Hi. I just changed the instrument cluster on my 2008 Cayenne. The cluster was from the same year Cayenne, but I'm having issues now.
First off, I now have "TPMS System not active" warning on my cluster, even though I have TPMS sensors installed on my car and was working just fine before the swap out other than that, everything works as it should be.
I tried to code it on Durametric, but the current coding section for tire pressure is blank and I cannot make any changes. This is the same on the Electrical System module.
I ran the fault codes and this is what I have:

Instrument Cluster:
1229: Gateway - No signal/communication
459: PCM2 - No signal/communication

Gateway:
1336: CAN comfort OFF
459: PCM2

Tire Pressure Monitor (TPM)
1042: Control module not coded


Can anybody help me with this?

 

Edit: So far, I tried clearing the codes (but immediately comesback) and I tried to reset the cluster by removing and replacing fuse #40

Welcome to RennTech:welcomeani:

 

You need to use a PIWIS and code the new cluster to the car, otherwise you are going to be looking fault codes forever...……...

Thank you.

 

Is there a way to do this without PIWIS or PST2? Anyway that can be done with Durametric or VCDS (pins-bridged)?

 

If I happen to go to the dealer about this matter, what should I tell them? Should I be honest and tell them everything I did and tried? or just play dumb and let them figure it out?

No, you need the PIWIS.  Tell them what you have done, and what problems you are having, they can take it from there.

I just talked to the dealer but he isn't sure what he has to do to correct it. Apparently he will go through trial and error to figure out the fix.

 

Do you perhaps know what menu (in PIWIS), and where, and what exactly has to be done?

He was probably a service writer, not a technician, so he drew a blank.  The codes you have above from your Durametric tell the story; just take that data with you and the tech will be able to get the necessary coding done in short order.  Good luck.
