  1. I had a the same Problem and after a little research this is what I did,

     

    - Remove headlight, remove covers and dry it out.

    - Once dry carefully remove the headlight gasket (This is the gasket that Wraps around the sides and top of headlight assembly)

    - With a soft bristle brush and some alcohol thoroughly clean the seam where the two headlight halves meet.

    - Once dry apply flowable silicone in the seam where the two headlight halves meet.

    - Allow to cure for two hours, re-install the headlight gasket, and install the headlight back in its place.

  2. Hi Guys, I am a proud owner of a 2010 Porsche Cayenne Base model and I have been having a intermittent Engine hesitation issue. the following is a detailed issue of whats been happening, any suggestions that would help resolve this is appreciated.

     

    About a month ago I was coming back from Roosevelt lake ,AZ which is about 3 hours from Tucson, it was a hot day 113deg, I was already in town and the gas gauge read about 1/8 of a tank and I was starting to move from a light when all of the sudden it felt like the engine stalled and came back on for a second then it did it again and my CEL came on.

     

    I thought maybe my gauge was off and i was running out of fuel so i found the nearest gas station and filled up, I drove home and connected my car to my Icarsoft Computer and it was showing error P2293 Rail Pressure Control, I cleared the error and decided I would drive the car and see if it would happened again, Two months and hundreds of miles of mixed city and highway driving went by without a hitch.

     

    Last week I had to go to LA so I packed up the car (4 passengers and luggage) and headed out. About two hours in on I8 right before Yuma it was 114 degrees outside and  I was cruising at about 85 MPH, the gas gauge read about 5/8 of a tank all oil and coolant temps were normal when all of the sudden the hesitation came back, it would run normal then hiccup then run normal, ect.. and the CEL came back on, this went on for about 20 minutes but I was still able to maintain 80-85 MPH.

     

    After 20 minutes of this we decided to pull into a gas station and fill the tank with gas to see if anything would change and wouldn't you know that after filling up and setting off again over the mountain pass towards San Diego the car ran without a hitch, we averaged 77 MPH all the way to LA, but we would stop to fill up whenever the gauge read 5/8. after a couple of hours the CEL turned off on its own.

     

    On our way back to Tucson we decided to fill up in San Diego and not fill up until it started to act up, and to my surprise the car once more ran flawlessly.

     

    We didn't fill up until the gas low warning chime came on in Marana, AZ. The highest temperature this day was 104 deg. We filled the tank and made it home without incident. The next day I connected my car to my Icarsoft computer and it was showing the following error codes: P2293 Rail Pressure control, P0300 Random/multiple cylinder misfire detected, P0301 cylinder 1 misfire detected, P0303 cylinder 3 misfire detected.

     

    Could this be ambient temperature related? Vapor lock at high ambient temps? If it was the fuel pumps you think it would have failed again on the way back, right?

    This has to be happening to other people with 2007-2010 Cayenne Base models. Any input will help.

     

    Thanks in Advance.

     

    Sincerely;

    Paul


  3. Another thing i forgot to mention is that when I first turn the AC blower on high and its not running at its full speed yet if I do anything electric like turn on the windshield wipers or roll down a window the blower will jump up to high speed and then back down, then after a while it will kick up to high speed and run fine after that. I'm still hoping its still the blower motor resistor.

    Has anyone had a similar problem?

     

    Sincerely;

  4. Hi guys,

    i am a proud owner of a 2010 Porsche Cayenne base, and I love this vehicle, but I’m having a issue with the AC blower motor, when I first turn on the AC and put the fan on high it blows but not very hard then all of the sudden it jumps to high and runs perfectly, does anyone know what could be causing this, I’m hoping it’s just the blower motor resistor. Any input would help.

    thanks in advance

     

    sincerely

     

    Paul


  5. Hey guys and gals I have a 2010 Porsche Cayenne base and I’m having trouble connecting my IPhone 6S Plus to my PCM running software version 1.47. Now I know that Apple phones don’t accept the sim access profile, but I can’t figure out how to switch the PCM over to Hands free profile. I went to my local Porsche dealer here in Tucson, AZ today and  I told them that I had read online that they should be able to switch my PCM from SAP to HFP, but after 1 1/2 hours of trying they said that the couldn’t find how to switch it over. Any suggestions? Can it be changed using a durametric? Should I talk to another dealer in Phoenix? Any suggestion or insight will help. Thanks in advance.


  6. Hi, Everyone,

     

    I am new to this forum and first of all I would like to say that this site is the best for information on maintenance, repair and tips of all Porsche sites on the web.

    I am currently a new owner of a 2010 Porsche Cayenne Base with 70,000 miles and so far except for the clogged cowling and a/c drains that i fixed (thanks to this site) it has been the best car I have owned. My question is, the owners manual says that the ATF should be changed every 160,000 miles or I think 12 years. Is this safe or should I be doing it more often regardless of what they say. What do you experienced owners recommend, I Love this car and I want it to last as long as possible. All previous maintenance had been done at the stealership and I don't see any record of them changing the ATF before I got it. Thanks In advance.


  7. Cowling Intake Leaf Problem Solved


    Last week we had two days of constant drizzle and just by chance I noticed that the carpet was wet under my front floor mats! obviously I panicked and started looking for the source of the water leak. After clearing the condensate drain (which did not seem to be plugged) I went online and started researching for other possible causes and found that many other Cayenne owners get water intrusion in the front foot wells due to clogged cowling drains, so i checked mine and low and behold they were clogged! These Drains are not easy to get to, one is under the drivers side cowling and is accessed either by partially removing the fender well or by removing the louvered access door where the brake reservoir is (this door is also the air intake for the A/C system) and using a straightened out plastic hanger fish around in there until you find the drain and poke thru to clean it. The other Drain is under the passenger side cowling and accessed either by partially removing the fender well or by loosening two clips, prying up the cowling and using a straightened out plastic hanger fish around in there until you find the drain and poke thru to clean it. After doing this and flushing the drains out with water multiple times I realized that this plugged drain issue is mostly caused the the large size of the holes in the louvered access door. The holes are so big that just about any leaf can fall in there and believe me getting those leafs out is a nightmare! So after a lot of head scratching, looking at other manufactures properly designed cowl vents and cussing I came up with a solution that should take care of 95% of the drain clogging leafs, so instead of describing the rest ill post the pictures and if you have any questions just let me know. FYI: the Strips are 1.5" wide (this fits perfectly between each rib)
