Brake fluid & PSM 'off' light

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have a 2004 2.7 986. Only had it a few months. Problem is with a couple of warning lights.

I washed it 4 days ago and it has sat in the garage since then. Drive it this morning and the brake fluid warning light comes on then the PSM off warning light comes on.

If I top up the fluid will this put out the PSM light?

Any help would be much appreciated. I have done a few serches but can't seem to find the answer.

Thanks

The issues may be related, start by looking at the brake fluid and see if it is low; if it is, fill to the correct level. If the fluid is not low, you may have a problem related to getting wet when you washed it, such as a loose or cracked harness connector. Another option would be to scan the car with either a PIWIS unit or the Durametric software to see what codes are involved.

I've noticed that when the brakes are worn, as mine were recently, the brake fluid level was near the low limit.

Thanks for the help. I have topped up the fluid and all is well !I am not sure where the level was previously but will now monitor. Hoping it was just due to being on bottom marker. Cheers.

      All,
       
      Since the Feds have determined (in their infinite wisdom) that blue brake fluid makes it too hard to ensure one doesn't put Washer Fluid in the Brake Reservoir or vice-versa, what is a good way to ensure brake fluid is fully replaced when it is the same color?  Can you go by volume of fluid pushed out of the caliper?  Is there a way to dye the gold fluid without messing up the boiling point?
       
      Thanks for the help; I have blue in the car now and one can of blue left so I have 2 changes worth, but my friends who I help regularly are stuck...
