  2. You have to scroll down the page in the link provided to find the mileage, 151K. VIN is WP0AA2903S621956. I should probably reorganize the page into more of an ad vs. it's blog format.
  3. Thanks for your input. What did you find wrong with the right pump? Did you fit a new one after? After changing the right side after also the left I can hear the right side is noisy, a rumble I hear. May need to get back in the tank and see if something isn't correct. My old pumps were quiet.
  4. I didnt see the mileage on it...could you also provide vin?
  5. Today
  6. Is this still available?
  7. Thanks guys. I replaced the battery a few months back and alternator last year. The batt was at least the spec of the original one and possibly higher. I will get the wiring tested but it does point towards the pump. Do do you know if they can be refurbished?
  8. I agree with JFP. Check the age of your battery - if over 4 years then replace it. Check the alternator output at the battery with the engine running - should be 13 volts or above. Also, your tech's diagnostic software results do not agree with Porsche's.
  9. Before doing that, I would load test the battery and alternator on the car, and check the voltage drop across the primary battery cables. These cars are prone to throw ABS and PSM faults when the battery and/or alternator act up, or when the resistance in the cables gets too high, and testing is much cheaper than jumping for some very expensive and possibly unneeded parts.
  10. Hi All, My 2002 ROW 996 Turbo has the ABS and PSM warning. My specialist has advised I have fault codes 4266 and 0266. He has recommended I replace both the precharge pump and ABS pump at huge expense. He couldn't diagnose which of the two pumps, so I'm not very confident in him! Any ideas what's causing the fault? I have no leaks and other than the warning, the car drives fine but I've driven it gently to avoid using ABS or PSM. this is the message he gets from his diagnostic software: Return pump fault Diagnostic Conditions - Return pump voltage and motor relay voltage actual values are evaluated and display implausible values. - Open circuit in circuit to control module terminal 1. Possible causes of fault - return pump motor locked up/runs too easily - Wire/plug connection faulty - PSM hydraulic unit faulty Thanks Matt
  11. I have a 2001 Boxster S that is a flood car that I rebuilt (totally submerged) and I have one outstanding issue that still needs attention. The micro switch in the left convertible top gearbox is not working 100%. It will let the top down, but on occasion it will not let the top back up. (I have to reverse jump the motor to get it closed) The flooded unit was scrapped in place of a unit out of a parts car and although it worked initially, it is now a bit stubborn. This is not the typical micro switch in the latch and is also not the B-pillar or switch on the motor for earlier cars. This switch is built into the left gearbox assembly behind the left (drivers side) B pillar. (see picture borrowed from another post) I notice that the gearbox is available with a true PN from the dealer, but I can find anyone who sells just the three way micro switch and I don't see anyone who has repaired one. This is a bit of a PITA to change, so ideally, I would like to install a new part once and not a used one again. Any help on this guys? Thank you. David Lee in Houston, TX
  12. Purge valve unplugged didn't have any effect. It threw a code p0444 as expected.
  13. Yesterday
  14. thats so weird. do your front jet washers work? i had my mate put a diagnostic computer on the cayenne. no listing for the pcm module so i dont know if the pcm is being picked up by the can network , also tried accessing the wiper module no communication with module. i can access the other module. im going to replace the battery next week if that dont working im have to take it to dealer
  15. Edit - post on hold, I might have found something....
  16. I wanted to chime in and echo the similar results. I have a tune as well, and all new Denso IK20 plugs, which helped the low RPM stutter from 1-2K rpm. All new vacuum lines to the DV's. Had surging under full throttle and the idle dip as well, and a rumbling rough idle when warming up. Pulled the right fuel pump fuse and ran on the left and all symptoms were gone. Almost no idle dip, no surging, and almost no perceivable( very slight) stutter down low.

  18. Hi I have a replacement regulator cable and need to know how it connects in the inside of the door without removing the door frame I took the old one out some months back
  19. I put new plugs in today.. still running rich. I will get pictures in morning. If I pull the crankcase breather hose off and let it drain for a few minutes there is a puddle the size of a quarter. I'm assuming this oil getting by is fouling my plugs. What else could be causing oil to appear in this hose ? Or is the only option a failing AOS diaphragm and cap
  20. Again some pictures would be great! Have you tried new plugs and run for some km then plug and check to gauge the extent of the problem and how the start up white smoke is affected? The dirty oily parts around connectors is bad or old oring on the fittings just leaking a bit of vacuum in. How much oil are we talking about in these pipes, pictures pls
  21. Hi! Did you ever fix this? I seem to be having the same issue. Other lights on the rear working, but not getting voltage at the terminals of the license plate frame bulbs...
  22. Compression tests done...All in good range.170 153. Still have a lot of oil in crankcase breather hose. Inspected diaphragm in AOS and there are no cracks ,splits or holes...Cleaned it all up. Checked for vacuum leaks...None noticed , Even sprayed with CRC What can cause this oil in breather hose.. I noticed it's dirty around AOS and also where hoses go into to valve covers on each side . Engine is running rich and some smoke for few minutes after start up. Smoke is white and not coolant smell.. smells of fuel and just a strong stinks exhaust. Plugs were pretty black and seem to be carbon as they were dry but had an oil smell... I am so darn confused her now... What is the air flow direction between the AOS and and throttle body ( this is where the crankcase breather hose with the oil in it is..) Any help would be appreciated.
  23. On a side note, can you go to v2.24 without the newer maps from 1.4 as is? Just looking for bug fixes, could care less about new maps.
  24. I have a new problem with the 2006 Cayenne Turbo 4.5v8 the car lose a lot of power and the rpm is going up and down. I read it out and got follow codes 9 Faults Found: 17503 - Intake Manifold Tuning Valve Position Sensor (G336) P1095 - 008 - Short to Plus - Intermittent - MIL ON 17503 - Intake Manifold Tuning Valve Position Sensor (G336) P1095 - 008 - Short to Plus - Intermittent - MIL ON 18619 - Bank 1; System too Lean at Idle P2187 - 001 - 18619 - Bank 1; System too Lean at Idle P2187 - 004 - - MIL ON 18713 - SAE - Air Leak between MAF and Throttle Body P2281 - 001 - 18621 - Bank 2; System too Lean at Idle P2189 - 001 - 18621 - Bank 2; System too Lean at Idle P2189 - 004 - - MIL ON 16886 - Vehicle Speed Sensor P0502 - 002 - Signal too Low - Intermittent 16736 - Ignition Control Circuit for Cylinder 2 P0352 - 004 - Malfunction - Intermittent Readiness: 0000 1001 00778 - Steering Angle Sensor (G85) 014 - Defective - Intermittent 00778 - Steering Angle Sensor (G85) 000 - - Question where is the G336 Sensor? The idle problem is coming from the leak I think. will check all at Tuesday. someone know how to teach the angle sensor with VCDS?
  25. Last week
  26. I am busy installing a NAV TV iPod adapter to my 07 3.4S Boxster 987 PCM 2.1 system and I need to find a switched power source for the bluetooth adapter that I have coupled to it. I thought the power out from the wiring bridge connector (used at the back of the PCM 2.1 unit) that came with the NAV TV system would provide a switched power connection however I realise now that the power on/off signal comes from the MOST fibre connection while power to the loom stays on. Does anyone know where the best place is to take a switched power tap from? Many thanks
