Is anybody know how to set the date in PCM 2.1 (2008 Cayenne S)? The date display is not showing up anymore on the main display (blank). This is happened after replacing the main battery. I can set the time without issue but can't seem to find the menu to set the date (apart from selecting the date format).
Yes, the blower is bad. If you leave it too long like this, it may damage the regulator as well.
Sand8 replied to Pxwguad's topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)It is the blower motor. I just replaced one of those and it is not difficult to do. The resistor/regulator can be overloaded if the blower motor is defective. You can buy one from eBay at reasonable price. Don't know how long it will last but, it is worth it instead of paying $500 from Porsche.
Thank you HIPcar! appreciated!
Hi, Is anybody know where the location of the fresh/recirculation air flapper motor in 2008 Cayenne S? Also, if you have the part number for the motor (or servo) handy. Thanks for the help, Sinclair
It may be the rear seatbelt cover. Mine was fixed by taping the endges with fiberglass tape.
Sand8 replied to GeraldC48's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Would a partially clogged oil filter cause the high oil pressure? I don't know if the location of oil pump or oil pressure sensor with respect to the oil filter, is it before or after oil filter?
Since you said the problem started after front bumper replacement, why not try to reinsert both headlight assembly? It may just be a bad contact, hopefully.
Sand8 replied to MikeA's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Yes, it is above the third radiator in my car. Loren, Do you need to install relay for using the airhorn? Or, you use the original wiring (with the origianl 25A fuse)? Thanks, Sinclair
Sand8 replied to geoff's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Question: the "rise" brake light is the one on the spoiler? This brake light only active (on) when the spoiler is up, and when the spoiler is up, the "fixed" 3rd brake light is not active (off), correct? Thanks.
I guess this is true if the engine RPM is low (low exhaust gas flow). Depending on how fast the exhaust gas excavated from that junction, in higher RPM, this "venturi" effect may create a problem (bottle neck). I would guess the X51 header is designed to improve the top end performance. The low end performance may be compromised. Thanks, Sinclair
Yes.... I have an '08 C2 with the sport chrono package plus and was able to activate DRL's through the PCM. Also, I was able to activate the automatic door locking system. Great that Porsche put this in our hands. Harvey in Md I have a 2007 C4S with sport chrono and NAV and I can set the DRLs in the PCM screen. One note! The car has to be "On" (but not necessarily running). I tried to do it with the key in the ignition, and couldn't do it. Tried again in "on" position and could get to the screen. I think you get to it by going to "MAIN" and then hitting "SET" and dialing to the "Indiv Mem" option from there. If you have the menu but is not selectable (grayed out), what Harvey mentioned above is correct. You need to have the ignition in ON position in order for the menu to be selectable. If the menu missing completely (for car with sport chrono), the dealer should be able to configure it.
Sand8 replied to 355bhp's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)I think most Porsche drivers find it easier to roll their right foot, with the left side on the brake, and right side on the accelerator. I'm getting used to the ball-pinky-toe technique, and I can rest my heel on the floor during the process (the advantage of big feet!). Like 70Sixter, control of the throttle input is still a bit ragged, but I'm getting better at it. And it's lotsa fun too! Easier to do it when in sport mode.
