Hi there,

I have recently bought a 55 Cayman secondhand and am lovin it. One thing I have noticed, however, is that when passengers try to open the passenger door, they don't realise you need to pull once to unlock and once again to open. Inevitably they yank the door handle (unless I remember to tell them).

Does anyone know if there is a way around this?

They all do that sir. Seriously, though, mine is the same so I guess that's the way they're meant to be.

Thanks Trev... just a little concerned the handle might come off. Fingers crossed it wont :-/

You can push the unlock button on the dash, or pull your own door handle once, which then will mean it should only need one tug. At least I think that's what happens - the wife's usually too scared of my driving to travel with me anymore.

Or you can get the OPC to reprogram the default to not lock the doors when you are moving. Depends on how paranoid you are about car jacking.

As above, you can either press the unlock button on the dash or change the door settings so that they don't lock automatically. The manual says that an "authorised Porsche dealer" can change this but I assume any garage with the right diagnostic tool could do it.

Hmm... will have a paranoia-off between car jacking and a butch girl ripping off the handle accidentally ;-)

Thanks guys!

If you have Sport Chrono option then you'll have 'individual memory' in the PCM options - you can set the locking/unlocking and other things without having to visit a tester equipped workshop

My Cayman is 2011 and the same thing bugged me but changed setting myself. Sport Chrono is fitted.

Why would you have a butch girl in the car in the first place? ;-)

Because provided I can stop her from singing... the drive will last forever ;-)
