  1. 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).
  2. Yes, the blower is bad. If you leave it too long like this, it may damage the regulator as well.
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. It may be the rear seatbelt cover. Mine was fixed by taping the endges with fiberglass tape.
  6. 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?
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. Thank you Loren. I am just surprise that the dealer charged me $102 for it.
  12. Hi, Is anybody know if the part number 997-571-219-00 is for 997 Cabin Air Filter? Many thanks, Sinclair
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. David, I am putting a manual switch to able/disable the PSE from center console. Actually, I got it done yesterday and it is nice to be able to control the PSE at will. It just a bit more work initially. Specially, finding the correct wire in a bundle of wires that are going into ECU. I used the lighted switch when active and intersting to see how when the Sport button is on (PSE activated), the light went on randomly between 2000-4000rpm. Both on the rev up and down. Sometime, it came on (blinking fast) when the rev down only....very interesting. Of course, when I switched it off, the PSE always on, regardless of the Sport button setting. Thanks, Sinclair
  16. PTEC, Loren, Thanks. I got it. Remove the sub port face plate on both side and the T30 screw can be seen. So I guess this is the same setup as in 996, as you said. Now, I need to find the wire that going into my PSE solenoid to gain control of the PSE manually. Thanks again, Sinclair
  17. PTEC, Are you referring to the sound port on top of the sub (they are two cutting above the sub behind each rear seat that is not quite completely removable) or, the sound ports that have "Bose" written on them, left and right side? Thanks again, Sinclair
  18. Hi, I have 997 C4S with Bose option. I am trying to gain access under the Bose sub on the back seat. Is anybody know how to remove this Bose sub part? It seem like a special tool is required. Thanks for the help, Sinclair
