    PORSCHE CAYENNE 2006 3.2L AUTOMATIC
  1. Hi everyone. Just serviced my cayenne v6 2006 at home. Changed oil and filter and cleaned air filter....started it after that and it started up well....reversed it out and had my man Friday hose it down with a pressure washer....he hosed down the engine compartment also..... Now I put in the ignition key and it says: PSM failure workshop....it doesn't start...as soon as I insert the key and turn the ignition on the gear position indicator goes to D even though the car is in P. The gear indicator shows D irrespective of the position of the gear lever. I connected Durametric and it shows tons of errors....DME 1314 is the fault code under Porsche stability management And also under instrument cluster it shows fault code 1314.... Car is stuck in the driveway.... Everything else is working radio lights etc
  2. Ok one more question....If I buy a used remote from ebay and put my key in it and take it to my dealer and say that the remote has stopped working....will they be able to tell if the remote is from another car? I can say I woke up and the car would not unlock and remote would not work.....so maybe they can reprogramme it....but if they know the remote is from another car then they might not.
  3. Ok so what seems to be the best option? That means the ECU thingie is out......so either I talk to the dealer again or call porsche germany???
  4. Hi Ok so its a bit silly...I lost my only key to my Cayenne 3.2L V6 2006, fell from my pocket....havent been able to find it in 3 days. I do have a skeleton key which opens up the door. Called the porsche dealership here in India and they said they will have to order a lockset along with a new key and code the new key in. The lockset consists of the door lock and ignition lock and is priced at $2000. Now I have come across this on ebay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/2006-Porsche...ccc524&vxp=mtr Will this just be plug and play....that is i replace the ECU and the ignition lock. Will the remote lock and unlock the doors also?
  5. Yes some breakage would be there....its glued and you have to force it.....
  6. When I adjust the dimming switch to increase or decrease brightness then all my lights flicker for sometime and then settle down to normal.
  7. Just finished the NAVTV install OPI-P for the Ipod on my Cayenne 2006. Removal of the PCM was easy, just watched the video on youtube. Unplugged all the wires behind it. The NAVTV OPI-P was easy to work with. I had a plug and play harness. So the PCM has 5 connectors going into it. 2 for the antennae, 1 for the MOST orange cables and 2 more multi pin connectors. The plug and play harness is a straight plug in into the PCM and utilises the existing ground and power. no need to splice anywhere. The MOST cables were easy to work with. The only trouble I had was that the OPI box would not fit in the back, there was just no space. So the PCM has an empty space below it, I cut one tab and shoved the box under it and put some sponge around it so the OPI module doesnt jump around. the IPod cable i routed out of the side of the panel. Tow my OPI came with a Bypass loop for the CD Changer. The loop is a small plastic hollow pipe into which you are supposed to plug in the CD changers MOST cablesfacing w=eachother and snap it shut. But unfortunately I could not figure out a way to remove the Cd Changer and get behind to the MOST cables. So I just switched on the PCM without the Optical bypass loop and to my surprise the Ipod worked!!! IT sometimes is glitchy in the sense that sometimes it wont load the playlists etc but most of the times work fines. The steering buttons work fine. I ordered a Scosche adaptor from ebay for $17 which you need to charge the newer Ipods. It is like $45 from NAVTV. Now I dont know whether the glitches are due to me not having the Optical bypass or just generally. Also when you change a track there is a slight lag. Loving my music in the Cayenne.
  8. So its the same as mine which is LV......so VU and LV are interchangeable?
  9. Its the same year but its a cayenne S...interior is the same color but option code says VU.
  10. Loren my friend got a cayenne too.....the interior color looks exactly the same but the color code option says VU What color is VU?
  11. yep it was the connectors issue, cleaned them up and ziptied them and no problem now
  12. Thanks for all your help guys, I finally went with 18 inch rims and 255/55/18 rubber, ride is veryyy pliant even on broken roads.
