  1. Hi there - My 2005 Cayenne S is running great. On occasion though I notice 4th gear trying to find itself especially if I step on the gas pedal and it's time to go into 5th it will flare its revs up then I let off the gas and it settles into 5th. I don't think the tranny fluid has been changed yet although the vehicle does have 190K miles (305K kms). I have been told by Porsche that changing the fluid might do more harm than good. I am wondering why they wouldn't recommend a fluid change which might help this 4th-5th gear occasional flare. I was hoping to get some input from you kind folks. Many thanks!


  2. is this a bulb issue or the actual unit itself...both sides seems a bit weird that they both would stop flashing at the same time...vehicle info is telling be the check corner indicator bulbs, at least the sensor is recognizing that something is off...if anyone has a plan of attack I would appreciate the feedback on how I should proceed...many thanks!


  3. Good to know CB. The Durametric is good to have as I have been reading up on apparatus required as the owner of one of these SUV's. I am also pretty handy BUT (that's a big BUT) i am at the mercy of all these electronics and computers. The motor purrs nicely, for the time being that's all I have until I read the data. As far as engine/transmission would you say I'm pretty safe?? tough question...


  4. Just recently purchased a 2005 Cayenne S with 303,000 kms. The vehicle runs great, small issues (bulbs, seat warmers yada yada...) and no warning lights on the dash except for brake wear sensors (!) on the vehicle info display. Should I be worried that an any time this thing will explode on me? The vehicle had been a leased car most of its life. Clean CarFax. I am a new Porsche owner never driven one before. I just need some reassurance or information on how these handle once they surpass such high kms.

    I went back into the headlight again last weekend and found the short harness that sits in the cradle had the insulation falling off all of the wires.  This is likely the cause of my right headlight check indicator problem.  I removed the harness cleaned it with isopropyl alcohol and coated the whole think in a few coats of liquid electrical tape.  Haven't have any problems with it since.

    I took both headlights out, brought them indoors (-20 Celsius), cleaned the connectors, cleaned the contacts for both indicator bulbs, slapped them back in, and viola! worked until an hour later, bummer, right indicator failed. I will have to wait until milder weather to look at the harnesses and assess..good information thx!

    I have had intermittent and lost connections (check dipped beam and turn signal not working) on both of my 06 cayenne S headlights.  In my case the connectors do not seat deeply enough in the headlight due to wear/damage to the tray, headlight, and connector.  Plastics do not stay the same shape forever so rather than buying new trays and headlights to fix the tolerance issues I put some self adhesive rubber (like foam tap) behind the connector on the tray to move the connector slightly forward so it pushes it more deeply into the headlight.  I also put some deoxit on the contacts to help remove oxides and improve conductivity.  If you have a connectivity problem this is certainly your cheapest solution as the alternative -  trays are about 80$ each and the headlights range from 250$ for halogen to 1400$ for porsche zenon.

    This seems like the wise choice to start. Having issues with mine as well. I will try tighten up the connectors and the actual tray guides. Have to get creative!
