All very thoughtful replies. So far, I have had the following done. Had the balancing done. Re-alignment done. I also had the road balance done yesterday. No effect. I took it to the dealer today, they checked all the shafts, nothing obvious. They have kept the car overnight since it tends to do this much more so in the mornings. Funny thing is, I notice it a lot more on cemented surfaces than tar roads. I dont know why. and especially when turning right. Now that the wheels have been rotated, I feel the problem is travelling with the tire. The weirdest part is that the milege has dropped to 12 or so. So I know something is definitely wrong. The car doesnt quite coast anymore, and it feels like there is a lot more drag on it than normal. If they cannot find anything tomorrow, I am going to ask Michelin for help and see if they offer anything. The tires are about 4000 miles old, so really there is no problem there, unless it is something inside one of them. Really weird problem and makes me so not enjoy the drive that I used to. Any other ideas?
Hi, I have a 2006 Cayenne S. I have 18 inch Michellins on it that are about 5K old. Recently, I have developed a very weird problem and wanted to see if anyone else has experience similar issues. Lately, the car would "oscillate" at idle speeds. Meaning, its almost like riding in a boat. The car would ride would sway left to right repeatedly, like oscillating. It seemed like one of the tires had a bump or something. It made the car very jerky on slow speeds, the mileage dropped immediately and the car seemed to be dragging more than gliding on highways and roads. The wobble seemed to be caused from the passenger rear tire it seemed. I took it in to a tire place, then checked all 4, alignment and balance. The passenger rear was off balance ( i just completed a 1000 mile trek before this). Since then, the car was a bit better but I could still feel that it was not completely fixed. Now, a week later, the problem is back in full force. The wobble is now on the front passenger ( after rotation), and it is almost like the car is jerking when at idle speeds and turning. Makes me wonder if it might be a boot or suspension instead of the tire. I plan to take the car in tomorrow and have the front passenger checked again. I am wondering if anyone here has experienced similar issues or has suggestions on what might be wrong and possible remedies. Appreciate the help.
Eric, Any ideas about the USB drive. Have your tried putting some mp3s on a USB drive and sticking it in the Gateway to see if it reads and plays that too?
Thanks Alex, That is useful info. If we install it in the CD changer slot ( which I dont have in my car), I am guessing we will have to route the wires all the way into the front. I heard some members installing the unit behind the PCM, which would make the install a bit easier I guess. My other questiion is regarding the USB Drive input for the Denison. I have heard talk about where you can load up songs on the USB stick and they will play, thus avoiding having to dedicate a ipod to the car or/ and using a chaper and bigger USB drive drive for much larger storage. Is that something you ccould verify? And another thought is for the AUX input. I have thoughts of somehow interfacing my Parrot kit through it but not sure how the switching would occur between the Ipod and the AUX inputs. Would be nice if the Denison went to AUX automatically every time it was present, because the Parrot has a relay to activate the sound, so it would come on only when in use, and then go back to the Ipod play after the phone call. Now that is really asking for a whole lot but hey! one can wish cant they!! At long last, at least we have two companies with competing products for our beloved Porsches.
Hi, I am axxiously awaiting feedback on the Dension 500 install to see what the opinion is on its usage, likeability, and comparisons to the NavTV unit. Also, any views on the install process as well? How difficult is it? So come on guys, out with the info.
Matt, Curious where you got it from and how much did it cost you? I have been hearing reports from $500 all the way to $750.
Hi, I have been driving my Cay 06 S for just about a year. I did notice a few things and wanted to see if anyone here shares: This is driving in Chicago: 1. The FM traffic receiver doesnt seem to work in Chicago. I have had it come on once in this whole time and that was driving in Cincinnati. Any suggestions? 2. The engine noise: It used to be a easy mean HUMMMMMMM.... and now its more like a drum roll, more like its not smooth and something is off. I can also feel slight vibration on the steering wheel sometimes. The cabin has become definitely more noisy. 3. I have a slight discoloration ( from scraping a wall just slightly when turning), any suggestions on the best way to use the factory paint canister ( buff first, wash it etc etc). 4. Any news of Porsche coming out with a Bluetooth solution for this car anytime soon? Weird but it my history is right, Porsche is the original inventor for bluetooth. hmm!!!
Hi, I have a Cay S 2006 model with PCM and Bose. I would like to add the CD changer to this. The questions I have are: 1. Price and Availability 2. Does the CD changer play mp3 like th in-dash cd does? 3. Would I still have access to the in-dash CD player. I understand the install is plug and play. Is that correct?
hindibuff replied to gasmanavo's topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)This is my pet peeve about this car too. Cannot put two cups together in the holder.
Make sure you have saved some stations first or have set it for Autosave. Another thing is there is a manual tuning setting in the radio also. Make sure that is not checked. Sure way to tell is if you turn the knob (right) it should go to the next preset, and not start scan. Hope this helps. PS: Anyone with voice command?
Hi, I have a Cayenne S 2006 model with Nav and Bose. Looking for the part number for the Porsche Voice Control. Now, this voice control is not available in US so not sure if a US dealer is able to order this or not but available rest everywhere in the world.
Hi, This voice control enables a spoken command to control things like Navi, CD, Phone, and AM/FM. Pretty cool eh! Noticing the voice control option is available in all countries as listed on their websites, except for US. I am guessing it doesnt need a mic since 2006 already has two mics in the car. would love to know more about this. anyone with any retrofit installs about this?
