  1. It works just fine for everything else 2004 and also has 2005 data.. I checked. I can reset my service, run diagnostics, see all the ODB codes, etc. Has anyone ever run into this problem before. It's OK to say "I have no idea"... just looking to see if anyone has every had to diagnose this problem and what steps to take.
  2. I don't have access to a PIWIS. Is there really no way to diagnose this with a PST2? Going to the dealer is not an option I'm willing to undertake. Our local dealership is the worst.
  3. I stated above that I have access to a PST2 (predecessor to the PIWIS), will that not work? The PST2 is updated to 2005. My CTT is a 2004.
  4. Sounds like a mullet... LOL. Anyway.. A/C is blowing ice cold up front, hot out of the back seat console, both vents and both rear pillars. Yes I checked the front/back temp settings and I am now running it with back off and just the front set to normal and its fine. I'm in St. Petersburg, FL so its still hot here. What should I look for? DIY or see my mechanic? I do have access to a PST2, just have not had an opportunity to hook it up yet. Just wondering if anyone knows right off the top of their head or what order to start diagnostics... Thanks in advance! Andrew
  5. No recent tire change and plenty of tread... I just had it doing it pretty band and it was even rough driving going straight. I turn the PSM off and no issue.
  6. PSM light is showing on very mild/slow turns, both in right and left directions. It causes a weird driving condition when its flickering, loss of power, feels like sputtering. All seems fine if if I turn PSM off. Any suggestions? Is this a bad sensor(s)? If so, where is it? I had a a P2189 Lean Bank 2 at Idle, and I replaced the MAF, checked the fuel pumps (all good) and (mechanic) smoked the system. Found leak when smoked cold at a variable timing cam gasket (replaced). No leak now except tiny amount from left turbo. That code seems gone now and nothing else seems to be relevant to PSM.
  7. So here we are.. I replaced the transfer case control module to the newer version (PorschePartsHub.com 369.33 shipped) an easy DIY. You do have to remove the passenger seat to get a the front screw that holds it in. 90% of the problem seemed to disappear. The thumps became infrequent and less harsh, but still remained. So I went with replacing the motor. I had my mechanic do it because I was having health issues and it ran me 439.64 for the motor from World Pac and the normal labor charge... The thump is still there. Any other ideas?
  8. Thank you for responding! Yeah, if you read this below from the Suncoast site it says the motor is overheating after long distances... my thump is happening cold and not going away or getting worse with miles driven so I would agree the motor is not at issue... When are you planning on doing this? I definitely am interested if your noise goes away and was the same.. from cold on... PTM Transfer Gear Servo Motor Update Display in instrument cluster: "All-wheel drive system defective" - For fault code 2033, 2039, 2041, or 2042 in transfer gear control unit. When the transfer unit is diagnosed as being defective, this parts kit updates to the latest version as recommended by Porsche in a technical service manual. In effected vehicles, the servo motor overheats while in "Low Range" driving program after driving long distances due to a fault in the transfer gear control unit. To complete this update, a new control unit for the center differential lock and new servo motor are required. This upgrade is for 2003 to 2009 Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne GTS, Cayenne Turbo, and Cayenne Turbo S models.
  9. From a slow (typical) start from a light or other stop the '04 Cayenne in a few feet (1-2 car lengths) I get a loud thump from the undercarriage. This is the only time it does it. Nothing is obvious underneath.. Any ideas?
  10. Basically all of the plastic lines on the inside of your engine compartment exposed to heat will crack at some point so when you see them, replace them. As for when the coolant pipes go you can count on that coolant having dripped into your starter and run down the back to the transmission main seal. You will be replacing both in the next year unless you got all the coolant out of those at the time of pipe replacement. Your cadran shaft will go so when you drop the tranny, might want to look at that. When it fails its like a hammer to the chest around 70mph.. scary.. feels like the tranny has fallen out and it will keep doing this on hard accelerations.. makes you think its a tranny mount, but its the shaft.. Your battery under your driver's seat will go at some point.. the horn maybe.. the back of a seat may pop off.. good luck gluing the parts back on.. a couple of hooks at the base will break on you.
  11. I got one of these and it worked... http://www.ebay.com/itm/OBD-Porsche-Piwis-Cable-OBD2-Diagnostic-tools-OBDII-/190872625453?pt=Motors_Automotive_Tools&hash=item2c70e5212d&vxp=mtr I believe its a Durametric knock-off..
  12. I have Porsche OEM 20" Sport Techno rims that are black powder-coated with 275/40 ZR 20" tires on my 2004 Cayenne Turbo with no problems at all.. 45 is taller, but there is room around mine so I doubt it would be an issue... Porsche does have an official guide.. http://www.porsche.com/usa/accessoriesandservices/porscheservice/documentsanddownloads/
  13. Mobil 1 is undoubtedly good oil, but with Mobil 1 I used to have to add a quart every two to three gas fill-ups. I've been using Liqui-Moly 0w-40 (which aint cheap) for a couple years now and now I might add a quart between oil changes. The oil doesn't burn and there is no noticeable additional engine wear or heat buildup. It might actually run cooler. Keeping oil in the car is priority no matter who you are or where you drive. I'm in Florida and it's nice to have the protection in place rather than have it burning out part the rings or wherever Mobil 1 evaporates off to. I'm in Florida and I can highly recommend it.
  14. Actually - yes, you're wrong. They never put the aluminum pipes in, and even the ones made today use a resin based pipe system (supposedly a much better and less prone to exploding design.) The aluminum pipe setup was only sold as replacement parts. The class action is for 2003-2006 V8 Cayennes (S and Turbo.) Well that sucks... I would not trust that at all. I would insist on that "upgrade" be done before buying one again.. As for UK and Euro, I would think that since this was a case with PCNA the outcome would only apply to North America.. unfortunately. Apparently we'll only get between $100-$1800 dollars.. I'm out $3,916.04 between the pipes, starter and transmission seal that the coolant destroyed. Here is the latest...http://www.topclassactions.com/lawsuit-settlements/lawsuit-news/4602-porsche-cayenne-owners-offered-45m-class-action-settlement?utm_source=Infusionsoft&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Top+Class+Actions+Newsletter+080513&inf_contact_key=3c6f3651e0feff86f027b2f1321567d2015dcdd87ca49a9d06358258f899003a# Class Action Lawsuit and Settlement News Porsche Cayenne Owners Offered $45M Class Action Settlement Porsche Cayenne Owners Offered $45M Class Action Settlement By Mike Holter Porsche Cars North America Inc. has agreed to pay up to $45 million to reimburse Porsche Cayenne owners for coolant pipe repairs as part of a class action settlement agreement filed with the court last week.The Porsche Cayenne settlement will resolve a nearly two-year long legal battle over claims that Porsche knowingly installed faulty plastic cooling tubes in its model year 2003 to 2006 Cayenne vehicles that prematurely degrade and fracture, causing damage to the engine. Plaintiffs in the class action lawsuit claimed that instead of replacing the defective plastic coolant tubes, Porsche instead offered an “update kit” that contained aluminum coolant pipes that cost owners between $1,500 and $3,600 per vehicle. A total of eight consumer class action lawsuits were filed by Porsche Cayenne owners starting in January 2011. The cases were consolidated into an MDL called In re: Porsche Cars North America Inc., Plastic Coolant Tubes Products Liability Litigation.Porsche denies any wrongdoing in agreeing to the class action lawsuit settlement, saying it only agreed to settle “after nearly two years of hard-fought litigation,” adding that “ongoing litigation would involve expensive and prolonged discovery, much of which would require travel to Germany [where Porsche is based] and translating documents from German to English."The car company continues to maintain that the allegations raised in the class action lawsuit don’t have merit because the plaintiffs only experienced problems with their vehicles after the warranties expired.The proposed Porsche Cayenne class action settlement will cover 42,000 current and former U.S. owners of a 2003 to 2006 Porsche Cayenne vehicle with a V8 engine made between January 28, 2002 and December 5, 2006. Class Members will receive between $100 and $1,800 for past and future coolant pipe repairs as part of a claims filing process. The payment amount will be based on whether they are claiming a past or future repair payment, as well as a percentage of the invoice price paid based on the mileage at the time of repair or replacement. Plaintiffs in the Porsche Cayenne class action settlement asked the court to conditionally certify the Class for settlement purposes, in addition to approving the proposed settlement.Top Class Actions will continue to provide updates to the Porsche Cayenne cooling tube settlement, including how to file a claim for reimbursement.

  15. Should apply to anyone effected... This likely only covers all 2003-2004 and some 2005 Cayennes as I believe they may have started putting in the aluminum replacements in somewhere in 2005? I may be wrong.. basically if yours came with plastic coolant pipes you're covered.
  16. just got this email... Thanks for contacting us about the Porsche Class Action. The parties have reached a preliminary settlement and have filed a motion asking the court to approve its terms on a preliminary basis. Assuming the court gives preliminary approval to the settlement, the parties will then send notice of the settlement, including an explanation of the settlement terms, to the class members. This notice will also provide a description of your options, going forward. At this time we are still collecting information from Cayenne owners about their experiences and costs related to the coolant pipe problems. If you could, please provide us with the following information: Owner’s Name: Address: Email: Phone number: Year/Model: Retailer where you purchased your Cayenne: Do you have the original purchase documents?: Mileage at time of purchase: Mileage now: Have the pipes failed?: Have they been replaced?: Cost of replacement?: Any other parts replaced and their cost?: Mileage at time of failure/replacement: Do you have all of the repair/replacement invoices and receipts?: Very truly yours, Peter T.

  18. All you great mechanics and experts out there I need help... I pulled into the driveway and everything was fine. Went to go somewhere the next day, engine starts fine, moved shifter into reverse to back out and no shift, still in park.. try drive, no drive, try manual/tiptronic no love.. wtf?? The shifter seems to move lighter than before could something in there have broken? I'm thinking if I can't fix I need a mechanic to come to me. Without neutral we can't tow right? .... *sigh* Last thing I need right now is a big bill.. any help/advice/thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance! - Andrew
  19. I use RPM Performance on Tyrone Blvd in St Petersburg. It is family owned. Tell Alois that Andrew sent you if you decide to go. Alois is very honest, reasonable and a very good mechanic. He has the proper equipment as well. His family even speaks German so they can talk in the tongue of your car. LOL. I use him for both of my cars, the CTT 04 and 96 Camaro SS. I have to have the Cardan replaced as well. Does yours make a thumping sound under the console when accelerating (under torque)?
  20. So this 2005 wouldn't fit eh? http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=250650120370&viewitem=&sspagename=ADME%3AB%3ASS%3AUS%3A1123
  21. Some *** misthreaded the oil pan plug and we've tried all sorts of washers/rethreading.. need a new oil pan I think.. 2004 Cayenne Twin Turbo.. Thanks in advance! - Andrew
  22. <br /><br /><br />I have no problem paying the dealer to do the update, if it is a legit deal. Just another $80 on top of the near 400, is starting to push into buying a Garmin portable Nav unit!<br /><br /><br /><br /> I did it myself.. went smooth. Keep engine running and wait. I don't advocate finding someone with the CDs willing to burn you a copy, but I understand that it is possible. I can understand what might drive a 2004 owner to do something like that though considering the fair options Porsche gave us.
