“Thank you worked like a charm!!!! I have a foxwell, getting error codes 31 ignition circuit - side airbag , driver
and 21 ignition circuit, driver
no idea what to do. Horn works depending on its mood. “
Any suggestions would help. I’ve taken off the door panels and disconnected and reconnected the airbags.
Hello everyone! I’ve run into some electrical problems on my '08 Turbo and I’m stumped.... I've looked through a lot of Renntech posts and don't see any thing close.
First the panoramic roof and sunshade were opening and stopped about foot open. Maybe coincidence, it happened right when someone opened the door. I’ve checked practically every fuse even pulling the pano-roof control unit (back where the motors are located, and the circuit board looks okay. Then the instrument panel has started to act strange. The gear indicator shows that it is all gears at once, see the photo which is while it is in drive and moving. I can shut the car down and restart and the problem goes away. The time keeps changing randomly and the outside temperature is wrong. The button that opens the rear hatch that’s on the driver door has stopped working. Then my battery died, it was five years old so no surprise. After I replaced it the airbag indicator on the panel has lit up. I’ve tried to reset the instrument panel (Main Menu> Settings > Factory Reset) but it will not allow me to select “Reset”. I’ve also pulled the fuse several times to reset the panel but no change.
Today, I’ve connected my iCarSoft POR II diagnostic tool to the car.
The Airbag section says it “cannot connect to the ECU” so I can not reset the airbag light. There are YouTube videos of people using the tool on Cayenne’s (albeit on newer models) to reset it so I believe I can. The Panoramic roof says it does not have any DTC codes. The lift gate button on the driver door indicates it has appropriate voltage and no DTC codes. Also, no DTC codes for instrument panel, electrical system or DME I’m not sure this is related or not, I changed out the interior incandescent bulbs with LEDs. I now know that LED bulbs give off electromagnetic interference but seems remote. (as a side note, I found this out when I put LED bulbs on my garage door opener unit and it stopped receiving commands from the remotes – I had to get special bulbs from Amazon) Yesterday, I removed all the LEDs and went back to the old bulbs – no change.
Any ideas, suggestions or guesses?
FYI: The car is in Drive, "D" and is in motion.
My front wheel was making a rattling noise for about the last week, and this morning as I drove out of my driveway and turned the wheel, I could hear a loud popping noise coming from my wheel whenever I turned. My best guess is that I drove over a pothole and the control arm / bushing moved out of place. Would this be covered under the OE warranty? Or should I take it to a mechanic?
