Ronnie38 replied to Alex Chardy's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)check your manual there is a rod in your tool kit to pull them back down.
Ronnie38 replied to Ronnie38's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I just got back from San Francisco, the car sat since Nov 20th. Jacked it up leveled it ran it till 80 degrees C while running in park opened check port and fluid ran out I let it run out till it stopped. So I don't thing low fluid was a problem. Rolex start next week, if I run it and it goes into limp mode will it hurt driving it? If I turn of the car and restart the limp mode goes away for a bit than in heavy traffic or stopping at a light it will come on again. I'm 11 miles from the speedway.
Ronnie38 replied to thormann's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I wish to thank you, I did not know that the crows foot had to be at a right angle, got to replace the front boots.
Front hood locked, battery dead, tried to pop trunk with fuse box charging. No success. Please advise.
Ronnie38 replied to mchopra's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Had same problem, removed right front wheel, pulled back plastic well liner found the cable, then had the alarm module refurbished and ordered the waterproof box from the ECU Doctors but when out of country pull a trickle charger into cigar lighter just be be safe.
Ronnie38 replied to Ronnie38's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)yes double checked after codes showed up since the Druamatic cannot read this transmission used infrared temp gage on the pan, used level on door sill to ensure car level.
Ronnie38 posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)My 2001 C4 Automatic had what appeared to slip (over rev) when making scarp turns, decided to replace transmission filter and refill, the first run after 10 minuets the transmission went into limp mode (lights on drive selector started to flash) check engine lamp came on (P0734 and P0734) was read. the reason given was input and output ratio wrong for both codes. The Durmatic gave no other info. So I proceeded to order both input and output sensors. Since I couldn't confirm if a shift selonod was bad. Mean while I am in Cal for the holidays I remembered I moved two of the magnets in the pan there were 4 magnets 2 each in the depressions in the rear of the pan I took one each and moved the forward closer to the input and output sensors. Anybody out there have any idea besides taking it to the dealer, at 75 bucks for the 5 liters of tranny oil each time I replace something to help me be smarter?
Ronnie38 posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Went to add auto transmission but my Duramatic didn't show any actual values so couldn't read temp. is this right our do I have a wrong software rev.
Ronnie38 posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Using the Bentley manual I removed the right rear wheel, no sensor found. Removed left wheel, behold there is both the cam shaft and crankshaft sensors. Just for all your info
Ronnie38 replied to Ronnie38's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Thanks was confused with Boxer prefix.
Ronnie38 posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)MY 2001 C4 cab would not start after gas fill towed home read code Crankshaft sensor failure. my service manual said 996 606 112 01 found replacements 986 606 112 01 and 986 606 112 00 prices 350 to 45. If its just a connector problem could I cut off my old one and replace the new one if the sensor fits correctly?
Ronnie38 replied to Lyman Peterson's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)By half way does that mean the lid opens but top will not go up or top only goes half way up, my guess would be check the hydraulic fluid, listen for the pump operation.
Ronnie38 replied to simssj's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)If you can get a copy of the Bentley manual they have them also I had found them on line and had my son print and laminate them "he is a printer" . Now step 1. remove the fuse and from the load side measure the resistance 2. remove the battery, don't want to damage meter 3. note the resistance. 4. press each of the window switch's check the resistance for each note value 5. the lowest resistance is most likely the problem. 6 now try to find the part that is causing the low resistance. RED NECK TOUBLESHOOTING 1. place jumper wire or 100 amp fuse in fuse socket 2. run windows 3 watch for smoke 4. put smoke back in 5 call insurance
Ronnie38 replied to Patrick Rolfe's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Mine is a 2001 C4 auto and as leaving the community in the morning Temp just off the peg I make a sharp turn to the left, metal to the pedal and then engine tends to over rev. I tried turning off the PSM the next of couple of days problem solved. found no codes tranny level ok.
Ronnie38 replied to Ronnie38's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)No will work on this after I get the rear window to operate, got to figure the re-stringing the cables, now that i'm retired got to fix it myself to save on cash. will try to document the repair.
