As an aside, at 13.05 today I ordered 10lt of AdBlue from Euro Car Parts for £10.99. It was delivered at 14.20!

How much does an OPC charge for a top up again?

Well yes it was FOC as I enquired in advance and then paid the menu standard charge for the service. I only asked them to refill the AdBlue on arrival.

They also did not charge for the 2019 version SatNav update.

The saga continues :x . Went on a three day break straight after the last fix and no problems. Driving to Sheffield yesterday and Engine Control Fault after 40 miles followed 10 miles later by AdBlue fault. Mileage to "No Start" was down to 500 by the time I got home. Had to move the car after five minutes and the AdBlue fault disappeared, leaving just the Engine Control Fault. Contacting the OPC today!

On track,

I’m having starting to have the same issues on my wife’s Cayenne. Management light came on and the the 650m adblue warning. The management light is a nitrogen oxide sensor. Took it to Porsche yesterday and they reset the management light and “reset the adblue. They said to drive it for 30m with out turning off the engine to reset. Done this but the adblue warning still there. Turned off the engine and waited a few minutes. Warning still there but no management light.

Just wondering if you ever got to the bottom of this with your vehicle?

^ Sounds similar to mine (described earlier in this thread). Turned out to be faulty AdBlue pump.

Sorry I didn't post the end of my story. Like Guy's experience, it turned out to be a faulty AdBlue pump. I didn't shout about it at the time but I got a massive discount from the OPC because they'd misdiagnosed the fault as an AdBlue sensor.

Given that the parts and labour are seriously expensive (sensor = £400, pump = £800), correct diagnosis is essential. I don't know if the system on the Cayenne is the same as that on the Macan but I would get the OPC to check the pump.
