    Losing power issue

    I don't think your problem is related to the PCM but I do believe it ws triggered by the driving mode change. Of course it is all speculation. You can imagine that if the rear drive module is in a degraded state then an additional command to change mode (which require further processing like...

    Losing power issue

    For those of you who experienced the issue do you remember how long the car was on (i.e. how long you have been driving till the car stalled)? Rough estimate? Was it in for more than half hour? More than an hour? Based on the dealer's description of the rear drive module getting overwhelmed it...

    UPDATE2: Porsche dealer says 'deal with it' -- WMA5 update removed Innodrive on 2020 4S. Later, engine dies on way to getting it fixed.

    I am curious what they plan to do for your car given the two serious issues after the update.

    UPDATE2: Porsche dealer says 'deal with it' -- WMA5 update removed Innodrive on 2020 4S. Later, engine dies on way to getting it fixed.

    Sounds the same as reported by at least 4 members in other threads. Probably a newly introduced bug in WMA5 update. Did turning it off/on resolve the issue (until it happens again)? https://www.taycanforum.com/forum/threads/i-lost-all-power-in-the-outside-lane.2950/page-5#post-67510...

    Crack/ scratch in the front windshields right above my view axis

    Warranty should cover if it is caused by a manufacturing defect or transportation problem. You will have to be able to make an argument that this is not due some impact. It is usually easier to argue if the crack is at the inside because they cannot say it was cause by a rock or tree branch.

    Losing power issue

    I disagree with both IBZMan and faroutinNM. Relying on owners to remember what buttons they pushed while driving is an archaic way to debug problems. The car should log its state, all variables and the user inputs when errors occur. It should also self-correct/recover when possible...

    WMA5/6/7 Improvements.

    The doc is what they hoped to achieve but in practice it is somewhat different. For example, "Digital cockpit sporadic loading spinners and resets are avoided". I still have them after the update. The 12v issue might be prevented during charging but I still caught my PCM with a forever...

    Install Tomorrow 50amp - 14-50 Nema Upside down?

    I did not want to have mine hanging so close to the floor to avoid my kid breaking it with the bike. That is why it is installed above the outlet and it is upside down.

    Install Tomorrow 50amp - 14-50 Nema Upside down?

    I actually had it flipped with ground at 6 o'clock so I don't have to bend the cable. My outlet was closer to the floor so PMCC had to be above it. PMCC is upside down but that is not a problem since the info on screen is useless. In my opinion the best insrallation is with the outlet installed...

    Plug and Charge

    2020 does not support Plug and Charge even after WMA5 so the chargers in your location might support it.

    Everyone complains about Porsche's software but at least they didn't do this

    So we should not complain when the Taycan stalls while driving (alleged bug introduced in latest update) or when it bricks while charging because someone hacked into a Tesla? I am certainly not a Tesla fanboy but when I read the article I also noticed they already fixed the vulnerability with...

    Taycan 4S versus 3 "Super" Sedans

    I considered 2022 BMW M550i (523 hp) which is about the same size and body style as the Taycan and has about the same acceleration as the 4S. The Taycan throttle response is certainly faster but when the M550i was on high revs it was pulling harder. Handling is about the same but the Taycan is...

    I lost all power in the outside lane

    if this is a new bug introduced in the latest update it explains why the number of reports doubled in last 2 weeks. There were cases with cars stalling before the update but as far as I remember those had either a bad battery or bad converter cable, the problem was occurring in their first few...

    PTV (Porsche Torque Vectoring) - a must have?

    Is PTV+ software based to provide more/less torque on specific wheels or does it have additional mechanical parts? I know how PTV+ works on the ICE Porsche but they don't have a motor mounted on rear axle, so I am not sure how it works on Taycan.

    2021 April Software update results - 2020 Taycan Turbo

    maybe they will be refurbished and installed in the new 2022 models 😂

    I lost all power in the outside lane

    I am not sure if I believe the dealer. That would mean that moving forward, WMA5 updates the car to a different software version than what is described in the TSB so it is no longer WMA5 but something else, maybe WMA8. It also sounds very bad if they know there is an existing bug that can...

    Will/are Porsche Indies be able to service the Taycan?

    The rear brakes on the Macan require PIWIS to open the handbrake electric motor so you can replace them. I assume Taycan is the same. Many indy shops don't have PIWIS and get creative and usually disassemble the motor assembly to achieve the same goal. I would not recommend that.

    Will/are Porsche Indies be able to service the Taycan?

    You have to make sure they deactivate the Air Suspension self leveling before they lift the car and that checkbox is buried into the settings menu. It should be deactivated when the car is parked on the lift (not before) because it reenables itself automatically when you start driving again...

    Plug and Charge

    In the US, if you use the Charging NA app then your credit card is only charged at the end of the month (not at end of session) for any session over 30 mins. The app 30 min cutoff setting works only sporadically for me.
