Electrostatic Discharge May Damage Porsche Models 

This bulletin applies to 2014-2017 Porsche Macan S, GTS and Turbo, and Cayenne S and GTS V6 vehicles. The engine may not start at times and the fault code P0607 control unit fault is stored in the fault memory. 

The cause may be due to the DME control unit becoming damaged via the electric wires as a result of electrostatic discharge of the throttle housing. 

The optimized throttle housing with insulation has been installed during production since Aug. 24, 2016. 

For vehicles built before Aug. 24, 2016, the DME control unit and throttle housing must be replaced in the event of a complaint.
