  1. Did you check the drive shaft bearing? When the rubber mount lets go it makes a thunk sound as the power comes on and off and can make a roar noise when the bearing itself is failing.
  2. From VW diag which shares Porsche codes. P1749 18157 Transmission Control Unit Incorrect Coded Probably a glitch as Loren suggested.
  3. If you have done 90k km or multiples of the the cardon shaft bearing need replacing before it costs you a whole shaft. Easy to check, get a small wreaking bar and move the shaft up and down, if you see cracks in the rubber around the bearing then replace it now!
  4. Thanks for posting the update, so important for the future when we are trying to track down faults 👍
  5. Looking ahead I wanted to buy front brake pads but for some reason I keep getting offered pads for the 355mm disks and not the 380mm disks. I even went through part supplier catalogues showing them that 19" wheels wouldn't even fit over my disks. No dealer for a thousand miles and they would want crazy prices anyway. Anybody know what compound I should use and where to find them without feeling I am paying extra just for the brand of vehicle?
  6. Because the have a galvanised body in high humidity environments or ingress of water it can set up on a dissimilar metal like fuses, earths ect. Common when the car hasn't been used in a while and the air inside is not being changed out. Check your fuses on side of the dash by pulling them, check and put back in, quite often things come to life. Check earth bonds, there are lots of them. Also this galvanic action can get into the wiring if the insulation is cracked. Good luck!
  7. As I said, check the fuses. The Cayenne has a Galv body and any moisture around causes electrolysis, fuses ect being copper based will form an oxide. Nice idea Porsche but hell on the electrics!
  8. There is a brown wire under the passengers seat from PDCC control unit terminal 31 to ground, check. RH fuse box on dash, Fuse 44 (5A) & 27 (15A) may need to be reseated, pull out and push them back in after inspection.
  9. I own that model with 90km. Just about to replace the driveshaft bearing. They are very good as long as you keep the maintenance up, oil changes, transmission as well. They say the better engine which I have has less issues because the the cylinders are Structurally Honed. Not much data on this model, not many around as the cost 2.5 times the base model. Does the engine look like mine, 9PAAN1 ?
  10. There can be two supplies if you have a battery under the spare wheel but if you have only one battery it splits off to supply the electrics and the starting circuit. Follow the + line under the seat and you will find fuses and the line to the power relay. Check where the power stops, could be a fuse or a starting relay problem.
  11. Follow the + wire from the battery under the seat till you find the 250 Amp fuses, there are 2 and this is the supply to the right hand fuse box.
  12. Not sure what model, 955 or 957. If you have secondary battery under the spare wheel it may be flat?
