What does the Porsche ABS/PSM light mean?
Your Porsche ABS light can indicate a problem with the wheel speed sensors or if your Anti-Lock Brake System module malfunctions. If the ABS or PSM warning lights are on all of the time, drive carefully, as your vehicle can skid and take longer to stop when you brake. It is often a sign that the problem needs diagnostics.
How will I know if my ABS and brakes need servicing?
When things go wrong with your vehicle, you tend to notice small changes. If your brakes or ABS need servicing, you might notice the ABS light is constantly lit. Other signs include an unresponsive brake pedal, brakes locking up when you stop, or a brake pedal needing more effort to push to get a response. You may hear excessive squeaking or grinding noises when you hit the brakes, which could be a sign that the discs and pads are worn.
How often should I get my brakes serviced?
Our Porsche experts recommend that you have your brakes serviced at least once a year. This will help to prolong the life of your brake pads, rotors, and your vehicle to keep you moving. If you have any questions about how often you should get your Porsche brakes serviced, contact us for free advice.
Can I still drive without a functional ABS?
You can still drive if your ABS isn’t functioning properly, as your standard brake system will still work. However, your car will take longer to come to a stop and may skid when braking. You should drive with care, especially if driving conditions are poor, and get your Porsche booked in for ABS systems and sensors servicing as soon as possible.
Will ABS affect my steering?
Your Anti-Lock Brake System isn’t just used for braking. It can also affect your steering, which is the primary safety function of ABS during emergencies. The ABS is designed to help you maintain control of your vehicle when braking in emergency situations, so you may find that your steering is affected when your ABS goes.
