Heater not working on my 2014 991 C2. Just stopped. Only cold air.

Will take it back to the dealer for a fix. Annoying as it was just there for another fix to the high pressure fuel pump.

I guess my car is being affected by all the common recall items.
It's Porsche's new intelligent heater. No heat delivered during summer months.

Evidently, Porsche would rather suffer the ongoing embarrassment of shoddy parts than spend some of it's fortune on a pre-emptive recall of the changeover valves.

Well at least it's good to hear it's (probably) a nice fast fix. Wondering if I'll need to leave me car overnight or if can even be fixed same day. Will call dealership in the morning.

The dealers have replaced so many they can knock it out in an hour or so.

The bad news is there are seven more of the same shoddy valve in the car.

Ugh, and I'm afraid to ask, but what do those other valves control? Is it all HVAC related?

The annoying thing is that for many of those valves there is no fault code thrown when the valve stops functioning. So you might not even know if the valve isn't working, unless it leads to a bigger problem. For instance, maybe my sound symposer valve is also gone but I just haven't noticed.

I had the same issue with the control valve; unfortunately it was last October in Wisconsin and I was freezing my nuts off at night even with the heated seats.

The part took 6 weeks to arrive but my car was in winter storage before it did. I got to drive and try out the disaster that is the Cayenne Diesel out of it.

Super curious if the two are related or if yet another valve completely separate has failed. Whatever it is I guess I'm glad it went before my appointment on Monday so they can look at both at the same time.

Argh.

Sorry I know this is an old thread. Just curious if dealer will fix this "known" issue free of charge for a 2013 that is out of warranty?

I feel that courtesy out of warranty repairs are hit or miss. So much depends on the humans you interact with. I would first start with a phone call or visit to your local dealer to see if they have experiences with Porsche helping here. Also a call to Porsche customer support and being SUPER friendly could help.

It's all about the humans you interact with and how that interactions goes. That's going to be my best guess on this.

Good Luck

I am still amazed at COV failures, what, seven model years later? Ack. You would have thought all the bad ones would have been replaced by now and that the replacements wouldn't fail as well...

Please someone tell me that there are no COV issues on the 991.2s....

Thanks for the input. Reached out to my local dealership. Brining the car on Friday. SA seemed very nice, and said he would do whatever he could to help. Will keep you posted.
