thanks loren. has anyone or do you know of a way to bypass the immobilizer


Do you mean how to steal a Porsche? 

I do not think that will get any public replies (and if it does we will remove them).


You need to find out what the problem is using a diagnostic tool like Durametric or a Porsche PST2. We are happy to help with that.

I need the same info.


Started he up this morning & drove her out the garage to do some work on her.

This afternoon:

1) Ignition on all good battery ok.
2) Turn key & nothing. No dimming of ignition lights.
3) Won't roll start
4) Drivers side window stays extended when door open
5) Checked all relevant fuses & all ok
6) Removed battery terminal for 5 mins & reconnected...no change.

7) Plugged in Durametric & no Fault codes. Does this meas it's probably the ignition switch?

Got me stuffed atm

Check fuses C1 to C4 and E1. Also bypass the clutch interlock switch is you have one. Try another key. If not those, it's likely the ignition switch then.
