New to the forum as an active member!!! This is my first post so excuse me for any mistakes. To the problem now. I have a Cayenne 2008 GTS with 380,000km !!!!!!!!!!!!! On saturday i washed the car and since then various problems started appearing. I noticed that the car wouldn't lock with the remote nether unlock so i thought to my self that it is the remote battery despite the fact that i had no warning on the cluster.
Next day morning i tried starting the car and it started fine but the "Check Tailights" warning came on. Got off the car to check the lights and they didn't work. I tried opening the boot to check the bulbs and i discovered that the rear lid wouldn't open either.Also as soon as the car starts the Alarm starts singing, not very loud though ( if my car was to be stollen i wouldn't hear the alarm, thats how low volume it was)
So besides the locking and unlocking problem, taillights the rear lid problem appeared.
I thought that it might be a fuse so i checked all fuses. Left and right fusebox and the one in the engine bay. All the fuses were ok. I plugged in the Durametric Proffessional cable and i come up with the fault code "1330 Rear convenience system control module - No signal/communication, test conditions are not-completed, fault is not currently active and is not causing a DTC light"
I did a lot of online searching but couldn't find anything specific. My guess is that i need a new Vehicle Electrical System Control unit. Any ideas? Has anything similar happened to anyone? I am out of ideas and the Dealership here in Cyprus is no option. I used to work for them :) so i know whats going on!!!!!!!!!!
Any info would be greatly appeciated!!!!
P.S. Hope my post is ok. Dont want to be banned on my first post!!!!
Good evening everyone,
I'm new at using forums so excuse me if I am not posting in the correct location but I really need some advice and assistance.
I live just outside of Waco, TX and last Thursday as I was driving my son to school down I-35 we hear a loud boom, almost like a gun went off. My son looks up and see and hears the glass has broken on the sunroof (not the entire panaoramic just the front part). There were no cars around us, nothing hit us nor did we hit the sunroof from within, it basically self exploded like it was under immense pressure as the glass went up instead of down. Thankfully the suncreen netting caught some of the glass but there was damage to the body/paint on the rear section of the roof. I was warm in our garage 75 degrees +/- but the outside temps were low 40's high 30's that morning then the sun came out in force so not sure that had anything to do with it, cabin pressure, etc. Now here is the issue. I call Park Place Porsche in Dallas where we bought our last 3 Cayenne's they send a tow truck to pick it up that morning, do not hear from them until 7pm tonight and I am not happy. They are telling me since their service tech manager cannot figure out how this happened they will not warranty it....REALLY? So they can deny warranty because they can't explain it? Now I am set to call and talk to the service manager and/or the head of the dealership because I'm not buying it, I've done my research over the weekend and this has become a big issue with sunroofs over the years and it's not an unknown thing (even though they are playing dumb). What can I do?
I wonder if anyone reads these.... I am hopeful. :)
I have a 2008 Cayenne GTS with an awesome manual transmission. I can not find much of anything on when to replace the transmission fluid... nor how to replace the fluid. I am quite familiar with the automatic transmission fluid change (in my previous CTTS), there is next to no documentation on the manual GTS.
I have searched google and the forums for some answer or clue.... nadda. So any help would be greatly appreciated.
Noob here, shopping for a 996. I have now seen two for-sale 2002 vehicles on the big websites with 911 badging on the rear instead of the expected Carrera. When I encountered the first I thought it was simply a previous user's change, but two of the same year?? I know the 2004 40th anniversary should have this but does anyone know if any 2002's did? And if so if it an indication of any option? I have not visited the cars to examine their options stickers yet. Thanks!
In the UK, owners have received two quasi recall letters, one in December 2012 and one in May 2013.
The December letter and "Additional Information" are attached:
The May one is basically the same as December's (which was to GT2/3 owners) except that it now seems to also have been sent to GTS owners but with no free upgrade.
Is this the same approach as for other sales territories (USA, Germany etc)?
