My car is a 2004 CayenneS (US model). 

 

I bought the Durametric Software hoping that I can perform some basic engine diagnostic.  Not so true!

Watching some of the postings on youtube to what you can do with Durametric was so cool but when it comes to mine, it ain't so.

 I want to do some "output" test, for example, turning on/off the coolant fan, sec fans, blower, etc...  the software for my model car will not support such test as I was told by Durametric Rep.! Bummer! 

Of course there are other ways to test all the components I mentioned above but that was not my point.  Oh well, now I have a Durametric which just read/reset the fault code like a $35 generic code reader!  

Am I the unlucky one?

Some Porsche models use a Siemens DME that runs on odd software, limiting what the Durametric system, and many other systems, can do with them.  Models with the more conventional DME work just fine with the Durametric system.  With time, hopefully workarounds will come out, but that is the nature of these cars

Older cayenne can do output test, I've definitely done a few things with my Durametric and 955TT: http://www.durametric.com/modelfeaturematrixv6.aspx#955 

 

Newer (958) cayenne Durametric support is very lacking. I've been using Launch X431 Diagun IV for that which offers much better coverage on newer models.
