The left door key switch on my 00’ 996 c4 will not lock or unlock. I took the handle and bracket out of the door frame. I was told what usually breaks is the cylinder but nothing appears to be broken. I don’t want to buy a new key so simply replacing the bracket isn’t an option. Is there a straight forward solution or do I need a specialist??
Any my feedback would be much appreciated thanks!
I have a 2004 Cayenne S. I just got it recently, interior lights have never worked. I checked the fuse and it was blown. It calls for a 20 amp fuse but the blown one in it was a 25 amp. I had the key in the ignition if I remember correctly and put the new 20 amp fuse in and everything came on. Side note, I noticed a weird glitch with the light above the rear passenger side door and the switch on the main map reading light. The interior lights had gone off and I turned the back on and the backlight above to passenger side door was very dim. I slid the switch on the overhead console for the main map light and the rear light came back to full strength. I found that odd. Everything then worked fine. I took the key out. Next time I put the key in, immediately heard the fuse blow. Any ideas on where to start?

Planning to replace the gauge cluster in a 2010 GTS with a Turbo gauge cluster and have a few questions. In researching this swap, I found some references in the archives to swaps done as far back as 2006 or so, but no answers to the questions below. I did a test fitment this past weekend and planning to do a permanent swap in the coming weeks when mileage on both clusters is the same (or within 10 miles or so!)
In the settings on the Turbo cluster, COMFORT is in all caps and subsequent menus overlap in all caps. It appears setting can be set. Does this quirk affect usage at all? Is it possible/simple to swap the clock set button + trip mileage reset button? On the Turbo cluster the clock is half worn off, but on my GTS cluster it is perfect. I would like to keep the better looking clock set button if possible/simple. Any possibility of swapping in voltmeter on Turbo cluster? I know the gauge front is one big piece and may be tough to get right, but more wondering if the electronics are there and would be plug-and-play behind since the wiring sends the battery/electrical volt data to the cluster. (clearly I am not an electrical engineer!) If question 3 is an absolute NO, then how do you Turbo owners know how many volts your battery/electrical system is putting out (without the use of a radar detector that can tell you)?
Thanks for reading this far, and thanks in advance for any useful responses to my queries above.
Just posted a docu. on my completed 02 996 M96 3.6 l engine rebuild for a gorgeous C4 cab barn find, I bough back in August 17 as roller with complete engine (Head&Case failure).
It is not about performance upgrades or how it should be done. Is about the process to get it done with very details on the critical steps for the hands-on engineer.
The car drives fantastic now, and if it breaks I will be confidently enough to spend the needed money and time to order on the new hard parts (Nickies, rods, heads, etc.... For now I did not spend anything other than on a high-mileage used 997.1 donor engine and a couple of 996 cases with paired pistons/rings from engines with other type of failures).
I wish I had an alike docu. when I started - so I share it here, and hopefully it is useful for someone who wants to bring a M96 996 3-chain engine back to life .
I have a 2009 997.2 PDK Carrera 2 and am getting a loss of power and this error code:
2510: Fuel high-pressure control - adaptation. Value below lower limit value
I believe this means my HPFP is dead and am looking for the workshop procedure for replacing the high pressure fuel pump HPFP. I have looked far and wide for a DIY tutorial on this, but found nothing. My local stealership will do the work for $900 labor plus parts. I have sourced the pump for $850 and want to do the work myself. The pump looks readily accessible at the back right end of the engine, facing the rear bumper.
I am happy to write this up as a DIY with pics if someone can forward me the workshop manual pages or procedure?
