ABS Failure | PSM Off Take to Workshop

  • 2003

I was taking a drive the other day and I was romping on it, going 60 - 90mph, I had to brake hard and suddenly, my 2003 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Cabriolet started to throw two codes on the dash, "ABS Failure" and "PSM Off Go to your Workshop" and the ‘ABS’ and 'PSM' idiot lights came on.

I turned the car off and all of the lights went off. I drove it again and every time I would brake, the lights would come on again and, if I turned the engine off, the lights would go off, again. So, I took the car out and didn’t hit the brakes the entire way home and the lights didn’t come on.

I looked up the ABS and PSM Off codes on the Internet and there seem to be all sorts of reasons for these codes.

I used my diagnostic tool and there are no additional codes, however, I do not have a durametric diagnostic tool with the ABS unit. 

Any thoughts before I take my car into the shop?

Thank You!
