Diagnostic Socket

Improper interventions in the vehicle electrical system
External equipment or devices (e.g. navigation units, head-up displays, etc.) connected to the diagnostic socket can impair the function of the vehicle systems.

  • Do not connect any equipment or devices to the diagnostic socket.

Loose equipment/ devices or hanging cables in the driver's footwell
Loose equipment/devices or hanging cables in the driver's footwell can obstruct clearance around the pedals or become caught between the pedals when braking or changing direction.

  • Do not place any equipment/devices or cables in the driver's footwell.



The diagnostic socket is for connecting diagnostic equipment in qualified specialist workshops.

Operating external equipment or devices (e.g. navigation units, head-up displays, etc.) from the diagnostic socket when the ignition is switched off will run down the battery. If the vehicle is parked for an extended period, the battery can discharge fully and be damaged (exhaustive discharge).

  • Do not connect any equipment or devices to the diagnostic socket.


Ignition Lock
The ignition key is inserted into the ignition lock to the right of the light switch at the left of the steering wheel.

On vehicles with Porsche Entry & Drive, you no longer have to insert the key into the ignition lock, but merely keep it with you. The ignition key is replaced by a control unit in the ignition lock, which always remains in the ignition lock, unless the vehicle is being towed.

The ignition lock has three key positions.

Key positions
0 - Initial position
1 - Ignition on
2 - Start engine

Information
The vehicle battery discharges if the ignition key is left inserted.

If the vehicle battery is dead, the key can only be removed from the ignition lock if the emergency operation is performed:

  • Please see the chapter "EMERGENCY OPERATION – UNLOCKING THE IGNITION KEY/ CONTROL UNIT" on page 24.
