Customer Question

I have a cayenne s 2008. I see a check engine light. It also has a message SERVICE NOW. I know I need an oil change. Is the check engine light related to the SERVICE NOW or is it entirely separate problem.
For this type of problem would you recommend I bring it to a Porsche Dealership or an outside shop specializing in Porsche would be ok.

Hi im kevin the check engine light will be unrelated to the service being due .the check engine light will illuminate if the control system picks up on a fault within the engine system .the car will need to be plugged into a diagnostic machine to extract fault code relating to the issue.this does not need to be done at dealer
