Thanks for the clarification.....Larry
Thanks....that would make sense. This information is very helpful!......Larry
Loren....thanks so much in pointing this out, completely overlooked the "second click" note. Tried it and the left one comes on and the right one doesn't, will now check the bulb! Thanks again for the prompt response! Just got the car recently and still learning all the bells and whistle's .......
While checking to see if all my lights were working, I noticed that the REAR Fog lights are not coming on (FRONT one's are coming on). Still need to check to see if bulbs are OK. After checking the Bentley Bible I see that there can be three (3) things coming into play; 1) Light Switch, 2) Fog Light Relay, and 3) possible faulty wiring. Does anyone have any experience in trouble shooting this issue? or insights into the problem? I do have a Durametric Diagnostic System but there is no info in the system that pertains to the Fog lights.
Hi.....yes your right....the most frustrating issue is trying to find the right info for the year car that you have. Even the 5 pound Bentley Manual doesn't have all the correct info and often times leads you in the wrong direction of the problem. Thank goodness for the internet and sites like RennTech! I would still be spinning my wheels on trying to correct such a simple problem if it weren't for the resposes that I have received from other "enthusiasts"........Larry
Job complete! Problem was in the "back-up switch". All I had to do was first get to it, remove it, clean the terminals and put it all back together again. Thanks again for all the help!! Larry
Thanks for the additional info.....will start working on it tomorrow! As you said the second time should be easier....now I can go in and put back all the parts that I forgot to put in the first time, ha, ha, ha
Yeah, when I first bought the car I ripped the center console out and repainted it along with putting a new shift knob and head unit. Wish I would have known then that the MFS was under the shift lever. During the refurbishment of the center console area I ditched the coin holder, and took out the ash tray and replaced it with just a small storage area unit that I got from Coastal Porsche. I may have some additional questions for you as I get into the thick of things.......more to come.
Thanks much for the fast reply.....no where in the Bentley Manual do they ever mention the MFS switch, only the gear selector on the side of the transmission and when they do discuss it, it is vague and ambiguous at best! Now things are making more sense. It is not even shown in the schematics. Thanks much for the help!! Larry
Have a 2002 Carrera 911 Coupe Automatic and am having troubles with my back-up lights not working along with my back-up video camera not coming on when the car is put into reverse. Checked fuses and lamps and they are OK and there are NO alarm messages. After reading through the Bentley Manual they advised that it "may be" a problem with the "Gear position switch" (neutral safety switch) located on the transmission. I also looked through the schematics and it appears that the Tiptronic Control Module takes the signal from the "Gear position switch" and outputs a "back-up light" signal. I have
