    Maybe your car is equipped with a special "Valet Parking Package"

    Dimitri, take your car IMMEDIATELY to your dealer, he should definetely check for faults with the PST2 or (hopefully he alread has it) the PiWiS and contact Porsche immediately.

    This isn't supposed to happen!

    Have you ever read the book "Christine"?

    Re: my first problem in my 997s

    See....This is why I never drink & drive...ah, anymore.

    I have to admit Dimitri's story just scared the "ba-jesbus" out of me. My 997S comes in three more weeks.

    What is PST2 and PiWiS?

    Porsche's diagnostic toolkit for querying and adjusting the onboard systems.

    Good thing you were at home and not out in the loud city where you may not have noticed it still running...

    Re: my first problem in my 997s

    You don't have to be scared, just take some precautions.
    I had the same problem with our company Mercedes CLK 320 a few years ago, I turned off the engine and took out the key (it actually pops out) and the engine was still running. Surprisingly, it went of by itself after two minutes or so. This is the car which started to fully accelerate by itself from standstill at a red stop light. Unfortunately there was a car in front of me and although I fully applied the brake immediately, I kicked him in the rear because the distance was too short. This happened shortly after I came to a full stop at the stop light in winter time and the ABS was slightly pulsating. Seems to have been a malfunction of the ABS/ESP/EGas of some kind. The bad part: Mercedes claimed that there was no problem with that car and they refused to pay for the damage. We sold that car and got the ML55 instead but I was really happy I got rid of it.
