  1. Today
  2. I replaced the switch today with some problems, like one of the screws was stuck.. Anyways, I replaced the switch, tried starting the car, all lights would go on as usual, the key turned smooth, but the car wouldn't start. No click, nothing.. any ideas? Thanks.
  3. You nailed it! First try! Thank you very much.
  4. Yesterday
  5. thanks for this excellent and right-on advise; my 2012 Porsche Panamera turbo would not continue reminding me the oil was at minimum after i added a quart; the problem was indeed the front hood switch ... i tested it with a ohmmeter (with insulation puncturing test leads) and sure, enough, the switch was struck closed ... i squirted some electronic contact cleaner in it, waited for drying, and it started working again - it is supposed to open when hood is closed and closed when hood is open; i jumped into the driver's seat, ignition on, and checked oil ... sure enough the message changed from minimum level to information not available now!! ... so, I expect after I drive it a bit (10km) and check again, it will thank me for adding a quart - THANKS AGAIN FOR THE HELP! ... I had begun thinking about draining all the oil just to get a measurement! hopefully this helps somebody.

    • FOR SALE
    • USED

    For sale is a 2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS. This highly coveted car is in excellent condition both inside and out, and runs and drives exceptionally well. This 6,605-mile car has been impeccably well cared for and maintained by the second owner. The Lava Orange car is equipped with the naturally aspirated 4.0L DOHC 24-valve flat-six with direct fuel injection delivering 500 hp at 8,250 rpm and 339 foot-pounds of torque at 6,250 rpm, which powers the car from 0-60 mph in 3.3 seconds, and achieves a top speed of 193 mph. The engine is mated to the 7-speed dual-clutch Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) transmission, rear limited-slip differential, rack and pinion steering, and 4-wheel ABS with ventilated front and rear disc brakes. The sports exhaust system has two front silencers, two catalytic converters and one rear silencer made of lightweight titanium. The car rolls on forged alloy wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 P265/35ZR20 tires in the front and P325/30ZR21 tires in the rear fitted with a tire pressure monitoring system. The car features Porsche Stability Management (PSM), including Electronic Stability Control and Traction Control. The Porsche’s independent front suspension combines McPherson-type struts with longitudinal and transverse links. The rear axle has a multi-link suspension. Height, camber, track, and the anti-roll bars can be individually adapted for use on the racetrack. The chassis is engineered with dynamic engine mounts and Porsche Active Suspension Management with sports tuning, and electronic stability control. The front splitter and louvered front fenders help deliver 243 pounds of downforce at 186 mph, and the rear wing delivers 485 pounds of downward pressure at the same speed. Safety features include driver and passenger airbags, along with the Porsche Side Impact Protection System. Additional safety features include the headrests, which form an integral part of each seat, an energy-absorbing steering column, three-point seat belts with pre-tensioners and force limiters, as well as, energy-absorbing elements in the dashboard. Additional features for this car include the leather interior in Black/Lava Orange microfiber, extended range fuel tank (23.9 gallon), front axle lift system, sound package plus, fire extinguisher, seat belts in Lava Orange, auto-dimming mirrors with integrated rain sensor, Porsche Communication Management with the Navigation Module, wheels painted in satin black, and Bi-Xenon headlights in black with the Porsche Dynamic Light System. This car is a great opportunity for someone to drive a high-performance car featuring a host of cutting-edge race-bred technologies and many luxury appointments one would expect from Porsche. Reward yourself. The car is in the Seattle area, and has a clean Title. Asking price is $179,900. Let me know if you have any questions. Link to photos: https://photos.app.goo.gl/HMKZk9TjrMbvHHvt9

  8. We did them all the time on several makes of vehicles, it is not a major issue. Not fixing it properly is to risk a catastrophe.
  9. Unfortunately, brake caliper bolt repairs use the largest heli coil and time sert, so no can do.
  10. You need to drill out the damaged threads, and then install proper sized timeserts or Helicoil inserts; using any other method is just plain dangerous.
  11. Test by putting meter leads on the battery plus and minus posts - engine not running.
  12. I found this one online, not sure if its mine as i read cayenne has the ecd17 but if someone speaks german and can see cruise control here, migh help me a lot. i looked for it as tempomat...still no luck
  13. Doing the front brakes on my 2006 V6 Cayenne with 205k mi. the caliper bolts on the driver side took a lot of strength to lean on a breaker bar to get them out. Both holes needed to be re-tapped. On the top hole the threads came out with the bolt. On the bottom hole I was able to re-thread the hole with a tap and it holds the full torque of 200 ft. lbs. On the top Hole I couldn’t re-thread it so I went with a time set kit. Unfortunately, the time sent is a little loose in the hole. Obviously, I screwed up. What can I do other than replacing the whole knuckle? I don’t know how to weld. I was thinking of cleaning everything up with denatured alcohol and trying JB Weld to hold/weld in the time sert, but I am unsure if that will work. I can pick up a knuckle off flea bay, but that means I need access to a press, which I don’t have. I can’t drive anymore due to medical reasons, but my son could use the car for the winter instead of his GTI which is a sled in the snow. My son can’t wrench to save his life. Yes I know about anti-seize, and I thought I used it. The caliper bolts on the other side of the car came out without damaging the threads, maybe I forgot yo put anti-seize on the caliper bolts on this side. Either way, I need help. The stealer will want around $500 for the knuckle, and probably another $800-$1000 for labor. Then there are the parts they will say that they have to replace to do the job to their specifications. I expect them to do press in a new wheel bearing as they should. That’s a lot of money to put into a car that’s almost 14 years old considering that if it gets into an accident the insurance company will total it and give me next to nothing, and I just put new front discs and rotors on the car. Suggestions?
  14. Hey guys, i am searchin at many places but i cant find so maybe someone has done the same before. Thanks to one post here i saw we can do retrofit cruise control, however at the tutorial there is 955 with different connectors for the dme, so installed the parts and put the wire ready now i dont know to which pin should i connect it. here is an image of my dme. All the pinout that i see, are talking only for the colorful pins and non of them have the full diagram, i search as touareg as well but still no luck. If you could helm i will apprichiate it a lot, anyways i apprichiate this group as it helped me many times 😛 957 3.6 here.

  17. Would appreciate the groups advice....Looking at a 2012 Panamera Turbo for sale...low miles, one owner, etc., Any engine, suspension, or electronics I should be especially careful to focus on during when I get checked out by independent garage? Weak points? Anyone using the Durametric software on this generation Pano? Thanks, in advance! Mike
  18. TY for the reply millerchris85 and admin Loren. 2004 cayenne turbo. Main belt in front gone. Found the tutorial to replace belt. Bought a multi V belt made by Continental OE Tech Series. Computer says belt compatible and looks right but was called an accessory belt not main drive belt. Trying to cross reference part numbers. Number on the belt I have is D4071161. Going to attempt today to replace (12/11/19) so will find out. Would like advice for the future to confirm cross referencing part numbers. Thanks again for the reply.
  19. Hey guys, i hope any of you might be able to assist me on this, so on a 957 my plugs are not the same, one is a more wide and is located on the driver side the wider (the dme still on the passenger side) but the connectors are opposite. do you know should i connect it at the pin 38 of the big plug? thanks in advance
