After all the help with my last little dilemma thought i would come back and ask the helpful family here. Out this morning in our 04 Cayenne Turbo and tilted the steering wheel down using the buttons on the steering column, went to adjust the column back to the original position and nothing happened, pushed the button to drop the steering wheel more thinking (perhaps foolishly) that if it goes down then it must go up!!!. Unfortunately this is not the case the wheel is in the lowest position, dismantled the trim and located the button control box thinking maybe i can meddle with this however there is nothing to meddle with. I can see the screw that raises and lowers the steering column and the motor which is nicely hidden, when pressing the down button the motor clicks but when pushing the button up there is no sound at all?, if it clicks with one button surely it would click with the other thought it might be a relay?. If anyone can throw some light on this it would be much appreciated

Thank You In Advance

Thought i would give a quick update, once again Will and Laurence at Chelsea Carrera have sorted the problem, spoke with Will briefly, he said that he had never heard of this problem and that if i got the chance could i run the car in. Following day called and spoke with Laurence, he said that they were particularly busy could i drop the car off on Thursday, left it with them and Will called to say that he had sorted the problem, picked the car up had a quick chat with Will he said that he had sorted it but would like the car back the following Thursday just to check. Once again Laurence and Will have sorted the problem a big thank you to them.

Sorry RFM only just seen your question, the answer is they do not know Will managed to get the tilt motor working again using a laptop connected to the car im sorry its not an explaination however this is what he told me to be honest i havent moved it since the other motor which moves the wheel towards and away from the driver is fine, may look at just replacing the motor but not sure if you can purchase just this part

 

Regards

Given your symptom I'd be much more suspicious of the switch. They used the laptop and something like Durametric (which can do this) to activate the motor to raise the wheel - meaning the motor is OK. The motor reverses direction by switching the polarity of the volts going to the motor, likely done with the control switch. Chances are there is a relay - that is also a possible suspect.  The Durametic may be activating the relay.. or it may all be done via the body module - pointing to the switch again.

 

Either of those would be a world easier and cheaper to replace than the motor itself (and replacing the motor likely isn't going to fix anything.)
