    Check Engine Light and Vehicle Diagnostics
    When a check engine light illuminates it’s sending a message that action needs to be taken. Modern Porsches are equipped with many sensors and can often let you know that things are starting to go wrong before damage occurs. The onboard vehicle diagnostic sensors in your Porsche form a complex network. Interpreting their output takes experience.
