  1. Thank you for your response. I was aware of the option list, and what they represent, but I am not provided any pictures of that and was wondering if there was a way to determine if the vehicle is a Turbo S exclusively by the VIN. I doubt there is, but it may be possible.
  2. It is not accurate on my Cayenne. I have the correct tire size from the factory and the cluster still shows a higher MPG than actual. Try doing the math yourself after you fill up your gas tank and see if it is accurate for you. I would like to know if others experience an inaccurate MPG figure on their cluster.
  3. I often purchase vehicles from auctions relying on pictures alone. I have been looking for a Turbo S for myself. I know how to determine if the Cayenne is a Turbo or non-Turbo by looking at the 5th digit of the VIN. Is there a way to determine if a Cayenne is a standard Turbo or Turbo S by looking at the VIN as well? I was thinking that possibly the Turbo S's were only manufactured at a particular plant, or they may have been dedicated to a certain block of VINs that are grouped together by the last 5 digits. Buying vehicles relying on pictures alone has become a bit disappointing, as some people will put badges on vehicles that don't belong on there. I would hate to purchase a Turbo, thinking it is a Turbo S, just because someone put an "S" badge after the "Turbo" badge on the rear hatch.
  4. 04 CTT with 90k miles. My actual MPG is between 10.7 - 11.2. The fancy cluster states 11.5 - 12.2. (Usually about .8 MPG higher than actual) Only mod I have at the moment is a Sprint Booster. I drive mostly around town semi aggressive.
  5. I believe my explanation caused a little misinterpretation. The blower motor seems to work fine. Here is a picture of what I would like to test. This is the electric motor that constantly keeps moving back and forth. Or maybe someone can simply say, "Yes, if it is moving back and forth it is indeed broke." My reasoning for not automatically replacing it is that I am not sure if this is the actual problem, or if it works fine and just receiving an incorrect signal from something else that may be bad.
  6. Let me start by saying I'm not a mechanic, so I do not know the names of certain parts. This is of a 2004 Porsche Cayenne Turbo w/ 4-Zone Climate However, what I do know is, the A/C electric motor (955.624.915.01) under passenger side dash is steadily going back and forth regardless of A/C or Heat On/Off, High Low, Dash,Floor, Etc. It connects to a flap on the passenger side firewall. Pictures are of the same part, just different angles. My question is this. How do I test this electric motor to determine if it is bad? Or could something else be bad causing the motor to constantly move? Any response will be appreciated.
  7. I am replacing my Parking Brake Release Cable, and I am not sure how it is routed exactly. It appears it may be routed in a loop, but I want to make sure. Does anyone have any pictures, or a diagram, of the cable going from the Parking Brake Release Lever to the Parking Brake Foot Pedal? It would be greatly appreciated.
  8. CTEK Comfort Indicator Panel Installation in Cayenne w/images Here is how I installed my CTEK Comfort Indicator Panel. I decided to install it under the driver's side dash for convenience, aesthetics, and to prevent possible damage if I were to forget it was plugged in. There are two different lengths of this type of plug; one is 4.9', the other is 10.8'. I installed the 10.8' cord because I wanted more options of where I could install it. In this mod, I used the following: Small Flat Screwdriver T-20 Torx Driver 6mm, 8mm & 10mm Sockets w/ Ratchet 4 Zip-Ties Razor Blade Sharpie Marker Small Ruler I used my ruler to measure the backside of the Indicator Panel, then marked the demesions on the OBD2 panel under the dash on the driver's side. I then used a razor blade to cut the insulation and panel so the Indicator Panel would have a tight fit. I then used a small flat screwdriver to pop up the SS Door Sills. I then used a T-20 Torx driver to remove the plastic Door Sills. With the Door Sills removed, I pulled the carpet back just far enough to route the cable alongside existing wires from the OBD2 area, to the rats nest of wires located under the driver's seat. I then pushed the new cable through the hole in the battery tray. I then unbolted the positive battery cable removed the battery tray grommet to slide the cable through it. I had to remove the fuse in order to do that. I then reinstalled the battery cable through the grommet alongside the new cable. There is no need to cut the grommet as it will fit with a little patience. I made sure to leave just enough cable to mount the rings onto the battery. I then unbolted 3 different cable to route the new cable underneath to give it a professional look. I then zip-tied the excess under the dash while using zip-ties in various locations to secure it. I then bolted the rings onto the battery posts to make sure it was working properly before I put everything back together. I hope you enjoyed my DIY tutorial. Do not hesitate to PM if there are any questions. I am happy to help. Author 51.50 Category Cayenne (9PA, 9PA1) - Mods Submitted 06/17/2015 06:18 PM

  10. I have a chance to buy a used FVD ECU, but I know nothing about it. Will anyone clue me in to what I am looking at here? I am aware of what it does, but I am not aware of the compatibility to my vehicle. These are my questions: Keep in mind this unit is a older unit that plugs into the vehicle permanently, and is not software installed through the OBDII by a flash tool. Are these units married to a single VIN? Are they plug and play? Would it have came with a flash tool (cable/scanner) to make adjustments parameters myself? Any other info that can be provided would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
  11. I have a "Steering Faulty" code on the gauge cluster. I have the same problem as described in this http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?act=findpost&pid=108429 thread.
  12. I have an '04 Cayenne TT and am trying to do some troubleshooting. Will someone tell me where part # 95561802700 is physically located? It is called "Control Unit Vehicle Electric System" on the parts sheet, but no diagram of location. For reference, it is #14 on illustration 901-03 of the 9PA_USA_KATALOG.pdf. Thank you.
