I tried that thanks. It does reset it but still powers up randomly.
Sorry. I knew I forgot something. It's a 2004 Cayenne S.
Two current problems on car. (1) When turning on headlights, I get "Check Headlight beam Adjustment" error. But All headlight functions are normal. (2) Radio doesn't work at first. After long drive, Porsche logo comes out, cycles then shows error while loading. After it does this, If i turn off car and then back on, radio's back to normal. Batteries are about 4years old. Decided to replace both batteries but problems remain. Scanned Electrical system with Durametric. Here are the codes: 968-Right direction indicator light-Upper limit value exceeded. 1498-Parking light right-Open circuit/short circuit to B+. 1499-Right full beam-Open circuit/short circuit to B+. 70-Starter battery voltage (second battery)-Implausible signal. 668-Vehicle voltage terminal 30-Implausible signal. 466-Steering column switch (with electronic unit)-No signal/communication. 907-Low management operat. On vehicle electrical sys./DME control module-No additional fault status available. 1299-Gateway-Please read out fault memory. 2087-Corner sensitive headlight right-Open circuit/short circuit to B+. 1520-Rain sensor/light sensor-Implausible signal. 2197-Potentiometer for footwell lights-Implausible signal. 2196-Terminal 30 fuse for vehicle electrical system control module-Upper limit value exceeded. Checked a bunch of stuff, headlight wires, battery terminals, etc. All looked ok. Any other ideas?
gt2rs replied to Cayenne17's topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)do they break ? like broken? whoops? Haven't you had to replace a plastic bolt cover yet? They are frequently dislodged at car washes, etc. I replaced mine 6 months ago. Once they come off the first time, they seem to come off easier and easier until finally they can't hold any longer. Fortunately they are cheap, although when you buy a new one they sell you the entire button assembly for the rear hatch. What is the part number for this plastic cover and how much did you pay for it? I just lost mine. Thanks!
Not hard at all. You just need to remove a few things. First pop off the top front cover of the engine . This allows for you to access and remove the plastic joint for the intake/intake manifold. With that piece removed you now have acces on the automatic belt tensioner which has a bolt on top end of it (See#18 below). With a breaker bar and socket that fits in to that bolt (i can't recall the size), you can relieve tension on the serpentine belt by pressing towards a clockwise direction. Take the belt out and guide the new one in. I hope that helps!
gt2rs replied to parajed's topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)Had this problem... Here's my post: http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=19174
At lease you guys still have some sort of map to follow. The 04 CS i bought a few months ago didn't even have the CD for the NAV system which made it totally useless. Apperently the previous owner lost it somehow. Anybody would like to give me a copy of the east coast CD then that would be awesome. Thanks!
Got my car back and no more annoying noise. Like stated throughout this thread its a defective water pump. Here's exactly what was replaced: Water Pump: 948-106-011-04 Steel Gasket: 948-106-115-03 Antifreeze: 000-043-301-05 I asked the Advisor if the pump was an updated version but really didn't get a specific answer for this part. He just said that whatever latest version provided by the manufacturer is what they install in service.
2004 Cayenne S with 38,000 miles. When i get it back on monday i will ask if it's updated.
I was also told the same. I won't get mine back till monday though. The dealership didn't realize that they didn't have the gasket in-stock until they took my car in. So now i'm driving around with Subaru Tribeca loaner for the weekend!
I called 3 dealerships and was quoted between $700-$800 parts/labor. Scheduled it for thursday.
I have the exact same issue - from what I have read there is a water pump behind that pulley and they are known to go bad in the 04' Will be taking mine to the dealer soon... JR Thanks for your reply. Did you get a quote on how much this job will be?
Another pic of the engine. Again i'm referring to the top most pulley near the intake manifold:
First of all i've only had this car for about a month so i'm still familiarizing myself with its characteristics. I'm not sure if this is normal or not but the sound i hear is not metallic but more like plastic "clack clack" sound. From the inside the car you won't hear it. But it's noticeable if you are in front of the car with the hood open. I've looked all over the engine and I'm pretty sure that it's coming from this pulley "#17" from the pic below. It seems to be a free spinning pulley. The pulley assembly has a very very slight play on it of about 1mm although the 3 screws holding it are very tight. Then, i proceeded to remove the pulley and it itself is fine. Now i'm wondering if i could remove the base where the pulley mounts to check its rotor. It looks to be attached to the engine with about 12-15 8mm star bolts. Anybody know if it's ok to remove this and if i do remove it, what torque specs i need to use to put it back on?
