Porsche Diagnostic Codes: Read and Clear Trouble Codes
The Durametric Diagnostic software is capable of displaying and clearing fault codes on most Porsche control modules. Most Porsches made since 1990 have multiple computers built into different parts of the car that are capable of self-diagnosis. In other words, the car detects a problem and illuminates a general indicator light on the instrument panel to notify you.
Learning about the cause of the trouble typically results in relying on a Porsche dealer to read the information and report to you the corrective options. The Durametric tool allows you to easily see any trouble codes to better understand your Porsche’s repair and maintenance needs.
Below is a snapshot of the Durametric program showing the codes of a Porsche 911 engine. For each fault code triggered on the car’s computer, Durametric displays the code and description. Here you can also see the option to “Erase Fault Codes” – among other options, that allows you to clear out the code that triggers the indicator light.
