Thanks @hahnmgh63, @mudman2, Is it possible for me to send the ECU somewhere for me to code (according to the VIN) and just having to plug it back into the car once its done?
Has anyone here have had their ECUs replaced before? My 2006 3.2 V6 has been in the workshop for the past two months as it seems a replacement ECU is 'blank' and that it needs the codes in the previous ECU to be copied into PIWIS and then coded to the replacement unit. I am not able to do that as the previous ECU was practically 'fried'. My ECU is a Bosch Cartronic 022 906 032 GF. I would appreciate urgent advise from any expert brothers here. Issue started when my 2006 3.2 V6 stalled without warning one day while I was cruising along a street. It started with hesitation for a few seconds and just died. At the same time 'PASM failure' appeared in the console. I turned the ignition off and tried to restart it but it would not crank. After a few failed tries, I got the guys at German Motors (Kuala Lumpur) to tow it to their yard. PIWIS was not able to read anything when connected, it just had this 'accessing' message which went on forever. Soon they chaps realised that the battery was draining very quickly as it constantly needed to be recharge even after replacing a new set. Eventually they found a burnt ECU. Upon opening, brown stains could be seen on the PCB and cover near the connector solder joints of the power input area. we still do not know what actually caused this burnt-out. We did find a cracked coil though and it was smoking after we connected the new ECU. I hope to hear some advise soon. Thanks in advance.
Hi, I have a 2006 Cayenne 3.2L. need to be having my air compressor replaced. I understand that the part number is 955.358.901.01. However a search reveals another air compressor for the Cayenne but seems to be associated with 04 models. Part number is 7L0616006c. The difference from the pics seems to be the bracket and that the latter seems much cheaper, $2xx as compared to $7xx. But can anyone tell me if the air compressor is the same? Thanks in advance Gijster
