Erratic display of "Drive off assistance failure" indicator

  • 2011
  • 911 Turbo S
Daley City, 

Hello All !  This query is for a 2011 Turbo S (997.2).  Firstly, i did try the "Find a question" button after typing in "Drive off assistance failure", but no entries corresponded to this. So here i am. It seems the "Drive off assistance failure" indicator comes on and off somewhat erratically. We started the car and drove off, after about 15 mins the indicator goes on, then disappears after another 15 mins or so of driving. Another time, we drive off and the indicator goes on, then we stop at a gas station to fill up, then upon starting the car the indicator is off, all the way until we get on to our destination. The owners manual says for us to bring it to a Porsche dealer. So can we use a Carsoft scanner to check this particular problem ourselves ? Or does this entail having a specialist check it out with a special diagnostic scanner of sorts ? All help is appreciated.
