1 pointIs anybody know how to set the date in PCM 2.1 (2008 Cayenne S)? The date display is not showing up anymore on the main display (blank). This is happened after replacing the main battery. I can set the time without issue but can't seem to find the menu to set the date (apart from selecting the date format).
1 pointMake sure you keep an eye on the coolant level in the tank. You displaced some air in the system and your coolant level may drop. 50/50 mix of Porsche coolant and distilled water to top it up. Also make sure you have the latest coolant tank cap...it is blue and the part number ends in 04. The old caps had a tendency to leak so Porsche updated/revised the cap. The part number is located on the cap. Good job!
1 pointHow is the coolant level? Any recent work done on the cooling/heating system? New tank? New pressure cap? New water pump? The reason I ask is it is very difficult to "burp" the cooling system on these cars. Make sure the coolant level is correct and open the "burp" valve on the coolant tank by raising the wire to open the valve (the black valve on top of the coolant tank). Leave it up. Several heating and cooling cycles is necessary to remove air from the system. Always when doing so, put the heat on maximum so any air is forced out of the system. While doing so, constantly check the coolant level and top it up if necessary.
1 pointReset 'Service Now' Message - Durametric I know this is a super simple one, but I have seen many inquiries with plenty of people saying this is not possible. So thought to provide accurate steps. In case you need to reset that pesky message appearing on your speedo, telling you to service your car now, do the following. I have been doing this via Durametric, with 100% success rate so far. Durametric sw ver: 18.104.22.168 - Connect cable to ODB2 port in car, and other end of cable into powered on laptop - Start Durametric SW - IF asked to choose your year/vehicle, do so and click OK to proceed - Click the + sign next to Instrument Cluster section to expand it - Highlight the 'Commands' section - On right side of window, you will see prompt is you want to reset the service message. - Click reset, wait for completion message, click OK to close window and close Durametric. Done. Author ciaka Category Cayenne (9PA, 9PA1) - Maintenance Submitted 10/13/2016 06:24 PM
