Ok, so here's the story. AC was working perfect. Out of the blue, zzzzzz no air. Nothing! Just dead :drive:.

 

Durametric Pro says typical code 353: "Feedback from blower regulator front, value below lower limit value"

Battery was replaced as it was giving me a hard time... It was replaced 2 days ago...

 

There's no voltage to the plug that goes to the blower...

No voltage to the blower blue regulator behind the glove box [plug with dual wires brown and black]...

post-41858-0-21491400-1429399796_thumb.j

 

Fuses are all perfect on the engine bay, right side, left side and even I checked the ones under the driver's seat that I didn't know there was a 40A and a 5A fuses when the battery was replaced. Curious thing is that I tested voltage delivered to fuse 57 and it was 10.38 volts....

 

All these tests were performed with the Cayenne running and AC fan at all different speeds.

 

I think I made a so far good troubleshooting but, don't know where else to look... I also checked the wiring diagrams, but feel kind of lost -_-   . I also made a search here at :renntech: but not as far as I have gone in the troubleshooting...

 

 

Any more ideas? :help:  :lightbulb:  :thankyou:

The red/yellow wire at the blower should always have 12 volts on it.

The black wire on the blower goes to ground through the regulator.

Try measuring from the red/yellow wire to a chassis ground and see If you get any voltage.

You can also put a fused jumper wire from the black motor wire to a chassis ground and see if the motor works. This will bypass the regulator and give you a clue if it's regulator or motor issues.

Tested... Thanks Bigbuzuki for your fast response!

 

Red/Yellow cable against chassis = 0.00v; Black cable continuity test to chassis = No continuity; Passenger Foot well light 12v against blower black cable 10.47 volts. Those 10.47v seems almost the same coming from fuse  57 which was 10.38v give or take... So regulator delivers the power to the fuse 57 and the fuse 57 to the fan blower?

You should have power to fuse 56.

Fuse 56 is for the front blower.

Fuse 57 is for the rear blower if fitted.

The red yellow wire takes power from fuse 56 to the blower plug. Is there power at the plug now?

Sorry I'll have to check tomorrow. It's quite late here... But even as that I haven't perform any changes, so I guess is the same status...

If you do have power at both terminals of fuse 56 and no power at the plug as measured from red/yellow and chassis, you must have a broken red/yellow wire from the fuse 56 to the plug.

I'll check for continuity, but still that's a heavy gauge cable... So it's very difficult to be broken since that are was not touch at all... I also checked BROWN cable of the regulator against ground and nothing... Weird thing is that BROWN cable against GROUND had continuity... Also, from the diagrams, I noticed that pin #B2, fan control I guess is the blue colored regulator, is the voltage feedback... Wild case could say that the regulator is fried and no voltage feedback could be received by the Durametric... I guess, by a 75%, regulator is fried...

 

Also noticed that the area surrounding the regulator, a.k.a. the whole enchilada [condenser, filter, etc.], was very, very cold so it's frozen the AC internally...

 

Bigbuzuki, still thanks! I noticed that this post have been a one-on-one troubleshooting guide :jump:

      List Mates, I have a 2002 996 c4. When my Air conditioner compressor is activated the volume of air coming out of the vents is decreased dramatically.  It still blows cold but just very very low volume or amount. I have had it recharged , checked leaks , replaced condensors etc but nothing changes. As soon as you switch the ac off ( snowflake button) the volume of air through the vents goes right back up.  Volume of air is fine on heat , defrost etc.  I have never had this issue with any other vehicle. Any ideas as to what the problem may be?

      I had to disconnect the passenger side door airbag as part of door panel removal, to replace the door lock mechanism. To check that I replaced the part correctly, I reconnected the battery and turned the ignition key, and got an "Airbag Failure" warning. The fault didn't clear even after disconnecting the battery, reconnecting the airbag and closing up the door panel, and reconnecting the battery.  I confirmed the airbag was reconnected.  I suspect that it may be a "latched' fault that can only be cleared via the Durametric tool - thoughts?

      I'm unable to connect to the engine module on my '09 Cayenne with my new Durametric cable.  I called tech support for an assist and was told that they are still working on coding to allow for connecting the 957 to the engine module.  The Durametric website  does list the MED9 for V6 as being available for reading/clearing codes.  Wondering if anyone else has found a way to get this to work.  I'm using version 6 software.

      My car is a 2005 911 base model 997.
      I had a tune installed and am having some issues with it. I only had the tune done because I put high flow cats on the car and had a stumble. The tune company is wanting a data log with the following actual values.
      1. Engine RPM
      > 2. Injection Time/Injection PW
      > 3. Ignition Angle
      > 4. Pedal Position
      > 5. Actual Throttle Plate Angle
      > 6.Actual Lambda Value Bank 1
      > 7. Mean Fuel Trim Bank 1
      > 8. Actual Lambda Value Bank 2
      > 9. Mean Fuel Trim Bank 2

      I started out trying to get this done with Durametric. The first obstacle I ran into was Durametric did not have compatibility with the variant on my ECU. I called their support and they were able to quickly get this resolved. The problem that I have now is that I don't have any actual values for the Actual Lamda Value for Bank 1 or Bank 2. Durametric basically told me that they have nothing to do with the values and if its not in there they can't help me.
      The following is all the Actual Values in Durametric that I have to choose from.
      1.      AC pressure

      2.      Actual Camshaft angle bank 1

      3.      Actual Camshaft angle bank 2

      I am looking for other means to get a quality data log. I have just purchased an ODBlink MF wi-fi unit. I also have a few phone apps like Torque Pro, OBDdoctor pro, and OBDLink. The problem I am having is they have several Lambda PID's to choose from and am not sure witch ones to use.

      If anyone has suggestions it would be greatly appreciated.  even if the solution is using a totally different data logger.
