    Porsche Cayenne S V8 2004
  1. Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately I have lost hope and do not know what I'm going to do with the car. I have tried to fix the error for over 1 year!
  2. Have you checked the grounds on the seat belt buckles? They are well known for ground related faults. No, this was new information for me. Where can I find it / them ??? The seat belt buckles, the part that the shoulder harness plugs into, have wires running to them that tell the system when the seat belts are buckled and turn off the seat belt alert chimes. They also help tell the air bag system which seats are occupied in case of a crash, as well as controlling the system pre-tensioners. If the buckles get dirt in them, they often do not register properly and the air bag system declares a fault. Sometimes, but not always, just cleaning out the buckles with some electrical contact cleaner will solve the issue, other times the buckle and/or wiring harness need to be replaced as wear has broken the circuit. I have tried to clean but it does not help. I have noticed that the warning lamp for the "safety belt" is not lit when driving without a seat belt. The warning light does not indicate when starting the car. I have never seen the light shine sometime? It is sounding more like you have a buckle or wiring issue, you should get an indication and/or a audio alarm of some sort if you try driving without the seat belt. I get no sound or indicator in the display. Neither the driver side or passenger side. The lamp has never shone in my possession of the car. You advise me to change Buckel seat? No, I am advising you to do some diagnostics to find out why the car does not sense that you are driving it with the seat belts undone. The buckle is just one component in this system that needs to be tested either electrically or using a Porsche specific scan tool. Besides the buckles, there are also weight sensors in the seat cushion's that sense when someone sits in the seat. Something in this network of contacts (in the buckles) and sensors is obviously not functioning correctly. Are you sure someone has not disconnected something in the system before you purchased the car, which is why none of the alerts are set off when you drive without seatbelts? If you go back to Loren's post on the meaning of the code you are seeing, it looks like something is not connected or misconnected. Hello again. Everything started when I had error code 1217 Ignition circuit power's side airbag. * airbag warning light on * Driver's side airbag can not be triggered. This I solved by soldering the cables. A recognized common error in the Porsche Cayenne. I zeroed the car with PIWIS and everything worked. After one month began Airbag light shine again and we linked up the car and made a new diagnosis. Then there were only error code 1738 Airbag Sensor (operates's) * airbag warning light on * Driver's airbag can not be triggered. This code I have now enjoyed for over 1 year without finding fault. I have no other fault codes in the airbag system. When Porsche workshop in Sweden trying to zero the system with PIWIS so it only takes half a second to illuminate the airbag lamp again. so of course I support your theory that there is a short circuit somewhere. FAULT CODE 1738 The airbag sensor (DRIVER'S) Diagnostic conditions * On Ignition * Internal function test on the airbag triggering unit.Possible Cause of fault * Implausible signal (incorrect airbag sensor Installed) * Open circuit (based on wiring between the airbag triggering unit and the air bag sensor or the airbag sensor itself) * Electrical fault in electric circuit (based on wiring between the airbag triggering unit and airbag sensor; probably a short circuit to B + or a short circuit to ground) * Faulty (airbag sensor is faulty) * Airbag triggering unit faulty There are 6 steps in how to troubleshoot the fault. I followed the steps and measured the cables between the airbag sensor (drives) to the airbag triggering unit and cables are intact.

If there is a Porsche god, show that you exist tomorrow and say that this is my fault !!!

  8. Has now changed airbag trigger unit (box) with no results. I have changed everything in the manual for error code 1738. New airbag tendons, new airbag triggering unit box. But my airbag light will remain illuminated. I have tried to zero the system with PIWIS. Unfortunately, my intuition told from the beginning that the error is in a ground fault. I have spent one year at this error and give up now. The car does not go through the Swedish survey and I have now immobilize the car. I will not be able to sell the car even with this problem. I feel very distressed and dejected ...
  9. Hi Loren. Are you able to look at my picture I've attached in this thread? I would appreciate if you are able to tell you which number combinations to match. I have managed to find a couple of boxes on ebay but are unsure which numbers must conform? Have found a box where all the numbers shown true except that which stands between the "stars" With respect / Alex, Sweden The new box must have all the same exact same part numbers as your original unit. all the numbers on the box must therefore match? The part number must match exactly, the serial numbers (between the * *) are unique to each box and all are different. What you're trying to say is that finding a used identical box is impossible? No, I am not. Using your picture above: You have to find one with the exact same 3D0 909 601 D part number; the serial number (*0036 Q 002CM1T*) is does not matter as the only one with that number is the one in your photo. I apologize if I'm nagging. I'm just trying to learn as much about my box as possible. However, you can clarify your last post, I would be very grateful. it is enough that I can find a box from a Porsche Cayenne S 4,5l 2004 model with the same 3D0 909 601 D Part Number. The serial number is thus unique to each box and is only one of each? That is correct. The serial numbers are unique to each box, so they do not matter, you just want to exactly match the part number. I appoint you to my everyday hero. Thanks for your time and dedication to my problem. Greatly appreciated! with the best porsche greetings Alexander Tobiasson, Sweden

  14. Thank you Loren. How important is it with all number ranges that are printed on the boxes? It is sufficient that the part number is identical, or must all number combinations on the boxes to be identical? If I have received accurate information, this number is important in the box. 3D0 909 601D. Thankful for all the support
