I have the following symptoms:

 

  1. Change to settings (Comfort) reset to default once car is turned off and locked and unlocked. 
  2.  Time for Clock returns to what was the initial setting on dash and PCM. You can set the clock and drive the car, the clock works until you turn off the car.
  3. PCM returns to radio even when i have selected CDC or CD after restarting the 
  4. Navigation map not showing correct location. the current location shows i am somewhere in Mexico
  5. Date shows 01/01/00. There is no way to change it.

 

Anyone have ideas on what the issue is?

 

Thanks for your help.

Hi,

 

I'm having the same problem with my '04 996 TT.  I have a PCM 2.0 and have not had any success with this problem.  I'm thinking it may be an issue with the GPS antenna ?  That is where

I plan on looking next as it reads that it has registered 0 satellites. I'm Hoping that since the date is not settable that it acquires the date from the GPS system.  Hope to

hear that you got your issue resolved.

Thanks Spence I did, I get a reset on 1-4-8 but no resolution to the issue.  One odd thing of note, I set the clock at 12:50 today, I was doing some other things on the car

I checked back and the time went to 12:49 ....  scratched my head over that one, then the next time I looked at it was 12:56.  I shut the car off and restarted the clock flashed

to 8:43 then went to 12:50 and stayed there ....  odd ...the stem adjust in the dash will affect the time setting in PCM, but neither will allow the clock to run, nor the date to set which I

believe is a function of the NAV.  I have heard two opinions that the sat nav antenna comes loose and one location is passenger side next to the wipers and the other was in the security

led housing I'm trying to pinpoint the location of the antenna as it apparently comes loose.  I'm planning on digging into this tomorrow.

If your going down the GPS antenna route being the issue, one would expect the Nav accuracy on your system would also be compromised. Is this the case?

Thanks for your interest, We've only had the car for a month.  I worked through the typical issues that seem to happen with these cars first.

Spoiler, fogged lights. AC,  etc, now focusing on the NAV.  The nav doesn't report current location, recognizes the nav disk, and has a previous owners

destination address list intact so it worked at some point.  My assumption was that since it registers no satellites it precluded it from functioning

Some people report the antenna located in the area of the pollen filter others under the security dome I haven't really dug into searching for the

antenna yet.  A casual search around the pollen filter came up with nothing, may have to dig deeper removing the trim pieces around the wipers.

Do you have the two battery option?  It sounds like one of them might be dead.  The car will start fine because the second battery is protected from full discharging, but it sounds like your house load battery is failing.  Having an incorrect time can mess with the gps because the gps signals are timed coded, so I think the nav system is a symptom of some other problem.

Hi, sorry for the late response, I just saw this. I didn't know there was a two battery option ?  Would it be located near the main in the front compartment ?

The second is actually located inside/underneath the subwoofer, which is where your spare tire would be. So if you have a spare you probably don't have the sub or the second battery. I think most ctt's have the second battery, along with the upgraded sound and subwoofer. If you remove a few bolts and disconnect the electrical connector, the sub will lift straight out and the battery box will be underneath it. Bad batteries and bad grounds are the main culprits is most electrical issues, especially the ones that seem really complicated or erratic.

      I have an intermittent static issue. It seems to originate from my center speaker near the clock on my dashboard. When the suspension is lowered it it more prevalent but it also happens before I even start my car. There could be weeks between hearing it and other times it will go on for hours. I suspect I have a loose wire in the amplifier? Is this an issue anyone else has ran into?

      Greetings all... Over in the Cayenne section there is a post about the PCM System error: UNKNOWN UNKNOWN UNKNOWN UNKNOWN UNKNOWN UNKNOWN UNKNOWN when starting the system up... no ultimate resolution but the consensus for the cause is a break in the line... I have a 2004 Turbo Cab and installed a MoBridge system and have had ZERO issues.  My Parents have a 2004 Turbo Cab where the previous owner went cheap with either the Nav-Tv adapter, the installation, or BOTH (But when you get an otherwise pristine Turbo Cab with 28,000 miles for $42K, you don't nickel and dime).  The installer unplugged the CD changer and pulled the plug off of the fiber optic wires (that plugged into the changer) using a line break splice to plug the two wires together instead of plugging in a loop per the NAV-TV instructions.  I bought both male and female loops so that I could put the vehicle cables into a new plug and install the other plug with the loop.  Since the issue isn't resolved (but the audio works so this has to be the "break") I have to assume it isn't getting a good connection.  Upon closer examination, the fiber optic cable ends on the loops are gold metal and shorter than the plastic ends in the car loop.  This end difference prevents the plastic ends from seating far enough into the plug to make a good connection.  Any advice on how to either replace the ends, or a part number for the original Porsche plug that I could match with a different loop?  I am thinking that Porsche probably have a plug that goes into the CD Changer MOST connector for vehicles that don't have the changer installed...Thanks!!

      Hey guys and gals I have a 2010 Porsche Cayenne base and I’m having trouble connecting my IPhone 6S Plus to my PCM running software version 1.47. Now I know that Apple phones don’t accept the sim access profile, but I can’t figure out how to switch the PCM over to Hands free profile. I went to my local Porsche dealer here in Tucson, AZ today and  I told them that I had read online that they should be able to switch my PCM from SAP to HFP, but after 1 1/2 hours of trying they said that the couldn’t find how to switch it over. Any suggestions? Can it be changed using a durametric? Should I talk to another dealer in Phoenix? Any suggestion or insight will help. Thanks in advance.

      I replced the CDR23 with Seicane Android HU.  It comes with Canbus adapter and I purchaed MOST adapter with it to make it work with factory Bose amp.
      The unit powers up fine, but the MOST adapter needs to have power to work.  Any suggestion where can I connect the three wires listed in the pic to?  I assume the main socket that was connected to the CDR23 has power, but don’t know which wire is which.  How easy would it be to get power from lighter adapter aux?  I am planning to replace that lighter adapter with USB port for the HU as well.
       
      Thanks

      Can someone validate whether or not the dealer ACTUALLY has to install the PCM 3.0 Nav Update?  Unless there is some voodoo that they have to do with the PIWIS, why do they need 2 hrs of labor to insert a disc and press "enter" a few times??  Seems a waste if you can read directions...  Thanks for any help.
