Porsche Codes 29 and 4460


Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me how to diagnose these codes? I used my Durametric and got the following:

4460 - pressure sensor ABS/PSM

29 - AC outs/recirc. air fl. MOT fault

 

Some history: I got a ABS/PSM warning indicator on dash. I then replaced the brake sensor light. I removed the piece of duct under the dash, replaced the brake light sensor and the ABS/PSM warning light went away. I cleared all fault codes after the job, and I found these codes again.

 

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

A malfunction of the stop light switch can cause this fault. The stop light switch must have switched before a brake pressure is recognized. When the brake pedal is actuated, the stop light switch and the brake lights are triggered.

That is the most common cause - I would start there.

It can still cause a fault code if the switch is not properly adjusted (covered elsewhere here).
