  1. Mine has the Bose and the auxiliary battery under the sub woofer. It's easy to check and only takes a fee minutes to remover the two bolts holding in the Bose sub woofer to see under it.
  2. Hi again, I eventually ordered a service key (plastic) with no electronics and headed to where my Cayenne was parked with flat battery. I tried to start the car with the service key but it did not work and the key was held in the ignition lock due to no power. So it didn't seem to switch over batteries for cranking......unless both the rear and front battery were both discharged. After jump starting and later fully recharging the car on a trickle charger, I tried the service key again. But I only see a message about the immobilizer being active on the dash display and the key can't crank the engine. Is there something else that I would need to do to get the car to crank from the front (under drivers seat) battery? Thanx for any support.
  3. What version of the Durametric software did you purchase and why cant you do the things that you thought that you would be able to?
  4. Well mine is a Turbo S with the Bose system but no spare wheel, so you could fit the auxiliary battery and keep the Bose if you wanted. I don't really see the benefit of auxiliary battery as it currently stands because it's still running flat after 4-5 weeks of inactivity. I will try the plastic key trick to see if it will still start off the aux battery at the end of this month as the main voltage is presently sitting at 10.42v so it ain't gonna start off that one. Would you be able to provide any details on the kill switch and photo of how you fo haver it fitted? Any help to allow me to purchase one and the other parts required that I know will already fit would be great. Thanx
  5. I actually replaced both batteries last year, my problem is that I leave this car parked for weeks on end and usually get the low battery message from tube tracker system around 7-8 weeks. At the same time I did install a 100w solar panel and charge controller that goes to both front and rear batteries, but as I'm parked in a connected car park the panel can only get limited sunlight. (I prop the solar panel up in the front window and park facing south). This increases the time to a flat battery by another 4 weeks in summer time. After normal driving I see that the battery voltages measure 12.2 volt on the front battery and 12.4 volt on the rear battery. Is this normal 'fully charged ' status from the engine alternator? I have contemplated trying to install a master battery 'kill switch' so that all power would be disconnected as a last attempt to have full battery when I return to the vehicle, but I'm not sure where in the system such a switch would be installed.....would under the drivers seat have a place to disconnect both batteries? As the auxiliary battery setup seems to be two isolated power systems, it would I have to fit two kill switches? By 'kill switch' I mean the single pole battery isolators that they use in some motor sports. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  6. Hi bigbazuki, I don't have a dummy plastic key, but I do have a metal dummy key that I had cut locally. So that key does not have the security chip. Would that key act and work like the Porsche plastic dummy key? I have dual batteries and the KESSY systems installed. Also do you have any test procedure for the dual battery system and change over relay etc? Thanx.
  7. Ok there is a pressure valve in the jet carrier. That's what stops the fluid from draining out. I tried to dismantle the old unit but was unable to get it apart.....so I purchased a new OPC item and all is now well Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  8. I had a blocked right hand head light washer jet, so I replaced it. But now the water from the washer bottle keeps draining out through the new nozzle. Is there supposed to be some check valve in the jet carrier part that bolts behind the front bumper/spoiler? If I re fit the old blocked jet nozzle jet the leak stops and also they're is no leak from the left hand washer jet nozzle which is working. A replacement jet carrier is £52 ($75) so I wanted to be sure this is the problem before I order. Thanx for any advice
  9. According to this app https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.trentapps.cel that code is: Porsche P0441 Evaporative Emission Control System Incorrect Purge flow I seem to remember that there is a breather filter system on top of the fuel tank that you can access from under the rear seats. If the purging system is blocked maybe this make the car run rich and that might cause your misfire codes......? Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  10. Why not use the cigarette lighter socket and apply a 12v supply before changing the battery? Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  11. For those of you that have already drained this oil collection point, could you comment if it might be possible to install a drain tap at that point to make repeat drains later on? Or do you feel the effort of that modification would outweigh the actual task of removing the pipe and draining each time it's required? Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  12. Do you have the dual battery system? One under the driver's seat and if you have the auxiliary battery then it will be in the trunk under the Bose subwoofer. If you have the auxiliary battery that it's the default starting battery while the one under driver's seat if for electrical system but can be used by the car system for starting if the one in trunk goes flat.

  13. I would suggest that first you pop out the headlamp unit and clean the connector on the back of the headlamp. These are prone to poor connections. Some WD 40 would help here. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  14. Nice looking kit, can you share the item number or more details on where you purchased the test kit from? Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  15. Hi, Porsche service intervals are based on either fixed mileage or two yearly period. Check your handbook for the service chart and then your mileage and service book stamps. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
