  1. There are a relay and special circuit (Z1) that determine if the second battery is needed. when it is the power relay switches to the secondary battery. I believe these are all near the secondary battery at the rear of the car. Please correct me if I am wrong (but I do not have one to look at right now).
  2. Yes, it will fit in your car. As will 997.561.125.00.1C and 997.561.125.01.1C
  3. Lost Radio Code - post your request here

    Try 9308
  4. You can get this fault code if the ATF is the wrong spec or if the ATF cooler is blocked. If not that you may have to replace the torque converter.
  5. Lost Radio Code - post your request here

    Try 8987
  6. The internal switch is likely broken.
  7. You do not need Durametric to turn on the CDC-3 (you do for the MOST CDC-4). The radio will recognize it once it is plugged-in and the radio is turned on.
  8. Lost Radio Code - post your request here

    Try 2406
  9. Sorry, there were no TSBs for the CDC-3 CD Changer. I installed my own and it's pretty simple. The cable comes through the firewall behind the battery. There is a rubber plug that can be cut (a slot) for the wires and they come out above the accelerator pedal near the center console. Just be sure and use cable ties to keep the wires from dropping down. Then it just plugs into the back of the radio.
  10. Starter to Alternator

    It should be pretty much the same though the part number for a Tip is: 997 607 018 04
  11. Door light Switch

    A clean chassis ground should work fine for ground.
  12. Door light Switch

    It is always helpful if you give the exact model and year of your car... thanks!
  13. If you have Durametric you can run a fault check and see which sensor(s) or whether they are all reading on. Usually, it is just one or two sensors - so you just replace the bad ones.
