I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question

Ok, first, I need to know the model of your Porsche - Cayenne, 911, etc.

And I need to know the exact engine size and if it is turbo or non-turbo

There are over 500 fault codes that can trip those warning lights, so I do need to know the stored fault codes as well. If you have not had the computer scanned for fault codes, this is the first step and once you have those and post them I can tell you how to diagnose and repair
