  1. Thank you both for sharing the information. The PCM problem was fixed by the sequence as suggested by YellowJacketGS. I will replace the battery as a good major.
  2. Thank you for your input. This is useful to know. I may try this no expense fix first.
  3. Thank you. Battery or fuse was my guess but I wasn't ready to drop down $400 battery not knowing other case studies.
  4. MY2015 Cayenne diesel started to show "battery protection..." warning. And Navi system started to turn off and on by itself every few minutes. Battery may need to be replaced. But would that fix the navigation system issue? I would be grateful if you could share your experience/knowledge.
  5. Hi I have 2015 Cayenne. In addition to the bolts which holds the caliper, there are two smaller bolts which holds pads with what seems to be a spline head. I tried to use 10 and 11 mm spline sockets but either of them worked. Anyone know its size? Is it possibly SAE?
  6. Hello, I'm starting to prepare my 996 C4 for the track. Regretfully, I installed a set of all season tires on 18" OEM wheels. They melt like candy after a few laps. Anyone have recommendations for aftermarket wheels and tires for track use (only)? Thank you for your recommendation in advance,
  7. Here is an update. Durametric test showed communication problem with one of the doors. Turns out I misplaced a fuse when I was looking for a fuse to hard wire radar. Works fine now. Feeling a bit silly .
  8. Hi I just purchased a 2015 Cayenne Diesel. When I lock the car, it used to lock down AND made a chirping sound. After replacing a couple of fuses ("shuffling" as a matter of figuring out which fuse to replace), it stopped chirping. The door lock light comes on steady for several seconds then starts blinking. Thought it may be the "horn setting" but I can't find it in the manual. I suspect that one of the fuses I unplugged may have reset this setting? Does anyone know how to restore the original "lock and chirp" setting.
  9. Hello, I just returned to State side after ten years of living overseas. To jump into the winter here is Colorado, I need to get winter tires on my 1999 996 C4. Service manual shows the following as a starting point. My C4 has 225/40 R 18 for fronts and possibly 7.5J x 18 - 50 for wheel. Similarly 265/35 R 18 for rear and possibly 10 J x18 65 wheel. However, winter tire conversion may not be so easy. It seems to require 17 inch wheels: 205/50 R 17 89T M+S - 7Jxł7 - 55 for front. 225/45 R 17 90T M + S - 8.5J x 17 - 50. I haven't done anythig to brake caliper hoping that there wont b
  10. Thanks for your input. I will post the results whenever I get to it.
  11. Thank you all. I'll try redye the seats again and see if it fails the second time. It is a significant cost savings compared to new seat cover.
  12. Talk to JoAnne at www.colorplus.com. You might be able to save your current leather. Thank you for your suggestion. Actually I treated the seats using a dye from Colorplus three years ago but it started cracking lately. They've done a fantastic job of matching color. I wonder if I should have sprayed the color instead of brushing or used some treatment afterward. I also stored the car for a couple of years right after.
