This may already be well known info, but I recently had issues with my battery and was contemplating replacing. It was after my car was parked for extended period of time and had issues starting. In short, you can can charge the front driver seat battery via the +/- posts in the engine bay. This will not charge the battery in the trunk. You have to charge this battery separately. What I did this time around was permanently connect a CTEK pigtail with indicator to rear battery. It will show red when low, etc. This will allow to charge/trickle charge the rear batter without having to remove the speaker etc.
Thank you, I appreciate it. Do you know the replacement battery sizes. I know one of them is an H8 group 49. I think that is the one under the seat, not sure.
I have a 2004 Cayenne Turbo and I am away for the week and the wife tells me the car wont start. I have a couple questions i hope someone can help with. First is what are the sizes of the batteries under the seat and the size in the rear. I can't remember which battery I replaced 3 years ago. It was an H8 Group49, but I cant recall if that was the front or back battery. Also, can I tell her to connect the battery charger to the under the hood post to charge the batteries? Will it charge only one or would it charge both? Thanks
I am getting the same sound. Whenever it happens and I quickly hit/release the brakes it goes away.
Thank you, where did you get the gasket, I could not locate one
Anyone use or know if a Volvo XC90 dog gate can be used in the back of our cayennes? I wish Porsche had their own.
I got a roof leak in the passenger rear seat dripping down from the grab handle that is dripping onto the seat. I just recently started parking the car in my driveway as our garage is filled for the time being. The car is parked on a good incline so it would drain from the rear. I did check the front drainage points and they are clear but I dont know where the rear drainage points are. I would like like to check that before I take off the roof rack and re-seal it. thx
There is a weird front end clicking or thumping sound that usually only occurs after driving slow from a stop. It only occurs when the accelerator is pressed and disappears when you let off the accelerator. By accident I found that completely pressing down on the brake pedal will prevent it from happening. I thought it was brakes but I just replaced pads/rotors & it’s still happening. Any thoughts?
My rear drivers side passenger door will unlock via switch or automatically when car shuts off but it will not lock automatically when you start driving or via the lock switch. I have had to start locking manually using key in the door jam area. What brought this to my attention was my kids being able to open the door while all other doors are locked & setting off the alarm. The lights do turn on when car door opens. Has anyone else had this issue & how did you resolve it? Is it possible to repair myself or do I have to take it in.
I am in Florida and with the hurricane coming our way I was just wondering how deep of water could a Cayenne Turbo lifted to max suspension height go through. When going through, is it better to be slow or go fast? What is deepest water you have gone through?
Does anyone know if the rear Brake pads mount kit for a VW Touareg part #: 7L0698269 is compatible with the Porsche Part # 955-352-960-00. I am replacing my brakes pads/rotors and I forgot to order the rear pad mounting hardware. There is no way to order OEM and get by Saturday, but I have a VW dealership near by. Thanks
I was able to install and code the level control module, that error code cleared but now 4 new ones popped up. I now have errors for all 4 level sensors, I hoping that I just need to calibrate. Using the Durametric to calibrate, I get "read error" in the adaptation mode for each. I tried to look up TSB 4316, but I no longer have access to it. Can anyone PM the TSB or provide insight as to why I can't calibrate? Thx
So I was able to locate my manuals & diagnostic codes and determined that the Level control module needs replacing. Luckily it's very easily accessible in the rear right interior panel. I have two questions, does anyone know difference between these two versions of the module- 7l0907553E vs 7l0907553F? I have the E version, but I have seen on eBay the F version for same year & model ('04 Turbo) Also, can the Durametric program/code this module? I know it can calibrate. Thx
Thx, with this car that is the very first thing I look for when things start going wrong. The batteries are both good & all fuses are good as well.
