    Cayenne Dead Need Help!

    My 2004 Cayenne TT refuses to start. The screen is red and says Steering Faulty and beeps. The shifter is locked. Car had to be put in neutral from below to be towed. Since ignition wont come on diagnostics cannot be run. Tech thought it might be ignition switch but changing that did not work. He is out of ideas and car has been dead since Thurs. Need some serious HELP!!

    I know this sound stupid but have you tried to move the steering wheel left and right while trying to turn on the ignition?

    Has he also tried to disconnect the battery for a day or so?

    I presume they checked the battery.

    Is your Cayenne at an official Porsche dealer's shop?

    The tech is Porsche certified but dealer has closed. Next dealer is 200 miles away. We disconnected the battery for a few min but not all day. Battery voltage is good. Wheel is not locked. We tried turning it but no luck. Thanks for replies!

    I thought so. Smiley

    Why don't you give the dealer a call and explain your situation? I doubt they will refuse helping you, very likely he is going to give you a hint or two where to look for the problem.

    Your tech should probably contact PCNA for support, if he has not already done so. He is probably not as well equipped with test hardware or up-to-date service bulletins as an official dealer's shop would be. 
    Your car is probably not the first to experience the problem, whatever it may be, so PCNA techs might be able to point yours in the right direction. Smiley

    Best of luck, that sounds scary. A Porsche dealer will know what to do with it.

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :) 


    Re: Cayenne Dead Need Help!

    Thanks for all replies! Turned out to be nothing major. Relay 13 was bad. A $30 part...
