Greetings,

 

Short Version:

 

Clock keeps resetting itself to 1:11 PM. It will progress in time for as many as 17 minutes, before resetting. Any thoughts on what causes this clock behavior?

 

Full Detail:

 

Our 2004 Cayenne S had varying electrical "ghosts" since we bought it, used, in April 2014. I finally tracked it down to the ground points MB22 and MB23 both having loose nuts. The grounds for all attached electrical components was intermittent, especially in high humidity conditions. For the record, the primary symptom that led to diagnosing the loose ground was the cabin air conditioning/heating system completely losing power. Using the diagram: Wiring Diagram - 25 - Ground points left-hand drive - 9PAAE1 - 2004 - 4, I was able to isolate the ground points. That was resolved in December 2014.

 

Ever since then, the clock keeps resetting to 1:11 PM (or 13:11). All three clocks -- on the radio, near the speedometer, and on the AC/Heat control unit -- display the same behavior. Sometimes one clock will reset just before the others, but only moments before. The clocks are obviously synchronized somewhere.

 

As part of troubleshooting this issue, I replaced the battery under the driver's seat around October 2015. The car contained the original factory battery, prior to that replacement.

 

Any thoughts? Can anyone explain, or point me to the documentation on, how the clock system works? For example, what ultimately controls the "current time" how are all three clocks interlinked?

 

 

- PJ

      Hello, I have 2004 cayenne s that I’ve been tracing down leaks in. I noticed that on the air intake tube near the air filter, there is a round metal clip that attaches two separate tubes together. Not the hose clamp style, but a spring clip that just pops on. I can’t find any info on buying these anywhere. Does anyone know the part number for these? Thanks.

      Just wanted to say thanks to the community helped answer some questions about the scoring on my 2008 CTT 957. My next question is, does anyone know where I may purchase a complete engine seals and gasket kit for a 2008 Cayenne Turbo? Or if these are unavailable as a whole unit, had anyone rebuilt their engine from the cylinder scoring or something similar and have a parts list of required seals and gaskets which need changed? Additionally, are there any other suggestions on parts that I should change some I'll have the motor apart? Anything would help at this point. Thanks

      I have a 2004 Cayenne S. I just got it recently, interior lights have never worked. I checked the fuse and it was blown. It calls for a 20 amp fuse but the blown one in it was a 25 amp. I had the key in the ignition if I remember correctly and put the new 20 amp fuse in and everything came on. Side note, I noticed a weird glitch with the light above the rear passenger side door and the switch on the main map reading light. The interior lights had gone off and I turned the back on and the backlight above to passenger side door was very dim. I slid the switch on the overhead console for the main map light and the rear light came back to full strength. I found that odd. Everything then worked fine. I took the key out. Next time I put the key in, immediately heard the fuse blow. Any ideas on where to start?

      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?
