Porsche Crest Intermittent start, Starter Solenoid Failure

Guys n Gal's:

Been plagued with intermittent starting since i received my car last year July 2016.

Sometimes it would start immediately after turning key on 1st try and other times, I would have to wait a up to 10 min before it would start...

I did get progressively worse untill last Thursday morning in NYC with 37'F. The starter just stop responding after a few attempts. I was going to work @ 5am. Battery was a little low but still good. Bosch Blue top premium_ The Best & New!.

Spoke to Pete at Porsche Rosyn, NY. He said the V8's are prone to starter failures...
Oh Boy!

No Coolant leak"s, Aluminum pipe upgrade kit previously installed.
My SUV has 186K Mikes.

Currently waiting on a rebuild unit from Ebay! for under $200
Dealer(s) wants $781 for a new Bosch unit.... Out of Control, Right!

Well, Just lifted the Intake Manifold last night in the wind w/Temp was mid 40's F.
Big Job, no Joke!..
I'm sure the dealer would have charged me with a Hefty $1200.00 Bill.

Thank God for Ebay, Pelican Parts Tech Articles, You tube and My Porsche Brotherhood here on the Forum!.
Waiting for UPS and Off from work again today. Pending Serpentine Belt /Pulley Service and Water pump/Thermostat and Hoses in the works as well. Even may address my noisy lifter "tick" issue (Old 996 OEM Lifters, Challenge)... Looking forward to driving her again with confidence next week/ASAP.
Taking Pics & will post oics ASAP. Keep you all updated!

After replacing my battery every year because of intermittent starting I finally dove in this summer and installed an eBay new starter unit . I can't complain as it had 184k miles on it and 13 years. It is also quite the exercise getting the old one out of there , but problem solved. Should have done it two years ago.

For all the work that needs to be done to access the starter, you guys are trusting a rebuilt unit off eBay?
Pelican sells brand new Bosch units (exact oem) for well under $400.

Hopefully you're talking about ticking in a vehicle other than your Cayenne. Cayenne lifters don't tick...scored cylinders do.

Mine was a new unit from a place in NJ. I noticed a much faster rpm start and going on 8 months now. I figured the value of my vehicle is dropping and there is so much aftermarket coming on line now, I'd give it a shot. We'll see. Gonna dive into some aftermarket control arms next.
