  1. When clicking on "View New Content" I get the error message: Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 134217728 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 5816403 bytes) in /home/renntech/public_html/forums/ips_kernel/classDb.php on line 1475 I was last logged on last night. I have cleared cookies, cleared browser cache, closed down and logged in again, all to no avail; I keep getting the same message. My profile setting is "Show me all new content since my last visit." Any ideas? Thanks. --- Tom
  2. Try this site. Page down for the wiring info. http://www.bombaydigital.com/boxster/projects/trailer/ --- Tom
  3. When you have a p/n with an M-code in the "Model" column, simply right-click and select M-Pages. That'll bring up a complete list of all the codes. --- Tom
  4. Try out the wheel offset calculator at http://www.1010tires.com/WheelOffsetCalculator.asp. --- Tom
  5. Front trunk light not working on my '99. Bulb, fuse, and light socket all check out OK (swapped socket with rear trunk). Before I tear into the wiring harness, I'd like to rule out the switch itself. Anyone know where the "turn on the front trunk light" switch is located? I don't see anything obvious that would trigger the light when opening the trunk. --- Tom
  6. The car is a '99 986 Boxster but it's got a '99 911 3.4L motor (non-egas). Heavily tracked. I've got a list of all the DME Setpoints for the motor but I don't understand what the values for "Spec. Air Mass" and "Spec. Air Adaption" are. What is "Spec." an abberviation for? "Special?" "Specification?" --- Tom
  7. I'm just starting to use the Durametric to diagnose some occasional rich running conditions (strong exhaust smell). Can someone help me understand what "Spec. Air Mass" and "Spec. Air Adaption" are? (What is "Spec.?") I'm getting somewhat high readings on "Mass Air Flow" and "Spec. Air Mass." I'm currently suspecting a slightly cracked oil fill tube. -- Tom

  9. Hi Anthony, I see you're in NYC so you may want to look into joining the Metro New York Region of the Porsche Club of America (PCA). See our Web site at http://www.metronypca.org/ We've got a New Members meeting taking place in Jericho, Long Island on Thursday evening, Feb. 28. You'll have an opportunity to learn all about our Driver Education program and all the other activities that we host during the coming year. --- Tom
  10. Where does one acquire the mentioned "Porsche OBD II 5.2.2 Service Manual?" --- Tom

  12. The last couple of times I bled the clutch, I simply pumped up the Motive Power bleeder and opened the bleeder valve for a few seconds, just like the brakes. I'm now looking to do it the "right" way. In the "Brake/Clutch Fluid Change and Bleeding Instructions" DIY, I'm a bit confused about the clutch bleeding sequence. IIUC, the clutch pedal is held down (with a piece of wood), the bleeder valve is opened for at least 30 seconds, the wood is removed, the pedal is pumped slowly for 60 seconds, pedal is left at the top of it's movement, wait 90 seconds, then close the bleeder valve, pull up the pedal, then pump slowly a few times. Does the bleeder valve actually stay open during all the pumping and waiting? Is the the Motive Power bleeder supposed to stay pressurized during this entire process? Thanks! --- Tom
  13. Jeff, as usual, you're the MAN! Many thanks. --- Tom
  14. Need to replace my door lock module. What size Torx (I assume it's a Torx) is required for the screws that hold the module in (accessible from the door jamb part of the open door). Bigger than anything I have which means a trip to Sears tomorrow. I'm thinking T-40 or T-45. Thanks. --- Tom
  15. Thanks, Loren. That's the first thing I thought of. But would a failed microswitch precipitate the other faults I'm seeing? (e.g, alarm error double-beep when locking an open door). The handle switch *seems* to work OK since the window drops when I pull it and the window goes back up when I release it. The ringer is that the system doesn't appear to know that the door is actually open so the window should stay down. Is one of the functions of this microswitch (key #5 in your diagram) to know if the door is open or closed? If so, then I agree with you and I'll get a new switch. Thanks. --- Tom
