Error code 5410 drive off assist fault


Recommended Posts

Hi guys. New to this so hope I'm in the right place..  had drive off assist fault come up on the dash. Took it to a garge near myself who plugged it in and it told them nothing apart from what was on the dash. Any ideas what needs to be changed or should I just take it Porsche. Thanks for your time.

Hi Saddy! 


This is a fault with your hill-hold function as it's often called.  Basically when the car is on an incline, the system will hold the car until you've selected a gear and moved off, or for a max of 8 seconds (or something like that).  The failure won't cause you normal driving issues, but the warning will keep beeping at you.  Theres a module on the gearbox that probably needs replacing, not too expensive.  I'd get yourself along to an independent Porsche specialist to have it checked.

Now I know I have ‘Hill assist’ ??


Had wondered as the car seems to ‘hold itself’ on the incline out of the station car park. 


Maybe I should read the owners manual sometime....


Hope you you get the snag with yours sorted Saddy.

The brake switch is extremely inexpensive and easy to change.  It shouldn't be more than half an hour of labour + cost of the switch.
