Sunnykent started following Cayenne V6 3.2 2004 Waterpump, Never ending issues - now knocking at rear and rubbing on turning left!, Air Suspension Fault message and and 1 other
Ok update : drop links on rear sway bar - right hand side much worse than left Local VW dealer ( as Porsche dealership over three hours away) diagnosed and showed me how lose they were and even more oddly will be using Meyle parts as not able to get hold of VW/Porsche parts in time strange things happen in Portugal but at least it wasn’t too serious and expensive lol
Just popped out for a meal to get a new issue with my Cayenne occasional hard knocks in rear like I’ve had a stone hit the car underneath and when I turn left I get a rubbing sound - comes from underneath the car like directly underneath drivers seat (UK Right hand drive) what the hell could this be now???
It doesn’t make sense cause when I first start the car I get voltage signals on those pins and can even see that in the diagnostic software - but give it anything from 30 seconds to 5 minutes it all of a sudden loses the voltages and goes to zero and the error comes up wjy on earth would it initially all be good and then for no apparent reason lose the power supply? Without the car even moving!! the ONLY thing that’s really changed is the weather temperature as here in portugal it’s easily 35 degrees each day whereas back in UK we’re lucky to get 20 degrees lol
So plugged in VCDS and got a bit more info P00147 Supply Voltage for Acceleration Sensor Front Left / Rear Right 006 - short to Plus So where exactly is the ‘short’ I should be looking for and checking grounding?? anyone know?
Hi and thanks for your input and diagrams - I really appreciate it. sadly I just fathom this out 😞 ive checked under the passenger seat and find no brown earthing cable and certainly not a PDCC Control unit. I have the main battery and some fuses i checked the fuses and even put new ones in just in case and nada im kinda guessing the Level Control Unit that sits in the boot near the CD player controls the Body Acceleration Sensors ?? I could be wrong but my 2004 V6 3.2 doesn’t have PDCC - no button on the switches near the auto stick and as regards checking grounds I’m not sure which ones to check and where its frustrating and I just don’t know enough about this car 😞
I’m not sure my 2004 3.2 V6 has PDCC?? I have air suspension but don’t see a PDCC button on the gear switches area???
Awesome ill give this ago as regards battery I’m getting 14v continuously so can’t see it being battery related - but who knows these days lol
If anyone ever wants the workshop details on this fee free to look at attached safari.pdf
So taken the Cayenne in nice long drive to Portugal and then on the last stretch get this message pop up Air Suspension Faulty Visit Workshop ive plugged in my iCarsoft POR V2 and I get the following: 0147 Power Supply for body wheel acceleration sensor FL 0139 Body acceleration sensor FL 0141 Body acceleration sensor Rear 0140 body acceleration sensor FR 0003 Control Unit Faulty ive cleared the faults and was able to see voltages of around 2.40v for these sensors then all of a sudden they lose all power get 0v and the Air Suspension fault comes back. this happens even if I don’t drive anywhere - just wait and eventually the sensors lose power and I get the error anyone had any experience of this and what on earth it could be??
YEP I agree so drained that red stuff out. Wasn’t able to get more Porsche so went with Castrol 75w90 Fully Synthetic Long Life Syntrax oil - recommended on various sites as an alternative to Porsche and I can confirm it’s the same colour as Porsche All done and I can sleep at night now 🙂
SO - Porsche advised each diff needed 0.9 Ltr of oil so got myself 2 Ltr of Porsche Diff Oil and took to my local garage to get the oils changed in my 2004 Cayenne V6. Drained the back one and filled with 1.4 Ltrs of the oil. All good. BUT WAIT!! That means I only have 0.6 Ltrs left for the front diff! And guess what at least 0.8Ltr drained out the front so I won't have enough Porsche Oil 😞 So the garage said its just 75w90 gear oil and that they had some they'd use on the front. problem is it was RED oil and Porsche was yellow. So we couldn't mix the oils - instead they put in the full 0.9 Ltr of the RED non Porsche oil. NOW - I'm kinda freaking - IS that RED oil OK to use as it is 75w90 gear oil or should I get it out ASAP and replace?? Ive attached a photo so you can see what the oil the garage used is Please someone put my mind at rest 🙂
Hi all can anyone point me to where I’d find instructions on the water-pump replacement in a 2004 V6 3.2 please? can only seem to find the V8 instructions
