    Radio Music System Question

    Love my P-car. 06CS w Nav/Bose/rest of performance extras. But---the radio/CD player has periodic problems. Yesterday, while listening to a CD, the radio came on. Screen still noted the CD. Did it three times in about 30 minutes. Sometimes ,I cannot move to the next song on the CD- via < > buttons. Have to reboot. I have had it in several times and they said "no problem". Good dealer, but they just don't see/hear the problem for the short time they have the car.
    thanks for your thoughts/suggestions,

    First off, please, I'm begging everybody, no more "I've got the perfect solution to your problem, simply turn off your radio and put down your windows for the most beautiful music blah blah blah" BAAAAARRRRFFFFF!!!!

    Now, to your query. Yep, my '05 is also a tad eccentric. Most common malady is I turn the car off with the radio playing... Start it back up the next morning, it plays my CD... It always wants to default to CD (must like the Foo Fighters I've had in it for awhile now..). But I've never had it switch mid-drive...

    Re: Radio Music System Question -- No Interest?

    thanks for the comments. I agree, that the fix for this is not "roll down your windows and enjoy the engine sounds..."

    Before I put it in storage, I'm going to have another shot at the Dealer (Twin Cities) to see if they can troubleshoot. Still under warranty , and I worry that this is a cat and mouse game. There is definite internal crosstalk causing problems. I'm surprised that others are not having similar issues and the lack of interest in a fix. I might have a lemon system??

    thanks again,

    Re: Radio Music System Question -- No Interest?

    If they cannot figure it out quickly enough, it sounds like Porsche should just replace the PCM with a new one, and see if that fixes the bugs ... and if so, they can then post-mortem the removed PCM on their own time.

    Re: Radio Music System Question

    Do you have TA/TP traffic announcement switched on on your Radio? Some radio stations may activate TA/TP flag even when no traffic bulletin is being broadcasted at all( very annoying and quite frequent in Italy...). When this happens radio comes automaticaly on and you cannot operate your Radio/CD until announcement is over or until you turn off this function.
    It might be your case.

    No, Teies29, thats not it. Unfortunately, the USA has never had the benefit of traffic announcement flags on radio broadcast. I enjoyed that technology back in the 80's in Germany... but 25 years later, no go in the US still. Not that it would matter, because the traffic status is so bad in many markets that as a driver, you cannot figure out easily where the 'issues' are relative to you without getting out a map, because of how they describe the location.. and even if you knew, there are usually few alternate routes, at least in the places I've lived in the US.

    My 2005 does the exact same thing. Every time I am in for service I mention it and they always tell me they can't duplicate the fault. I would guess that 70% of the time when I drive the car (when it has been sitting for a while) the CD starts even though I was playing the radio when I turned the car off. The PCM system is buggy. In my 2005 Cayenne it has got crazy several times and the only way I could fix it was to completed stop the car, turn off the engine, remove the key, exit the car and re-enter and try again.

    Re: Radio Music System Question

    Well at least I'm not alone.... I figure if this is my only eccentricity with the car, I'm in good shape!!!

    Murphy's Law dictates that if I took the car in and tried to get it fixed, they'd fix it, and proceed to break 3 new things, damage a 4th, and several days later I'd find a puddle of oil under my car....

    Better not to tempt Murphy...

    Re: Radio Music System Question

    So maybe its set up to autoplay if there is a cd in the player after a certain timeout?

    For what its worth, on my 1994 VW Golf, the radio remembers perfectly whether I was playing the radio or a cassette tape. I guess those are features you only get on a $14,000 car

    You could even have written "35 years later", because that technology has been available in Europe since the 70s. It's weird that it was never adopted in the USA.
    I guess that also means that I won't be able to use the traffic warning feature integrated into my TomTom Satnav if I use it on rental cars in the USA.
