Dash light question


Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I have a MY00 and I have been drinving it around a bit in the rain. Once and awhile I get a little heavey on the loud pedal and the rear end gets a little loose! ( fun fun!! :D )

But a yellow triangle light comes on, on my dash. Now I know that it is referring to my TC BUT>>>>

in the past when that happened the TC light(orange light) would pop on, now it seems the yellow light comes on.

What gives and what should happen? Or is that what should happen?

Sorry for so many dumb questions but I am new to Porsche's that have TC.

I looked in the owners manual and online and nothing gives me a straight answer. Any help would be great,

Thank again

Maybe light is just telling you that you are just a little too heavy on the loud pedal. Sounds like you got the TC to kick in and the light is telling you so. BTW where is the loud pedal? I don't think I have found this in my car.

My '98 996 has TC (not PSM, which is different) and the yellow triangle lights up when TC kicks in. It also comes on when TC is turned off, as a wheel starts to spin. The round TC OFF light only comes on when TC is deactivated by the rocker switch, or if there is a fault in the system.
