  1. Past hour
  2. I am not be sure of what you are describing as emergency lights Is what is not lighting up the row of round warning lights below the big three dials? Has any work been done on the car recently?
  3. Oof closer inspection and backside 😥😥😥 Cleaning what I can with isopropyl alcohol and hopefully I can restore some functionality otherwise I know its gonna need replacement anyways. 😥
  4. Today
  5. Hi, the battery died and along with it went the code for the radio. The serial number is 15000686 and the type is 4362, can you please send the code?. Thank you for your help.. Keviun
  6. Well, all the abs sensors looked good. So I decided to remove EVERY SINGLE FUSE in the car (Left dash, right dash, and trunk) and put them back in. Then scanned system, found a ton of codes, hit erase, and nothing but green checks! And its been almost 2 weeks and still good to go. Thanks for all the help! But this case is closed!! 🙂
  7. Took out seat and box under the seat, doesnt look good 😪 should I try isopropyl alcohol?
  8. $3000 is not unreasonable if he's replacing the AOS and RMS, and upgrading the IMSB on a Tiptronic.
  9. Start with the fuses in the fuse panel. Why did you have to jump start the car? Bad battery, low battery will cause all sorts of electrical problems.
  10. Old thread but bumping this up bc I am having similar issue. 05 Cayenne Turbo is making a tapping sound mainly on deceleration (when I let off throttle) at lower speeds. Sound seems to be coming from passenger side front wheel area, happens when driving straight ahead. Seems to be quieted by application of brakes or driving in lower height with air suspension. About 2 years ago I did the "Jimi fix" on the cardan shaft center support and that is still intact. Sounds like it could be drive shaft related but doesn't really sound like it's coming from center of truck. Not seeing any visual damage to driveshafts or CV shafts/joints at wheels. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
  11. Aftet I jumped the car, the heater a/c system, nor the headligths are working. Anyone has a clue of what could happened??? Thks
  12. Battery discharge on my 1999 Boxster. I would really love some assistance with retrieving the code! CDR-220 4462 X5023293
  13. When I unhook my battery it resets switch to allow the window to go up and down when door is opened and closed but only works a couple of time before it stops going up and down.
  14. Try 1457 Please consider a donation to support this site - thank you.
  15. Hi Loren, Need your help again, got a spare from another Ebayer: BE 4462 CDR 220 996.645.126.00 Serial number: 15088758 Many thanks!
  16. i've installed a new stereo but was wanting to use the 6x40 amp. i see the wires that come back in but was wanting to see if anyone new which colors are which speaker.
  17. FWIW, from the MY 2019 and on, the main fuse box for your accessory power in the Cayenne is under the plastic dead pedal. Middle column on the bottom is "Row D", particularly the bottom two vertical slots with identical 20A fuses (No. 15 & 16) control right and left headlight electronics for PDLS features that are only available with the ignition ON. You may piggy back off of them with an ATO sized add-a-fuse to gain 12V ACC power. There IS enough space for two adapters, but the grounding tail of the adapters may interfere with each other when installed side-by-side. Unfortunately, there is a plastic divider that will interfere if you flip-flop the adapters. Minor plastic shaving of the pigtail is necessary. Beware, the NEWW Cayenne uses a LiFePO4 (Lithium) battery that is sending 48V to onboard equipment. DO NOT splice into an existing power cable until you've taken a meter to it.
  18. 1999 boxster no emergency dash lights
  19. New member here. This is a great site with loads of useful information, so thank you! I recently bought my dream car, finally, a 2007 997.1 turbo with Tip with 27k. Long story short, I bought the car and had it serviced right before winter. However, after the service which included an oil change, code P0021 came up for the first time. I took it back to the dealer and they cleared the code and told me this happens at times after an oil change. I drove the car for a few more weeks until the weather changed and the CEL light never returned, until yesterday. Again, because of the weather, the car has been sitting for a few months and I just took the car out. It ran perfect all-day long. Then the very next morning, I take the car out and about 5 min into the drive the CEL light comes on with "Visit your local shop" or something to that affect. My OBD reader indicates Code: P0021 - camshaft position over-advanced bank 2. 1 - Should I clear the code and see if the code returns, or should I have someone look further into it? 2 - I was going to clear the code and see if it comes back like previously noted by the dealer but wanted to acquire some more experienced thoughts on this. Car seems to run, idle, and drive perfectly fine. Any thoughts or guidance on what to do next would be greatly appreciated! Sorry for the long post. Thanks in advance for you guidance!
  20. Yesterday
  21. Yes. Pull the pins down and the clips will open. Move them slightly out of the way and you can lift the seat bottom up. Careful, there are some wires attached to the seat bottom that need to be detached before lifting and moving the seat bottom forward and out. Best to get the seat in a position to do this, and move the steering wheel all the way in to make more room. It is also a good idea to disconnect the battery before doing this since the seat pad affects the airbag system and seat belt system. Take a picture of the wiring harness and connectors before disconnecting them.

  23. Both my horns were in-op, due to their stupid positioning. They are facing "UP" with is perfect for collecting and holding water. They just drown, both at the same time. I put in horns from a Lincoln Town Car this time.
  24. Last week
  25. Yes and a good tech will bring a vacuum with him/her to clean up any broken bits. It's just part of the job.
  26. Should be 900 grams (31.75 oz.). The system should also have 195 ml of ND 8 oil in it.
