  1. Well an update on the problems. It all went away for a few weeks with a new battery or so I thought: I booked the car into my local Porsche Centre for a new key (£270, ouch!). Anyway on the way there the gremlin returned so I asked them to look at it. The diagnosis: rear screen wash hose split, screenweash in the main vehicle ECU, corroded pins and loom. Budget figure to fix £3,000. I told them to put the parts back together and I would look at it. Collected car, no headlights. My wife used it the next day and the parking barke stuck on. I went to rescue her, the manual release cable was not connected, easily seen through the fuse board cover. Fixed that and got her home. So I decided to remove the "A" pillar cover, one screw behind the airbag emblem. Lo and behold a joint in the screenwash hose had come apart, pushed it back together, wrapped some electrical tape over it for safety- five minutes work. Next a look at the ECU, sure some corrosion of the switch loom pins, three mising and two so corroeded they broke away. An hour with a solder iron and she's all fixed. Cost: 3 hours work maximum and some solder and wire. So, bearing in mind its a £10,000 car, should my Porsche garage A). have fixed the washer pipe, B). Offered me the fix I did? Not very happy !
  2. Just went to start the 2004 V8 S today and: Reverse lights on all the time, bonnet warning light on, no wipers. GRaphic in display showed yellow car silhouette and a red warning arrow. Seems like it may be expensive! Tried to cure by disconnecting the battery under the passenger seat, and managed to break the plastic runner cover as I foolded it back ... All power went off, (so no battery in boot), left it for ten minutes, re- connected and still the same. Anyone got any bright ideas ? Many thanks in advance.
