  2. Yes this happened to me. Assuming that your nozzle isn't clogged, it may be that the line to the nozzle has become disconnected. That's what happened to me. Look at this link. It gives you the info that you need. https://www.pelicanparts.com/techarticles/Porsche-Cayenne/77-ELEC-Third_Brake_Light_Replacement/77-ELEC-Third_Brake_Light_Replacement.htm
  3. Yesterday
  4. Thanks, do you use bagoo manyfacturer in advanced settings? Also the sound doesn t work with my phone and gps when the radio is playing, any ideas what’s the issue?
  5. Sloop, What did they do for $230 as far as "service"? Just curious. The list price for the Porsche fluid is around $50 or so (widely available for $40-45), and it takes about 10 minutes tops to change it. They may have replaced the fill and drain plugs - which would add about $30 in parts to the bill. Seems the charge is excessive - but I guess getting out of a Porsche service department for less than $300 has to be considered a bargain.. (I did get out for less than $200 a week or so ago when I had my brake fluid flushed. That did seem an OK charge since it took 2 techs to do it - and it took them about 45 minutes..)
  6. I'd be very interested if you can install the modified breather tube. As far as I can see - the breather is on the very top of the transfer case, and only really accessible with the case removed. And the piping for the vent going up into the engine compartment - it also appears to need the transfer case removed to install. Let us know if changing the fluid helps the performance issue.
  7. It's possible the transfer drive motor has crapped out - but surprising - it's not a common failure on the 958 series. More common is the entire transfer case - that will give the symptoms you describe as "hesitant and jerky". One test for the motor is to unplug it (it will give a warning message) and try driving a short distance. If unplugging it clears up the bad behavior - then chances are that the transfer case is on it's way out. I'm surprised you could find a 4 year old turbo with no miles on it. Is there a back story to this? One thing worth checking when oddball electrical problems start occurring - is the condition of the battery. That's particularly suspect if the car sat unused for 4 years - and still has the original battery in it. You can opt to display a voltmeter function on the multi-instrument-display in the dashboard - be worth seeing what the engine off voltage is. Ideally 12.7V engine off.. and it shouldn't drop below 10V when the engine is cranking. The other possibility is corroded wiring in the front footwells. ALL Cayennes are prone to having drains plug up due to debris that falls on the vehicle and then is washed down into the drains. There are several cowl drains that are accessible by pulling back the inner fender liners. It is not at all uncommon for these to become plugged up, causing flooding inside the vehicle - under the carpeting. The fix is to clean them out - and most people remove the rubber drain that sits in them, allowing debris to pass through in the future. Then once they're cleaned out - the carpeting has to be pulled up, and the corroded connections found and fixed. Not a trivial job. There are threads on the drain issue on rennlist.com - and there may be some here. I know there are threads on repairing the wiring on rennlist. Good luck!
  8. Hi this is my first post. i have a 2013 Cayenne Turbo 2013 which I bought 9 months ago with zero km. all has been fine up to last week when I got a yellow all wheel drive system fault on the dash the car seemed hesitant and jerky since I got it but I just put that down to how it was. everything is working in the car except it has no power. I do have another strange tyre pressure warning that won’t go away even after I fill all 4 tyres. The lane change warning lights on the wing mirrors come on when there is nothing there also. There are bo noises or grinding or nothing. i had it diagnosed using durametric but there are no error codes. ive read it could be the transfer gear motor? any advice would be appreciated. i had it remapped and the secondary cars removed and fitted back panel filters. thanks
  9. Got the wheel Fixed. Apparently the wheel imbalance was not very severe and got corrected quickly Sadly the transfer case "kick" Issue remains Also got ATF (approx. $57 for 0.85 Ltr) from Porsche will get it changed tomorrow or day after. Anyone knows DIY transfer case Breather tube change. I got it from Porsche but need help to put it on transfer case post fluid change. Keeping my fingers crossed. Else going for replacement and tank my bank account
  10. Can someone please tell me how to get the pin/rod out of the clutch booster spring assembly for removal on my 2003 996? The clip came off easy and I was able to push the pin to the left (towards drivers side tire) but it hits metal framing parts before it is clear to push all the way out. Am I supposed to then push "up" out of the clutch pedal assembly? I am concerned that I will snap off that part of the clutch pedal. Please help..spent 2 hours yesterday on it and am still light headed from being upside down! BTW... I have owned/worked on several 911's over the past 20+ years - this is an interesting one.
  11. P1507 Throttle code again

    Thanks, I just did clean up the contact of the TB again after home, but can you please tell me more detail of the wiring harnesses location? But before I did reset throttle, clean up connectors, the throttle % seems to be went back to normal after codes clean and a few car restart...And u never know how soon would it happens again.
  12. P1507 Throttle code again

    The first thing I would do is unplug the engine wiring harnesses on the right side of the engine bay and spray them with electrical contact cleaner, then plug and unplug them a couple of times to clean up the contacts. Do the same with each and every electrical connection on the TB. With those types of codes they all seem to point to some problem with the TB and control valves on the TB, and the DME is not receiving the correct readings from the TB, MAF sensor and other sensors.
  13. P1507 Throttle code again

    So I drove it for couple weeks and nothing happened until this afternoon, rough idle I can make it start in few try, at least I can drive it home and these codes come out.
  14. The fluid line runs along the right-hand side in the roof covering to the rear, then to the middle, in line with the nozzle. The most rear part of the roof covering must be removed to fix the problem, the fluid line jumps off from the connector to the nozzle, usually due to excessive pressure caused by partial or complete blockage of the nozzle. Beware of possible water damage to the electronics inside the lower rear space.
  15. I have a 2005 Cayenne S when I try to use the rear washer I get washer fluid leaking down the passenger side kick panel and nothing out of the rear washer nozzle. I assume the washer fluid line must run up the passenger side A pillar along the roof to the rear washer nozzle. I can not find a schematic showing the routing of this fluid line. Has any one else had this issue? Thank you
  16. Will be getting the wheel fixed this week. No more driving GTS for now until it gets fixed. Will update soon.
  17. I would agree with Loren on using the latest Porsche fluid. It has recently dropped in price in the US - down to about $45 / 850cc - which is one oil change. The alternatives aren't a lot cheaper. The issue that Ashish may have experienced might have been caused by the difference in rolling diameter when the tire was under-inflated. The smaller diameter would cause that wheel to turn more revolutions per mile than the other wheels on the car. The transfer case only balances out front to back torque balance - but if one tire is badly underinflated - it's possible it caused extra stress on the case clutch. As Loren suggested - fix the tire/wheel issue - then change the oil and see what the results are. Let us know how it works out for you.
  18. Last week
  19. I took my 2012 in to Porsche in Tyson's Corner Virginia and was surprised to find that the modification to the transfer case had already been done. A transfer case service was completed for $230.00 and no problems since.
  20. Recently found myself heading down the same road, replacing 986 2-way heated seats with 997 2-way heated seats. Was wondering if anyone found a way to wire the heating element from the 986 car harness into the 997 seat harness?
  21. I would get any wheel and tire issues fixed first. Check the alignment and correct if needed. Then see if you still have slip issues. A bad tire/wheel combination can cause slip or even perceived slip because the 4 wheel drive is trying to correct for wheel/tire problems. After correcting any wheel tire issues then change the transfer case oil - and I highly recommend Porsche specified oil only. Too many bad stories about alternate oils in both the transmission and transfer case.
  22. Cayenne GTS 2013. 55k KM (approx. 34k miles). I am in middle east (Climate : Temp. 57 F to 108 F. for 7 months it remains between 97 F to 108 F) Brief History of Vehicle Condition before Issue: Bought preowned (No Warranty ...sob sob sob...) 21 inch wheels with Michelin tyres. Front Tyres were Old 2-3 yrs i guess. Rear tyres were couple of months old. Got 111 point check done by one and only Porsche dealer in Doha, Qatar. No major issue other than usual break pads, rotors, batter life etc. Regular service as per requirement done by previous owner. Log book stamped by dealer for each service. While merging on to highway lane i hit something (Stone, Lane marker not sure what). The tyre (Front Driver side) deflated immediately. I may have been doing 25-35 MPH. Used the spare wheel to reach home which was about 4 miles drive. Got front tyres changed. During wheel balancing I was told that the Front Driver side wheel was bent and could not be balanced with stick on weights. for some reason the mounted that wheel to the front passenger side. (Still looking for a shop who could fix bent alloys) Fast forward 500 to 600 Mile I again hit something on the same wheel (which was now on front passenger side with new tyre). It deflated to 10-15 psi. I inflated it to correct PSI the following day. (In between may have driven it with low pressure for about 50 miles ) After about 200 to 300 miles I started noticing Slip when my GTS shifts from 2nd-3rd gear (In auto). It been 7-8 days since i am observing this. I started to read a lot of forums to try and identify the what was happening. It was lovely car to drive what could be wrong. I went through multiple forums and Youtube videos for last 7-8 days. Highly stressed to find Transfer case cost 3000-4000 USD plus labor which could be a ton. After reading Renntech and great inputs by Mr. Don Eilenberger My guess is, post the 1st wheel hit incident the Transfer case is trying to compensate for uneven tyre grip due to unbalanced front wheel (Front Passenger side). Which may have led to Transfer case clutch being worn. 1. The slip is very evident when the engine and transmission etc is worm. 1st few mile in the morning i have not noticed it. 2. The slip feels like i am going over break in the road surface (Similar to when one drives over joint/gaps on a fly over). 3. Happens between about 1200 to 1500 rpm. The Taco fluctuates during the slip. 4. The issue is not observed once the gear changes to 4th. My To do: 1. Go to porsche dealer to get a solution and an estimate. Then go to another shop as I am sure after going through so many forums and videos that the dealer's solution will be "Recommendation to replace the Transfer case" 2. Get the wheel fixed asap. (I found a shop which fixes bent alloys) 3. Change Transfer case oil 4. Drive for a few days and report back to forum. Questions: 1. Which is the best Lubricant for this. Someone mentioned Ravenol (Not sure I can find it in Doha) 2. Some one mentioned a 5$ additive to prevent slippage in Transfer case clutch. Please recommend any solutions which would help avoid 4k Pit
  23. Sorry, I dont know if I replied correctly on previous message, in the worst, you'll get another reply. Here is my vin number WP1AA2A23BLA05481 and I got from dealer parts number 95535140151 and 251 for rotor 350mm and pads 95835193930. I just want to know what is the biggest rotor part number I can fit without replacing caliper. Here is what I baught for front and rear wheels. See pics. Thanks again for your help

  26. Lost Radio Code - post your request here

    Hello Everyone. We have a 911 that came with a different factory radio than the originally installed on the vehicle. The Radio code card obviously hd the wrong code as it pertains to the original radio. Would appreciate if I could get the code that belongs to this radio. Porsche CDR-220 type 4462 serial # 15085219 Thanks a million
  27. looks like a light kill switch. You must have a 955. Appears not to be available on the 957 https://rennlist.com/forums/porsche-cayenne-forum/941931-turning-off-interior-lights-2.html
