I picked up my 992 six weeks ago and have encountered some issues/glitches, all of which seem to be technology related. Has anyone else seen this with their 992?

1. Door handles do not always pop out when touched while the key is in a pocket. It only works about 50% of the time.

2. Thumb/hand does not always lock the doors when the handle indent is touched. It only works about 50% of the time.

3. Fronk does not always open when waving or rubbing a hand over the hood badge and/or above the latch area. It only works about 50% of the time.

- These three issues occur with either key in my pocket.
- The dealer suggested checking the battery in the keys and checking the antenna system that receives the signal.

4. The passenger mirror rotates UP when in reverse. This may just be a manual adjustment to reposition the mirror glass.

5. Homelink - GPS location programmed in the driveway does not always work to pop up the Homelink on the screen when pulling into the driveway. It only works about 50% of the time.

6. The speed limit sign display on the instrument panel sometimes freezes and doesn’t update. I recently drove from a 60 mph zone to a 40 mph zone to a 30 mph zone and the display continued to show 60 mph. Even after stopping and exiting the car, when I started it again after about 5-10 minutes 60 mph was still displayed.

If your dealer is looking into this (which I assume), what progress have they made so far? Curious to know since its been a week this this post.

Someone I know with a 4S has the same door issue.

Thanks for your reply. I have mentioned these issues to the dealer and will probably wait another month or so before taking it in. I want a little more time to evaluate to see if there is a pattern of cause and effect.

I have noticed the same with the door handles/ locking and the mirrors, but didn’t know the fronk opened with a hand wave, and have not had success even programming the homelink.

For the Homelink, I had to call 1.800.PORSCHE and have them walk me through it. Once it is set up, it is linked to GPS positioning and the Homelink button pops up automatically on the screen when you approach your driveway. All you have to do is touch the screen and the garage door opens. (This also only works about 50% of the time). I have the Homelink set on the programmable key on the steering wheel so I can press that key also and the Homelink button pops up on the screen.

I don't really love technology...

I found the "sweet spot" to wave over and open the frunk but the doors still do not lock with a touch.

I have the same issues with my 992. I have had it back to the dealer 3x. They say my cell phone interferes with the signal. Than the factory rep came to my home to reprogram the system and he told me that Porsche had the door release programed to have a 30 minute delay for security reasons that he couldn't explain. I have he same homelink problem and they reprogrammed that function so most of the time it recognizes my driveway but the window prompts keep changing. I gave up and put my $ 5.00 door opener on the sun visor because getting out of the garage and having to change the window 3x is a pain.

I've had my 992 to 3 weeks now and I've noticed the door handle sensitivity issue as well as the Homelink performance as well.
