Replying to my own post, I went to play around and I see there is a simple on and off for the Active Safe. I made sure mine is on. It is.I'm sorry to hear this. I just bought mine 2 days ago. I also have Active Safety and it makes me wonder whether there is an on off switch I should now about. I didn't understand what you meant about smoke affecting its ability to work. Where was the smoke from?
So I really want to know. Do we have to make sure something is on and are you sure your was on or is it automatically on? Can it be turned off?
Again...sorry for your loss. If you end up teaching the rest of us, you might save one of our lives. If it was on, maybe Porsche can look into it. They can study these things.
