Porsche Cayenne Engine Light and Misfire

One of our old customers came into our workshop as their Porsche Cayenne had an engine light on and was misfiring under load.

When the errors were scanned we found a camshaft sensor fault on the inlet camshaft for bank 1. Test schedules were carried out and the sensor was removed which had an open circuit. This sensor was replaced though the car would not start but this was due to a faulty sensor. A new one was installed and the car started but ran rough. Scanning for any residual errors showed a camshaft timing error code.

We then removed the vacuum pump and bracket to inspect and turn the engine over by hand. This was done to inspect the camshaft sensor pickup and we noticed 1 was bent out of shape which did not allow the sensor to pickup the position.

The cavity was inspected and there was no signs of debris in the engine. We straightened the pickup and measured the air gap which was all ok and consistent with the other pickups. The removed parts were all refitted and the engine errors cleared.

A smoke test found the hard plastic hose leading to the vacuum pump was leaking. We repaired the items and did another smoke test which did not find any leaks. Error codes were cleared and a final test drive done.

Porsche Cayenne Suspension too Low

One of our old customers had brought in his Porsche Cayenne that had a suspension issue.

We scanned the vehicle electronics for errors due to the suspension being on the lowest level. Errors for the pump and system calibration had appeared during the scan. Using out diagnosis tested system functions through the compressor did not work.

The Cayenne was raised on the hoist to remove the underside covers to expose the pump. All the plug connections were ok but checking the power at the pump showed none. We located the fuse box to test the fuses which were all ok. It was noted that the system relay was not switching on or off when prompted. Once this relay was replaced the system was retested and we found the suspension pump was overheating when attempting to pump up the system. The pump was replaced as the old one was burnt out and the errors were cleared.

Porsche-Cayenne-Suspension-Repair-2While attempting to calibrate the system it failed even after we checked the connections and relays. All the sensor voltages and wiring connections were all ok when checked. No leaks were found in the system air lines and all the wiring from the sensors were ok. We checked the earthing points and control module coding which were also ok. An alternate tester was used to calibrate the system but it also did not work. While we replaced the suspension control module we also attempted to calibrate the systsme without success. When we continued testing the vehicle we found that the sensor link rod was changed to aftermarket lowering rods which was obstructing the calibration process. Once we replaced the link rods the calibration process worked. We then reset the steering angle sensor and cleared the error codes.

Porsche Cayenne Brake Booster Error

Recently we worked on a Porsche Cayenne that had a brake booster error displayed.

We scanned the vehicle electronics and verified the error in the brake system was due to the low system pressure. The engine bay was removed including the surrounding covers to inspect the brake booster lines where a feed hose leak was found. This brake hose was repaired and the parts all refitted. The errors were cleared and a final test drive done.

Porsche Cayenne Minor Scheduled Service

Another service job for a returning Porsche customer.

We performed a minor service on the Porsche Cayenne as per the log book and current km on the vehicle. This included replacing the oil and oil filter. We also performed a number of comprehensive checks which included the brake wear percentage and a report on the tyres.
