  1. I happened to my on my Carrera. In my case was not the mirror glass, but the base corner side pointing to the front that was a bit loose. I noticed when I was washing the car. Check externally your mirror unit moving it sideways and up/down near the base too see if there is base related... If not check Dr. Pepper suggestion... SithPitt
  2. Well that's something that I didn't know, but it's a good thing to know... Mine doesn't have Sirius :thumbup: And BTW thanks for the congrats :jump:
  3. The Transport System [1st pic] goes straight to the roof of the Cayenne and is not compatible with the long roof railings [2nd pic]. My cayenne didn't have any, so I figured that my best choice was the Transport... Your bicycle railing [3rd pic] is an exclusive fit for the long railing and as you can see is like the Transport system which goes side to side... SithPitt
  4. Well you have to check if your radio harness has all cables as same as a Cayenne with PCM [1st thing] CDR-23 has only one black optical cable and PCM has 2 on the rear one for the NAVI DVD and the other the radio antenna [2nd thing] You have to check under passenger seat for NAVI DVD location [3rd]...
  5. Good to know - thank you. Can you provide the part number for the antenna and the cost please Thanks, Simon Ok Simon, here all go: :jump: Pictured below is the GPS OEM antenna... Here's the Volkswagen Part Number [7L5 035 507 A] as seen on the GPS metal base sticker.... Here's the Porsche Part Number [955.647.107.01 or 955 647 107 01] as seen on the box from manufacturer.... I wrote down the numbers because Images, sometimes, are not displayed... I bought this item at www.ecstuning.com for around $79.00 [not including Shipping & Handling] Hope this helps better to everyone in the future... SithPitt
  6. This is an old post, but I recently had a similar issue. With Durametric you will go to the coding tab for the Level Function and calibrate... The sensor which does not accept your coding is the sensor which is bad....
  7. Finally SOLVED! :cheers: It was the GPS Antenna! I replaced the unit in the Rear Lid Spoiler, but nothing! So I proceed to apply the 1-4-8 code and VOILA! :jump: :thumbup: :cheers: It worked!!! So I guess that if you have NO Satellites and applied code 1-4-8 and still no Sats after check connections, then you got a bad GPS Antenna unit. Finally if you install a new GPS antenna, then apply code 1-4-8 on the PCM unit to reset and PCM to recognize new GPS Antenna. Here are today's picture with finally NAVI Unit fully working. I still got the warning triangles on the SW versions, but at least I can use the NAVI now! Thanks and hope this could help others.... SithPitt
  8. No. I did the 148 & Fuse trick. Didn't work. I bought the GPS Antenna and waiting for its arrival...I'll notify whatever results when I install the new antenna... Thanks anyways :thumbup:
  9. Yes, Loren. I checked that several times and nothing at all... Step by Step.... Yes I checked pass door and same behavior.... I guess PIWIS then is the only solution... I spent like $600.00 on eBay for the Durametric... It's beginning to be considered to be re-sell :-(
  10. Yes I switch left right middle nothing, but door lights doesn't lit either... Just work if I put the key on the ignition
  11. Everything? Well the radio and CD were working... The NAVI put me on Colombia, when I was in Puerto Rico... Beside that... Normal...
  12. Thanks for the reply, but even before the update. The Cayenne had that issue. It was on SW1 and still had the silly symbols...
  13. Hello! My 2003 Carrera 4s has something tricky. It's a 2nd hand car... When you open the door the car's dome light does not lit, nor the doors... But if I put the key on the ignition the it turns on, both: Dome and doors.... I checked all fuses and they're ok... A relay removed perhaps because of the buzzer or something? Any ideas? Thanks in advance!
  14. Hello... Again... My PCM 2.1 on my 2005 Cayenne Turbo has on the information display, no satellites [Please check pic]. Firmware for both PCM and Navi DVD unit were upgraded, but no satellites. I checked it with the Durametric Pro but doesn't seems to fix the issue. Also I checked the connections from the antenna on the rear spoiler through the NAVI unit and it seems ok. I opened the GPS antenna and cleaned contacts overall, but still the same zero satellites results... Any ideas? Thanks in advance!
  15. Hello! My PCM 2.1 on my 2005 Cayenne Turbo has exclamation warning symbols as if there is an error [Please check pic]. Firmware for both PCM and Navi DVD unit were upgraded, but still the error remains. I checked it with the Durametric Pro but doesn't seems to fix the issue. Any ideas? And if the old "take-it-to-the-dealer" "Use PIWIS" suggestion or advice can be avoided much better... Thanks!!!
  16. Let me clarify you something in case that you can't understand simple and plain English. I work and do things for myself and like I said and let me quote myself because you can't read, I said: "But according to most Porsche Mechanics, the struts needs to be removed. I did mine without removing it, but many people will not agree with what I did...". Also like I said the SUV is mine and I do as I'm pleased. It's not Hillbilly. I like to simplify my tasks. That's what an Engineer do. Straight to the point, the smart and easiest way. If you don't like it, I simply don't care :censored:. I posted what I did just to let people know that there's a lot of ways to perform a job... Everybody wants to take it to a Porsche dealer, fine. Everyone has the right to decide what's best for their own interest.... I hope Ciaka, could share his experience and many others here like I did. Providing real alternatives and solutions. The world need people to share ideas, not people to suppress them...
  17. Sorry for not replying earlier... But according to most Porsche Mechanics, the struts needs to be removed. I did mine without removing it, but many people will not agree with what I did... :lightbulb: I made perforations straight to the bolts through the fender. I had to remove the air filters to do that... But again... I did it because I love to do things by myself... The Cayenne is mine :cheers: and I decided to made the holes through the fender... In a future if I have to replace them again, will be a truly piece of cake to do so...
  18. Well as I've seen through forums people explain a lot, but no visual aid... I had same issues like you, but they got worse. I took my Cayenne Turbo to PepBoys and they replaced the bushings on the lower arm marked in red [17, 18]. These were completely broken. Also inspect the front bushing marked in green [19]. Noise gone, but couple of months later faint noise was noticed and replace the whole upper arms [both sides] marked with the big green circle... Begin with those items, due to low costs [bushings I recall were like $15.00 each. Upper arms were like $50.00 each]... I don't want to scare you, but don't let this issue for a long time unattended. Due to this simple issue, later on, the passenger's strut was internally broken. It cost me $1,600.00 each strut plus $400.00 in mechanical labor... Hope this could help you a bit better... Whatever happen, please reply so other members in the future could read the final result / conclusion... Just a suggestion... Good luck!
  19. I'll check for continuity, but still that's a heavy gauge cable... So it's very difficult to be broken since that are was not touch at all... I also checked BROWN cable of the regulator against ground and nothing... Weird thing is that BROWN cable against GROUND had continuity... Also, from the diagrams, I noticed that pin #B2, fan control I guess is the blue colored regulator, is the voltage feedback... Wild case could say that the regulator is fried and no voltage feedback could be received by the Durametric... I guess, by a 75%, regulator is fried... Also noticed that the area surrounding the regulator, a.k.a. the whole enchilada [condenser, filter, etc.], was very, very cold so it's frozen the AC internally... Bigbuzuki, still thanks! I noticed that this post have been a one-on-one troubleshooting guide :jump:
  20. Sorry I'll have to check tomorrow. It's quite late here... But even as that I haven't perform any changes, so I guess is the same status...
  21. Tested... Thanks Bigbuzuki for your fast response! Red/Yellow cable against chassis = 0.00v; Black cable continuity test to chassis = No continuity; Passenger Foot well light 12v against blower black cable 10.47 volts. Those 10.47v seems almost the same coming from fuse 57 which was 10.38v give or take... So regulator delivers the power to the fuse 57 and the fuse 57 to the fan blower?
