This has been a pretty well covered topic. Try a search of it on the forum you’ll find quite a bit of detail. Best,
Had the same symptoms and sound on my outer CV on my old CTT. replaced CV, noise disappeared until the other side went about 4 months later.
Pkscheldt replied to bmbratz's topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)Steering Rack will need to be replaced my friend.... There is a known issue re this. Google: faulty steering rack, cayenne and won't start. I spent thousands chasing this on my first CTT several years ago before it was a more common issue. Best to you.
FYI - The "check is in the mail." I have not received mine yet, but one in our club did yesterday.
Greetings! Haven't been on the 9PA forum in quite some time. I've been told that the settlement payments are finally going to be distributed. I've heard we should have them by 2/8/2016. Has anyone one else gotten this message? Looking to close out the books on the old 2003 CTT. Cheers!
Glad you're back on the road!
We have one in our club and it runs quite nice. We've joked a bit about missing the guys at the local P service dept, because we both used to have original year CTT's (2003) he now has the 957 Turbo and I have the 958 Turbo. I'm not aware of any reason to stay away from the 957. If it has PDCC you will enjoy it even more. Cheers!
Well you have a problem and now you're 99% sure what it is. When this happened to me all we had was "change the batteries." Played around like you have and got really frustrated... But was always appreciative of people taking the time to provide some guidance on this site. 3 years ago no one had experienced this issue on this board. So on top of the expense of the fix and all of the batteries and all the other DIY exercise I went through I also spent over $2K JUST for diagnosis. You really don't have much of a choice. Your 2004CTT is nearly worthless as it sits. Fix it - keep it, fix it - sell it, or part it out - sell it.
Reference post #10 in this chain. I had put together a pretty good bit of research. Here are some of what I dug up when arguing to reduce some of the diagnostic $$$ with the dealer. Best of luck to you. http://www.renntech.org/forums/topic/22113-heeeeelp-steering-fault/ http://www.renntech.org/forums/topic/20983-cayenne-completely-dead-not-battery-issue/ http://www.planet-9.com/cayenne-macan-configurations/92904-09-cayenne-wont-start-not-communicating.html http://www.clubtouareg.com/forums/f43/please-move-steering-wheel-and-pissed-off-77292.html http://www.clubtouareg.com/forums/f43/complete-brain-dead-20188.html
Not fun.... The good news is you can save a ton of diagnostic $$$. That switch in the column sure sounds like it's failing/failed.
I wouldn't drive it that way, I'm guessing it's a stuck open thermostat, but ???? Not a common Cayenne issue I'm aware of. On my M5 I had a stuck open thermostat on the way in to my office with near Identical symptoms and then it became a stuck shut thermostat on the way home and it was a disaster - 7 mile commute.
Sure sounds like a thermostat that is stuck open.
Sounds interesting..... Just know though that you can blink and easily spend 3-4 K on a well maintained 05 CTT let alone one that has sat for 2 years. I say this because I had a well maintained first generation CTT from original purchase for over 10 years. If you can double that and feel comfortable then you'll be fine. Cheers!

One last piece from my end. Here were the notes the Porsche tech left in the invoice: "Vehicle will not start due to a faulty EVL. The vehicle will not start and the steering wheel will not fully unlock. Performed tests of the wiring for the EVL and the ignition module - ok. Checked the connection of the KESSY module, EVL and ignition switch - ok. Back probed the KESSY module and checked the voltage during function of vehicle key. The KESSY is not seeing an unlock signal for the EVL and in turn is keeping terminal 15 off. EVL can not be replaced on its own, quote a steering column for this vehicle." I'd take it in my friend.
