Emergency operation of rear lid
If the rear lid cannot be opened with the radio
remote control (e.g., if the battery of the remote
control is dead), the emergency operation must
be performed:
1. Unlock and open the driver's door with the
vehicle key.
2. Switch on the ignition so that the alarm system
will not be triggered.
3. Check if the TAILGATE function is activated in
the multi-purpose display of the instrument
Please observe the chapter “TAILGATE” on
Page 119.
4. Press the central locking button in the armrest.
The rear lid is now unlocked and can be opened
with the unlocking handle

    Door opening



    You can set different variants of locking and unlocking

    the doors and the rear lid as well as the

    check-back signal when locking and unlocking the

    vehicle and save them on the respective remote



    1. Select the desired setting with the rocker


    2. Press RESET switch.

    3. Switch ignition off.

    4. Close the driver's door.

    5. Lock the vehicle with the radio remote control

    (button 2). The settings are now stored on this

    radio remote control.




    Door unlocking can be set on an individual basis.

    Single door

    Only the driver's door is unlocked.

    The door of the access side is unlocked in

    vehicles equipped with Porsche Entry & Drive.

    Vehicle side

    Both doors on the driver's side are unlocked.

    The doors on the access side are unlocked in

    vehicles equipped with Porsche Entry & Drive.


    All doors are unlocked.

    Note on operation

    If the unlocking button (button 1) of the remote

    control is pressed a second time within

    2 seconds, all vehicle doors are unlocked, independent

    of the affected setting.


    When the TAILGATE function is active, rear access

    (rear lid, rear window and spare wheel bracket) is

    included in the central locking system.

    Access is possible when the vehicle is stationary

    and unlocked.

    At speeds higher than 4 mph (6 km/h), release is

    blocked until a door is opened with the vehicle stationary.

    When the TAILGATE function is deactivated, access

    is only possible using button 3 of the remote

How to open 2008 Porsche Cayenne gas tank

If you mean the fuel door... if it is not unlocking make sure the key is on and pull the fuel door button on the driver's side door. Button should be next to the rear hatch button. If it is not releasing check your fuses. If you need fast access remove the carpeted side panel inside of the rear hatch and you will find an emergency release.

Left the key in my cayenne S 2006 for four days, now they key is stuck and can't turn it on

While looking at the key slot there is a small slot beside the key. You need to put a small flat headed screw driver in this slot. This removes the key just in case you put in the wrong one from another Porsche or the key is stuck. Good luck.

Fuel cap wont open

Hi Dave,

There is an emergency release handle in the trunk.
Pull the emergency release mechanism behind the right luggage compartment trim panel in direction of arrow.
The filler flap pops open. You can find a diagram on page 267 of the owners manual. Also linked here:

Fule door on my 2004 Porsche Cayenne S won't open with release

It's likely the fuse. The fuse diagram is in your owners manual. The fuse box is on the side of the dash when you open your driver's door. That should solve your issue.
