I'll try and make a very long story as short as possible. I'm three mechanics in and still haven't solved it yet. I've searched extensively and come across many similar issues but not the same combo of issues I'm having. 2006 CTS w/110,000 miles, no major issues before this. I'll start with this: is there any related wiring, control modules, fuses, etc/whatever, between the headlamps and the rear upper center brake light? Also possible the driver side horn, which also isn't working? All these things seemed to start failing around the same time. I'm getting the dipped beam warning on the driver headlamp and the brake light warning for the center upper rear brake light. They always seem to happen around the same time. Mechanics have ruled out bulbs and plug/outlet contacts, those seem to be fine. New battery and alternator is good- both tested and no issues. I replaced both headlamp mount trays with new ones myself, that stopped the headlamps from coming loose over bumps or potholes. That used to happen and I thought that was the only reason I would get dipped beam errors. I would go over a bump, I'd get the dipped beam warning, one or both headlamps would stop working and sometimes I could get them working again just by turning the headlight switch off and back on, but usually I would have to stop, get out of the car and physically push them back into place, and then they'd work again. Now, only the driver side headlamp will stop working but no correlation to rough road or bumps, and pushing it back in doesn't fix the problem, only turning the lights off and back on again will do it. Anyone have any experience with this combination of issues? Really appreciate any help.. Thanks!
I have searched this but have found conflicting info so I'd really appreciate some help please: I'd like to fit these wheels on our '06 Turbo S: http://www.porsche.c...enneturbowheel/ You can see by the link, I doubt Porsche would list them if they didn't fit *however* in my searches here a few members have warned against fitting 18" wheels on the '06 Turbo S due to brake caliper clearance, unless I misunderstood. If someone can help confirm I can fit these, that would be great. I currently have the factory 20s but I'd like to have a set of 18s for winter. Thanks!
I'm looking at a 2006 Cayenne Turbo S (my first Porsche.) Anyone have any advice on what to "beware" of on this year, make and model? 85k miles and offered as Certified so I would be looking at 2yrs/15k mls. additional warranty coverage. I was asking the salesperson if the air suspension components are covered and he said yes but he also said only if it breaks and that it would not be covered in terms of "wear and tear." I found that to be confusing and from the air suspension on a BMW X5 I once had, at least on that car, it was super-expensive to replace. Anyway -- anyone willing to share advice, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks!
