  1. Ok, I started squeezing it like a teet on a cow and water broke through. Now anyone readiy this post knows where it is.
  2. My passenger/right side sunroof drain is filled with water. I’ve tried the Weedwhacker line twisting spinning with the Terrel etc. have gotten past depends into the connector but then hit a wall. I’d like to go from the firewall up to the top with the sunroof training starts but I can’t find out where it is in the firewall. It looks like it should be that nipple in the bottom photo, but there is no hole in it for the water to exit. I really need to find this and be done with it already. I tracked it from the bottom of the eight pill or two behind the fuse box but after that my fat hands can’t reach it to follow it anymore.
  3. ... and if I start running short of wire what kind of wire do I solder in to replace it?
  4. Checked all the fuses, but will look at thise other spliced wires. The strands of the black wires in the picture when cut back are very grey.
  5. ... and how do you remove the 433 relay under the seat? I want to test it without breaking it.
  6. 2006 V6 Cayenne 100k mi. My car died at the train station but my son was able to jump start me. I drove the car home and it hasn’t started since. That was May. I did a lot of reading on the forum and I pulled up the drivers carpet and the padding was wet, so I unwrapped the wire bundle, opened all the doors and windows, disconnected the battery, hung the carpet from the steering wheel and let Mother Nature dry the car out. The ends of the spliced wires were heavily corroded so I cut them back a little and rejoined them. After doing the wires my brake proportioning and lock fault messages disappeared. The lights, radio, a/c all work, but I hear nothing else- silence from my dead car. I checked all the fuses- right and left sides, and under the hood. The ground connection is fine. The 5A fuse under the driver seat is fine as well. The car didn’t start so I hooked up the Durametric: Vehicle Electrical System- 907 fault. Gateway- 532, 1314, 1321 So, I pulled the battery and the parts store exchanged it because it had a dead cell. It was getting dark out, and dinner was getting cold, but I put the battery in place and connected the cables. Lights, radio, a/c all work, but car still doesn’t start. No bad starter sounds, nothing. I can shift into neutral like normal. I cleaned up the cowl area and the drains are now clearer, checked my A/C drain and it’s clear. The passenger front sunroof drain has some water in it and I cannot pass a line from my weed trimmer/whacked all the way through- I took off the wheel and removed the wheel liner for full access. I tried sucking out any blockage with my shop vac to no avail. 2006 V6 Cayenne
  7. What do you have to do for the mute and scan? I don’t have Bose or a PCM and I am the original owner so it wasn’t changed. How does the Scosche dah kit look? I’m also looking at the AVIC-8201NEX. Which backup camera did you get? Where did you mount it? Does it have dynamic lines for parking? Do you have a picture(s) of the install of the head unit and camera mount? I’d appreciate seeing it. Thanks!
  8. I’m going to start by Isolating the left from the right and take it from there. I will post when I solve the problem.
  9. i went to go figure out why the button on the rear glass doesn’t work, and once I took the cover off I saw both wires broken. Rear hatch does open with key fob. Remove wiper and unit and then what? It looks like the wire broke really short, but I can’t tell for sure untilI get the rear wiper off the shaft and then remove the nuts on the unit inside? Am I close? What if the wire is broken at the actuator? And how the heck do you get that particular wire connector apart??? thanks.
  10. Has anyone come up with a solution? I just started getting this message myself- except it goes away immediately and doesn’t show up on the information menu . I have 0 warnings, yet each day it is now doing this. Dealer said I probably need a new headlight assembly for $1300 (part only) because the motor for the headlight alignment is in the headlight assembly. He was shooting from the hip- too busy to check it with the tester. Only problem is that my Xenon headlight assembly isn’t $1300.
  11. Contrary to advertising BS, just pumping freon into your system is not a good idea! You need to have your system evacuated, oiled, and then recharged. Return the junk kit and get it done right. I don't want to pay either, but I'm bringing my car to the stealer for this exact service in a couple of days.
  12. Interesting. I am hearing what sounds like an old diesel sound which sounded like it is coming from the transaxle, but my car has been doing it for a while and when it was checked on PIWIS at the dealer there were no faults found. I just changed engine oil and transfer case oil, along with fluids in both differentials, and am at a bit of a loss.
  13. I called Hawk and they offered to give me LTS or Ceramics to replace these lousy HPS pads
  14. You state that you headlight has a hole in it, but we're the electronics actually damaged? Is it possible you only need the housing? If so, you can get off cheaper.
  15. I went to the Hawk HPS and now regret it. I am thinking of taking them off and going back to stock.
  16. I didn't have auto lights because the car they had that i wanted didn't have them, but because of the rain sensor I was abble rto just change the lights and have the coming home feature activated. I' ve heard people say yes you can, and others say no you can't. Isupposedly if you have rain sensors the wiring is waiting, but the mirrors are over $700 and That is a big gamble.
  17. Putting those H&R springs on the car will theoretically make a bigger difference than changing sidewall height by 2", but hurry up and put them on so you can share your experience!
  18. Cool website, thanks for the url. The numbers on the tire sizes are wrong. I have 255/55/18 and am looking at 275/40/20. The difference is on average half-a-mile per hour- and you can't even go by that because the comparison tool doesn't compare the same tires. Obviously the ride Will be stiffer with a shorter side wall, which will in turn provide less flex when cornering, thus improving the performance which is why I'm looking for seat of the pants ride experience. I want to know how much more intense the bumps and potholes are in the 20 inch tire compared to an 18 inch tire in a Cayenne. Thanks for your input.
  19. How big an effect will moving to bigger wheels have? On ride quality I have 18" wheels and am looking at 20" wheels I like. I don't have an air suspension I have a V6.
  20. We'll see that, I'm safe because I still haven't gotten the James Bond feature to drive my car underwater to Potugal! Oh wait, I forgot, that was a Lotus. But seriously, what is the average mileage befonre needing a water pump on a a V6 Cayenne? Maybe a poll is in order? Also, are you talk about the miles or kilometers? Thanks, a future water pump is on my list of things to be ready for, after a fix for my cardan shaft which will need to be addressed soon enough.
  21. Sorry, I should have just said that I bought Redline fluids- yes I bought the 75W90 for the diffs. I am going to be changing my valvebody when the weather breaks and bought the necessary amount of D4 for the tranny and the transfercase.
  22. Just got back from the dealer. Transmission fluid in harness leading up to control unit. Start by replacing harness inside transmission and cleaning harness and replacing transmission control unit. Parts cost $1119.48, labor cost $1113.
