Hi I just bought a cayenne 3.2 V6 2006 base model, on my way home car was running fine, 

second day morning went to put some gas and after getting home car idle was rough Stop the engine and start back on now the car start goes to 1000 rpm for 5 seconds and then start shaking going to 500 rpm or less for about 30 seconds then car it self try to correct and goes to 1100 rpm for the same 5 seconds and then back to the bad idle.

If i press de gas pedal right after the start car goes fine without any issue to 4000 rpm for the same 5 seconds and then complete loose the power, back to the 500 Or less rpm. When the car try's  to correct back to the 1000rpm I can gas up to the 4000 rpm fine, is like a loop.

 

I have a Autel Scaner shows 1 code in the getaway

code 532 power supply 

 

what i have done:

new battery

new coils and spark plugs 

check fuel pump all good 

check the spark in the coils 

fix 2 vacuum pipes 

 

I have no idea of what else I live in Panama and I'm 600 miles away from the only Porsche dealer. I'm a mecanic but out of ideas now any help will be much appreciated 

thanks

First thing to do is check your alternator. The voltage is way too low and the code 532 is for low voltage.

I would guess your alternator regulator is broke and also causing the idle problems as well. 

Charging voltage should be 13.7- 14.2 volts.

I check the charging voltage and is 14v when the car goes to lower rpm the voltage goes to 12.5 or so. But I did separate fuel pump test and I have in one pump pressure unstable starts in 60 psi then goes as down as 20 psi (in that point is where the car whant's to stop and when the pump goes back to 60 psi the car goes to normal rpm yesterday I ordered today I'm going to replace it I let you know

This must be the left pump then?

 

So likely the rough rpm is causing the alternator to also deliver under voltage. Well see if the fuel pump replacement does the trick. Best of luck.

In deed I replace the left pump now the car it doesn't dies, is much better but now when I'm driving it (now I can at least) it looses power and get like stuck, I'm replacing the right pump and crossing my fingers to finally fix the issue 

the whole forum is great and it has been a great Place to look for information

You might consider replacing the fuel filter and possibly the regulator if when tested it doesn't hold 3 bar after ten mins of being switched off.

      I have a 2009 957 3.6l v6 Cayenne. The battery was dead a few days ago so I replaced it. It now starts up just as it should but when run a diagnostic it says the alternator voltage is high reading 14.72. I’m assuming I need to replace the alternator to remedy this. I can’t find any information about replacing the alternator. Has anyone attempted this? It looks like it might be straightforward  but my concern is whether or not the intake manifold has to be removed in order to get clear access. If anyone has any insight on this I would greatly appreciate it.

      Does anyone have a wiring diagram for the seat on a 2008/957 Cayenne which they can let me have?

      I’m trying to chase a fault where the passenger seat will motor up and down and the backrest will adjust forward and aft, but there is no response from the controls to move the seat unit forwards and backwards, or the four-way lumber support control.
       
      Thanks in anticipation...

      My front wheel was making a rattling noise for about the last week, and this morning as I drove out of my driveway and turned the wheel, I could hear a loud popping noise coming from my wheel whenever I turned. My best guess is that I drove over a pothole and the control arm / bushing moved out of place. Would this be covered under the OE warranty? Or should I take it to a mechanic?

      Hi All
      I was fairly sure that my erratic idling on my 2000 model Boxster S - never less than 1100 r/min and often shooting up intermittently to 2000 r/min - was caused by a dirty throttle body or  MAF sensor. After cleaning the TB it made no difference and having caused an air leak on one of the rubber sleeves where it attaches to the plenum, I decided to give the job to my local specialist.
      The problem was resolved by repairing a hole in the brake vacuum hose, caused by the hose chaffing against the bodywork.
      I suppose that with 19 years under its belt and 147000 km I could expect something like this. The brakes work better too - less muscle required to stop the beast!
