  1. I did some major service on my Cayenne such as EVAP valve, Venturi Tubes, CrankCase Vale, Coolant Hose and AirFilter Plastic cover. Looks like plastic hose/covers just cracks after a while. This cost me lots of money and I don't drive this car much and after this SMOG failed because of Secondary Air stuff. My Smog is due next month though. I will wait end of this month else will take it to the dealer and give him more money and say keep all of my money and be happy. I hope that will fix this stupid issue. My local mechanic told me that SIA is the problem with German Cars.
  2. Thats great info. I did pay the registration fees but not sure how to get Smog extension. Can you please expand on that? I did go to Smog shop and now in BAR system it is showing "R" status which means that some monitor was not ready. I did call BAR and they said that they are aware of the problem and either I need to continue driving or take to the dealership. If dealership cant fix then I have to take the documentation to the referee and they can waive the smog. My local mechanic also told me that it would require many cold starts. Driving will not help and this is the problem with German cars. Did your car set the monitor yet? I've been parking my car outside now so that it freezes in night and hopefully this indicator is set.
  3. Pls keep this thread live. Do you think it makes sense to take it to the dealership to get the drive cycle completed? Anyone has experience with that? My mechanic told me the same thing and said it is the problem with German cars. Really annoying. There are no codes its just the secondary air stuff.
  4. I have Porsche Cayenne 2006 Base and recently spent almost $2K on repair check engine light fix/coolant hose. I took it for SMOG and everything looks good except Secondary Air Monitor not ready. I have driven the vehicle for almost 100 miles and still not ready. Smog shop is saying that continue driving it but I am not convinced. I have tried various drive cycles but nothing is helping. Car runs great except SIA monitor not ready. I don't want to take it to the dealer again since I've spent enough money on diagnostic and other stuff. (I haven't purchased Duramatic Software Yet). Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions. I still have one month left for the Smog deadline. There is no Check engine light so just wondering if still I go ahead and replace new Secondary Air Monitor proactively. Looks like its cheap ($165) but labor is hard.
