  1. Oh thanks....just so I understand, this is different from the “brake bleeding “ at the bottom. Also do you know where I can get a service manual and detailed instructions on brake bleeding on this 2001 996tt. 

    Also one last thing...the switch “Start/Stop” was pushed by accident, about 3 seconds, did I do any damage?  

     

    Thanks Loren. 


  2. Hi 

    Does anyone know what the attached pic does?  It was pushed by accident, bad mouse pad. 

    ‘PUMP MOTOR ACTIVATION ‘. Thanks in advance....

    Question:

    Also can you tell me what PSM -“ pump motor activation” does! See photo. 
    Thank you. 
     
    Answer:
    Hi Allan,
    Thank you for writing. Unfortunately, we don't offer such details directly. The Durametric tool is intended to be used with the Porsche service manual or another reputable manual for your car. The options within Durametric are included in our tool because the Porsche factory tool includes these same functions. As such, all options are defined by Porsche, not Durametric. For the brake bleeding procedure and the proper use of the Pump Motor Activation, you will want to refer to your car's service manual.
    If you have any other questions, please let us know.

  3. Ouch, that’s not going to happen for me. ? any other way of telling? 2 hr drive to the nearest Porsche shop. 

    I can clear the fault with Durametric, it does not come back on when started, when the car moves over 3mph the light comes on, s/b wheel sensors-no?

     

    thanks for the help


  4. Thanks for the information. Is there a way to test the battery/charging system?  Car is on a tricycle system, and seems ok, but I am in the mountains far from civilization..  maybe meter the battery?? Or voltage from the alternator?  Car drives fine but concerned about driving down the mountain. 

     

    Thanks again, much appreciated. 

     


  5. Hello all- quick question...tire pressure on front and back. Book said 36/44, would the 8 lbs difference cause a ABS/ PSM light to come on?  Iam in the mountains and temp differences cause tire pressure to lower. Shop here  said all tire pressure should be the same? 35 psi. This seems wrong to me. 

    First time owner and this tire pressure is causing these false abs readings when down/up the mountain.  

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  

     

    Thanks in advance. 


  6. 2001   came on. Long story short, every shop(non Porsche) said the pump/computer was bad and needed replacement 4,000.00>. I don’t have a Porsche dealer anywhere around so I just listened and watched. Come to find out the tire pressure was low, adjusted pressure and lights went out. 

    Question, how did it know the tire pressure was low, there is no TPMS system that Iam aware of???  Curious and new to Porsche. 

     

    1st Porsche I have owned and concerned about the car diagnostic,   Best to invest in  Durametric Diagnostic Tool.
