Hi

The pads may need adjusting,,,,But the physics will tell you that when the pad is wet...there is reduced friction which can be perceived as a worn out pad....

Brake fluid level light on level ok ? porsche 911 996


Is the light limited to brake fluid level? Many times this is also an indicator of worn out pads or need to adjust emergency brake cable...Hope this helps.

Adjust emergency brake lever to get brake light to stay off


? If the brake light is on, check your break fluid level first & top it off. If not, check your break lights - one could be out. Last - it's likely your pads are worn down & need new breaks. Have it checked.

Once brake indicator light comes on, how soon should service be done?


I would get that taken care of soon, not more than 5k miles after the light comes on. If the pads wear all the way through to the rotors you won't have any brakes and you'll damage the brakes.

My ABS light showin my my dash board and it was scanned my mitsubishi. Presently the light is still showing and when I break, I hear some noise as if the break pad is pad. I currently have new beak pad...


Hi,

New brake pads require 'wearing in' and may make a scraping sound for the first 50km or so.

Re ABS

First, I suggest you remove the PCM "Fuse" (in the main junction box, under bonnet) for 10secs, then re-insert. If you cannot find fuse, then disconnect NEG battery cable for 10secs. This will reset your PCM.

Start engine and allow to idle for 15mins (this allows the PCM to re-learn settings).

Drive car a short distance to determine if ABS light comes back on. If ABS light does come back on, then have the PCM scanned for fault codes. This will identify which ABS component is causing the (warning light) problem.

If light remains off (and the pads are worn in), but you still have scraping noise, then something else is causing this problem and will require further investigation.


Cheers,

1 st gear ok 2nd gear loses power rpm goes high


Check engine light on?

Is it a manual or auto? Assuming its a manual, is there an ABS light on? If so or if you hace changed the brake pads recently or even had the tires off or rotated, there could be a problem in the brake pad sensor or abs wheel speed sensor.

Check with Porsche service (your closest dealer) for recalls or TSB (Technical Service Bulletins) related to your concern and check the cayman/boxster owners clubs for similar posts and resolutions.

Hope that helps.

Porshe boxster brake pad wear sensor


Hi

The pads may need adjusting...However the physics behind all this says that when the pads are wet...there is reduced Friction...and hence lower braking power...this may be perceived as a worn out pad when it is wet....Try apply the brakes to dry the pads when driving and the sign should go off...
