Hello Guys, 

 

I got my 2014 Cayenne Platinum edition and it seems that the remote unlock and locking mechanism using my key fob does not work unless i am close to the vehicle, range is i would say 5 feet. 

I tried to change the batteries on the key fob but issue still there, is there anything else i am missing or is it a design issue by Porsche that they corrected on a later versions ? 

 

Thank you,

      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.

      Background:
      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.
       
      Questions:
      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.
