Thanks again. I will do the search on replacing the sensor tonight when I can do it from a pc and not my phone!
Thanks Loren! It is the stock radio, but it has been making a loud interference noise at random which is why iI thought it might be the cause. Is there a test procedure for the interior sensor (I assume this is the one behind the alien eyes) or do I jusr have to replace it? Is there a good resource for listing the switches and sensors and what alarm code/zone is generated with each?
Loren, i set the alarm with the double key press to disable the interior motion sensor and the alarm never triggered. My assumption is the interior sensor or the radio connection. Do you know if the radio alarm wire is tied to the interior alarm?
Thanks Loren! Also my stock stereo has been occasionally sounding like there is interference for about 5-10 seconds. I am going to order the stereo removal tools and pull the stereo to check the wiring there as well, Going to try to set the alarm tonight and disable the motion sensor to see if it still goes off to help isolate the source of the issue.
Could use a little help! My alarm is randomly going off. The doors lock, the alarm sets, and no horn beep as normal. After an hour or two, the alarm just starts honking so I can't leave my car locked anywhere. Hooked up my Durametric and got alarm code 60 (frequency 1) and alarm code 33 (frequency 2). Thought I could set the alarm and check frequencies again once it went off, but they did not increment. Next step is to set the alarm and disable the interior motion to see if it still goes off. Do not think it's related, thought I'd mention it though, but the car was recently in the shop for a clutch/AOS/IMS Retrofit/RMS. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks! 2000 996 Cab

DFC69 replied to wrljet's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Might be vacuum lines for PSE?
DFC69 replied to DFC69's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I decided to go ahead and install them (seller was ok with this) to see if the sound was affected and it was. I do not think the "light sand" sound when I shook them was causing the issue because one of the cans sounded fine. The other was horrible. It sounded like something broke loose inside, so I will be returning them this week. This was my fear too, but I was hoping... I am very bummed out as I have wanted pse since I bought the car.
DFC69 posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Please help! I purchased a used set of PSE cans, and when they arrived, they sound like there is a lot of metal shavings rattling inside them. Are they shot, is this just the beginning of the end, or are they ok? The seller has indicated that they sounded great on his car, and recommends that I install them to see how they sound. I know it is not much to install them, but I am in a cold area, so it will be a bit more of a project. One actually sounds like it has a larger "chunk" inside. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

DFC69 replied to JSmith5690's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)There is some good information here: Link
DFC69 replied to st4rk's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)The above is good advice regarding Sunset Imports (Oregon) and Suncoast (FL). These are the best places to order OEM parts with the best prices, and they have great service too. I recently got a quote for the side vent and it was considerably less than $107.
DFC69 replied to Fluke996's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I plan to do this when it gets warmer here... Dupli-Color makes a brush on kit. Here is some good reading on the subject with a few options. Most use xenonmods for the decal. http://forums.rennlist.com/rennforums/996-...ipers-pics.html http://forums.rennlist.com/rennforums/996-...d-top-hats.html
Yes, This part is to protect the top when the metal "hook" it latching. If you need to operate the top without this piece in place, you must lower the top and manually move it away from the latch before you continue - the metal latch will damage the top otherwise! I believe I paid under $30 from Sunset Imports. Here are some pics of it installed.
DFC69 replied to Caguy's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Just my .02, but I would not add a crest to a steering wheel airbag. If the airbag goes off, you have a pointed metal projectile aimed at your face. The OEM crests are riveted to the airbag.
