Porsche Boxster 986 Dashboard Light Symbols

Dashboard warnings on your Porsche Boxster 986 depend on the Porsche Problem. It could be an indicator light for ABS, airbag, engine light or something else. There are many reasons why the dashboard shows warning lights and below is a list of the lights on the dashboard. You might need to buy a scanner online which will show Porsche trouble codes & reset the warning light for good!
The following symbols have been taken from a 2001 Porsche 911 996 Carrera 4. The best Porsche diagnostic kit on the market right now for the 911 996 is the Porsche Foxwell NT510 Diagnostic Kit. It will read & reset Porsche fault codes & Porsche trouble codes aswell as turn off dashboard lights such as the Porsche check engine light, Porsche airbag light or the Porsche ABS warning light.
