Taycan defect - heater failure

  • The new interior heater also has new software that increases the heat output more slowly. This should make it last longer :)

    What is the reason for this? Source?

  • Today I received a nice letter from Porsche asking me to have the electric interior heater (WPL8) replaced by the end of September - I'll make an appointment soon.

    I have also received the letter and so this thread is probably coming to an end! The recall wave for affected Taycans has been in full swing for some time and if this thread has contributed a small part to this result, it would be a success. However, we will never know. At least no "we've never had this before", "isolated case" was unbelievable!

    Continue to enjoy your Taycan, I'm also getting a new battery, which for me is a kind of reset: "Go ahead to go" :]) :wink:

  • Is it now certain that the entire battery will be replaced? Won't only the corresponding modules (I think there are 33 in total) be replaced where there are affected cells?

    I'm very curious about that myself. According to a phone call with the service center, the entire battery would be replaced. It would also not be technically clear to me how a cell module affected by a possible short circuit is to be localized, as long as it is apparently still intact.

  • For logistical reasons, the entire battery is probably exchanged for a reconditioned one. Then it does not have to be opened at the service center and the time required by the customer is reduced. The removed battery can then be analyzed and repaired centrally and in peace at a specialist center. And the next patient then receives it.

    I'm already looking forward to the SoH after the conversion!

    I don't believe that the batteries will be refurbished. That would create new sources of error, which would then no longer be manageable.
