Recently, I just noticed that my remote key fob would not work properly after couple days if I don't drive my car. The light on the fob turns on while I press the Lock/unlock button but nothing happened. It will work fine after I insert the key into the keyhole(or ignition) and lock or unlock it one time. Car is MY03. Anyone has this kind of problem? Any suggestion or anything I should check? I don't know if the key will generate some random code and has an expiration date..... <_< I guess the milk in my frig has longer shelf life.......
If there is no better deal, you may want to try Suncoast for $312.5 http://e-partssales.com/Merchant2/merchant..._Code=POTE996WW I think if you wait patiently, eBay is till your best bet.

jimmy1117 replied to ltcjmramos's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Do they still sell this coffee mug? I should put one on my desk.....
jimmy1117 replied to Poursha's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I read some posts in other forums about some dealers may refuse the warranty if not using the Porsche factory SSK. Does anyone in Bay Area talk to any dealer on this issue? thanks.
jimmy1117 replied to Poursha's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Is the locking plate comes with the B&M SS kit? How much do they charge the installation at Akkurat ? Thanks. Jimmy
jimmy1117 replied to rattles's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I used to put the "Black Bra" on my old cars, but I am sick and tired of those "Ugly" things. I now have the 3M "Clear Bra" installed on my C4S(including Headlights and side mirrors). Those traditional bra won't cover your headlights. I believe it is a good investment on your P-car if you can find it in Australia. Could it be the reason that they are "invisible" so you won't even notice it? Here are some pics while the "Clear Bra" was installing. I got the same installers referred by Kirby.
jimmy1117 replied to a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I went to Claridge's Porsche today and asked the service advisor -- Kimo, about this recall. He did not if there is any recall but he did called the PCNA (?). After input the VIN, it said there is no open recall on my '03 C4S......... Do I need to do something or worry about this recall issue?
jimmy1117 replied to jimmy1117's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Thank you, Kirby. The tint looks really nice on your car. Does your Ceramic tint have that kind of mirror-like reflectivity like those they put on Lexus SUV(rear)? I heard about they do the window tint a store in Mountain View called "California ........(I can't remember)". They take off the widnows and put it on. They claim by doing this way, it is a better job and you can roll the window down right after you get your car back without waiting for overnight or days to fully cured. Is this a good way? Jimmy
jimmy1117 posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I think the weather in CA will be getting warmer..... B) Any recommendation(store/specialist) for window tint? Can anyone tell me the regulations in CA? How dark I can go? I saw the tint on Lexus RX330(factory), they have some kind of reflection from certain angle, like a miror..... what are those tint? Thank you for the advise. :cheers:
Jeff, I can offer several for your video shot if you need. Just wondering when the "Work on Cars Day" will be? I don't know if I can wait for too long.... RUF pedals Aluminum Hand break lever Door sills Console Spoiler switch .........
Can anyone share your experience(good or bad) with the Porsche Service Dept. around S.F. Bay Area? There are so many Service Depts around here, but which one is the better bet? Price, Quality of job, courtesy..... and whom should talk to in the dept.? The only one I have been to is Claridge in Fremont(nearby and on my way to work) so I have no comparison. Is it possible that this forum can create some reviews area for this kind of input for all the members? I think this kind of info will be very useful for a Porsche Owner. Thanks. :cheers:
jimmy1117 replied to OllieW's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)On other post, some people experienced the "Automatic Central Door Locking" function is not working correctly after the mod. http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=709 have you got the same problem?
jimmy1117 replied to jimmy1117's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Any one has idea why the Porsche manufactory puts different brands of tires on their cars(even the same model)? :huh: Production time different? Regional issue? or because I pay less? <_<
jimmy1117 replied to jimmy1117's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Just ordered the RUF pedals from Andrew at Weissach. $399 and FREE SHIPPING(4 pieces) :clapping: Thank you, Kevin. Your name is valuable ! :)
