  1. wow! sorry this happened to you, but actually it is a fairly common problem. Maybe not with Porsche's but certainly with other makes. I'm in the insurance industry and have seen this problem several times, particularly with Ford & Land Rover pano-roofs. There is also at least one complaint at http://www.safercar.gov/ about a Cayenne's pano-roof self destructing. I would present this info to the dealer and Porsche NA for further investigation and resolution
  2. I've had this problem too with Yoko's on my 928. make sure you have the correct pressures set and a correct alignment
  3. funny we had a slight cold snap here too. I had let my CTT sit for about 4 days and when I went out to start it my dash was a Christmas tree, the PCM was unavailable also.I drove a few miles,did the 148 reset and everything was okay
  4. BTW I am also very familiar with Pam & Chris @ Numme and Roman @ Star Service. If it were my 997, I'd be going to Star Service.
  5. Technik One huh? I know those guys. Okay so we're looking at a bumper replacement along with the rebar and brackets, let's assume the headlamps housings are cracked along the bottom behind the bumper, the 2 heat exchangers up front and the related air guides, the frunk lid and latch, blend the fenders assuming they're not damaged, set up the car and measure it out make sure the unibody is straight and if not a little pull time, labor, paint & materials, my educated guess is you're in for $9-$10.5k
  6. update, I actually got a Bose 5.25" woofer.I bought an old Acoustimass system from a yard sale and the woofers - there are 2 in the bass module - are exactly the same! who knew!?!
  7. hey big! thanks for the reply. that's the crazy thing though, it's not showing any codes particular to the instrument cluster or ECU when we scanned it! it actually happened once when I was at my independent getting some vacuum lines swapped out and he immediately connected his scan tool and there was nothing showing other than the vacuum and intake leaks I was there for in the first place. there's no reduction in performance and I can see and feel the box upshifting and downshifting normally as I drive it. it doesn't lock up in any particular gear. I can turn it off, turn it back on and it's back to normal for another 30mins or so. I'm guessing it's electrical - something is getting hot and causing a bad connection.
  8. hmm...that's curious. my issue is I get an odd display/warning in the gear selector indicators but the tranny upshifts and downshifts smoothly through all gears and it isn't throwing any codes! the car drives normally but the cluster gives this wacky warning after about 25-30 mins of driving. I've driven 60 miles like this and no problems encountered whatsoever. I had the tranny serviced at 119k before this started happening.
  9. check the GPS antenna in the spoiler too. good luck!
  10. okay update. took everything apart and reconnected the new amp. still no joy. did the 1-4-8 reset and the new amp works just fine. just fine enough for me to discover the subwoofer is blown too! gotta love it!
  11. Have you tried the " 1-4-8" reset? Seems to resolve a few odd issues with PCM
  12. Hi All! Old post I know but I finally got around to installing a new amp and the sub still doesn't work. Does the new amp need to be coded to the car? Thanks in advance.
  13. Well guess I'll be replacing mine too. I've been noticing my music sounding thinner and thinner week by week. Today I decided to investigate and here we go! Anybody have a working sub or sub amp you'd like to part with?
  14. Today I had the great pleasure of meeting the legend himself, in person! Eddie Bello ladies and gents! What a really nice guy too!
  15. Hi All! I have a question for the group. I noticed today my map screen is freezing on my last stop. The navigation works fine when I put in a new destination and activate the route guidance but when I come to a stop, or slow significantly, the map will default back to my last location. For example, the last destination I entered was Brookdale, NJ and today I put in Brookhaven, NY. The system worked fine but when ever I would slow down significantly, or come to a stop the map would go back to the NJ location and then return to my current route once I was back at speed. Any ideas?Thanks
  16. check out http://www.hhrproducts.com/porsche-cayenne-957-2007-to-2010/ maybe able to retro fit
