Hi, I'm new here (and a relatively new owner), so please forgive me if this is somehow covered somewhere else --- although I've been researching for a few weeks in the forums and on other sites about my problem and I don't think I've found the specific answer. We checked all the fuses in the pannel on the driver's side, but nothing looks blown, burnt, etc. Everything looks like it's in order A few weeks ago, my key remote stopped working. I can still lock, and unlock my car using the physical key in the door. To open the passenger door, I have to close my door, insert the key into the ignition (within a certain amount of seconds or the alarm sounds), and either physically open the passenger door, or push the unlock button on the dash. My alarm still works, and the sensor on the dashboard still flashes when the alarm is armed (when I double-turn the key to the right when physically locking the door). I know it's not the battery to the remote key (the battery did die before this incident before, I changed it, and then it was fine again). Would any one have any idea why I can't get the remote lock to work anymore? Where else should I look if not the fuse panel?
Hi I just purchased a 2015 Cayenne Diesel. When I lock the car, it used to lock down AND made a chirping sound. After replacing a couple of fuses ("shuffling" as a matter of figuring out which fuse to replace), it stopped chirping. The door lock light comes on steady for several seconds then starts blinking. Thought it may be the "horn setting" but I can't find it in the manual. I suspect that one of the fuses I unplugged may have reset this setting? Does anyone know how to restore the original "lock and chirp" setting.
I never realized that i needed one, bought car in auction and i guess it doesn't have one. How can I get one, need new tires and i do not have the unlocking thing!
2002 C4S (996).. I did a search but nothing definitive. Sounds like replacing the remote key worked for some people, and other people had luck doing otherwise or just didn't close their thread if they ever found a solution. I'm experiencing the following which was never a problem until a week ago: Sometimes the key remote opens/locks, sometimes it doesn't. It seems either that the remote device has an issue or it's somehow intermittently getting out of sync with the receiving unit in the vehicle. When I hit the button on the key I can see the light blinking on the key. When it's working I see the little red light on the vehicle dash receiver flash in "response". When it's not working I don't see the receiver flash at all. The lock/unlock button seems to only work intermittently. When the remote unlock does not work it seems that manually unlocking with the key, putting the key in the ignioion, then taking the key out and trying the lock/unlock button again makes it work again temporairly right away. The system works just fine when I use the key to unlock the doors the old fashioned way (manually using the key itself), etc.... so I'm thinking this is likely something more with the remote device in the key than it is with the central alarm and control unit within the car. If it is the remote key, what else could need to be replaced beside a battery? Can these remote devices in the Porsche keys just "go bad"? Strange that it's not just completely not working and does work intermittently still. Some other notes: - Durametric is showing no faults under "Alarm". (The only fault the entire car shows in any category is under "Seat Memory" and this hall sensor error has been observed by me in the past well before this issue surfaced, so I believe it's unrelated). - I ordered a CR 2032 battery to replace in my key but I'm assuming this isn't the issue since the little red light still blinks just fine when the button is depressed. I will see if that works when it gets here in a couple days. - The car came with a second key which I have never tried to use until this happened. This second key works just fine manually but the remote lock/unlock on it does not work at all (despite the fact that I see the red light flashing on the key). Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
When I turn the key, you can hear the doors lock and then about 1 second later you hear them unlock. However, the arlarm is indeed engaged and any attempt to open the door will set it off. How do you fix it? [TIP] If anyone else has this problem, I discovered a temporary "hack" to lock the doors, though it does requires 2 people: Have someone on the passenger side ready with their hand on the handle. Turn the key and when it clicks, you both immediately press and hold down the handles. For whatever reason, this stops it from unlocking itself.
