  3. Thanks red this site is now obviously reference only shame Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Yesterday
  5. Really old thread but can you get past these error codes using a MOST bypass loop? "MOST Fiber Optic Optical Loop Bypass Female Adapter"
  6. No, you can't switch them. Once the immobiliser code has been programmed into a KESSY/PAS control unit, it can't be over-written with a PIWIS tester. You might want to try an automotive electronics repairer, to see if they can write the immobiliser code directly to the eeprom. I have heard of that being done, but have no experience.
  7. Hi all, It has been a while. Anyway My TT is over 5 years old now and although it runs like a top a Spark plug change is recommended on a time basis. The car only has 16K miles on it. I'm also supposed to change the PDCC reservoir. I'm not even sure where the pump is. I most probably have to take the rear bumper off to get to it. The spark plugs are being blocked by the turbochargers. You can get good access by removing the rear wheels and the rear wheel well liners but do you really have to move the turbos? Or, is this just a mater of juggling extensions and scraping knuckles?
  8. I'm thinking of replacing my 997 GTS PDK transmission mount as well since the car is 8 years old. I called Sunset and the person said that the mount (circled in red) is part of the transmission and not sold seperately. So what happens if the mount is worn? Porsche can't possibly expect us to purchase a new transmission just because of the worn mounting right??!! Will an insert work if the mount is worn/torn?
  9. Just did this. I had to destroy the old key to remove it. I do believe it is glued in - I basically had to slowly bit by bit peel away the plastic around it. Put it in the new one and glued it in otherwise it would fall out. New key works great.
  10. Last week
  11. Just bought the Bovee1000 with the factory ipod adapter. Works perfectly
  12. 2006 C4S Cab, US version. Have a couple of PAS/Alarm related codes (8004: Terminal 50, 8005: Terminal S), alarm doesn't set, and doors will not lock with remote (double beep). The parts guy at my local Porsche dealership mentioned finding a salvage alarm control unit since the new control unit was being priced at $700. So I ordered one and am about to schedule service but noticed a line in the service/repair instructions "The KESSY/PAS control unit can only be taught once for one vehicle. Switching is not possible." Will the salvage alarm control unit be able to be programmed by the dealer or am I stuck buying a new one and the parts guy was mistaken? Thanks 8004: Terminal 50 (Does not clear) 8005: Terminal S (temporarily clears)
  13. What an absolute hero Loren, can you help me out as well? Model No.: BE 4462 Serial No.: Y5053841 Much love from Sweden!
  14. K44 - Geschwindigkeitsregelanlage = cruise control system. There will undoubtedly be several items that are directly/indirectly related to cruise control, such as speed signal, brake signal, etc.
  15. 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.
  16. You nailed it! First try! Thank you very much.
  17. 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.

  19. 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.
  20. Unfortunately, brake caliper bolt repairs use the largest heli coil and time sert, so no can do.
  21. 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.
  22. Test by putting meter leads on the battery plus and minus posts - engine not running.
  23. 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
  24. 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?
