cayenne instrument cluster replacement question

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have knowledge of whether there are different types of instrument clusters or do they just need to be programmed to a specific vehicle.


After a  recent cluster used replacement on a steel spring model, it shows an error on the air suspension which this model does not have.


Is it a coding issue or has the wrong cluster type been fitted. I am struggling to find any specific information on this issue. Having connected the car to both PIWIS and Durametric it seems that the cluster cannot be set to 'non air suspension' although there are number of other modules can be, and appear to be set correctly.


Any ideas ??

For the first generation Cayenne (2003-2006) there are 3 clusters - one for 6 cylinder, one for normally aspirated 8 cylinder, and one for the bi-turbo 8 cylinder.

In your case you need to find an 8 cylinder cluster and have it reprogrammed.

There is a DIY article here where several owners have put a turbo cluster in a Cayenne S - it is a little more work but looks very nice.

OK thanks i don't mind replacing the cluster - but I dont want to run into the same problem with cluster thinking it should have air suspension when it hasn't. 


Is this an automatic recognition of functionality by the cluster as PIWIS does not have a coding function for air suspension within the cluster module (although it does within other modules).
