A Porsche Carrera 4S made 2014 MA engine with 15 thousands miles,the owner discribed that no chagning voice of the sport exhaust.And technicians found the valve of rear muffler keep closed,and no chagning voice of the sport exhaust.This article talk about topic of how to solved Porsche Carrera 4S sport exhaust trouble.
Diagnosis of Trouble:
Here comes a structural schematic diagram of Porsche sport exhaust system,show as below:
3.central exhaust valve adjusted
4.each cylinder equipped a main muffler 5.Dual-outlet exhaust
Only follow the requirement to press one of below buttons in the sport exhaust system your vehicle equipped,can you start or stop switch mode from exhaust valve to Acoustic performance optimization.
1. “Sport” button
2. “Sport Plus” button
3. “Sport exhaust system” button
It is the same as the Porschediagnostic tool Carrera S,we need to follow the requirement to start exhaust valve by diagram of DME unit.In this case,DME control unit sent the CAN signal to gateway,it receives the signal from controller and AC unit by CAN.The gateway sent the signal to next electronics,then it enable the electronic control pneumatic switching valve.
According to the fault syptoms and schematics,we can determine the possible reasons:
1. Solenoid valve of control valve trouble
2. Valve vacuum pipe failure
3. Sport valve trouble
Connect the PIWIS to vehicle and found the trouble code”80730E”
Porsche Piwis2 V18.15 V17.500 Free Download
It mean:exhaust valve of rear muffler trouble
And after testing found exhaust voice did not chage.Disconnect the vacuum tube,it did not generate vacuum when opening or closing the switch of exhaust,it implied that solenoid valve of control valve trouble.
Located the right rear solenoid valve,it was damaged.
Solution:Replace a new solenoid valve.
John Deere Diagnostics
John Deere has recently been in the news because of their strict opposition to allowing farmers, equipment owners, and repair shops access to the information they need to repair and maintain their vehicles. If you read the main stream news, you would be left to believe that John Deere diagnostic with a computer is impossible. Well, we are here to help dispel that myth and give some more exposure to some tools that actually do perform diagnostics on John Deere. There are actually several solutions in the market, some of which we will cover in this post.
John Deere EDL and Service Advisor
The very best solution in the market is what the dealers use. John Deere dealers use a combination of PC-based computer with two critical components – John Deere Service Advisor software and the John Deere EDL v2 Adapter. The EDL v2 adapter looks like the picture shown below. It comes with a hard carry case, the adapter itself, a 9-pin connector, and the USB cable. This tool is available for purchase from our website as well.
The John Deere EDL Adapter also has a variety of “extra” cables you can purchase, almost all of which are for some of the much older equipment. You can see all of the available cables on our website.
The problem comes into the other side of the equation — The diagnostic software. The Heavy Duty Scan Tool John Deere dealers refuse to sell this software to anyone. This includes owners of the equipment, repair shops, or anyone else for the matter. The reason for this is simple: Dealers don’t want anyone besides themselves to perform John Deere diagnostic tests and commands, since it would in sense be money leaving their own pockets. If there is no one else that has the software solutions to perform the advanced diagnostics, the customer has to go to them. However, we were fortunate enough to have the opportunity to get our hands on this software, so here are some screen shots showing what this software looks like.
Unfortunately, as stated previously, this software isn’t available to purchase. This leads a lot of customers to seek alternative means through bootleg, pirated copies of the software from China or other black market sources. For most customers, this isn’t an option and it leads us to our next solutions
PF-Diagnose by Pocketfleet
PF-Diagnose is an universal “read everything” program, and works very well with John Deere. With this software, you would be able to read all the diagnostic trouble codes, view all the live sensor, and clear codes. Unfortunately, this tool is “read only”, so you won’t be able to perform diagnostic tests or advanced functions. However, for a lot of customer, this is a good option and gets them more then they could do before. This tool also has a low entry point, and is available for immediate download.
TEXA Diagnostic Tool: Off Highway Edition
TEXA is a company in Italy that has been around for more then 3 decades providing advanced diesel diagnostic solutions, including John Deere diagnostic software. TEXA is the only one that gets anywhere close to the ability of the John Deere Service Advisor software. TEXA has coverage on all John Deere market segments, including Agriculture, Construction, and stand-alone engines sold in generators, air compressors, and other equipment.
With TEXA Off Highway Edition, you can not only view live data, view/clear codes, but also perform John Deere diagnostic commands on the engine. Some of these commands include:

Engine load profile
Exhaust temperature management test
Fuel dosing pump diagnostic test

Share an easy way to repair sd connect c4 multiplexer if your multiplexer is dead, not powering up via any adapter cable.
TRY AT YOUR OEWN RISK!
First open the MB SD C4 main unit. Slide PCB out a little bit, from the connector side, so you can see the units buttons wiring. Carefully pry the lock out & up, after that you can pull the wiring and PCB out.
Then Open 4 Main PCB screws, Carefully wiggle the PCB off from another, it might be pretty tight, so carefully, side from side!
Then you can disconnect the Connector PCB, very carefully, might be really thight! Again slowly from both sides. You now have access to the small Fuses.
You can use multi-meter to see if they work, usually the LAN connector side 5A is burnt. So desolder the broken one, install new & enjoy your powering up mux again!
This repairing above requires experienced and professional techniques; or you are suggested to buy a cheap clone MB SD Connect C4 of high quality to replace it. Google to get the good one. I helped to put the first site here for you (no affiliation to the vendor)
I bought the Mercedes Star Diagnostic SD connect C4 diagnostic system. I have installed the XDOS 2015.12V DAS Xentry on Dell D630 laptop, but it gave me two errors:
HHT-WIN display error “Internal fault Diagnosis multiplexer Code:10766”
Fault (1.2) Initialization of diagnosis multiplexer failed.
1: HHT error: 2015.12 or newer 2016V Star diagnosis software does not come with HTTWIN software. If you need to troubleshoot old Mercedes, better go for Star software pre-2015.09V.
2.Multiplexer failed: We can see from the error screenshot, MB star Compact C4 icon didn’t show on the status bar which indicates you have not set the SD Connect C4 correctly, so the MB SD C4 is not well communicate with vehicle.
