OK, so I cleaned the drains...it was the 2 in front that were clogged. That said, I found a tube that was disconnected (see pics) but could not find where to connect it to...any idea where the tube goes?
Ckroeger replied to jcashen's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Sounds like the hydraulic pump ran out of fluid. Check this link
Got it...Working on that now. Moving on to the drains...will report back.
Loren...you were right all the way...but so much for my luck. The board is fried! The part number is 996.618.260.07 Can these be repaired? If so, who repairs them? I am assuming that if I replace it, it'll need to be programmed to the key? Is there a way to override this system?
Hi Loren, just an update...I was wrong! The floor is soaking wet behind both the drivers and passengers seats. I didn't notice it because I didn't look there...duh. anyway...now I'm certain that you're correct. I'll report back!
Hi Loren, Thank you for the advice. The car is dry...but I'll take your advice and check it anyway. I can smell the electrical burn in the car but haven't found the short yet. I'll report back.
Hi, 1999 Porsche 911 (996) Cab - Automatic Trans., Aftermarket Alpine Radio I'm trying to track down a bad alarm switch (I think). Following are the symptoms: 1. Alarm double beep when activating 2. Door Locks and Windows don't work (15 AMP Fuse C3 blown) 3. Battery is fully Charged 4. I disconnected the ignition switch, reconnected the battery and fuse still blows 5. I disconnected the door lock switch and fuse still blows 6. I disconnected the overhead light array and the fuse still blows 7. Car (basically) does not start (fuel pump works). Car will start intermittently, but maybe 10% of the time trying 8. I replaced the ignition relay (old one was working but showing some resistance on the ohm meter) 9. Problem surfaced when I stopped for gas, filled the tank and the car wouldn't start. I realize there's a lock on the gas cover...have not done troubleshooting on it as I think I have to remove the wheel well to get to it. 10. If I had a wiring diagram, it would make things a whole lot easier!!! 11. I connected a scanner...no faults...I got a green light...however, the scanner does not check the alarm codes Any help would be appreciated. Thank you
