  1. Thermostat is easy. Did it last week. Same code. Didn’t have to remove a single hose. Minimal coolant loss
  2. On my 09 S w/ Bi-xenon there’s fuses for each headlight behind the cabin dash side panels. Maybe check there?
  3. Comfort settings via the pcm dash menu. Toggle “horn” in the alarm sub menu. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. First check the fuse, then top off and/or flush w/ new steering oil (use a little hand pump to remove old oil from reservoir>add new while turning turning the steering wheel full clock LR>repeat until it looks clean) More detailed instructions around here somewhere. Hope this helps. -Matt
  5. No worries brother. Glad to help. Things I've done myself - happy to share my experience: - HPFP - Vacuum pump - solenoid valve - starter - coils - Plugs - ox sensors - oil separator bank 2 - engine mounts - trans mount - both LP fuel pumps, filter, etc - micro switch rear latch - HVAC blower motor - rotors/brakes/parking brake - steering fluid change - brake flush - transmission oil - diff oil : front/rear - transfer case oil - all new plastic stone guards/ air dams underneath
  6. There is an ~18in. harness at each wheel that runs up the suspension and clips into another harness behind the wheel wells along the fender. It feeds the speed sensor and the brake pad indicator - mine happened to be the left rear - part number might be different as I have an 09S. expensive bugger. Check the free PET PDF via Porsche website for PN or just call a dealer. Most of the wear on mine were where the lower boot slides into the mounting bracket; likely from repeated removal over the years to change pad indicator wires when installing new pads...
  7. I can't speak to air suspension errors as I have coil overs, but the rest of those warnings are all related to your ABS/speed sensors. Remove and clean them all. Had the same issues. My issues were compounded by a corroded brake pad indicator harness wire (it also feeds the abs/speed indicator). So check all those while you're down there. If cleaning sensors doesn't work, replace. They're cheap and it's an easy fix. Harness is a $150+ flipping wire.
  8. Invest in a durametric scan tool. Can easily be reset through that. Useful for a number of things if you're the diy type. Or find an Indy with a piwis or the dealership. But an hour at the dealer pretty much equivalent to the cost of a durametric... Good luck. Let us know how it pans out. -Matt Side note: if the trans does in fact need an update , a durametric cannot apply firmware...
  9. Check for loose brake hardware, brake shield rubbing, debris around or in the caliper... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Removal of glove box NOT required. It's a 10 minute job swapping out the blower. 1 screw holds the lower dash kick panel. Bam there's the blower housing. 7 screws later there's the blower. Clean it. Replace it. Your call. Easy peasy. 2009 Cayenne S 160,000mi Chicago
  11. Replaced that as well hoping it'd solve the problem. No bueno. However, it needed replacing regardless as i was getting tired of tapping the pedal back up with my foot to turn off the red brake warning. 2009 Cayenne S 160,000mi Chicago
  12. So, the foot pedal assembly of my parking brake pops/snaps loudly every time I use it. The brake holds. But clearly something is not right. The popping sound emanates from the foot pedal assembly. Tried everything I can think of to remedy the issue: new parking brake shoes and hardware, calibrating the tension screw in the rear rotors... Nada. Anyone ever deal with this before or have any ideas? Thanks, Matt 2009 Cayenne S 160,000mi Chicago
  13. do you have built in radar detector? my issue was a loose screw under the instrument cluster cover in the dash lazily left by installer. Thing rolled around in there for a couple years before I finally figured it out. Drove me nuts. 2009 Cayenne S 160,000mi Chicago
