This is a long shot but do you have TPMS and if so could that mean you have a valve cap missing Dont know

How it would know though is anyone's guess Question

That symbol doers not appear to be on the list: http://www.prestigeimports.net/porsche-dashboard-warning-lights/

Normally comes up if the VTS car fob is not in the car with the ignition is switched.

Thanks Scott. could be that as i had a call from Vodafone even though i had the fob on me. so maybe the vehicle also could not detect it.. as i said it is intermittent as it did not come on when i took it out for a spin today

My VTS fob eats batteries - typically 18-24 months. Mad

Even though the fob red light is on, battery strength can have deteriorated to a point whereby the car's system does not pick the fob up.

Yea ... your not wrong there young man Smile

The system tends to either work or not work so an intermitant fault like this makes me think its a low fob battery .

From memory its a CR 2032 battery.

That! I occasionally get it and wave the fob around under the steering column.

I've changed the battery once in 3 years. Seem to recall I got a text saying the battery was low and needed replacing. It was quite insistent!
