Passenger Window closing

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone this is my first post, please be gentle:)

 

And here I am desperate after about a days worth of trying to figure out the problem

 

Cayman 2007.

 

Basically the story is:

The car battery was empty, to the point it did not start. I called the dealer, they picked up the car and they changed the battery. When i got the car back, when the passenger door opens the door goes down 10cm but when the door is closed it doesnt go up again.

 

I called the dealer they put the car on the diagnostic and they told me that the problem is probably a vary small part on the locking mechanism of the door but they can only change the whole mechanism, quote $600. I said thank you and left.

 

I assumed its the door latch microswith. So i took the door appart, check the microswitch on the door latch, it was working, I gave it a good clean anyway and i put it back, problem pressist.

 

I though maybe its a problem with the connection inside the latch? Anyone knows the pinout of the latch so I can check without dissasembling it?

Maybe its the main door connector? Anyone knows the pinout there?

Anyone has any other ideas in general?

 

Thank you from the lovely island of Cyprus,

Yiangos

You are reporting that the glass drops 10 cm, normally it should be aprox. 10 mm. Either you are mistaken regarding the mesurement or there is something more going on, the window mechanism is still working with the switches? no unusual noise?

10mm sorry, yes the switch works normal as always, thats why i though maybe there is a pinout problem. question is were does the actual microswitch signal goes

Try to relearn the window(s), with the doors closed, first. If this does not help, a PIWIS diagnostic device is recommanded, it may well be an error in the door handles microswitches.

I tried so, i have checked the microswitches themselfs and they work. i dont know were they go thow, i mean the wires maybe there is a damaged wire somewere or the main door connector? is there a way to get a wiring diagram?

 

PIWIS diagnostic means going back to the dealler right?

not that:( i checked

I am let to believe its a problem with the regulator controller. I am going to take it to the dealer for a diagnostic

ok so apparently the diagnostic concluded the same as me, that the window controller needs replacement.

As the fault was presented after a replacement of a flat battery can i argue that it was caused due to an electrostatic discharge (or something similar) and therefor that the part has simply not faded over time(as the workshop manager tried to persuade me)?

 

Thank you,

Yiangos

      Some background:
      I just finished installing a Kenwood Head Unit and used the Kit210/ M.O.S.T HUR 997 module. The installation is not for the faint of heart. I have installed many radios and worked on mods to my previous Porsche's. This took some serious investigation and decoding to see what wires need to be attached to wires in the harnesses. To some extent I was fortunate that the previous owner had an after market unit installed, but had remove nearly everything.
       
      Everything works:
      Backup camera
      Navigation ( I located the GPS antenna way back under the plastic cowling between the Battery and Cabin Filter)
      Radio
      Phone (tried to locate the mic in the location of the factory mic, but proved to be too difficult for now. Located to left of the radio bezel by removing the small piece of dash and positioning the clip under that.
      Volume and Chanel rotary dials on the Steering wheel multi use buttons.
       
      Now the problems left over:
      The Phone buttons don't seem to do anything. I need to use the buttons on the radio when placing/receiving calls. This is not major but would like everything to work as well as if a factory head unit was install. Again, it seems that the steering wheel switches are recognized, but not the phone buttons.
       
      Is this maybe something that needs to be programmed in?
       
      Thanks,

      Hi there, my Cayenne is telling me my driver's side door is open when it is not. This is causing the dome light to stay on. Not sure what the issue is and if can be fixed easily. Any info given is greatly appreciated, thanks!

      Hi Porsche Gurus
      I’m trying to troubleshoot a little issue I have that just my drivers door courtesy lights (and drivers sunvisor light but not sure if that’s different issue) don’t work, both the red and white ones and only the one door(rhd car) 
      now ive checked the common things like all the fuses and the wiring to see if they were damaged or corroded but they seem fine,
      The one thing I would like to check but can not find any info on is where or what is the switch or sensor that tells the lights that the door is open to turn the lights on? 
      If I can find that then that will at least eliminate all manual fixes that I can think of unless any of you have come across this before, if it’s something simple and I look like a fool for not thinking of it then I’m happy to be a fool as long as the lights work:)
      any help would be much appreciated 
      thanks

      Several people have told me that the 996 Dual Sender Oil Pressure Switch/Sensor will directly replace the 987-1 Oil Pressure Switch. Can you please confirm this and provide the part number. I would guess it is 996-606-203-03 but, I would like to be sure.
       
      Additionally, if I am running an AIM dash, should I run the pressure lead to the switch input on the ECU and get the pressure data from the CAN bus or, just leave the switch lead attached and run the pressure lead straight to an analog I/O on the AIM dash.
       
      Thanks, Tim

      Hey everyone, i own a 2010 porsche Boxter 2.9L with the PDK transmission.. yesterday after leaving the car for a 4 days i started it and went for a drive.. when i turned it on again, i got a warning message “emergency transmission run” and the car became very jerky through gearshifts and wouldnt accelerate properly.. after turning it on and off the message went away and it drove just fine but then it kept re-appearing mid drives and becomes very jerky and clunky...ive noticed since i had the car that the gearbox was sometimes clunky or would make a noise when changing gear but the dealership said that was fine and normal since its a PDK, the car is at 59,000km so its time for a transmission fluid change... could this be a low voltage problem, or transmission fluid? The reverse gear works just fine.. has this happened to any other owners?
