  1. Did you do a top calibration after the repair? If not, then I would do that - use either PIWIS or Durametric.
  2. The exact model and year car would be helpful.
  3. Sorry, not a Porsche radio.
  4. First, read and follow the procedure in the Lost Radio Code FAQ
  5. 999 631 147 90 - Bulb 3W 996 731 531 01 01C - Mirror glass with frame (satin black)
  6. Photos are limited to 2MB each (prefer smaller) and must be in JPG, PNG, GIF, etc. format.
  7. Just about any scan tool will give you this necessary information on cylinder misfires.
  8. You need to run a fault code scanner. It will tell you exactly which cylinder(s) the problem it on.
  9. 986 is a Boxster and 996 is a Carrera - the roof systems are very different. The Boxster uses relays and the Carrera does not. The Carrera uses stepper motors - so the calibration is critical to proper operation. Both Durametric and PIWIS (and the older PST2) can re-calibrate the top but I do not know of other software that can.
  10. Exact model and year of the car are always helpful...
  11. Covered here many times before. Check the fuses - including the one on the amp. In some cases, a replacement amp cures the problem.
