Hi,

Just had same problem this morning. I had noticed that the satnav was malfunctioning (i.e. developed a mind of its own!!) a couple of days ago and then this morning PSM/ABS failure......marvellous!! Anyway, simply disconnected battery, waited 10-15 mins, reconnected battery and hey presto my boxster fired up. However the PSM failure message still showed, so took it for a spin around the block and the message disappeared and, touch wood, everything seems back to normal. I think it must have been a battery problem, so just to safe I am going to get a new battery and hopefully I can look forward to years of trouble free motoring.....one day with the roof down!!!! (Where has the sunshine gone!!!????)

The ABS/PSM warning light on my 2003 Boxster came on, stays on. Specialized Mechanic said it was the ABS Hydraulic control module, extremely expensive and not available in US. Car has only 55K mile. Is it...


Yes you can still drive it. When the ABS system fails, it reverts to the old system. Meaning that when and if you hit the brakes hard enough, the wheels could lock and skid. By releasing them they will roll again. We drove forever with out ABS and most of us are still alive.

I have a 2000 porsche carrera 2, which has PSM & ABS warning lights constantly on. I am unable to use the PSM switch, as it does not respond. My mechanic just replaced a speed sensor on the front...


If you have voltage from all of the speed sensors on the wheels, only then think about getting the ABS pump control repaired or replaced. It could be the reluctor.
I repair Volvo and Mercedes without issue so I think you could get the module repaired at a competent repair shop.
Took me 20 minutes to remove, repair and replace the module on the V70. Mercedes took a bit longer as the module was awkward to get to.

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.

PSM failure with Boxster


I had these problems on my 2005 911 when the battery died. Apparently when it goes IT GOES. I had no problem with the battery until this time and then suddenly it was dead.

I've heard since that this is common on Porsche 996 when the battery is dead and then is should also be the case with the 986 Boxter since these 2 share a lot of components.

I removed the old battery and left the car without a battery for at least 30 minutes (while doing some other maintainance). Put a new battery in and no problems after that. On most cars if you disconnect the battery for like 15 minutes the maintainance computer resets its self and all warninglights should dissapear unless there is a real fault, then the appropriate light should come back on!

Good luck.
Slick.
