I'm unable to connect to the engine module on my '09 Cayenne with my new Durametric cable. I called tech support for an assist and was told that they are still working on coding to allow for connecting the 957 to the engine module. The Durametric website does list the MED9 for V6 as being available for reading/clearing codes. Wondering if anyone else has found a way to get this to work. I'm using version 6 software.
My car is a 2005 911 base model 997.
I had a tune installed and am having some issues with it. I only had the tune done because I put high flow cats on the car and had a stumble. The tune company is wanting a data log with the following actual values.
1. Engine RPM
> 2. Injection Time/Injection PW
> 3. Ignition Angle
> 4. Pedal Position
> 5. Actual Throttle Plate Angle
> 6.Actual Lambda Value Bank 1
> 7. Mean Fuel Trim Bank 1
> 8. Actual Lambda Value Bank 2
> 9. Mean Fuel Trim Bank 2
I started out trying to get this done with Durametric. The first obstacle I ran into was Durametric did not have compatibility with the variant on my ECU. I called their support and they were able to quickly get this resolved. The problem that I have now is that I don't have any actual values for the Actual Lamda Value for Bank 1 or Bank 2. Durametric basically told me that they have nothing to do with the values and if its not in there they can't help me.
The following is all the Actual Values in Durametric that I have to choose from.
1. AC pressure
2. Actual Camshaft angle bank 1

I am looking for other means to get a quality data log. I have just purchased an ODBlink MF wi-fi unit. I also have a few phone apps like Torque Pro, OBDdoctor pro, and OBDLink. The problem I am having is they have several Lambda PID's to choose from and am not sure witch ones to use.
If anyone has suggestions it would be greatly appreciated. even if the solution is using a totally different data logger.
Hello. Great site. I recently purchased a 04 996 AE with 113K. My OBD showed random misfires. I checked the plugs and coils. Coils were cracked so I replaced all plugs and coils. The plug condition was consistent across all cylinders... ash gray color and no pitting or carbon or oily plugs. The misfire codes returned and I noticed the idle is rough but the engine pulls and is smooth off idle and through the rev range. I purchase the Durametric and I ran actual values (codes showed random misfires across most cylinders) the check engine light came on at one point but had gone away on it's one while waiting for my cable to arrive.
My problem is I have lots of data to look at but no way to understand or to translate it into actionable information. I am not even sure that I captured the right parameters for my misfire error codes. Is there a good place to look at what the actual values should be for a 996? or a link to any tutorials on how to read the data and translate that into a what to check or troubleshoot?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated and thoroughly utilized.
Need some help diagnosing to fault codes in my ECM Module.

U0155: Lost communication with Instrument Cluster Control Cluster.
U0146: Lost communication with "Gateway A"
Searching Google only found two other Porsches with the same issue and they were undiagnosed. Now searching those faults individually found other vehicles had those faults when cracks developed in the Instrument Cluster solder joints, people disassembled their Instrument Clusters, resoldered all the joints and the fault went away.
Has anyone else had these faults or experience with them. I recently relocated from Arizona with glass smooth roads to the Los Angeles area and the roads are horrible!!! Just in the last 3-weeks my drivers door lock assembly failed and window goes up and down like crazy and difficult to lock door, I believe this failed due to the rough roads, these faults also developed at the same time, which leans me towards cracked solder joints in the Insteument Cluster. Car runs and drives fine, just have these faults now.
So I'm having this issue that is driving me crazy. My SAI (Secondary AIr Injection) and Oxygen Sensor are not reaching "Ready Status"
A little background about my car.

FVD Exhaust system
GMS Headers with 200 cell cats - has all 4 O2 sensors attached.

ECU Tuning Group tune
I had the car up in BC Canada since 2009 (although it is a US car) and had no problems passing the sniffer and obdII tests - both before and after all the mods except for the ECU tune.
I went to get my emissions testing done last week in Texas and failed due to the 2 systems being in not-ready status. I figured it might have to do with the cat delete (ROW) configured in the tune. I sent my ECU back to ETG in California and had them re-flash my ECU in order to re-enable the O2 sensors.
I cleared all codes and figured I would start fresh. I drove the car about 120 miles and attempted to follow the drive cycle mentioned in the forums but it was really tough with the roads out here. Everything is in ready status except for the SAI, and the O2 sensor. I can manually start the SAI using the Durametric system so I would believe the pump is not bad; however, I'm not
sure that I"m hearing the SAI start up when I cold start the engine.
For testing purposes I unplugged my O2 sensors from both bank1 and bank2 and they both threw fault codes which confirms that the ECU tune re-activated my sensors.
I've uploaded a few pictures with the results from a OBDII app as well as the Durametric Software to my Google Drive. I'm not quite sure how to interpret the Durametric Voltage results - especially the negative 50 V and -127V - seems quite odd.
Any help or guidance will be appreciated as I'm out of ideas.
