Porsche Cayenne Turbo: there. I have a problem of starting

Customer Question

Hello there. I have a problem of starting 2008 cayenne turbo starting 3 days ago. Somehow I managed to restart by disconnecting - battery, wait for 2 min and restart. 2 days later I changed the battery under driver seat. Today I couldn't start. Symptom: when the key is inserted Porsche logo light on, radio on, light on, no warning light. No click from steering column. Can you please help? From searching I suspect there is a problem with steering column and steering control unit. Is that true? Thanks.

hello, sounds to me like you may have a issue with the ignition switch if the switch does not see the key inserted then it will not allow the car to start correctly, when you put the key in the ignition, and turn it, does it turn smooth? or does it feel like it binds??
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It turns smoothly. No issue with turning it. Steering and gear are stiff though.

No. the electronics in the car come on. I wonder if you received my first problem statement as it's been explained there already.
