Question about 2005 Porsche Cayenne

1 Answer

Headlight an alert that says "check dipped light" pops up and my front headlight started to blink on and off. What does this mean? Is the bulb just going bad?

    I have a cayenne with the same problem, i undid the bolt by the light housing, there is only one bolt, the unit then slides out, put wd40 or some other protectant on the female and the male connectors terminal that connects to the light unit then re connect and push the light back . i found it strange only one bolt holds the unit in place but it does and sometimes if the rubbers around the unit wear over time some movement occurs, causing an intermitent light.



    I hope this helps.

One of your bulbs is either out or about to go out.

Turnsignals normal with headlights off.But , blink real fast when headlights on


Check you running light bulb.. some of those have two elements in them and one side could be blow inside the single bulb. The blinking is how the car tells you that you have a bad bulb, or maybe a short. Mostly likely it just a bulb.

2008 CTS front directional not working?


Try replacing ALL directionals for the side that is not working properly. That fast blink in the back usually means bad bulb, but could also mean bad relay.

Can you elaborate? You say emergency flashers work, but FR directional does not. Does the bulb-in-question light when the E-flashers are going?

My right turn blinker has just started rapidly blinking when I use it. The left blinker is still going at standard speed, but the right one has suddenly started rapid blinking. What do you suppose is...


Check all the bulbs to make sure they are working. Usually when a turn signal stays on solid or blinks fast it means that a bulb has blown. Its the cars way of telling you that a bulb is bad. If they are all good then it will probably be a flasher relay that has gone bad.

No headlights at all. No dip beam,no main beam, all other lights ok. Lights pop up ok. Bulbs ok.


the headlight switch is good because the lights pop up. check the ground for the headlight bulbs.

Fast Blinker


Usually a fast turn signal means that there is a light out. You should probably check all of your lights, including back-up lights, and turn signals. If there is one out then replacing the burnt out bulb should fix the problem.
