Found another issue I'm trying to sort out. My Cayenne is optioned with Entry & Drive, however when I purchased the vehicle a few weeks ago the former owner did not have the dummy plastic Entry and Drive key. I ordered a new key and it came in the other day. The remotes are both working correctly, the vehicle is locking and unlocking like it should, all door buttons work on the outside. The problem appears to be the ignition cylinder. When the plastic E&D key is put into the lock, it goes in OK all the way, but has very hard resistance turning one position to the right although it does go. It will not turn to the start position to start the vehicle. From center it will turn to the left with no problem and then back to center OK. I've also noted the key can be removed in the "on" position where it would normally not be able to. Both flip keys work the cylinder flawlessly in all positions. Am I doing something wrong here or could I just have a faulty cylinder? My first thought was can the cylinder be lubed and if so what would be the correct lubricant to use? Don't want to shoot it with something that will zorch the lock & then be towed to the kindly dealer. I'm sure the plastic key is fine, it was a new Porsche part in the bag. Thanks Eric
So on the way home yesterday, everything drove fine. Key fob in my pocket, door handle unlocks no problem, "dummy" entry and drive works no problem to start the car. Drive home and go to turn the dummy key to the left for 2 seconds (normal) and it won't complete the "shutdown" (move column in and what not). Go to turn the dummy key back to START and it says NO KEY FOUND. try to lock and unlock with the handles, nothing. The key fob BUTTONS work to lock and unlock....but the proximity sensors on the handles do not. To start the car now i can no longer use the entry and drive feature.....it requires the use of the key in the fob. Three questions to start the discussion: 1. Why does the fob key work to start the car, and why do the buttons works, but nothing else? 2. Considering EVERYTHING no longer works, is it safe to assume the Kessy module? 3. Is there a fuse location i could check to see maybe the Kessy is not powered? I don't have any sort of diagnostics, which i know will make it difficult to diagnose. But last resort will be to bring to and Indy shop with the porsche programmer. Thanks
