I would not use a 10A fuse on that circuit! The engineers designed it with 5A fuse. You have an intermittent B+ short to ground that needs to be traced and fixed ASAP. Now that you have over fused the circuit the next time the short happens you will fry the loom!
Neoplanet, Anshu, JFP is 100% correct. I have attached drive cycle documentation so you can wrap your head around it better. The key to remember, that all criteria must be met before all the monitors will run. IE: The gas tank must be a least 1/4 tank full and no more then 3/4 full. Also do not exceed 3,000 RPM or 60 MPH during any portion of the drive cycle! Once you have completed the first drive cycle the vehicle must cool down until its stone cold before you can start the second drive cycle. As for your fuse issue I would check the switch side of the relay for short to ground. IE: Pitched wire, Chafed wire, loose wire. Check the relay too! I would also check to see how many amps the SAI is pulling and see if its within specs. Hope this helps.
binger started following Codes P0410 and P1141 revisited, Porsche Cayenne 2006 Base 3.4L Secondary Air Monitor not ready, MAF Connector and and 6 others
There is more criteria that must be met before all the monitors will run. The gas tank must be a least 1/4 tank full and no more then 3/4 full for monitors to run. You must also run a minimum of 2 drive cycles to run and set all monitors from a cold motor. Trying to run2 drive cycles on the same day will not work for the DIYers.
I found one more source. scroll down the page and look for 1-to-6 Way Weather-Proof Multi-Connector Kits http://www.eagleday.com/ampconnectors.html
This website should have what your looking for. Just match your plug and pin out. https://www.bmotorsports.com/shop/advanced_search_result.php?x=0&y=0&search_in_description=1&keywords=porsche
Please pull the rubber boot and look for other part numbers. You might have to remove the plug and look at the other side too. Also take a picture of the pin out of the female side.
Can you please post a picture of the plug that include all the number? I might be able to come up with a source.
binger replied to BRP's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Its a simple formula. Divide the odometer mileage by the operating hours you will have an average MPH. Example: 12,000 Miles / 917 Operating Hours = 13 MPH Most cars will average between 30 - 50 MPH depending on how much traffic it is driven in so the value of 13 MPH indicates there could be a discrepancy.
binger replied to jcashen's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)+2. I have a diagnostic business and own both PIWIS 1, PIWIS 2 and Durmetric scan tools.Nothing wrong with Durmetric as "JFP said it's a excellent tool"! If you want to work on automobiles you will need a PC running windows. All the OEMs use windows based software. Macs wont cut it that's the reality.
That's not a proper diagnoses. AOS needs to connected a digital manometer in place of your oil cap and measure the vacuum in the engine case; on cold start it should vary between 4-7 inches of water, but when warmed up should read 5 inches. There is no way to visually diagnoses this system. Hope you did not pay them for that!
To properly diagnose this issue you will need a Manometer to read the vacuum signal in inches of water. As JFP said it should not be more than 5 inches of water for the AOS to pass. http://www.dwyer-inst.com/Product/Pressure/Manometers/Digital/Series476A-478A this is the one you need SERIES 476A Single Pressure.
Mia, We need some more info. Did the car battery die? You claim both keys are not recognized. Do you have this message on the cluster? If this is the case both keys will need to be reprogrammed in to the immobilizer system by a PIWIS tool.
What tool are you using to program?
