    New Tyres / Tyre fitters UK.

    I just been reading this thread: https://www.taycanforum.com/forum/threads/new-porsche-taycan-jack-pads-available.7750/page-3#post-239707 I'm pretty sure none of the tyre shops i've used will ever do anything other than stick a trolley jack under the car and/or put the car up on a lift without...

    1. Anyone else had problems with Porsche Vehicle Tracking system (or other connect systems) not renewing (payment taken) and being stuck in 'being activated' limbo? 2. Porsche mechanics know more about the cars than me. Any idea why they'd pump all of the tyres (after unconnected warranty work)...

    MyPorsche App/website connectivity problem. WNK7 recall just done....

    Hi I've just had my car back from having it's heater fixed and they also did 2 campaigns - WNK7 and WNV0. WNK7 is to do with the antenna i believe, not sure about the other one. Anyway, I seem to have lost all connectivity with myporsche app/website. I can't see anything to do with charging or...

    Car won't charge. "Porsche charging planner active, battery is fully charged"

    Bit stuck! Car plugged in at home on 52%. General profile is 85%. it won’t charge and the direct charge option is grey in car and app. Car and app both saying ‘The Porsche Charging Planner is active. This means that the battery is already fully charged’ I can’t see I have any charge planner...

    Arrival SOC

    Hi, Is there a way to set an arrival state of charge for a route? The route planner on the app always seems to want me to charge up on the way for 3 or 4 minutes and arrive at destination with 15% or similar in the tank. I can't see anywhere to set a higher arrival SOC on the app. Is there...

    PCM on start up

    Is there a way to save which screen you want the car to default to on start up? Eg to launch on the radio or the trip page or whatever. Mine seems pretty random, sometimes on the home screen, sometimes on what i last looked at etc. Pre-big update it always seemed to start up on what i last had...

    My user account has gone grey

    Evening, App doesn't seem to be working properly - It doesn't know the car is on charge and the functions and manual tabs don't work. Just checked in the car and its asking if i want to set up or change account (or guest). I can see my account but it is greyed-out. Any idea if this is a...

    The tailgate has stopped opening after the big update

    Anyone know if there is a setting in the car that disables the tailgate from opening via the button in the bumper? Car had the big update a few days ago. Pretty much all of the personal settings in the car are all as before (radio stations, sports chronology, phone etc). But i did note it...

    Privacy / Service mode

    Morning, Car is in the dealer and they set to privacy mode when they collected it. I'm being asked to change it to service mode via the app. Not sure i can access car (certainly can't find the menu anyway) from the app when it's in privacy as that needs to be disabled in the car PCM (according...

    Park brake

    Morning. Just lifting the dog out of the CT and lent on the bumper of the car as I did so. Car started to roll forward easily. Maybe 6 or 7 inches and didn’t feel rock solid then. Tried from the front and the same. Certainly didn’t feel the brakes gripped (as they sometimes do when a car (ICE)...

    Route planning from Porsche app / charging.

    I'm just building up the courage to go on a longer trip. Using the Porsche app to calculate my route which show where it wants me to fill up with electricity. However, it leaves me with a destination SOC of just 15%. The charging st is about 1/2 way on a 200 odd mile trip. Other has just...

    Interior cooling not possible with Sports plus

    I had a white 'alert' pop up in the right hand tube earlier. Car was in Sports plus and had been for a while - The alert said something along the lines of interior cooling disabled/not possible because of sports plus. Aircon did seem to go off. I put it into normal and aircon back on. Put it...

    Satnav volume

    The only way i've managed to alter the volume of the car and waze satnav is by turning the volume control when an announcement is being made. I assume there is a option somewhere in the PCM, but i can't find it! Has anyone? Apologies for the low level dumb question!

    Question for car tinkerers...

    I just had the rear windscreen replaced (on CT) after some kind soul smashed it. Some of the glass has fallen into the tailgate panel under the screen and you can hear it rattling around when you lower/raise the tailgate. The glass repairers weren't able to do anything about it, but i was...

    Rear windscreen replacement?

    Has anyone had to replace one of these? Some scumbag has smashed mine and suspect it won't be 'free' on insurance in same way as front wind screen. Any idea on price if you have been equally unfortunate. Ta.

    DAB Radio and Apple car play conflict.

    I've had the car a couple of days. Had a few glitches but love it. Apple wireless CarPlay is set up and launches automatically every time. I only really care about it for having waze up and running in the back ground. I don't generally want to use spotify/apple music etc and prefer to listen...
