    Cayenne S Common Problem .. ?

    Hi all ,

    I Would like to share a problem I have in my car, in case some one has had it before . I have Cayenne S 2008 , And it has problem in the steering wheel.
    The problem is that some times the steering wheel being so heavy (the electronic bump is not working) .

    What I do is shutting down the engine than re ignition it again each time i face the problem , than it works as normal .It happens like 1/8 times .

    I checked the problem with our terrible dealer "Samaco" The only dealer in Saudia Arabia , And they said that the computer doesn't show any problem .

    Than I took it to Dubai dealer "Al Nabooda" , They were so helpful and they told me that it is a common problem in the cayenne 2008 (which our dealer admitted later) and they are looking for a solution .

    That was about year ago and our dealer still hasn't received any notification about it from Porsche .. !

    Is it that difficult to Porsche to fix a common problem in their car ?
    Has any one faced the same problem ?
    Who can i contact with (Directly) about it ?

    Thanks ...

    It sounds like there is a problem with the power steering pump, tell you dealer to check for leakages or replace under warranty

    Re: Cayenne S Common Problem .. ?

    i thought i had read about this on either 6speedonline or Rennlist - try searching those sites as an option?

    get them to lend you a loaner for a week and let them re-create the circumstances?

    Re: Cayenne S Common Problem .. ?

    We've had this problem in one of our posts as well, let me try to find it. If I remember right it is a software update what will solve the problem.

    Had this same problem with my 07 cayenne s.There is a software update and the dealer should know about it as there was a service bulletin sent from porsche as is a common fault.Had mine sorted by my dealer 3months ago and hasnt happened since.
