engine check light

A with circle around it

i do need you to access the engine fuse/relay box near the drivers side wiper!!

this will take a bit to get the cover off

need to see if it is inside the vehicle is the issue or the starter / wiring to the starter is the issue .

we will need to bypass the starter relay so a jumper wire/paper clip to do this!!

Check red wire on start ?
Got to get truck inside might take a day or Tero to get it moved , what would be the next two steps

if you have voltage there then you need to verify that the relay clicks at the box which you can do now before lifting the intake off. the best way is to check if you have voltage at the 30 terminal at the relay. do that first

Ask Your Own Porsche Question

if you have voltage there i have to say you may need a starter and while you are there replace the coolant manifold too at the same time they tend to fail !!!

Replaced battteryvehicle started last night and this morning
Original battery test ok and never went flat four years old
Do you think that’s the end of my starting problems ?

It's possible on the battery may resolve your issue . saying its 4yrs old that is usually the life expectancy for cayenne's and touraegs.

Martin just keep an eye on it and see if you still have an issue with it . If it acts up you can request me to continue on your issue

anything else?

if not.....

I try to be online 365 days a year.

I only earn a paycheck when a customer rates me Ok, Good, Excellent.

This rating is VERY IMPORTANT! Your rating compensates me on my time and my expertise on your issue!

A lot of the repair information and fixes are hard to come by!!

I HAVE DONE MY PART IN HELPING YOU AND I DO EXPECT THE SAME WITH A 5 STAR RATING!!!
