AP 997S started following Need part number for oil filter and air filter Boxster 981, Jӓger4Smobile Died Today, Sport chrono issue and and 7 others
AP 997S replied to Jager's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Sounds like a coil pack has failed.
AP 997S replied to JG07997's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)I might suggest taking a look at the owner's manual. If I recall it's on the PCM menu (don't recall what section) and is turned on/off via the stalk. ps. Make sure you have 'Sport Chrono' . . . Do you have the 'wart' on top of your dash board?
AP 997S replied to d0lph1n's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)I’m not the guy looking for this info.
I suspect it's the front trunk control module. It was a pretty common problem on early (i.e. 2005) 997's. My old 997 suffered the humming phenomena and it was correct by replacing the front hood control module. I could be wrong but the humming is a tell-tale sign.
TPMS was not standard in MY2005. It might have been optional but if you aren't getting a TPMS error signal I suspect your 997 doesn't have it.
AP 997S replied to HalM's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)TPMS was not available in 2005. At least my fully optioned old Launch Car 997S didn't have it.
AP 997S replied to d0lph1n's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)If it's a factory installed PSE then I believe the PSE switch is connected to the DME. I believe I have a PDF of the 997 install technical bulletin which shows the direct connection to the DME. If you want it send me your email address via a PM and I'll try to find it and send it to you.
You might try a 'hard' reset by disconnecting the battery for 10 minutes or so. Does anything on the NAV side work? Can you set up a drive to location or see a map on the PCM screen? I think the antenna connection (as I recall) is on the PCM unit. You'll need to get to that by pulling the PCM out or getting a look behind it. A 'friendly' dealer might do a 'coutesy' reset for you.
I had the same type of problem on my old 2005 997 when it arrived from it's previous home. I had my local Porsche dealer reset the NAV and it figured out the current location afterwards. I don't think you need a new DVD just a 'hard' NAV reset.
AP 997S replied to griss's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)I feel the pain. I sold my pristine 2005 997S (early VIN) a year ago today that I too had for 7 years. I was getting worried about IMS failures even though I religiously took care of it. I no longer have the 'IMS Cloud' overhead since I bought a shiny new 981S. GL . . . .
AP 997S replied to griss's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Do some research to see if your VIN falls in the group covered under the class action suit. I'm afraid that even if it does and your not the original owner or were covered under Porsche's extended warranty program all you'll see is 25% of the C.A. payment. Look into the 'fixes' offered by LN Engineering, EPS, etc etc. Of course you'll need to determine if the bearing debris migrated throughout the motor which normally means a complete tear down & inspection. Hopefully you have a competent independent Porsche mechanic for this work. GL . . . . .
re: 2014 Cayman S 3.4l Is the Mahle OX336D oil filter equivalent to the OEM 9A1-107-024-00 filter? Thanks . . . .
