So did you find the VW/Audi equivalent? I think I saw the Bosch fan for ~$350

FIXED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

it was the fan.  So for future reference of anyone looking.  Even if you measure voltage on the signal pins it doesnt mean the signal is incorrect.

 

Also for reference.  the VW touareg fan works.....it needs to be the non tow package fan(600w vs 800w).  Bought mine for 150 bucks with a lifetime warranty!

 

Feeling pretty good right now!

 

For reference here are all the models the fan came in:

Hello Everyone

Not meaning to bump up this old thread, But i recently experienced the same issue.

This is my first post ever on this forum, in fact I created an account to share my solution for this  :thumbup:

I drive a 2005 Porsche Cayenne S.

What I did was disconnect and reconnect the battery (underneath the driver's seat), and all went back to normal (it's been one week).

I haven't tried to check the car with a durametric, maybe a simple fault code reset might have worked.

I suggest doing so (takes about 20 minutes), and see what happens, It's not going to harm your car in any way

 

Strictly follow Instructions on replacing the battery in the user manual.

Please wear safety equipment, or have an electrician do this for you.

 

After reconnecting the battery, warnings for PSM, ABS, and air suspension might show. They can be cleared with a durametric or by simply driving for a few miles.

 

Best regards Everyone, and see you in other posts

      Hi all,
      I have noticed that after my last service at the dealer the engine runs about 8 degrees warmer (about 220f) and the rear fan runs for extended periods after I shut the engine off. The oil pressure also seems to be lower than it was before the service, which included oil change, coolant flush, and coolant replacement. Any ideas on why this might be happening would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

      Hello, I'm new on this forum and stumbled upon a new problem (or old) with my 2.5l 986 Boxster from 1997.
       
      The problem occurs when the engine is started dead cold after sitting a few hours/overnight.
       
      Engine starts immediately but the RPMs start to surge / hunt between 1100 and 700 RPM. This continues for about 10 seconds after which the idle smoothes out to the normal cold idle RPM. 
       
      The first pull away requires a tad more throttle then normal to prevent stalling. After this first pull, everything is almost normal and engine performance becomes better and better. When the engine is hot, the idle sits at 780 RPM with a minor fluctuation now and then (seems to be more than normal)
       
      I've been to two shops (official Porsche dealer and local Porsche specialist). Porsche dealer couldn't find anything and the specialist found the camshaft sensor on the left bank to be unplugged - but now comes the strange thing - the cabling is nowhere to be found!!!!!!? Took the car home to check myself but didn't find anything.
       
      No camshaft related codes to be found in the diagnosis and no CEL either. 
       
      Attached one pic showing the sensor and it's missing plug
       
      Could someone help me out? - Is it possible for the engine not to throw a CEL when sensor is disconnected? - where is the sensor wire to be found?

      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?

      Hi, I'd like to ask a question that has been asked, discussed, youtube videoed etc...  My apologies, but I've read most of them and haven't found anything similar.  I'm looking at a 2004-2006 Cayenne Turbo that I don't want to turn into an engine money pit.  I've listened to 8, all cold and most have a very slight knock on the drivers side of the engine.  I'm wondering if this is the beginning to the end or some explainable sound.  You can only hear it once it drops to a low idle.  I went to my local dealer in Denver and they stated they have no way to diagnose, would not perform a new car inspection, but would do a compression check.  I realize this is tough to know when the dreaded engine knock may come due to extreme cold, piston expansion, etc...etc...  I'm also aware that the turbos were less prone.  If I'm going to drop a new engine into an old cayenne, I'd rather do it on a $10k one than $18k which is the present range for a 2004-2005 in CO.  Thanks for anyone's help and as a newbie, I hope to purchase a Cayenne and give back via DIY but don't really want to deal with engine issues for 200k+.  Thanks again, Frank

      I have a 2004 C2 CAB with 120K miles.  I am getting bits of black foam material coming from the air vents and from under the dash.  Where is this coming from? and how can I fix it?  I was told there is a foam "pad" on the air flow box under located under front hood near battery.
