All consumer electronics is made in China now just like the computer you're looking at right now.
Unless you have a custom made Sagar high end gaming computer from Sager & Clevo Custom Built Gaming Laptops & Notebooks or similer store... but even then the components inside are all made in China. All the mainstream consumer laptop computers are made in the same factory in China... except for Lenovo. They are built in a different factory and they are usually cutting edge as far as consumer laptops. MSI is close.
Thats not a bad thing because these days China has the most advanced technology there is for building consumer electronics and low cost labor doing the actual assembly work. Mostly women because they have smaller hands that can reach into small places with better dexterity than most guys.


Anyway, take a look at the multipin plug connection to the speed relay under the left seat. That's a common place for problems like that and you'll find the infamous white wire from the overboost sensor terminates there.
Also the inside of the yellow relay if your car has one. It snaps apart so you can see and clean the two relay contacts inside it.
And check it's plug connection on the engine compartment relay panel and the relay plugs on the front relay panel.
The male pins on Porsche relays have a split in them and spreading them a little with a small flat blade screwdriver will make them fit snugger and make a better connection.
Some dielectric grease on any spade terminal or plug connection in the entire car will help keep corrosion from spoiling them.
