  1. No joy. I left a 12 ga wire connecting the 2 loose cables for about an hour. Any other thoughts? Thx again!
  2. Thanks for the responses. I'll give it a go in a day or 2 and get back with results. Much appreciated!!
  3. Like the title says, I changed the battery after the original died. Now the seat heaters aren't working. Checked the fuses. Didn't see any issues. The fuse panel doesn't specify a specific fuse for the seat heaters. I checked everything that looked like a contender, but no joy. Any thoughts on what to look for next? TIA!! 2005 987S Manual transmission Sport Chrono package USA
  4. Ok, I just opened my eyes and found the DIY section and service data. Thx Guys. Still wondering if it makes sense to have what appears to be the 20k service done for the price being asked.
  5. I'm just short of 27k miles on my 2005 987S 6Speed. My service light just counted down to zero. I called the local dealer to set up a service. They want $700 for what sounds like a glorified oil and filter change. I'm also about to go out of warranty so I've got a couple of things that I need to have looked at. What service items should I expect to be completed at this mileage and age? Any sources? I can do the oil/filter change myself. I'm really interested in what other items they would do. TIA! Dave
  6. I've got a 05/05 build date on a 987S M96/ 26 625 G8XXX Does that put me in the category of post new seal? Not sure how to interpret the "G".
  7. For those interested. $568 Work done at dealership. Parts: $269 Cabin Air Filter $94 Air Filter $49 Oil Filter $28 Oil $70 Engine Cleaner $25 Shop supplies $25 Labor $250 Warranty work for my model and build date 2005 987S 05/2005: W572 Wind Stop - replaced lower rubber buffers. W608 Air Grilles - replaced both air grilles on the front apron. W573 Caps on Enging stud - retrofitting studs for the engine carrier. W545 Check crank case for proper machining.
  8. Thx for the info on the VIN. I thought it was an engine code on the door, but nope. Its the vin and gone. The car has just under 20k miles. I bought it with 16k a year ago. There was an indication that the original owner changed the oil at 10k. Not taking any chances I changed it within a couple of weeks of purchase.
  9. TIA for any assistance. I'm taking my 987S in for its 20k service next week. This will be its first trip to the dealer. Is there a way to identify which TSBs apply to my car without checking them 1 by 1? Will the dealer do this for me? Do I need to request them to do the check? Any advice appreciated. Build date is 5/05 I know I want them to check - the shifter's adjustment. - I'm smelling coolant. I think the coolant smell is from a pressure relief valve under the fill stack.
  10. Looking for the torque spec for the exhaust tip on 987S. I removed to clean it up. Have it back on snug tight. Just wondering if there's a torque spec. Thx, Dave
