Default "PSM FAilure" PASM Failure" after battery install

I just put a new battery in my car after the other was drained from sitting for a week witht the key in the ignition.
I changed the battery and the car started right up, but now it says "PSM Failure" and "PASM Failure". The "Sport" button doesnt work either.
What does this mean?

My recollection is that this error will clear after some regular driving. About 20 miles or so. There are a few threads on some errors that get thrown when changing out a battery. Most folks say they clear themselves out.

It will clear in much less than 20 miles. Start the engine, perform a few steering motions to the left and right with the vehicle stationary, then drive in a straight line for a short distance until the warning lights go out. It should clear in a few hundred feet. Same thing happened to me after disconnecting the battery while hardwiring my V1.

Mine did the same thing and cleared itself quickly. Just changed the battery last weekend. I had to train the windows after the installing the new battery too.

In your case probably did not matter, as your battery seemed depleted (or maybe not) but if you had connected a battery charger (or even a 9V battery) before removing the old one, no memories would be lost.

Clearing the PSM errors and resetting the window limits are on page 263 and page 26 in the 997.2 owners manual...




Is this not mentioned in the 997.1 owner's manual?

Karl.
