    PASM Failure!

    You just never know. Cruising down the DC beltway (I495) heading for the gym on saturday morning, top down, Jimmy Buffett playing out of the CD player when I heard a loud BEEP. Looking down saw the display read PASM Failure. A bit confused since it was off (normal mode) at the time. The shocks began to go hard like Sport setting (no snide remarks boys!) although fuel mapping remained unchanged. Stayed that way for around 15 miles until destination with numerous attempts to play with the buttons which remained stubbornly unresponsive.

    It wasn't until I recycled the ignition that it reset itself. No repeat... so far anyway.

    Anyone else having this problem????

    '05 cs S cab.

    Re: PASM Failure!

    I had exactly the same problem with my C4S. The fault happened intermittently but became more frequent.

    Porsche replaced the PASM control unit and it has been fine ever since.

    Re: PASM Failure!

    Exactly same problem about 18 months ago. Dealer "recalibrated" the system, and it's been fine ever since.

    Welcome aboard
    You may have a look into this PASM failure related thread on the Boxster Board

    Re: PASM Failure!

    Contact your dealer, I'm sure they will fix it right up for you.

    Re: PASM Failure!

    There are reported faults on both the Cayman board (TV Man) and the Boxster board. There may be some link to the PSM button - hitting the PSM button might bring the PASM back to normality - its not right, but at least it might save the bone jarring ride next time it happens

    Re: PASM Failure!

    Thanks for the help! I haven't had a repeat yet but to be on the safe side, I plan to take it back to the dealer. The front suspension has a tendency to squeak while going over speed bumps and the like. Don't know if there is a relationship there.

    Re: PASM Failure!

    It's related to playing Jimmy Buffett on the Beltway....
