  1. Weird thing is that unlike other msgs the current one about the ignition key failure DOESN'T show up in the onboard computer display at the same moment that the exclamation mark isn't lit up. Is the normal alarm system diagnostics a procedure to run exclusively through a PIWIS or might I run it myself as well? Does a Durametric also help?
  2. To my bad luck not even the spare key reacted the same way as the original one
  3. Loren, it's the original key NOT a copy. I'll take the car in the soonest possible and let you know immediately after the verdict is in place :cheers:
  4. You're right when saying this is a very common problem with the 996s and the older Boxsters. After a lot of googling and general searching I found out that this is also a known issue for 997 series. At least one certain owner at 6speenonline posted exactly the same failure, due to exactly the same cause which is battery replacement. Besides, there is another one at rennlist as well. Actually I didn't try the spar key as I originally rejected the idea :oops:. It really deserves a try, I'll let you know, in any case. Thanks once again for your input :jump:
  5. ONTF, the warning msg I get is "Ignition Key not Removed" Hope this might help the most knowledgeable of you guys
  6. Thanks Paulspeed... With all due respect I can't take this sort of answer in a technical forum such as Renntech!
  7. Today I replaced for a first time after I got the car the fully exhausted battery of my 997.1 GT3 MY07. The engine cranks perfectly fabulous, however when I came back from the typical checking ride and switched off the engine I noticed that the key was stucked in the ignition switch. RTFM depicted the quick procedure to tackle this issue, however the key still remains stuck each time I swith on and then off the engine. I googled the issue both to Renntech and elsewher, unfortunately I only found some DIY hints and tips about the 996/Boxster series, nothing about my 997 model. Q1: Does this f
  8. No worries at all about it...it's only WWF that would raise considerable concerns about that issue not you -:/ The boxer engine do normally behave that way...if you might ever see any GT3 starting up (mine included) then you would never complain about the white/blue puffs of your delicate engine... George quote name='englishempire' date='Jan 11, 2010 - 07:32 PM' post='164917'] It's just a puff that is just enough to cause concern but certainly not clouds! I will look into the castrol option but i will live with it for the moment rather than change the fresh mobil1 just yet!
  9. Hi Bolobar, if you're competent in DIY and wish to give it a try click this link as it contains a wealth of info on how to proceed with the installation at home. Enjoy!
  10. David, have a look here and here. They're both excellent sources for installing the Dension interface. :welcome:
  11. I'm afraid it's hard to find even the owner's manual of 997.1, let alone the shop manual.
  12. Same reason as for selling cars w/out limited slip diffs...price sensitivity maybe?
