Immobilizer examination

2 posts in this topic

I had some water intrusion from clogged cab drains during the crazy heavy CA rains. So I thought I'd take the seat out and examine the under seat modules (park assist and immo) while it is dry here. I haven't seen any instructions on removal but it comes apart pretty much as a 997.1 or 996. The immobilizer module is, of course, different, so I'm wondering for any input on:

- is there an order to removing the connectors to the immobilizer? On the 996 is was black 1st then Blue, but this has 2 black plugs and 1 brown.

- is it 'safe' to open the immobilizer box (battery is disconnected already etc.)? I don't want it to think I'm tampering with it or something.

Quick update. There's no problem in removing or opening the 997.2 immobilizer. I unplugged black then brown and all worked fine. The immo is about a centimeter above the floor under the seat so there's some buffer in case of water incursions.

      I checked my '09 Cabs's drains at the end of summer and they appeared to drain fine down behind the wheels with good flow. However, now the rain is here, I'm getting water in the driver's side rear footwell (below the carpet) causing the alarm/electrics to go off. I've moped up the water and I checked the drains again between the rains but they still seem to drain well. I've checked the slot style drains from around the end of the top as well as the main drain towards the center of the car in a drainage dip. 
       
      Does anyone have any idea on where the water may be coming in from or perhaps other drains I've missed?

      Hi all,
      I have recently begun to find water in my driver side door storage tray after a rain. Anyone have an idea where this might be coming from and how to fix it? Thank you in advance for your help.

      Hello everyone,
       
      As some of you may already know, we talked about designing a waterproof case for the Alarm Immobilizer Unit in Boxsters and 996s.
       
      These units get water damaged easily if the convertible top is left open during rain, or just by the accumulation of water by the car's water drains, because Porsche installed them right on the floor of the car.
       

       
      The costs entailed to repair this problem can reach $1,000's easily, that's why it would be more cost effectuve to protect the CLU to begin with.
       
      Therefore, after many months of revisions and working with vendors to complete this enclosure, we began shipping waterproof cases last week to the members that where on our waiting list.
       

       
      Below are a few screenshots of the installation video final Immobilizer Waterproof case.
       

       

       
      If you are curious about how it is mounted here is the installation video: and PDF instructions: http://goo.gl/A9NQou
       
      We're excited about this project and what it could mean to the Porsche community.
       
      Please share if you know someone that could benefit from this.

      Sending a feeler on the auxiliary water pump. This is the pump that is located behind the left (driver's) side inner fender cover. It pumps water for the heater, basically. I've noticed it getting louder and louder so I'm guessing it is going out. I haven't heard or come up with much on a search. There is a TSB to add foam tape to quiet it down and I did a home-grown version to see if that would help but it didn't. But it really didn't make this much noise before. I was curious if anyone had replaced one before so I can guess how much coolant will need to be removed. Once you get to the pump it's pretty straight forward. Part number appears to be 95557215002.

      Hi Guys,
      I discovered that my 2005 CTT had about an inch of water in the boot.
      We had a particularly heavy downpour of rain recently and I assume somewhere there is another drain hole blocked, similar to the ones you get at the front of the car. Any ideas?
      I have dried the boot after removing everything from it, including the Bose SubWoofer (still don't know if it still works since it got wet) and poured water all over the back of the car but could not recreate the problem.
      Any help would be appreciated.
      I did find this post with the help of Google but without pictures it does not help very much even though it sounds like the exact problem:
