Hi guys. My car wont crank and i dont know why.
On the start lock relay there is no permission signal from the ECU. Directly starter will cranks and engine work.
I have fault code on bracke switch, but brake light work. And driver seat airbag.
Please help. Sory for my English.
I live in Boca Raton, I have a 2005 997 - 911 with 93k miles. I'm not a rich man.
I'm looking for recommendations for service and repair in the south Florida area ideally someone who would like to work on a gentle restoration
or a recommendation for a reasonable shop that will do good work for a reasonable price i.e. not dealer rates.
I need a replacement alternator i think as the bearings have just gone (sounds like that anyway) and all the belts should be due by now.
Anyone with experience in maintaining this vehicle who wants to earn a little extra please contact me or if anyone has a show they would personally recommend I'd be very grateful.
Rough idle + Code P0301after tensioner pad / camshaft work and what is correct " Actual angle for camshaft " spec?By Los996
This is a continuing repair to what started as a camshaft deviation out of spec leading to the replacement of the chain tensioner pads / brake pads / chain ramps on my 2000 911 - 996 5-Chain engine. Seen here:
That odyssey has since been resolved but I now have a new issue.
Removed camshafts, readjusted the camshaft chain timing "marker" positions, replaced tensioner pads, reassembled everything per factory specs.
On first start up got very rough idle and bad misfires. At first I thought it may have been my timing was off but went back and visually inspected all and all looked correct (visually). Upon further inspection realized parts guy had given me Bosch 7403 plugs instead of Bosch 7413 (2000 Porsche 911).
Switched out and installed the correct spark plugs and no more continuous misfires / backfires. Did the initial reset (wait 1 min with ignition on / turn ignition off / wait 10 sec) On the first start up it did misfired / back fired once but I assumed that was left over fuel.
Car now runs but very rough and threw 2 codes:
- P0300 : Porsche Fault code 62 - Misfire damaging cat. converter
- P0301 : Porsche fault code Cylinder 1 misfire damaging to cat. converter
Also, took these readings:
Actual angle for camshaft bank 1: -12.53
Actual angle for camshaft bank 2: 3.05
On positive note the main reason for doing all this work was the original problem / issue of tensioner / brake pad wear which was giving me a -10 / -2.92 reading is now:
Camshaft position 1 deviation: 0.00
Camshaft position 2 deviation: 0.00
So the question is now are the Actual angle for camshaft readings within specs and could incorrect timing be attributed to these new issues?
And... Do I have to give the DME time to "relearn"?
