  1. I have a 2004 3.2 cayenne. During replacing the prop shaft (thumping on down shift) the battery drained flat and required a re-charge. when connecting the battery and trying to start the car i got a "brake proprtioning" error, and the car would not start. having no luck called the breakdown service who tool my car to an auto electrian who attempted to find the fault. attaching a diagnostic machine i was told it was the ABS swicth or ABS module, switch replaced but no fix. ABS module sent away for testing came back clear (well the company say they couldnt fully test, needs a main dealer) But i have been given the error codes from the garage, and the two codes are 0513 and 0524, whilst the brake proportioning error remains on screen. currently the car doesnt run does anyone have any idea what causes these errors, and does it need a main dealer to repair? or can an independant porsche guy do this? any help would be great thanks
  2. All, as an update if this helps anyone. I have a 2004 cayenne that has porsche side steps on, my steps cover the drain plugs down the side of the car (is this normal)? there are 3 drain plugs on each side. I posted a video over this weekend of me lowering the side steps and draining the plugs. here it is on youtube cheers tony
  3. Have a 2004 3.2S. Lately I have had a few strange problems and been hearing water sloshing on the drives side when braking or accelrate quickly. Number plate lights seem to have no live, car sometimes not locking/opening, and reading posts i see that the water drains can get blocked and cause water to build up creating problems? I have taken down both front wheel arches and taken off what i think are the drain plugs, but no water has been released. Am i looking in the correct place, and are they any more drain plugs I should look for? My 3.2S has a turbo kit with sidesteps, could this be covering any more plugs? two photos, of the wheel arch, drivers side has two plugs which both have been removed. any help/advise or photos of other drain plugs would be great tony
  4. Thanks, i have looked in these places now and still found no issues...ill keep looking
  5. I must be looking in the wrong place. I cannot see any ground on the rear light unit. Today, i looked at the number plate units again. Checking with the tester i can confirm the light units are both ok as i get a connection sound using the multi-meter however, when connecting the tester to the two wire on the car i get no reading when the car lights are switched on? its either bad earth or no voltage getting through.. any more pointers (sorry to be think!!) tony
  6. Hi loren, Any pointers where the ground is located? I took off the number plate lights and their are two wires on the plug that go onto the number plate light unit. All looks ok, no dirt, no rust, no damage.. Do i just test the ground wire from the plug, or is there a central ground for the rear control ? Thanks for any help
  7. Thanks loren. I recently changed a rear light bulb so maybe that is the key to it Thanks for the tip! Cheers
  8. Hi all, I had a message come up saying "check license plate lights", are sure enough the bulbs had blown. purchased the new bulbs and replaced but still have no lights and the message remains. I cant find a fuse that powers the number plate lights... Any thoughts on a fuse?, or things to check? thanks for any help
  9. Hi Ivan, I recently installed running boards on my 2004 cayenne, it's definitely a two man job and you need to remove the plastic from underneath first. What part are you stuck on? Unfortunately i'm in London, UK...so can't really pop round and help, but happy to advise following my experience. Tony.
  10. Hi all, New to this forum and looking for some help. I have owned a 2004 Cayenne for the last 4 months, i recently discovered that when using the rear passenger window switch the window will never go down, only up! It doesnt matter if you press or pull the button, the window always goes up? all windows work fine when using the drivers control switch. I have swapped the actual switch with the other switches but same problem remains, so i guess the switch is not the problem.. Anyone had similar problems or have any ideas ? thanks Tony
