  1. Hi all, 99 boxster. Removed and sent my injectors out for cleaning. Well getting them back in is a real knuckle buster. Is it safe to say by just lining the tips up and getting them in the intake and bolting the fuel rail down is sufficient? It seems they were more snug getting them out then they went in ….also goes for the rail side. Any tricks on getting the electrical  connectors back on? If after closing it all up and turning the ignition to on position and hopefully seeing no fuel leaks will this mean I'm all good to go? Don't want to worry about a leak driving a month from now. Thanks v

  2. Hi all, 99 boxster…,Does a CEL clear itself after the problem is fixed? I have means to clear it but would like to see it clear itself so I don't have to wait (for it to pop up again) or keep checking for pending faults. thanks v

  3. I did do that and all checked out.  My findings were:

    Fuel press Engine off 3.3bar

    Engine idle 3.1 bar

    FPR .51 bar at idle,....... that's why I decided to send the injectors off. On the right track?.....you think? V

  4. 99 Boxster 140,000 miles, Chasing around P1123/1125 Codes... which... I think shows that the DME is leaned the engine to max. I pulled and sent out my fuel injectors for cleaning thinking they maybe causing too much gas into the mix.(leaking or dirty). Am I on the right track? If there was a vacuum leak I figured it wouldn't be leaned out cause there would be too much air in the mix. Already replaced AOS,MAF,fuel filter, cleaned plenum and Throttle body. Fuel pressure and FPR seem ok. Thanks Vince

  5. OK .....so in the TSB it mentions a different set of instructions for 'MY 2002' and up which involves using the connector from the L side. I wonder if my Litronics(bought the assemblies used) are from a more recent year, essentially they're the same instructions except you're taping into the L High beam wire instead of the R. Worth a shot....see what happens. Thanks Vince

  6. Yes...there are only 3 wires....white tapped to white on headlight connector, ground ….and rd\brn  tapped to window washer. As per pelican instructions. It only works once if I turn the headlight switch to the on position then start the car.

    JFP ...counting on you.

  7. Well I upgraded my 99 Boxster w/ Litronics and its not working. This is the upgrade with Xenon lights and the control module which allows the low beams to rotate up a few degrees when turning on the high beams. I get the little dance when I have the light switch turned on before I start the car. The beams cycle up down then up again. This is the only time they move. Nothing happens when high beams are on. I checked the wiring pinouts, continuity, wiring (only 3 wires white,ground and power to wash nozzle. ) I also checked voltage. 13.7 V from wire tapped to washer nozzle when engine on, 13.7V from white wire when high beams are switched on. Everything seems to be wired correctly, the motors in the lights work and I have correct voltages. The only thing I can think of is a bad module(I actually tried 2 and got the same results) so they both would be bad or a bad light switch (but the high beams aren't activated from that switch) any thoughts on this? Thanks Vince
     

  8. Well ....spring is coming and I will probably start chasing my P1123/P1125 CEL codes. They spring up every so often....so far i drove 100 miles without the CEL but it is pending. 99 Boxster....new MAF/AOS Gas Cap/Oil o ring/cleaned Throttle body. Can I use one of those water based DJ smoke machines to find a vacuum leak. Or should I just buy a fuel press.regulator which is a little more than the smoke machine. Regulator pulled about 15'' of vacuum which is on the low side I believe. Fuel pressure 3.3 bar engine off and 3.1 bar engine idling. Where should i start. Thanks V

  9. Hi All, Adding the Litronic control module to my litronic upgrade (99 boxster) and don't want to spend 125.00 on a wire harness.(The only thing cheap about a porsche is the owner!!!) No luck finding a used harness or pigtail. So.....I was thinking of making my own harness using the correct crimp on pins that are available. I need to get a pinout for the module. I can make out that 4 wires for each side that go to the headlights(8 total) there are 9 other wires(sounds like too many to me) that are the mystery. If anyone has more info that would be great. Thanks V

  10. Hi All, I upgraded my stock headlights to the litronic xenons 99 Boxster and was going to take it a step further. Picked up the control module on ebay to have the hi beams do their little dance. I'm just wondering if there are any resources to find a used wire harness for the upgrade. I mean they are available for 130 bucks but if I can find a used pigtail I can make my own harness. Tips on finding a used harness PN# 996.612.988.00 Thanks V

  11. Installing after market heated seats cause I"m reupholstering. The heated seat kit include fuses, one for each side. Isn't the 1 fuse at the fuse box sufficient enough rather than having 3 fuses in the circuit. I'm tapping into #6 fuse which is unused(was for heated seats option). Thanks V
