Diagnostic Socket

Improper intervention 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 devices to the diagnostic socket.

Unsecured devices or hanging cables in the driver’s footwell

Unsecured devices or hanging cables in the driver’s footwell can impair pedal movement or get between the pedals when braking or changing direction.

  • Do not place any devices or cables in the driver’s footwell.


The diagnostic socket is used to connect diagnostic devices 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 (total discharge).

  • Do not connect any devices to the diagnostic socket.


Ignition Lock, Steering Lock


Risk of damage due to extra weight.

If extra weight has been added to the inserted car key, such as a heavy bunch of keys and/or a key fob, the ignition lock may be damaged.

  • Do not attach any extra weight to the inserted car key.

The car key is inserted into the ignition lock at the left of the steering wheel.

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


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

The ignition lock has three key positions.

Information
The vehicle battery will run down if the car key is left inserted.

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

  • Please see the chapter “EMERGENCY OPERATION – UNLOCKING THE CAR KEY/ CONTROL UNIT” on page 159.
