I'm having some issues with my 2006 Cayman S with Bose sound and CD multichanger. Before starting the car I will sometimes get some feedback/white noise through the speakers after opening the door or placing the key in the ignition. If I start the car the noise will then increase in volume after around 10-15 minutes of driving until a heavily distorted radio station can be heard, though the white noise is deafening at that point. Before, I could reset the behaviour by removing the key from the ignition after hearing the static and wait for the system to go quiet. But now I can only reset it by having the car started for a few minutes then shut it down and wait for a minute before restarting.

The sound does not seem related to engine RPM and I'm at a loss now to what is causing the problem. Could it be related to the amp in the frunk?

Hi Mathias,

I'm in Dubai too. I can see you are in the Springs area too by the looks of your picture? Good choice in first car by the way :).

I'm keen to avoid the dealerships at this point. Porsche servicing in this region is not the cheapest. I'm competent enough to tackle most DIY projects on my car myself so I'd like to try to at least diagnose the problem myself before going to the service centres.

Hey, I can’t really figure out your name from your username 🙂
I have listen to the audio clips quite a bit and to be honest it does not sound too good. I myself, agree with you 100% that it is overly expensive at Dubai Porsche service center, but I think this time it would be the best option before there is more damage to the car. But other than that your car looks great from the profile picture 😎
Also, even though I just got my car, it had been beginning to smell like fuel after driving it, especially when it was in my closed garage. and I also tried to look for anything and search the web for answers, but I had to admit that this problem was beyond my ability and I took it to Porsche, and they are currently working on it right now. However, I do believe that if you bring the car in, they take a look at the car for free.

hi lexnat187, you may want to get the help of a good audio specialist and/or wireman to check the amp, grounding point. If I recall correctly the Bose system uses optical connections vs. copper.

Radio sounds like a connection. I had something similar and it was the plug in of some wires behind the unit not being solidly in. Easy to pull out and check
When I got the gas smell I also got a CEL; it was a crack in plastic vaper control from the gas tank. You would need at experienced tech with a smoke detector to locate.
Fairly cheap part, expensive labor since hard to get to.
