I was checking / fixing fuses, pulling them and putting new that kind of stuff and now my windows do not open and the front light are always on! The fuses are ok but I am wondering if by playing around maybe i messed up a relay or something! I tried to fix the fuses to what they should be, in the past the car ( used ) had fuses too big for what the chart called for, so for example i replaced a 30 for a 10 if a 10 was the one needed etc.
having some issues with locking my cs using the key fob , i can unlock the car fine with the fob but i have to be next to drivers glass to lock the car . i have changed the battery in the fob no luck
the led on the fob goes off when i press the lock button , i have also tried resync the key . has anybody had this similar fault
My 04 Cayenne S has been at the Porsche dealer for just over a month now. I took it there to have a new key programmed into it. I lost my only working keyfob. I was able to copy the blade of my non-working keyfob at a local locksmith. Well, the next day, I get a call that the computer won't take the new key and that a new sensor, immobilizer and keys were needed. Estimate: $1900. Upset, I felt I had no choice and agreed to it. A week later, I get a call that the parts are coming from Germany and it's be sometime next week. As promised, a week later, the parts made it and were installed. Computer still will not learn the factory new keys. I'm told of numerous emails/calls to Porsche tech support over the course of another week. The last time I called to check around the 18th, I'm told that Porsche has discovered a bug with PIWIS v3. Seems that it cannot program keys into a PIWIS v1 vehicle. Now I'm waiting on Porsche to special deliver a working PIWIS v1 computer.
My BS detector is alarming. I would like my Cayenne back, running or not, but I am at a loss on what to do.
Can anyone backup the PIWIS v3 computer story?
What are the odds that my original sensor, immobilizer and key are really fine?
Should I make them reinstall my old parts and try with the PIWIS v1 computer?
The bill should go from around $1900 to $125.
Is there anyone at Porsche I need to make aware of the potential service problems at this dealership?
A little more on the background. They also claim that they have a non-working PIWIS v1 and that Porsche can remote brick the PIWIS computers when a new unit is issued...?? I'm also told that the Durametric cable and software cannot program keys.
Any help or ideas are appreciated.
Troubleshooting a no crank issue; this code came up on the durametric alarm module section.
My alldata documentation goes on to state;
What does this even mean ? An entirely defective door lock module ? Did a previous owner install one from another car ? I don't really understand because the troubleshooting step is just one possible simple solution.
I will carefully test all operation of the door lock and update with another post.
