Here’s my dilemma. Two days ago the dealer shipped the cayenne I bought. The driver drove the suv onto the carrier and even started it yesterday. Today when it got there it wouldn’t start. We boosted it and it even changed the battery. It will not start. The electric parking brake light is blinking on the dash and on the switch. When I turn the key nothing happens. The stereo, signals, interior lights, locks and unlocks all work. The remote fob works too. But the horn, headlights, and the heater controls do not work. Could the pyro link be blown?

Checked all the fuses and the pyro this morning. Still no go. They couldn't get it off the carrier to back to the dealer in Ontario it goes. Someone told me they had the exact same problem and it was the ignition switch.

I couldn't get the cover off to get at it. But I tried to jump it while it was in but it didn't work. I ended up shipping the SUV back to Ontario. It's going to Porsche there tomorrow. Hopefully its something simple then ship it back.

Absolutely! I don't know if I'm on the hook for it. I paid for the suv but didn't sign the acceptance when it hit Winnipeg. The ship back was $1200. Then the repair and $800 to ship back.

Update. It wasn't the ignition switch. Now they are tracing out the wiring for a broken wire. If nothing is found then they are going to try a new bcm.

So they don’t know and don’t have any codes..

Well at least you definitely are not paying for shipping nor the repair.

Keep the updates coming. This is interesting!

Can’t wait for you to get your vehicle back.

I don't even know if I want it back. I'll know more tomorrow afternoon. I will post the next update when I get it. Is there an inherit problem with the electrical on the 92A?

Still not running. They received the bcm the other day but didn't have it installed yesterday. I'm going to call tomorrow. I know the dealer that sold me the vehicle is pissed off. I'm waiting to see of he is just going to refund me. I'll update again soon.

Well they got it running. New BCM, new key, new key switch. Now the rear solenoid for the parking brake is locked. They are replacing the brakes too. Hopefully I will see it soon.

Oh my it just keeps getting better. Porsche of London is saying they have all the brake parts but get this. The service manager said there is no brake shoes available in world. Porsche part or aftermarket. Really? Then what's this? https://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/porsche,2013,cayenne,3.0l+v6+diesel+turbocharged,1504586,brake+&+wheel+hub,parking+brake+shoe,10177

Maybe with the current world events there is a shortage?

They sure are putting a lot of new parts on for you.

The parking brake function is performed by the rear brakes not a separate brake pad.

So it makes sense they want to replace the pads.

They are only changing the solenoid and the shoes as far as I know. But the service manager said the parts were discontinued. Not out of stock.
