  1. Further to this.....I took my Cayenne S to a Porsche Specialist and it turned out to be something in the on-board programming. Along with the puddle lights in the wing mirrors not coming on and the reversing light not coming live in the towing electrics. All of this was sorted once they plugged in their laptop and ticked some boxes....or something!
  2. Hi, I've put a link below of the one I bought. Worked out to cost about £45 which is a lot compared to some of the backing cameras you can buy, but like I said the picture quality is really good and it replaces the number plate light perfectly. It has a built in LED light which is brighter than the standard one so now I'm replacing the number plate light on the other side with an LED one to match, but again the sizes are all smaller than the one that's in there. I can't understand why they are advertised as Cayenne when the size is wrong. The other good thing with this camera is it com
  3. I've recently upgraded my PCM 2.1 for an Alpine W920R (UK version.....I seem to think its an S920HD in the states) in my 2005 Cayenne S. Whilst I was at it I also fitted a backing camera which is built into one of the number plate lights. I ended up buying the camera through eBay from Australia as all the others that claimed to be for a Cayenne gave the wrong dimensions. The picture quality is fantastic and not bad at night. The down side is its slightly off centre, but not a huge issue as I mainly wanted it to show the tow bar when I hook up to my caravan. I bought an adaptor to link int
  4. I had wondered if the whole drivers mirror had been replaced at sometime as the glass is different to the passengers as is the mirror motor. So it could be that the wring has been fiddled with. The mirror still heats and folds in, its just the movement that's odd. The passengers mirror works fine in all ways. Will remove the door panel and have a look to see if anything obvious jumps out. Thanks for the hint.
  5. Hi All, This is my first post so please be gentle on me. After 7 years of BMW X5 V8s I've bought myself a 2005 Cayenne S and so far am very happy with it apart from some little issues, most of which I've managed to fix. I've replaced the boot gas struts, foot brake gas strut, faulty park sensor and headlight bulb (easy bits). Not sure what to do with the PCM at this stage though...it has a mind of its own and has got worse since a software update for new maps (this will be a post for another day). The problem I have at the moment which I can't seem to get to the bottom of is when I go to
