I got a Cayenne and need some help about 2 control buttons on the front roof light control.
the center button controls the Interior light, ( ok that is in owners manual )
the far left and far right control Map lights, ( ok that is in owners manual )
and the right and left buttons??? seams one is for comfort light dimmer, and the other one?? one of them are missing in owners manual.
Thanks for help!!
My 04 Cayenne S has been at the Porsche dealer for just over a month now. I took it there to have a new key programmed into it. I lost my only working keyfob. I was able to copy the blade of my non-working keyfob at a local locksmith. Well, the next day, I get a call that the computer won't take the new key and that a new sensor, immobilizer and keys were needed. Estimate: $1900. Upset, I felt I had no choice and agreed to it. A week later, I get a call that the parts are coming from Germany and it's be sometime next week. As promised, a week later, the parts made it and were installed. Computer still will not learn the factory new keys. I'm told of numerous emails/calls to Porsche tech support over the course of another week. The last time I called to check around the 18th, I'm told that Porsche has discovered a bug with PIWIS v3. Seems that it cannot program keys into a PIWIS v1 vehicle. Now I'm waiting on Porsche to special deliver a working PIWIS v1 computer.
My BS detector is alarming. I would like my Cayenne back, running or not, but I am at a loss on what to do.
Can anyone backup the PIWIS v3 computer story?
What are the odds that my original sensor, immobilizer and key are really fine?
Should I make them reinstall my old parts and try with the PIWIS v1 computer?
The bill should go from around $1900 to $125.
Is there anyone at Porsche I need to make aware of the potential service problems at this dealership?
A little more on the background. They also claim that they have a non-working PIWIS v1 and that Porsche can remote brick the PIWIS computers when a new unit is issued...?? I'm also told that the Durametric cable and software cannot program keys.
Any help or ideas are appreciated.
I think the relay for my heated rear screen has given up the ghost. It is a 2002 C4S and recently the heated rear screen button won't switch off. It doesn't really switch on either and nor does it heat the screen. The light glows a dull orange and only switches off once I've removed the keys from the ignition and locked the car. The other day when I first noticed it I could hear a relay clicking even though I hadn't touched the switch.
Any ideas or advice would be gratefully received! Thank you!
