contact the control center before having your vehicle serviced and after your vehicle has been serviced.
  • When your vehicle is being serviced, please inform the relevant employee at the qualified specialist workshop or your authorized Porsche dealer that your vehicle is equipped with the Porsche Vehicle Tracking System (PVTS).
    In addition:
  • PVTS with driver card: Leave the driver card in the vehicle during servicing so that the PVTS is deactivated.

Information
Make sure that you get your driver cards back when your vehicle is returned to you following servicing.
