  1. Update on the car. Sent the ECU & immobilizer to "specialized in Florida". Key i got with the car wasn't programmable because it was missing the code tag. Got a new key and re-programmed the ecu/immo, the car is now fully functional (power locks, silenced alarm and hood/trunk actuators). The interior is completely reinstalled and I even got the engine under the car, connected the harness & ground cable and bump tested the starter. The oil level was also being read on the cluster.

The pics were taken when I got the car home and it was in a sorry state. It looks completely different today. Carpets are ready to go back in but I want to sort out the last of the gremlins first I can post my progress if anyone is interested. I’m just hopping to get a little insight from those who have already gone down this road with their 996

The only items not connected at this point is the CD changer, amp, actual engine and 02 sensors. Does anybody know if missing an

The history on the car: imported into Canada from Florida in 2007 Car has a irreparable tile in Ontario and was branded with a certificate of destruction back in 2006/ 2007 in Florida the car interior was completely striped including HVAC by prior owner because it needed a new front harness. For some reason it was received with a cut out fuse panel Car has a
