  1. Hi Everyone, So I got a 2004 Cayenne TT and got a call from the wife last night that the red "low coolant" level was on the dash when she started it. I had the car towed back to my house, and got it on the lift this morning. The coolant tubes have been done (aluminum upgrade) but was worried it might be them again. After scoping the engine from above It was all dry and I could see the back of the aluminum tubes and didn't see any coolant anywhere. So after raising it up and going underneath the vehicle I scoped up the back side of the engine and came to what looks like an elbow
  2. Loren, As always thank you so much sir! I figured out the part number today at my local dealer and was just coming back to update the thread but you always beat me to it haha. Only problem is there are none in the USA only Germany, paid twice as much then the parts cost to get them expedited from Germany. Hopefully will be here next week. My regulator went out and the cables got all knackered up in there and when I was removing the frame somehow the glass fell and shattered 😞. you live and you learn I guess. I've put an entire a/c system in this vehicle and it wasn't this big
  3. Hi, I need the part number for the cayenne window regulator clips, not the ones that come with the regulator but the green sandwich clips that attach the actual glass to those clips through the holes in the bottom of the window. I found a video that had them in it and took a picture of them from them below. Any help on part number or where I can get these would be VERY appreciated!
  4. Thanks Loren, I was just coming back to put those numbers in here for anyone else, the dealer helped me find them this morning, should have checked the forum first :). Thanks.
  5. Hey all, Was replacing my purge valve/line when I ran into an issue with another line, the one that connects back to purge valve line and runs on up to the top of the firewall. In the picture below it is "A" or number 31, anyway no parts diagram lists the part number on it and the number I read off the hose (7L5133306C) doesn't come up with anything. Can anyone tell me what part that hose is? Mine is in such degraded shape I don't want to put it back on, thanks.
  6. Hey Loren, Just wanted to report back. Thanks so much for the helpful info again. I think as you said, I've overreacted. Based on the info you provided me about the DME needing to see 10-24°c, I just went out and checked the temperature in the garage this morning, it was a balmy 83°f in there. Then I hooked up Durametric and the engine temperature and intake temperature are both sitting at 39°c which is 15° over the 24°c in needs to be for the DME to activate the pumps.
  7. Wow, thanks Loren! I'm thinking I possibly jumped the gun with how hot it has been in the garage. I shut the car off at about 8pm and it was at normal operating temperature (180° or so I think?) and then sat in a hot garage (this evening it measured 88° out there) all night. I"m thinking maybe the coolant temperature was slightly above 86° and that is why the pumps didn't come on. I'll make sure to hook up durametrics in the morning and see what it is showing since the conditions will be similar tomorrow. Any idea on why I'm not hearing that fan/motor running right after shut
  8. Well I just found out from calling Durametrics that activations are not supported on the 04 CTT engine module so I can't activate them. I did check the 40amp fuses and they are fine along with Durametrics not finding any fault codes preset (and no CEL obviously either). Not sure what else to do at this point. I wouldn't think anything is amiss if I hadn't heard my wife start the car and noticed the pumps were not on. Only other thing I find odd is after the car is shut off after driving it so it is fully warmed up, etc., there was a fan motor (I thought was the radiator fan possibly?) that
  9. Hi Loren, I definitely will this evening, but to my recollection aren't the bank 1 and 2 pumps fused separately? Seems very odd both would blow as neither pump was on. I'll put it on Durametrics as well tonight and report back.
  10. Hey all, I had an SAI failure (bank 2) a couple weeks ago on my 04 CTT so had to install a new pump on the driver's side and also removed and cleaned the check valve, etc. System has worked perfect since then and it solved the CEL issue associated with the bad SAI pump. This morning I noticed when the wife started the car to go to work there was no higher idle/whine like normal, it sounded like a warm start where the idle was already at 700'ish rpms and the pumps were not on. No CEL or anything and it is not a atypical hot morning or anything so what's going on? I've never not heard them
  11. Hey guys, So my compressor wouldn't kick on the other day and after trying everything I new to do and scanning with Durametrics and finding nothing I took it to my trusted Indy. He found no faults either and said his hunch was the compressor is plugged b/c of debris and that I needed a new one. He put his gauges on the system and when revving the car the high pressure side didn't move hardly at all and he said it should go way down and that as many as he has replaced he is sure. I trust him implicitly, he is a friend as well. With that said he is moving in a few weeks across th
  12. Hey all, So very ironic day. Ironic in the fact that I just finished a 3000 mile journey with the old girl even towing a 6k lb payload for 1000 of that and she preformed flawlessly. Today I went out to get some landscape supplies and when I got back in the car the alert sounded and the car was completely locked up with "Steering Faulty" on the display. Couldn't even roll down the windows. Can't get the ignition on to even use Durametrics. I've read everything I can on it and it looks best case: battery, relay, cable, etc. or worst case: steering column. I had it towed to my house since it
  13. Great, I'll hook it back up and see if I can find it and report back with a new file, thanks man!
  14. First of all, it is always helpful to provide the car's year and model in these inquiries. Assuming it is a Cayenne: P0421 Catalytic conversion, bank 1 – above limit value Possible cause of fault - Oxygen sensors in front of and behind catalytic converter are interchanged - Catalytic converter faulty . P0431 Catalytic conversion, bank 2 – above limit value Possible cause of fault - Oxygen sensors in front of and behind catalytic converter are interchanged - Catalytic converter faulty. A little light reading on the subject of O2 readings and state of the cats (from a Boxster dia
  15. Hey all, So I'm trying to track down a 2 code CEL that my 04 has thrown, they are PO421 & P0431. I know these are Cat codes but since it could also be something else (bad 02, etc) I decided to record some live data to look at. I'm very new to Durametric and used it to capture the below values and exported it to an excel file. It is about 2.5 minutes worth of data and I wasn't sure exactly what to select in Durametric so I tried to get what I thought was appropriate to diagnose what to replace. The Values I selected were: 1. Exhaust Temp Ahead & After CAT 2. O2 Sensor
