  1. I started pulling fuses around the starter relay under the hood and the car came back to life . Not sure exactly which fuse was the problem but none of them were blown. It’s like it just went to sleep and then woke up .
  2. Richard and Phoney, I have an update on my 06 CTTS! I didn't have any luck with the side dash fuses so started pulling fuses in the relay box between the firewall and brake fluid resv. Not sure which fuse woke it up but simply pulling and pushing fuses back in woke it up! I do have a warning light on the dash for the suspension that was not there before, so I will try to clear the code in Durametric and diagnose for other faults. Will keep you posted. Could it be coincidental that my "service now" msg is also on the instrument panel? second update: warning light for the suspension went off as soon as I drove it around the block. Tim in Ft Worth
  3. Thanks Red and Rick! great info and definitely gives me a couple of leads to follow! Got my fingers crossed that it’s the starter relay . In my 06 CTTS it is under the cover between the brake fluid reservoir and the windshield.
  4. Guys has anyone heard failure to replace these lines can cause hard shifting or banging in the transmission?
  5. just wondering if your mechanic did the step-by-step Greg outlined above? Did he do a smoke test on the vacuum lines? I would do both of these before buying any more parts. Tim in Ft Worth
  6. A quick search of this forum showed no sign of any discussion on infant seats. I am a proud new grandpa as of yesterday with a newly purchased 2006 (mfg date 10/06) CTTS as well. So I am interested in what infant seat works well in the back seat of a Cayenne? I'm especially interested in seats that have the plug which disabled the rear airbags. I found the leads under the rear seats which I presume plug into the car seat. Any advice woud be greatly appreciated and if you have one to sell I'd like to hear more about that as well. And I have to say this Turbo S is worth every penny...what a ride!! Tim in Ft Worth
  7. Just reading the letter from Porsche posted above (the #8 post) says all of North America and I have not heard that Canada is no longer part of N.A. so it seems you are included. Tim
  8. Been a while since anyone has mentioned this important extended warranty and I have some new information on my case, so here goes. I finally found the receipt for the coils. It was with some other parts for another project I bought at the same time. Never thought to look in THOSE boxes! So I send the letter and receipt to Porsche a couple of months ago and time goes by so I get antsy. After many phone calls I get a check for the parts but no labor reimbursement. Many more phone calls to the gods explaining I can't find the receipt but that their own letter plainly states that they "may" reimburse what Porsche would charge. Initially they refused. You can read that part of the letter in my post above. It's about two thirds of the way down the page. Then I talk some more and they reconsider but here is the rub. They refuse to pay what Porsche would charge me to do the job. I get a check today for $174.20 They call this a compromise which is not the same as a reimbursement. I have to look at this as better than nothing, which is what I had since 2009 when I bought the coils. Tim in Ft Worth
  9. how did the DIY go, Doohan? Wondering how much you saved by doing it yourself? Any pics to share? Tim in Ft Worth
  10. congrats on your lucky buy, Greg! I hope I am at least half that lucky when mine comes along. Did you have it checked out by a dealer or roll the dice on mechanical condition? I think a Cayenne with that many miles has survived the worst of it and has a long life ahead! Tim in Ft Worth
  11. Thanks for all the replies everyone! The car is listed on cargurus so Doohan may have found the ad but my gut tells me to trust what most folks said back in March and that is take an 04-06 CTT and add $2K in upgrades and you have "S" performance. I wish I could have gotten this one for closer to $20K than $26K but I truly hope he gets his price. That would be a dream come true for him I bet! For me there is no reason to buy this "S" since all the badging has been removed. No bragging rights at that point, right?! Tim in Ft Worth
  12. Hi Guys! What do you think would be a fair current price for a silver 06 Turbo S with 102K miles? Texas car with no obvious issues. I'm still looking to replace my Turbo totaled back in March. Tim in Ft Worth
  13. that is a thought to upgrade for more HP rather than spending the coin on a CTTS. What would I do with $2K to get CTTS horses? Chip it? Which one? Still happen to have their Kansas email address? Could you PM it to me? Tim
  14. Any advice from anyone on how to spot a Cayenne that still needs coolant tubes, driveshaft, and coil packs without seeing the vehicle? Is mileage the best indicator? I have a Durametric Enthusiast. Is there any way to reset it now that my car is gone to wipe the VIN off of it so I can check a car I'm ready to buy? The one I thought was the guy in Kansas with the CTTS turned out to be a black CTT advertised as a Turbo S. Turns out it is a regular Turbo pretty close to Dallas Tx. Tried again to contact them. Tim
  15. Anyone know a good website for buying another CTT? I was hit head-on two weeks ago and just learned my Turbo is toast. I've looked at all the usual sites like Cars.com and Traderonline, but nothing is jumping out. Also, I learned the other guys insurance company can give you credits for "upgrades" so be sure and keep all your receipts always. They gave me credits (real money!!) for stuff I did 5 years ago. Tim in Ft Worth
  16. Please let me know if you have had any experience with VTX pads from Vertex Performance. I bought the Driveshaft fix from them and so am now getting sale ads for these pads among other things. Sale ends tomorrow so please respond as sooon as you can! Tim in Ft Worth
  17. Brit6, what did you do to repair it? Would you happen to have a part # list? Did you do this yourself? Happen to have any pics of the repair? Just wondering how your repair compares with posts from past repairs. Tim in Ft Worth
  18. hey Slaskowski, what hose was cracked at the lower base? Where was it located? And did you order the entire hose assembly from Sunset for that price? My error light came back on last time as soon as I hit boost, so I'm wondering if my problem might be a check valve and not a cracked hose. Does whatever you ordered include new check valves? Tim in Ft Worth
  19. the settlement says you get more if you bought your car from an ACPO warranty dealer. Can anyone enlighten me on why this would be the case? The difference is significant. And has anyone had any luck in small claims court against PCNA for either this or other Cayenne repairs?
  20. I did everything you suggested and the job went very smooth! One air tool that came in handy was a coarse scotch-brite wheel on the air-powered drill chuck. Much faster than a razor blade! Thanks again! Tim in Ft Worth
  21. Just got back from my indy mech who ran the smoke test. Would not have found these leaks otherwise. In addition to the bulkhead leak another was found by way of the smoke test done by the local garage. It seals the entire vacuum system and pumps vapor into an open port. Leaks can't hide from this test! The other leak, much smaller, was the check valve underneath the engine's torque arm. The bulkhead leak was massive and was plugged to discover the other much smaller leak in the check valve. Tim
  22. Hey wrk4it, I am expecting my ESP kit today and will be doing the job this weekend so really happy to read your experience with this. Did you have to remove exhaust hangers? How about jacking the car? Rear only up on jackstands or what did you do? My original shaft was replaced around 70K miles and now I have 140K miles when that one failed. No more original shaft replacements for me! Tim in Ft Worth
  23. Ricky, please follow up with us on which part fixes your screech! Mine has started to make the same noise. Tim in Ft Worth
