Are you sure its not the recall issue for the pump seal in the tank
Exhaust probably knocking on front subframe.
Why can't it be the battery?
It sounds like the micro switch. I have not taken apart the cayenne door latch off but if it is similar to the Boxter's which my Audi TT uses, the $7 micro switch goes out causing exactly the same issue. Try giving it a good clean with WD 40 just in case its merely dirt before removing.
Sounds like you should check your drive shaft bearing.
Resolved There was a missing fuse on the RH fuse box all clear and fully functioning.
Interesting idea but not true according to the diagnostics, giving a high beam error. The HID's are meant to fill the gap when the bi-xenon's point up. Thanks anyway I have run diagnostics and have the following error: 02088 - Lights for Auxiliary High Beams 007 - Short to Ground - Intermittent
I have not been able to get my additional high beams to come on. I have checked bulbs replaced a failing headlamp harness, replaced the broken mounting bracket and tested contacts. I examined the headlight unit and discovered the additional lamps are not controlled by the ballast. I tested the corresponding terminals but got no voltage terminals 5 and 7. The main lamps do lift up for high beam and the corner lamps go out but the addition halogen H7 lamps do not come on. I also pulled the 40amp fuse from the left fuse panel as I read this would reset the lights. Am I missing a relay that turns them on external to the headlight unit? I have no wiring diagram so I am at a loss. Is this something that is programmable through the OBD2? Any help would be appreciated many thanks.

New battery solved issue thanks
Thank you JFP, I redid the test for amps, I am starting to understand the car burns quite a few amps waking up and takes several minutes to drop from about 8 amps to .03 - .07 amps when finally asleep. I spent a full 24hr day charging the battery at first then spent the next day cleaning it with doors open car never went to sleep. I then took the battery to have it checked out, I got the ok from the store but I am starting to believe although it took charge and it was only 1-1/2 years old its amp/hr life may have been shortened. The car has been idle for some time so I think the battery has been completely drained several times. I'll let you know how it goes with new uprated longer amp/hr battery as my multi meter is telling me it is only drawing .02-.07 amps when left alone and locked. I will be adding a solar charger to the dash for $25, seams like a good idea for this car.
omolddesign started following 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)
I disconnected one by one the terminals under the seat off my newly purchased Cayenne until the battery drain went away. I had to disconnect them all including the large one I assume goes to the alternator before the voltage drain went away. It did not matter which one I reconnected the voltage drain came back. Does this mean the alternator is shorted? I have had the car running with a freshly charged battery but left overnight the battery is flat. Any ideas
