Customer Question
Power steering fault. Mechanic's...

Power steering fault.

Mechanic's Assistant: When was the fluid last checked? Have you heard any whining noises while turning the wheel?

It’s an electronic issue

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Porsche?

2013. 911 2S

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 911 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I think it’s a low battery issue. Some other faults were fixed today by charging the battery. This one still persists

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I think that’s it

I heard that if I turn the wheel lock to lock that it might clear the fault.
Any truth to this?
