  1. Really! I searched the PCNA TSB's on Renntech.org and could not find any mention of a campaign for the transfer case stepper motor problem. Does anyone know of a campaign for the stepper motor here in NA?
  2. Thanks for the feedback! Good news is - after a week in the shop and a new stepper motor in the transfer case, the problem is gone. Bad news is it took a week to convince the dealer to put a new stepper motor in to fix the problem. They were unsure about what to do until I did some research on the Touareg and found out it's got the same problem. See: http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=1163199 http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=2653188 According to my dealer Porsche has no "campaign" on this extensive problem so they were reluctant to do anything. This was even after a
  3. Anybody know anything about this: '04 Cayenne S with 28k miles - pulses when making turns, especially in reverse and when the steering is fully locked, but only when its hot. It feels like its got huge mud flaps or like it being driven by giant gear cogs. Took it to the local dealer on a hot day. They put it on the rack and wiggled CV joints by hand, nothing felt out of order. After a test drive the mechanic said it was normal Cayenne behaviour, but it feels awful, like its going to seize. And the problem is getting noticeably worse. It shows up on simple turn-in when the car is ful
  4. It was done at no charge and not at my request. It's listed on my invoice as "Recall / scope 1, W401 replaced rear emblem and side trim". All exterior aluminium trim was replaced. As long as I'm listing the service successes, I should also mention that they seem to have updated the transmission shifting parameters while it was in for service, because it's not bogging down like it always did (since it was new). It's shifting much smoother and at a slightly higher revs than before. It could be because everything was reset. I'll wait and see if the adaptive transmission function changes it
  5. Today I got my CS back from the local Porsche shop with a new comfort system central control unit. Comfort settings are now staying in memory even after switching key/remotes. In addition they updated the firmware/software so that now I get 4 horn beeps on lock, 1 beep on unlock. Before it would give me 2 beeps on lock and no beeps on unlock. They also replaced my 2 keys, which actually work farther than 1 meter, the original key range. The new keys reach about 10-20 meters, depending on which side you come from. The new keys and signaling will take a lot of frustration out of using
  6. Have '04 Cayenne S that resets comfort (doorlock) preferences to default every time you use the other key fob. It wll remember the settings as long as you stay with one key, but every time my wife uses her key the settings go back to the defaults. The dealer has gone back and forth for 3 days with Porsche NA with no solution in sight. They (PNA) refuse to try replacing the lock control computer because "it's against procedure". Is it because there is no fix? Anyboby got any ideas?
