  1. no sir. which is why i suggest to send your cluster for repair as they can repair it and keep the same saved mileage or if you send them a used replacement they will update it Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. if you have no engine codes and your sensors and signal paths test good, consider having your instrument cluster sent in for repairs Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. agreed with the above . possible too lean of a fuel to air mixture. could be sour gas. could drain the tank and add some injector cleaner. ive used acetone before which worked great on old hondas but that shouldnt be used until you test for fuel pressure and also measure fuel volume delivery Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. now is the time to troubleshoot and isolate to the component level. id get a wiring diagram and check the path or signal from the dme to the cluster end connections. if you have a clear current path the next thing you would do is check with a durametric the live data stream of your rpm/speed and then you can see if the issue is just the cluster failure Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. from what i understand most of the fuel and temp guages are analog while the tach and speedo are digital which run on another circuit Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. we have decided to buy the enthusiast version of the durametric. once we can be sure of the exact issue, we will then send back the immobilizer to porsche and make them have to fix the issue under there warranty, if necessary .
  7. hi. the owner claims to me he bought a new unit which porsche dealer had programmed [emoji15] . i believe him but will open and inspect for obvious defects to the PCB bought a durametric to further diagnose any potential causes of failure Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. hi all. a little update. since the central locking did not work i wanted to isolate a switch, path of current to the wires or eliminate a fault in the ACM. attached is a photo of the diagram with my comments that proved the wires and switch are good and i also tested the LED forward voltage. so the switch is good, but alarm module does not respond to the trigger signals. i jumpered pins 4, with 2 and 1 separate to test its function. what does this mean and can we confirm a faulty alarm module here ??

  9. the P0600 was triggered with the ignition ON with ECM plug removed. just as I suspected, by reading up the code. now that i cleared it, its not coming back. thanks for the replies ! ill be looking into why the central locking system is not working. the key icon on a rocker switch in the centre console is doing nothing when i assume the doors should work. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. so i checked the four fuses good, and the orange power wire going to connector I pin 16 of the ACM and I get B+. there was one DTC and it was P0600 which I cleared and it didnt come back last on/off cycle with the ignition. it may have triggered as I disconnected either a DME connector or alarm connector while the ignition was on, perhaps. when i hit the lock button on the key making sure all the doors and hood closed i get one beep and two flashes on the key LED. i can open the driver door once its armed and the siren will go off. which means the alarm module not sending a signal to the lock
  11. the website FAQ says limited to three cars managed by VIN and programmed into the adapter cable. what exactly does this mean ? that once i say for instance do repair work on three porsche's that's it, I can no longer do another one ? or this means i can only work on three cars in one day ? very confused
  12. hey. thanks for the reply ! i was looking at the durametric website and wanted to know what would be the proper model or kit required to troubleshoot this job Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Do you think it's worth it to close the drivers door and arm the system to check for the flashing of the alarm readiness lamps ? After ten seconds if all its inputs test good, the readiness lamp will flash rapidly. If faults are found, the lamp will not flash during the check period of ten seconds. A fault condition is displayed by double flashing after the check has been terminated. However, I'm not sure if this would cause a no-crank condition, as the system is dis-armed when I'm working on it (I believe)
  14. Hi. Unfortunately I don't have a Porsche or access to a durametric scanner. I do have a generic scanner, do you know how I can get it to work though ? I tried before and it seems like it can get connect but that's it. It won't work completely if you know what I'm saying. However it is claimed as compatible with porsche 996 There's only one key, as far as I know. I read in the description of the Anti Drive off Feature "The anti-drive-off feature is activated when the alarm system is armed. If an alarm is triggered, terminal 15 for the DME control unit is
  15. LHD, Tiptronic, 1998 Carrera Coupe Hi all, new to the forum but I was consulting some existing threads in the public forums regarding similar and related issues before I started an attempt at this job. I have access to the full wiring diagrams for the vehicle, the pdf is "996 Wiring 1999-2000.pdf" and can be found on google. I had them printed out on large sheet paper so I could trace the wires and go through all the possible issues without having access to factory scanning tools. I'm an electronics and industrial instrumentation technician hoping to build more work experience and
