  1. My car is a 2005 911 base model 997. I had a tune installed and am having some issues with it. I only had the tune done because I put high flow cats on the car and had a stumble. The tune company is wanting a data log with the following actual values. 1. Engine RPM > 2. Injection Time/Injection PW > 3. Ignition Angle > 4. Pedal Position > 5. Actual Throttle Plate Angle > 6.Actual Lambda Value Bank 1 > 7. Mean Fuel Trim Bank 1 > 8. Actual Lambda Value Bank 2 > 9. Mean Fuel Trim Bank 2 I started out trying to get this done with Durametric. The first
  2. Thanks to all for the info. They are sending a tow truck so they can inspect everything before it gets driven again.
  3. A shop overfilled my transmission on a 2005 997 6spd. They used the wrong fill plug. I drove the car from their shop home about 45 miles mostly highway before noticing. I called the shop and they said no worries they will take care of it but I would need to get the car back to them. I jacked up the car and placed level on jack stands. I pulled the correct fill plug and at least 2 quarts came out. by inspecting the transmission it looks like the fluid was coming out around the passenger side axle. Does anyone know what could be damaged by driving the car with an overfill
  4. Well I replaced the seat belt buckle on the passenger side and the circuit still says its open all the time in Durametric. Just to be clear it does not have a seat belt light or anything just while looking at the values in Durametric the circut never reads anything else but open on the passenger side. I took it into the dealer and at first they told me that the module is plug and play so no need to code it to the car. Than they said everything was ok according to their diagnostic systems.They told me they would need at least a half day to trouble shoot to why the airbag light is flashing. I g
  5. My airbag triggering unit failed again and this time I purchased a new one on line. I reset the faults with the durametric software and now it does not show any codes. My airbag light flashes about once a second now. I have also noticed that the passenger side seat belt buckle shows open in durametric values no matter what. In the durametric software it shows the POSIP triggering status to be not locked. Does this new triggering unit need to be activated by a special device or something? Any help on this subject will be appreciated!
  6. After several hours of trying to fish the cable from the wheel opening I watched some videos of the tail lights being replaced to get the location of this emergency cable. I also got a tip from a user on rennlist saying that you can go in through the base of the tail light and the bumper. Here is a YouTube video for future references.
  7. Great! I am guessing the wheel well liner will need to be removed or partially removed to access it?
  8. 2005 997.1 My engine deck lid will not open. The deck lid does not have a wing and is the factory regular deck lid. The open solenoid sounds like it is working but the lid is still tightly locked. I have tried pushing on it will actuating the solenoid with no success. Does anyone know if there a emergency release for the rear deck lid like the front hood has? Does anyone have any suggestions?
  9. Update...I ordered a used airbag Module from ebay for 94.00 and procured it today. I replaced the module and reset the codes with the Durametric system and all codes are staying cleared. Hopefully it will stay that way! if not will go with a new one. Thank you for your help! Love the site and the support!
  10. Wow! Does the computer reset its self if the problem goes away on these cars? I know some systems have to be reset and have a long lag of clearing codes after the problem has been resolved. I will get to the module tonight, disconnect the battery, and make sure the connections are good to the module. I guess outside of that, its replacement time. After I disconnect the battery does the computer have to relearn conditions like most other cars?
  11. Thank you! Do you know where I can get an OBD II Manual? I have heard that Bentley has a great manual that lists the codes but its for a 996 and I have not been able to find one for the 997. Just to be clear the 80BA code refrences software error in the Airbag Triggering Unit located under the radio or anouther Airbag Control Unit located elsewhere?
  12. New to Renntech and a 2005 997 911 6 speed! After driving it almost a month the air bag light came on. I have always done basic diagnoses and maintenance on all my other vehicles in the past but I am a little overwhelmed by this 911. I purchased the Durametric software/cable and got 3 codes(80BA, C152, and C140). I reset the codes and the 80BA code came back immediately. The 80BA code description in the Durametric software is Triggering unit faulty. My interpretation is a bad sensor or connection to a sensor or the airbag module. I am hesitant to start tooling around on this 911 before I get
