  1. Today
  2. Sorry, the only cases I know where my code does not work is a 3rd party repair - or a wrong serial number.
  3. Thanks, Ahsai. Good catch. Makes good sense. And makes me wonder if those suspect VW cars had a similar emission testing connection.
  4. The radio hasnt been repaired. Any other ideas?
  5. Agree with the light switch! It is 996-613-535-00 and not too difficult to replace especially with a good DIY ;-) https://www.6speedonline.com/forums/996-turbo-gt2/176814-diy-head-light-switch-remove-replace.html
  6. A worn or defective ignition switch can cause strange electronic gremlins too. Sent from my SM-G925V using Tapatalk
  7. Looking for some help with a 2009 cayman s. Had a dead completely dead battery that was replaced. Once replaced the car started right up and displayed the psm and tire pressure faults. Took the car out for a quick drive and all warning lights have disappeared. Several days later I took the car out again with no faults or warning lights. Went to use the ac and the fan will turn on but no cold air. Checked all fuses and all seem to be fine. All other systems appear to be working OK as well. Hit the ac button and or the max ac on the dash with temp setting as far down as it will go and it doesn't sound like the compressor is engaging. Is this due to a remaining fault from the dead battery that will require a dealer to clear?
  8. The LN engineering solution that's perm and uses an oil feed is the way I'm likely to go at this point. I'm hard on my cars, and know I'll regret it if I don't go overboard making sure it won't fail on me.
  9. Yesterday
  10. Ok, then chances are that radio was repaired by a 3rd party rather than Becker. Sorry.
  11. I did & it reads "W5011416". The characters are all very "digital" - would it be possible that the "5" is actually an "S" or the zero is an "O"?
  12. Search for 'Emergency release cable' or look at this sample link: Getting power to it and/or using the emergency release cable should do it.
  13. It looks like the connector for emission testing. It plugs into a holder next to the right engine mount (same holder for the bank 2 O2 sensor connectors). It doesn't connect to anything and you can just leave it alone in the holder.
  14. Stant and several other tool companies make them:
  15. I wonder if its a connection to some sort of computer chip reprogramming device that doesn't work through the OBC port under the dash like a Durametric would. Or, it could be the auto-deploy parachute braking activation for hard braking from over 175mph? Interesting looking connection. I think there likely will be some informed replies. Cheers,
  16. Thanks, JFP. I put my mity vac on it with an attachment that fit inside the inner diameter of gas cap. I put pressure on it and it didn't hold, but I'm also not sure that this is the correct location to be testing. Is this the kind of equipment and test to which you were alluding?
  17. Hello, I have a 911 Carrera Cabriolet and the trunk latch is stuck, the hood latch raises slightly but does not engage. To complicate matters the battery is very dead and the key fob does not have a hood release function.
  18. It appears that the PO has done some electrical work on my 2003 C4S. Any idea what this connector might be for? I found it when I removed the air box and was looking at the wiring for the passenger side O2 sensors which were throwing a code. Looks like an amateur hack for sure and doesn't match Porsche style connectors. The wires go into the factory harness. Any help would be appreciated.
  19. the clock in my porsche works fine when the ignition is on but stops when i switch off. anyone had this problem before?
  20. Maybe was air locked and low coolant after thermostat replacement! Let's hope this fixed it or the cost might escalate significantly. Fingers crossed for you my friend.
  21. Vagcom can do it, when I replaced the upper control arm I had the same issue. You need to calibrate the positions height again. I'm not sure if the duremetrics can do it? Someone will chime in I'm sure to clarify. Or its a trip to somewhere with PIWIS.
  22. Loren: Interesting. Didn't realize there wasn't a separate cab drain diagram. Based on my memory and pictures, this is how the drains are on my 997.2. - Picture #1 shows where the drains appear to go. Drain 2 has a capture tank that often seems to cause the overflows into the rear carpets - Picture #2 shows them imposed on my car. - Picture #3 shows the drain that goes to Drain #1 - Picture #4 shows the drain area that goes to Drain #2. Clean both areas (Drain #1 and #2) as well as both outlets in the wheel well. Of course, it is the same on both sides. Hope this helps prevent a few floods for fellow cab owners. Dammad.
  23. Being an IMS neophyte, my research has led me to the same conclusions, JFP. The causes for IMS bearing failure are much more varied than just bearing radial and axial load, oil supply/lubrication (or lack thereof), etc. I've recently fallen down the rabbit hole of shaft misalignment, shaft wobble, etc. And, considering the overall cost of the labor (or time, if DIY), paying more to convert the rear of the bearing to the same as the front (a liquid, hydrodynamic bearing) starts making a lot more sense. Especially when one doesn't have to pay labor to DO IT AGAIN in 60-75k or whenever the clutch needs to be serviced again. That's where I'm at in my research. Not putting any non-LN solution down at all. Sent from my SPH-L720T using Tapatalk
  24. Hi just had to replace my front drivers side air bag and reused the original sensor now I get air suspension workshop fault checked the height for the front and each side is a little off by a few mm and the back is a little higher, any idea how to reset this error
