  1. Readings from Durametric tool. Upon looking at actual values, engine shows A/C Compressor OFF & Refrigerant Pressure shows 192 & 7-10 bar. At certain times, the A/C Compressor will show ON and A/C blows great. I have replaced the A/C compressor with brand new, no change. At times, the Air Quality sensor value says 0 and others it says 1. At one point, I was pretty sure once it said 1, the A/C started blowing cold, but cannot confirm that for sure, usually always says 0. What else do I need to check to diagnose this issue properly? It appears something is causing the A/C compressor to command OFF instead of ON, just not sure why.
  2. I have a 2006 Porsche Cayenne S, and my A/C is intermittently working. Everything works fine on the dash, just does not blows cold all the time. I have scanned for codes with my Durametric, and the only code in the A/C is: 1299 Implausible Gateway signal. I have cleared the codes, but it immediately comes back. Upon looking at actual values, engine shows A/C Compressor OFF & Refrigerant Pressure shows 192. I have replaced the A/C compressor with brand new, no change. What else do I need to check to diagnose this issue properly? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Please advise.
  3. That is what I am requesting, how to test them and fix this issue myself. I know how to take it to a dealer and pay the bill, but am more interested in learning and fixing it myself. I have access to A/C pressure gauges I can hook up and just purchased a Durametric scan tool. Any help on diagnosing my issue is greatly appreciated. Please advise.
  4. My air conditioning has intermittently been working since I purchased the vehicle but seemed to be getting worse and worse about blowing cold. It is a dual zone automatic climate control system. Sometimes I can get it to blow cold but constantly fooling with the settings, modes, and fan speeds but lately it is very hard. I am 99% sure that the A/C compressor is cycling because there is a change in pitch in the engine when I turn the temperature low, but still no cold air coming out of vents. I put 1.5 cans of freon in the system with a simple can & hose, but it will not accept any more, so I assume its full. Any common issues or things to try and fix this without an expensive trip to the dealer? I appreciate your help! Please advise.
  5. Loren, can you send me a link to the best/cheapest place to buy the Durametric scan tool you suggest?
  6. Hi. I have a 2006 Porsche Cayenne S, I am trying to figure out my issue with dash warning: "Check Headlamp Beam Adjustment" The headlights both move fine when the lights are turned on but error message immediately lights up. I have replaced the rear level sensor (was corroded), modified headlight connections to verify they are 100% connected, cleaned all terminals on headlights and level sensors of any corrosion, and replaced both HID headlamp bulbs; but still has error. What does everyone suggest to fix this issue? Any help is greatly appreciated!
  7. Hi Guys. I am new to the forum and proud new owner of a beautiful 06 Cayenne S. I love my new Porsche, but am slowly working on fixing a few minor issues... First of all, my driver door latch is defective or at least the switch in there is. The vehicle never knows when the driver door is open, no dome lights or door ajar switch or chime. I have already purchased a brand new replacement latch assembly. Any instructions or tutorials on the fastest and easiest way to replace this? Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks!
