8202632 replied to rlg4675's topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)Yes this happened to me. Assuming that your nozzle isn't clogged, it may be that the line to the nozzle has become disconnected. That's what happened to me. Look at this link. It gives you the info that you need. https://www.pelicanparts.com/techarticles/Porsche-Cayenne/77-ELEC-Third_Brake_Light_Replacement/77-ELEC-Third_Brake_Light_Replacement.htm
looks like a light kill switch. You must have a 955. Appears not to be available on the 957 https://rennlist.com/forums/porsche-cayenne-forum/941931-turning-off-interior-lights-2.html

8202632 replied to 8202632's topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)Single battery only. Thx
hey all! 2009 CTTS. Over the last 2 days, I had to get my Cayenne jumpstarted on 2 separate occasions. Car starts up fine. Made 2 small trips, approx. 3 to 5 miles round trip. Next time i tried to start, just a click. Used jumper cables to jumpstart. Attached is my Durametric report. I just replaced the battery 2 years ago (25,000 miles ago) with a Duralast Gold H9-DLG. Been watching my volts via my Passport radar detector, and they start low and after driving for a few minutes, they are usually above 13.1. I've read tons of articles, and to be honest, I get confused with electricity, current, amps, etc, etc. Got it charging on my CTEK all night, so maybe that will help. I assume that if the volts are creeping up while driving, then the alternator should be fine? And that the battery may be bad. It has a 5 year warranty, so I may just go through the whole process of removing the thing and taking to my local autozone. Any thoughts or things i could look for to narrow down the focus? Thanks!

OK, I've been doing extensive research on this issue. I've contacted ECS, Pelican, Suncoast, etc to figure out where the magnetic field sensor is on my car. No one seemed to know. My dealer said they would get back to me, but never heard back from them. If you look at the parts diagrams, it's not clear where it is. But here is what I think is the issue. I looked at the order guide for the 2009 Turbo S. In the listing of the options, the compass module is an OPTION only for those cars without PCM 3.0. It clearly lists it as a conflict to the PCM 3.0 option. So this leads me to believe that if an 09 or 10 has the PCM, there is not a separate compass module. The 2008, i believe, has the PCM 2.1 as an option, even though it's considered a 957. So on this model, even if it has PCM 2.1, there is still a compass option. I believe that somehow the PCM on the 09s and 10s feeds the instrument cluster with the compass feed. So I've concluded that there must be an issue within my PCM (or the wiring) that sends the info. Most of us obviously do not have a PIWIS readily available, so i don't know what I can do from here. Been toying with getting a map upgrade so I can update my 1.40 software, but have read mixed things about the upside vs downside of doing this upgrade, as it could create more problems. And it begs the question as to why I even have a fuse in the 36 spot stated above. Frustrating.
So this did not work. It's continuing to disappear at random times. Anyone having this same issue? Where is the magnetic field sensor in a 957?!?!?!?!
Where is it located in the 957 CTTS? I looked under the rear seat and it's not there like the 955. In the parts diagrams it is not clear where it is located. Under my rear seat is the chassis leveling module.
Ordered these from schnellperformance.com. However for whatever reason, it was fulfilled by vertex auto? Anyway the install took a couple of days, as the hardware supplied with the kit was junk. The screws were way too short so I had to go to Lowe's and buy some replacement hardware. Used my drill and dremel to drill the holes in the pedals, but overall I'm satisfied with the way they look.
2009 Cayenne Turbo S Ok. Here's what has been my issue. At completely random times after startup, the compass display next to the left of the on board computer would be blank. Everything on PCM 3.0 would be fine. So I tried to look under the rear right seat where the compass module was supposed to reside. All I could find though was a silver colored box that was confirmed to be the pdcc regulator. So I looked at the fuses and found fuse 36 in the right hand fuse box. It's a 5A fuse and the description is "roof module, telephone, compass." Just for the heck of it I pulled the fuse to see what would happen. All I can tell is ever since I have done that, my compass has been showing up every single time, and I have has no loss of functionality with the roof console and/or phone. NO clue why this might be the solution, but the dealer replaced the instrument cluster about a year ago to fix the problem, but to no avail. I wonder what this fuse is for and if it was causing another module to interfere with the dash display?
8202632 posted a topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)When is it permissible to use the jack points that are under these covers? I can't find any info on it. The jack points are also recessed up close to the frames so I wouldn't even know how to use them? http://www.sunsetporscheparts.com/porsche/cayenne/95550427200/2010-year/gts-trim/4-8l-v8-gas-engine/body-cat/splash-shields-scat
8202632 replied to 09turboS's topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)sport mode and psm off. that will give you a good start. as far as exhaust, replace the secondary cats with bypass pipes. Makes it sound better and reduces a little weight
I had similar oil residue under the engine too. My local dealer somehow ignored it when doing the last service. I noticed it when removing the lower engine cover to change the diff fluid. So I took to my Indy and they diagnosed both upper and lower oil pan gaskets. Extended warranty covered it to the tune of $2500!!!!
