  2. Driving wind can also make such a noise, tape the seems from the front trunk to the other body parts with duck tape, the seals around the front windshield, the seams from the convertible top to the windshield(s) etc., do test drives to locate the noise. Of course, it would be easier to use an ultrasonic device if possible.
  3. Need help with a radio code for a Boxster I just purchased. Its a CDR-220, type 4462, with serial number Y5045162. Really appreciate it!
  4. I didn't check the wiring inside the steering wheel. I am thinking about taking out the tensioner and sending it in to be rebuilt. These guys guarantee that they can reset modules and fix the tensioners as well. I think it's worth a shot. safetyrestore on eBay WWW.EBAY.COM safetyrestore has been an eBay member since Aug-06-16 and has 99.6% positive feedback. Check out safetyrestore's full profile.
  5. Or as Loren and Jeff suggest, time for a piwis at your local stealership. good luck.
  6. The error says seat belt tensioner - not receptacle. You could always scan with a PIWIS to confirm the error. Chances are a bad connection or a bad tensioner - that is where I would put my money.

  8. Okay I'm revisiting this error because it is driving me nuts. I am also a little confused as to what I am looking at. Here is what I have done: 1) Replaced the airbag control module part # 996.621.219.02 with another module. Reset using Durametric. The error still pops up. 2) Replaced the driver's side seat belt receptacle part # 996.803.183.10. Reset using Durametric. The error still pops up. 3) Cleaned the grounds thoroughly and put Stabilant 22 on the electrical contacts under the seat that go into the seat belt receptacle electrical connectors. Reset using Durametric. The er
  9. 153,000 on this 05 997 that I just picked up. Perhaps the PO is a member and can share some thoughts on all the miles and smiles?
  10. Look up at the top of this page. Click on Documents. There is a VIN lookup and Option Code decoder. Good thread on all the option codes Option Codes - Rennlist - Porsche Discussion Forums RENNLIST.COM 996 Forum - Option Codes - Hey guys.......been searching on this site but can't find a definitive answer to this question............ Are the option codes on the sticker the actual options that should be on the car........OR........are they simply a list of possible options that could...
  11. I am looking for a VIN decoder capable of identifying my 2000 996 factory options. I have already tried a few without success. Does anybody have one that works? Thanks
  12. I have disabled the activation option but to no avail. I'm at a loss. Any suggestions welcome. Thank you. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  13. Hi Wnshie,

    I saw your post in 6SpeedOnline but the system was down and I cannot reach you over there.

    I'm a 970 newbie in Hong Kong and just got the 970 4S this week.  I would like to retrofit the Turbo Spoiler and hope you can guide me to do so.

    Before this car, I have some retrofit experience on my previous car with a little bit electronic skill, but have none of idea in 970.

    Please kindly gives me some advise and my E-mail address is duncanliu (at) hot mail . com

    Many thanks.

  15. Totally out of the blue while driving transmission got stuck on 3rd gear and wont shift. Check engine light is ON. It goes to reverse, park, drive (3rd!) with big bump... I tried scanning it with durametric 6, got these from transmission module: 12750 / 31CE Warning Indicator On Test Completed This Monitoring Cycle Test Failed Since Last Clear Test Completed Since Last Clear Pending DTC Test Failed This Operation Cycle Fault Active Either durametric is not reading codes correctly or something else, but I cant find anything about this weird c
  16. I have 911 2000 millenium number 547 I d'ont have radio code becker BE2582 SERIE 15009221 tHANK
  17. Hi All, I am replacing my front bearings, tie rod ends and wishbone on my 99 Boxster. Considering that I have everything removed I decided to replace the shocks. Anything else I should consider while in there...springs/shock mounts etc..... Ok well now im seeing all dosent have to be removed(balljoints) so maybe I'll hold off on the shocks...any thoughts? Thanks v
  18. Thanks. Flipped a coin and replaced the seals in the other cylinder. That did it. The original seals came out shredded. New o-rings returned the top to smooth performance.
  19. My best regards to belgium . Thank you. I have seen your post before. Still in process to discover where the wiring is going along. Will report what i found out. thinking if it makes sense to install the new fuel filter before i continue with the wiring. A clogged filter can cause this fuse problem too - a Porsche mechanic told me
  20. In/next to the rear left wheel arch under the car are electrical connectors, the wiring of which controls the fuel pumps, this connectors can be deformed by heat influense and strange situations can occure. If so, connectors and burnt wiring must be replaced.
  21. Not likely going to work - IMHO. CDR-23 (or later): These radios do not have a security code - that is, not that the user enters. These radios are security tested on the MOST (fiber optic bus) system to see if they are the "programmed" radio. The radios are programmed and recognized by the car’s DME and can only be replaced by a shop with a PST2 or PIWIS. These radios will not request a code when battery power is disconnected.
  22. I have a CDR23 in my 2003 911 Cab. I plan on replacing the radio. My question is - can the CDR23 be put in a non-Porsche and work? I have a MGTD that I would like to use the radio in. Thanks.
