  1. I was thinking that too... What if they have a core charge on the Alt, starter, battery and Driveshaft? I also live an hour away from the place so dropping by is not feasible. I will at least ask to see the old parts.. Also, to quieten the PDCC pump up front, Could I just wrap it in Dynomat or similar to take away some of the frequency? It shouldn't cause heat build up and issues down the road would it?
  2. I let the Dealer I bought it from know all of the Porsche dealer's findings and they agreed to replace all the affected parts! So they have all the items in and I just have to drop it off for a few days while they replace the above items! I will post a follow up once everything has been taken care of. Thanks, Ryan
  3. Just wanted to give an update after taking it to the Porsche dealership! So the Engine noise I was worried about that I thought sounded like a Power Steering pump whirring etc. turned out to be the PDCC. They said it's perfectly normal and can actually be much louder than mine! I find it to be rather annoying but if it's "normal", so be it. Everything else they found was the same things the original place found and confirmed. Bad alternator/battery, starter, thermostat, drive shaft, front rotors and pads. I hope to get all this resolved soon and can start to really enjoy my new to me Cayenne! Thanks for all the help everyone! I will post if anything else happens. Ryan
  4. Gotcha! I was thinking it was along the lines of that but just wanted to get a sanity check! I appreciate everyone's time and help so far! Also, I was looking at the fine print on the warranty and says it voids the warranty if me or anyone else works on the car or does anything to it without their approval etc. I hope having the Porsche dealership Inspect it does not break that. I don't see how it could possibly but I could see them trying to pull that crap if they actually found something big etc. Who knows. ryan
  5. I certainly will! I am waiting to hear back from the Service manager to schedule an appt. In the mean time I checked the Voltage of the Battery via the iCarSoft POR II and when it's Cranked no load it reads 13.3-13.5v With all items on, 13.0. with the engine off and sitting for a bit it's hovering right at 12. I'm not sure if anyone is familiar with the iCarSoft but when I am doing a real time diagnostics with it, and I'm in the settings for the"Ignition counter misfire detection", I am getting a steady stream of a fast moving counter to around 5000 and it resets to zero. I am not getting any reports of a misfire on any cylinders so I am not sure what this read is. Does anyone have any experience with this? Here is a link to that video.
  6. Thanks for all the info guys! Lewis, In the video, I am moving the steering wheel back and forth and you should be able to hear the noise change pitch as I do it. I decided to take it directly to the Porsche dealership and have them do a once over on it and take that report back to them. I want everything sorted out before I start making payments on it.. Thanks again! Ryan
  7. Hi Everyone! Long time Lurker and final a first time Porsche owner! I just got a new to me 2008 CCT with 56K miles on it. I really like it but I am already having several issues with it. The good news is, the dealership I got it from is including a 60 day 3K mile 100% warranty on all parts and repairs. One of the several issues I am having is it sounds like the power steering pump is going and it makes a loud whining noise and they are saying it's normal. The ps fluid level is normal, but it is a very distinct noise that I can hear from a distance away. I would really appreciate if you could help me decipher this noise. Here is a video of the noise. Other problems are: Needs a new driveshaft. Needs the thermostat replaced. It keeps throwing a 1117 Load Signal Generator Terminal DF. Battery is reading 13.4 max with no load running and drops to 13.0 with lights etc. on. They insist it's good. Brakes won't stop squealing after replacing pads and they had to replace they front left Accelerometer because of the air lift system error. WHEW! I still thinks it's going to be an awesome vehicle. I go back this week to drop it off for 2 days for all those repairs but I want to make sure I get everything that is obvious. Also since they will have the intake manifold off, I was thinking I should replace the Plastic T connectors for the coolant lines. Is there anything else I should deal with while they have it all apart? Ignition coil packs? adding this for new readers: Thanks for any help guys. Sincerely, Ryan
