I Have the Toyo Proxies S/T (2's?) (20's) and really like them. 1. cheap 2. great tread for rain and dry 3. no noise 4 cheap.
I'm curious on the Durametric 3 VIN limit. What happens if I were to sell a car, is there any way to delete that vin from the memory?
So based on your estimate, it would cost me ~$92 to replace/program my keyfob and keep the blade? They get you for the $125 if it is programing 1 key or 2. So figure around $47.00 for the remote and $125 for programing. Just call and ask them. Maybe they will charge you 1/2 hour labor.
I just got back from the dealer and now have two fully functioning, brand new keys/remotes. Total cost: $125 to program both keys (and cut one key blade) $47 for new remote only $91 For compete key/remote Total $263 for two new keys/remotes programmed. I'm cool with that. They waived the $45.00 charge to cut the new key blade for the complete key/remote
Hello all. The key fob that came with my new to me 2004 Cayenne S will not unlock the doors, but will pop the rear glass (Switchblade style key). So I called the dealers for the prices on the key/fobs.... Man- some dealers are clueless. Some quoted me $240+ Programing...... for a single key. Then told me I could not order "just" the remote. So with some help of my friend, we found what the dealer could not find. I like proving people wrong so here is the info: Remote only p/n 000-043-207-19 (I paid right around $47.00) Complete Key (blank that needs to be cut-Dealer can do it) and remote p/n 955-637-244-04-01C ($91.00 Sunset Porsche) So tomorrow I am going to the dealer to have them all programed to my car with their computer.... They wanted me to spend $480 + Programing... LOL Now the question on the Immobilizer. If I remove the key blade from my old key and attach it to the new remote only: Can I started the car if I hold the original worn out fob (with correct "Pill") as I turn the new remote/key in the ignition? Or does the immobilizer need to contact the metal of the key blade to activate the correct programed "pill"? I hope that makes sense.
I have the same issue. Did you ever get a DIY instructions?
I think my 04 CS car is due for a new Water Pump. It is getting noisey but has not started leaking yet. 50k miles. Loren- It been a long time :) Anyone happen to have a DIY for the Water Pump replacement? It should not be too hard. Any info/ Part #'s would be great. Thanks, Chad
C.Plavan posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Hi guys it's been awhile. Loren, long time! I sold my 996 about a year ago knowing the Cayman S was coming- I placed my order yesterday. I opted for paint to sample, so it will be a long time till I get it. But here is the photoshopped picture. Its the same color as my 911 racecar. Waiting suxs
Its a very easy job. All you do is remove the airfilter housing (1 bolt) and unscrew the hose clamp on throttle body. Drain coolant from tank out from the motor bolt on bottom of engine. Just the coolant from the tank, not the whole system. Then remove the 3 bolts that hold the air pump on and move it out of the way (zip ties worked well) then undo all the coolant lines going into the tank. Remove the 2 fuel line connections 17mm and 19mm. Then the fun part of maneuvering the tank out. Do not forget to unplug the sender wire on the bottom of the tank. The new tank was a bit harder to maneuver in. With a little force it will go in. It's a joke the dealer charges $600 for that change. It is as easy as an oil change. Next step is to take the car to a do it yourself car wash and spray all that crap off the tailpipes and underside.
Well my 99 had a cracked coolant tank. I just replaced it today in about an hour. I was expecting it to be a really tough job. It was really easy. And to think I was going to have the dealer do it for $600.00..... What are they smoking??? Parts cost $230. Anyway, the car and I are happy campers now. I have a buyer coming to look at the 996 this weekend. sniff, sniff :(
C.Plavan replied to Hank Cohn's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Hey Hank. Please tell me you still have my old Speed Yellow 993???? :) How did the RS conversion go? As for shocks being the same as the 993's and wearing out quickly, the opinions are mixed. My car has the M030 and 33k miles. I'm probably going to swap them out at 40k. So hows everything back east with racing? Chad
UPDATE: Now I need new key heads. Because they do not work with the new immobilizer. Price now is in the $700's total. Great... thanks Porsche.
It was the immobilizer that took a crap with only 33K miles on the clock. The shop says they have replaced 3 others. They hooked it up to the computer and it didn't even recognize the immobilizer. There goes $300 to $400 on a crappy Porsche part that will fail again in the next few years. Not to mention the pain in dealing with Porsche to get the new codes for the new immobilizer.
It shouldn't because the car has worked fine since Sept. Thats when I changed to ignition. I think the immobilizer is what you are thinking about. That could be my problem.
