Greetings...... “Hi, I’m Don (aka MOLurch) and I look forward to helping you!”

The "Check Engine Light" comes on when the Computer detects a problem with the Sensors of the vehicle.
There are "numerous" causes that will turn the Check Engine On
It may be something simple or a number of issues
The Vehicle needs to be Scanned for "Trouble Codes" to help locate the issue, prior to any Repair or Parts
A Porsche System Tester is connected to the vehicle via a 16-pin diagnostic socket.

The diagnostic socket is located inside the vehicle below the dashboard near to the driver (left-hand drive vehicles) or the passenger (right-hand drive vehicles).
Many Auto Parts Stores will Scan for FREE & give you the Trouble Codes & meanings to guide you in what needs to be Repaired or Replaced
