The easiest fix of them all is do not allow any liquids in the car, usually it ends up being spilt anyway!
acer54 replied to acer54's topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)Went the Porsche stealership in the end, had new battery fiitted and coded, (2 year warranty) they also did the usual healthcheck on video and supplied the written version. They also did an old recall item, rubber bush on the gear selector cable and finally full valet done. Cost me £400! The Porsche dealership experience is very polished and slick however would I go back? The jury is still out at the moment lol
acer54 replied to acer54's topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)Job done, after carefully prying them apart on the donor & recipient mats fitted them without issues after making the holes a little bit bigger in the new mats. As always thanks for the info.
I bought a used set of Porsche overmats for my 2005 Cayenne (donor car was a 2009) the mats fit perfectly but the fixing clip holes are smaller so I cannot fasten them down, can these be easily swapped so the new mats can be used?
What is the correct battery for my 2005 Cayenne 3.2 V6, mine is getting on and I would like to replace it before the Winter.

I don't know if I'm using the right forum but I want to replace my black roof rails on my 2005 Cayenne (Corrosion lifting the black off). I would prefer black but silver will be ok as well as I will just get them powder coated.
acer54 posted a topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)When locking my 2005 Cayenne the led for the alarm status is saying there is a fault in the system (It flashes rapidly for 2 seconds, stays lit for 28 seconds and then flashes slowly) the manual says this indicates a fault in the system, can anybody point me in the right direction as to pinpoint where the problem or issue might be?
PCM coded and now camera working - result!
My 3.2 V6 is always a bit lumpy when cold but once it's warmed up it goes like a rocket, any ideas as to what could be causing it?
I'm told from other sources that the pcm will need coding for the camera to work, it's in on the 21st May for other work so I'll have it looked at then.
Update. The PCM was changed before my ownership for a second hand one, does it need coding for the reverse camera to work?
According to the build sheet for my Cayenne it was fitted with a factory reversing camera, cut a long story short it doesn't work and I cannot see any evidence that its trying to work. Where are these factory fitted cameras located? The only place I can see it might be is under a flap just below the tailgate glass hatch lifting mechanism, am I right? I've never seen one of these camera's on all the Cayennes I've looked at, I assume it should show the image on the PCM screen but as I've said absolutely nothing is seen there.
I'm a little surprised that both front and rear have both failed and not working - is their a common denominator?
Both my front and rear parking sensors are not working, I get an audible warning when selecting drive or reverse and the two red leds are showing on the display panels (they go off above 10mph). Diagnostics shows all sensors front and rear to be bad, is this possible or is it something else? Before I buy 12 new sensors hopefully I will be pointed in the right direction.
Thanks, it's in for some work on the 8th April, I'll have it checked then.
