    Dreaded System Fault Return to Workshop

    I got in my 2005 Cab, started it up and to my dismay the dreaded "System Fault Visit Workshop" showed up. I called the Service department (150 miles from home) and the service mgr said it was nothing to worry about and the next time I was in the area to stop in and they would check it out. The car runs fine and I don't think its a serious problem. I do recall that some 2005's had a problem with the front hood latch which would trigger the "System Fault". I did a search but could not find any techincal data which I could relay to the Service Mgr. If you have had this problem any info would be appreciated!! Many thanks in advance

    Sorry to hear that, John. Someone correct me if i'm wrong but I think that it only affected 2005 models and that the Porsche brain trust implemented a permanent solution/service bulliten a year or so ago(?).

    Some good info here:

    Same thing just happened to me for the second time in less than a month! I'm pretty steamed about the whole thing . I will be taking it into service bright and early tomorrow. Best of luck to you John.

    John, I'm sorry to hear about your "System Fault Error". I have a 2006 C2 and had the same message when I picked up my brand new car from the dealer. In my case, it was a latch fault within the front trunk child safety release. It did not affect locking the trunk, the car performance or engine in any way what so ever. Just trying to comfort you with this annoyance. Unfortunately for me, it took 2 trips to resolve.

    i got one a few weeks ago, disconnected the battery for 15 min put it back together started it back up and it was fixed
