I don't know if this is normal or not........ After stopping the Cayenne (the susepnsion selector was in the 'normal' position vs. Sport or Comfort), we stopped the car and got out. We then opened and closed the rear hatch. After about 10 minutes, while milling around the car, I suddendly heard the sound of air being released (lasted a couple of seconds) and watched the front end of the GTS slowly drop about a inch. Don't know if the back went down, as I was just stunned. This is the wifes car, and I do not recall ever seeing/hearing this before. No error codes. Everything appears normal. Is this normal operation for the Cayenne air suspension? Thanks!
I went to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) site and found two 'Technical Service Bulletins' for my 2010 Cayenne GTS, but cannot find them in the list of TSB's on this site (I am a paying member), so I wonder if they are really TSB's or not. The two in question are: TI-54-09-6 'Air Bag Control Unit' dated Oct 19, 2009 (NHTSA Item Number 10033225) and TI-41-09-2 'High Pressure Fuel Injectors' dated Oct 19, 2009 (NHTSA Item Number 10033226)
I've done a number of writeups on various motorcycle/truck forums, so I'll do one when I do the oil change. Just wanted to make sure there was nothing 'special' about doing a oil & filter change on this, since i cannot find a service manual for my 2010 GTS ...or any Gen 2 for that matter. Do you know if the oil pan drain plug takes a allen, torx or XZN bit? How about the oil filter canister housing, I heard it takes a 74mm/14 flute oil filter wrench? -steve
Looked thru the forums and did not see any instructions on changing the engine oil & filter on a Gen 2 4.8, did I miss them?
stevepsd replied to stevepsd's topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)Our GTS-Red/Sand full-leather GTS is getting a PPI this week, oil/filter change along with the installation of the $$$$ OEM Bluetooth module for the PCM3. OEM trailer hitch install will be next. I wonder how much that will cost. We pick it up next week and then off on a 3000 mile road-trip!
Has anyone added either the OEM trailer hitch or a aftermarket unit setup? The physical hitch install seems pretty straight forward, with the exception of having to trim the rear valance for the actual receiver. The bigger question for me is the wiring. I *assume* that Porsche sells a kit with all the necessary wiring/modules/relays (and whatever other bits are required) and its just a matter of disassembling whatever is required to plug them in, correct? What about the aftermarket unit. There does not appear to be any wiring adapters that I could find for the 2010 Cayenne, such that you can usually find for other vehicles. I really only need the 4-wire flat trailer connections (brake/running/turn signal). Has anyone done this to their Cayenne, either OEM or aftermarket? Thanks! -steve
Found out yesterday that our soon-to-be 2010 GTS does not have Bluetooth.....don't know why as it has everything else: NAV, XM, Voice Control PCM, Universal Audio Interface, Backup camera but no Bluetooth. However it can be added for only $1250 or so. $650 for the OEM Bluetooth module and $600 in labor. Any other options out there? I checked the NAV-TV site and they don't show anything for the PCM 3.0 system. Seems like a lot of $$$ just for Bluetooth.
stevepsd posted a topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)Hello! I am purchasing a 2010 Cayenne GTS - with 15k miles on it, one owner, dealer maintained, etc...pick it up in 2 weeks and then on to a 2500 mile road trip. This is our first Porsche, so.....anything I need be aware of, check, etc before the first big trip? Thanks. -steve
