2010 Cayman Base Won't Move


Recommended Posts

Engine shut off at low speed going up a parking ramp yesterday, restarted no problem didn't happen again.

This morning go to leave the house and put it drive and . . . nothing.

Will not move, warning on the screen says "Transmission emergency run", not sure if that's a suggestion to walk away from the car or what.

Check engine is on of course.

Attached are the codes from the PDK module.

Any advise would be appreciated.

Hello,

 

Have you been able to solve your "Transmission emergency run" problem?

 

I have a 987.2 Cayman S and, after a full service on the PDK transmission (oil change for both the hydraulic and mechanical sides and replacement of the filter/carter), I have tried to do a clutch calibration procedure using the iCarsoft 3.0 with Porsche extension.

 

I probably didn't wait long enough and now the car is just like what you describe: engine runs but it won't move when I shift in D or R and I get the "Transmission emergency run" message.

 

Any help on the details of how to execute the clutch calibration procedure is very welcome!

 

Have a good week-end

Welcome to RennTech :welcomeani:

If the iCarsoft unit can actually do anything with the PDK, this is the first I have heard of it.  Several diagnostic companies have claimed to be able to work on the PDK, but to my knowledge, the only system that actually can without creating problems is the factory PIWIS system.

I am afraid that you might be right.

 

I have been very satisfied with the iCarsoft 3.0 Porsche so far, being able to activate actuators one by one allowed me to debug some gremlins in the car. It also gives access to the "PIWIS report" information: number of hours on the engine (to check if the average speed is plausible) and number of impulsions at the different rpms.

 

This is what led me to use the "Clutch teach-in process"… and got me in trouble. I have re-run the whole process this morning leaving it over 30' to make sure it had enough time to complete and although the system says "Routine completed", I still have the P1871 DTC "Data record for clutch calibration is invalid".

 

Clearly, I need someone with a PIWIS to redo the calibration.

Unfortunately, several diagnostic companies have made claims that their tools can do things on Porsche's that they clearly cannot, and quite often calls the companies making the claims result in the tool owner being told that a specific function is only for certain model years, or that it will be "added in a future upgrade" that ultimately never happens.  Porsche has always used a proprietary diagnostic logic system that has been very hard to crack or duplicate.  Durametric has probably come the closest with perhaps 80-85% functionality, but even they cannot do the PDK, and say as much on the subject.
