  1. Rob sold out after apparently having some trouble filling orders. All his designs and more now are being produced by Hanksville Hot Rods. Hank is a great guy to deal with and they make a great product. I've got the bypass pipes and one of these days am going to upgrade to a full 3" exhaust from the turbo back. I think he's also selling a cold air intake set up now too. I did secondary bypass pipes and a magnaflow exhaust from there back. It opened it up some but it doesn't sound anywhere as good as ciaka's set up.
  2. Once again, did I mention how much I hate electrical issues? I FINALLY figured this out tonight. Went back inside the headlight and was going to test the ground wire coming off the cornering light. Turns out it was a bit frayed at the connector. I fixed that and it seems to have solved the issue. I think I have an idea what happened to cause all this. One of the bulbs went out awhile back and I grabbed new ones at the local parts place. I threw them out when I replaced them when all this trouble started so I can't check, but I have a sneaking suspicion they may have been a higher
  3. Actually looking back at the diagrams (I'm slowing learning how to trace a wire from page to page) there is a ground for the cornering light that goes to MB6. But on the MB6 diagram it's only listed as xenon headlight and on the headlight diagram it's listed as turn signal/parking light . I'm going to pull the headlight back out and start from the ground wire at the socket and work back from there.
  4. For power I have checked at the plug for the headlight and at the plug on the backside of the pigtail. No power on either right or left sides. For continuity I ran a wire from the left hand fuse #21 to the plug pin #9 at the headlight. I get continuity on the driver's side but not the passenger side. Now that I know what MB6 is I doubt that's the one. Headlights, high beams, turn signals, etc. all work fine. It's only the cornering light that is out. I was just looking at grounds in the vicinity. But I also don't see the cornering lights listed anywhere else and now looking a
  5. Cool thanks! I just had that cover half off to replace the burned out side marker bulb. But it's not hard to do. I might have some time tonight or tomorrow to look at it. The side markers are still working so I got that goin for me at least!! :) The other MB6 must be up back under the headlight bracket or down low somewhere. I'll have to root around for that one too. Thanks again for the help!!
  6. I had seen that before but I missed the idea of putting a temp ground on the pin for the cornering light. I might try that. I have thought it could be a ground issue too but I simply can't find the darned things. Both MB2 and MB6 could be the culprit but I can't find where they are. Mark sent me a BUNCH of docs and one has a chart that looks like it shows the location on a gridded pic of the car. But I can't blow it up enough to read it. I think I'll try the temp ground and if that fixes it I might have to get the car up in the air and totally remove the passenger side wheel liner.
  7. Did I mention I HATE electrical issues?! I should have mentioned it many times by now.
  8. Well I am about at the end of my electrical expertise on this one. Looking over the diagrams and info Mark sent me it seems the only logical answer is a short in the wire somewhere between the fuse panel on the drivers side and the right side cornering light socket. I tried swapping out an old headlight switch, no go. I know I have continuity from the fuse to the left side headlight but not to the right side. There is supposed to be a ground somewhere around the headlight on the passenger side but I'll be darned if I could find it. Unless it's actually underneath the headlight tray
  9. I just went through this after a penny fell into my shifter assembly. I found this and replaced the "sunshade" (the black rubber part with the magnets) and it works fine again now. http://www.pelicanparts.com/techarticles/Porsche-Cayenne/11-BODY-Shift_Gate_Trim_Replacement/11-BODY-Shift_Gate_Trim_Replacement.htm#Customer_Comments_Bookmark It is part #95555226500 for the 955's. Not sure if it changed for later models or not. Mine didn't seem to be broken, but it sure didn't work properly. I think it may only take a little bit for the magnets to get out of line with the circuit board and that is
  10. Yeah, I know about the latch, that was actually my first thought was the plug wasn't seating fully. Not the case though. I get no power at the plug itself. I'm going to try a few more things. The side markers were out at one point but then started working again. I also have another headlight switch, I'll swap that out to see if it could possibly be the culprit. And yeah these cars are just about too smart aren't they!? :)
  11. I'm having issues with my cornering lights, specifically the right side isn't getting any power. I pulled the pigtail and it checks out fine, there is power at the fuse, and I get continuity between the fuse and the left light socket but not the right side. No power at either headlight socket for the cornering light though. So it seems to me there almost has to be short somewhere between the fuse and the right hand socket. But the way it winds through the dash and engine compartment I'm not sure how to track it down now. If someone has a diagram of the wiring it would h
  12. Thanks. Any tips other than how to get at it? From the link I posted above one important one that I hadn't thought of was to loosen the pulley bolts BEFORE taking off the belt. Makes a lot of sense!
  13. Yeah it doesn't look like fun. After my last post I did some more searching and did find this that should be helpful....http://workshop-manuals.com/porsche/cayenne_turbo_s_(9pa)/v8-4.5l_turbo/steering_and_suspension/steering/power_steering/power_steering_pump/component_information/service_and_repair/ I still don't think I'll have time this weekend. Saturday I am going to see a tech session with a 918 that should be fun!! If I'm feeling really brave I might attempt it Friday night. I've already got the lower and upper covers off the engine bay from previous work so that will save me some ti
