  1. Simple test for a Porsche specific scan code -- P1579 = Bad Crankshaft Position Sensor
  2. Have someone press down on the hood while you pull the cable. If the latch is slightly out of alignment that should help.
  3. Did you use the procedure in the Lost Radio Code FAQ? If not, then please do so and re-submit.
  4. You have two problems... First check fuses. 61 is a door lock not actuating. Could be a bad microswitch. 12 relates to a door lock also. 58 No current in tank servomotor despite relay actuation Possible cause of fault - Short circuit to ground/open circuit in the wiring between the switching element for the filler flap and the alarm system control module - Open circuit in wire between ground point 7 and alarm system control module - Switching element for filler flap faulty - Control module faulty
  5. The alarm/locking horn is a different horn. The front horns are cheap horns (on all Porsches) - which is why I suggest testing them off the car with 12 VDC. I replaced mine with electric air horns.
  6. Did you test both horns when you did the replacement? The should always work when you apply 12 VDC to them. Did you check the wiring to the horns? Any steering wheel noises? Has the steering wheel been off before?
  7. P2096 Lambda correction downstream, bank 1 – rich/lean control limit exceeded Possible fault causes - Leakage in exhaust system between the two oxygen sensors - Oxygen sensor upstream faulty (contaminated/aged)
  8. It is normal to hear more air flow noises with aftermarket filters. You could always test by putting the OEM filters back in.
  9. P1606 CAN Timeout, ASR/MSR Possible fault cause - No signals in PSM control module Fault code 1316 PSM control module Possible causes of fault - No signal/communication (no signal from PSM control module on CAN drive) - Faulty (fault value for wheel speed or distance pulses) It looks like you have no CAN communication to the PSM controller. Check the wiring at the controller and the connectors.
