2006 Cayenne S - headlight issue (high beam intermitent) - Urgent

Recommended Posts

Dear forum mates,

This just occured a couple of hours ago - my Cayenne usually is parked with a bit of the window down for the ventilation from the desert heat, when a recent thunderstorm came out of nowhere and torrented on the vehicle. Some of the water must have logged under the "headlight beam and turn signals" switch and the headlight is behaving erratically.

The high beam comes on and off - even when the turn signal is used or simply when the car is driving.

A few questions on this regard.

1) Can I airdry over this area and eliminate the issue or is this switch toast?

2) How can I take apart the steering column to get to the area of the switch?

2) I've never gotten to the battery since I've had this car but how do I get to this, so that I can disconnect the battery?

Appreciate your prompt thoughts - I can't believe how this rain got me by surprise and left my car in this unforunate state.

Thank you,

The desert heat dried it out, wvicary, not before the battery was drained. Thanks to the little fella in the garage, jumped it and have been able to drive it since then. I did find that triple-square torx at an O'Reilly near-by, so will come handy, if I need to replace the battery.
