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 ?
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
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.
I have a problem on the passenger side of my Boxster S 2000 that makes the car unable to lock and passenger window to not drop when grabbing the handles (either outside or inside). Sometimes the window drops from both the outside and inside door handle and then it also works to lock the car, but must often it doesn't work. When you try to lock with the remote it locks and then unlocks immediately and double honks. The door button light on the panel is also lit red (even while driving).
If you lock with the key on the drivers door it locks but not the passenger door. After a couple of hours the alarm goes off. After this happens the passenger door and windows works and I can lock the car with the remote. I suppose the car get a contact with the passenger door again and realizeses that it's unlocked?
I had the exact same problem last year after taking the door panel off and forgetting to reconnect the inside microswitch. When connecting it again the lock and window worked the rest of the year and so it did for a short while after taking it out again after the winter. I have checked that the microswitch is connected now.
So far I have checked that both outside and inside switch are connected. I have also removed the door lock mechanism. The microswitch on the outside, that as far as I understand check if the door is open or not, seem fine to me. I have opened the alarm module under the driver seat (LHD car) and it's like new on the inside so it shouldn't be water damage or something like that. When doing this I also replaced the fuse on the alarm module. I have also cleaned all the connections I have disconnected with electronic cleaner.
Now I'm completely out of ideas. What should I try next? Is there any point to buy a new door lock mechanism even though the switch look fine to my eye? Or could it even be just the window micro switches i should replace?
Any help is really appreciated.
