Porsche Panamera Coolant Level Warning

Porsche Panamera Coolant Level Warning

Do you have a Low Coolant Level Warning Light on your Porsche? A Coolant Light is not something that you should ignore and it is important to address these warnings right away to avoid and prevent further damage. A Low Coolant Level Warning Light indicates that the cooling system of your car has been compromised with either a part failure causing you to lose coolant, or it may indicate that your Coolant Level has become too low and should be topped off when necessary.

Why Does My Blinker Blink Fast?

Why Does My Blinker Blink Fast?

If the blinker on your car is suddenly blinking faster than normal, this could indicate that there is an issue with the turning indicators on your vehicle. Typically, if your blinker is blinking fast, this means that one of the blinkers on your car is out or not working at all. Another term for this can be called ‘hyper blink’ which is basically what happens when either your front or rear blinker lights have stopped working. The first thing you will notice is a change in sound coming from your blinkers. A normal blinker will have a sound associated with a light that will blink at a rate of about once every second; if your blinker is blinking faster than normal, your blinker will blink and make its blinking sound twice as fast as usual. Your turning signal will start to blink faster than normal when one of your indicator lights or bulbs have been damaged, broken, or gone out completely. This can also happen if one of the wires going to your blinkers has broken or been damag ... read more
