The power windows not lowering when the Cabriolet top latch and/or door handle is operated or lowering unexpectedly while driving can be caused by a failing Cabriolet top or door handle micro switch. Diagnoses will be required to determine which switch is at fault and will require replacement.

If the vehicle cannot return to run position after start or if the interior fan is not getting power, it may be the electrical portion of the ignition switch has become erratic or has failed. The entire switch assembly should be replaced.

Porsche Recalls

Vehicle Oversteers And Loses Control

The vehicle may over-steer due to anti-roll bar connecting links moving out of position. Dealers will inspect and replace the front anti-roll bar links as needed free of charge to resolve the concern.

Brake Pedal Separates

The brake pedal pivot pin may become dislodged, resulting in the brake pedal separating from the pedal arm. Dealers will inspect the brake pedal assembly clip and install a replacement clip if one is missing free of charge to resolve the concern.

Potential Fuel Leak

The fuel injection system uses tubes called fuel rails to get the fuel to the fuel injectors. These fuel rails can leak. Any fuel leak always increases the risk of a fire. Dealers will replace the affected fuel rails to correct this concern.
