  1. There is a fuse that controls both the SAI relays. Check out fuse F12 (5 amp) in the engine bay fuse box.
  2. Hold the odometer reset button on while turning on the key (you don't need to start the engine). The display will say Service Reset. Press the Reset button on the windshield wiper stalk. Reset complete!!!
  3. The transmission switching to 1st with PSM on and holding the low gears is normal when temps are cold on initial start. This is by design In order to rev the engine higher to warm the catalytic converters for efficient operation.
  4. Would be a good time to change out the plastic coolant tees to metal ones since you have access with the engine out.
  5. If your car has KESSY and a flat main battery, using the plastic dummy key will not start the vehicle. You must remove the plastic dummy key and use the fob with the metal key to start the car. With the metal key inserted the system will use the rear battery for starter operation.
  6. What is the purpose of the steering lock feature? Apart for theft protection, does it serve another role? What fault / conditions does the steering module monitor that will lockout the steering?
  7. I had both fuel pumps, fuel regulator and filter replaced as part of my preventative maintenance schedule at 170,000 km. The idle dip is still there. Replaced the engine mounts and transmission mount which removed the chassis shudder that was felt when the idle dipped.
  8. So was the damaged flex disk changed when you had the shaft replaced recently?
  9. Low viscosity oil 0w-40 can produce knock. Changing to a higher viscosity oil can quiet things down. Piston slap and cylinder wall scoring can cause the knock and is what you have been reading about. For peace of mind you can get the cylinder borescoped to confirm no cylinder wall damage. If the Turbo cars your considering have high mileage, there's a minimal chance that you would have cylinder wall issues.
  10. Your stock 2009 Turbo S is advertised as doing 0-62mph (100 km/h) in 4.8secs. Anything slower means engine not running at optimum.
  11. Alignment of the shaft is critical. There is a specific alignment tool that is used to install the bearing carrier assembly.
  12. Just to tempt you for Christmas Ciaka. http://www.driveshaftshop.com/import-driveshafts/porsche/porsche-2003-2008-cayenne-v8-aluminum-3-25-carbon-fiber-shaft-will-fit-all-v8-models
  13. There is a battery post In the engine compartment under a red cap. It is used for jump starting a dead battery, its described in the owners manual if needed. You can do your measurement from there.
  14. You can order the flex disk. Part number is 95542101000. Porsche no longer supply them but ecs tuning does. https://www.ecstuning.com/Search/SiteSearch/95542101000/
  15. Yes, check for blown fuses, reseat the fuses if not blown. Do the battery voltage check also.
  16. Check these fuses in the engine mounted fuse box. Fuses F7 (20A), F8 (20A) are for the Fuel injectors and ignition coils. Fuses F17 (15A), F18 (7.5A) are for the O2 sensors. You should also check your battery voltage with ignition off and then with engine running.
  17. Relay is L3 located on the left relay module as per my previous post June 4 2015. Alternatively and easier would be to pull the 40 amp compressor fuse F13 located on the fuse panel, above the main battery, under the left front seat.
  18. Toggle the "central locking" button on your armrest to unlock. That should unlock the rear lid allowing it to be opened from the outside, without you getting out of your seat.
  19. The door button does not open the rear window, it unlocks the rear lid only.Refer to page 176-177 of the owners manual.
