swajames replied to swajames's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Thanks for the reply, Loren. I can take the TPMS sensors off my original OEM wheels and put them in the new wheels, though, right? I was just making sure we knew which part numbers were which so we didn't mix them up as this won't be done at the dealer. I think the 997.1 part number is 997.606.021.00 , was just checking if anyone knew the 997.2 part number.
Does anyone know the part numbers for the 997.1 and 997.2 TPMS sensors? I have an issue in that I plan to put the 997.2 Carrera S II wheels on my 2008 997.1 C2S and I'm trying to make sure we don't get the TPMS sensors mixed up... Thanks in advance
swajames replied to swajames's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Have tried running the dealer handover sequence with their PIWIS again? Thanks Loren, what does that mean or entail? I'm going to the dealer tomorrow (they still have the car) so want to make sure I ask them the right questions!
swajames posted a topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)I have a 2008 997 S convertible which I picked up in December. Every couple of days, I get a warning message when I start the car, reading "PSM in diagnosis mode". I have the car in with the dealer for some other things so I asked them to take a look. They say they have never heard of nor seen this warning message before. It appears there are no stored fault codes. In a nutshell, they're telling me they can't do much about it unless I bring the car in with the warning message displayed... I'm not too happy with the situation as something is causing the message, and I'd like to know what it is before I find out the hard way that I have PSM issues. I've been struggling to find references on Rennlist and 6Speed etc to this warning message, and I wanted to check here if anyone had any ideas on what it means and what may be causing it. Any ideas, guys?
I don't think so. One of the albums came from Amazon (from their MP3 store) and everything seems fine when I look at the tags and data using other applications, it just seems to be the car that can't read/display it! Thanks for the idea though - appreciate the suggestion.
I have a 2008 997 S. The car plays MP3 files just fine, and for most tracks the artist and track info is displayed properly and everything works as you would expect. On a couple of albums, however, the car struggles to display artist and track info (the text it does display is gibberish, but it's consistent insofar as the same tracks always display the same gibberish). If I look at the track and artist data in iTunes (select track, get info) everything seems just fine and it also displays fine on my iPods. Any thoughts? Can't find anything obviously wrong with the data encoded along with the tracks which was the first port of call. thanks!
I've had mine in for rattles under warranty. My dealer is struggling to fix it permanently (I have three specific rattles, one in particular is a real pest) but each time it's gone in it's been a warranty issue. Best of luck with yours
swajames replied to swajames's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Thanks Loren! Presumably that's the standard list price from Porsche?
I have a quick question regarding the price of a replacement engine for a 997. I remember seeing a post from Loren last year noting that a new 996 unit ran to over $25,000 (a little over half that if the unit was returned as a core exchange). A search on Pelican Parts this morning for part number 99710099703 indicates that a replacement motor for the 997 runs at $30,324. Am I right that this is the right part number for a new 997 engine (assuming standard price for the complete motor with no exchange) and what would the price roughly be if it were with a core exchange? Thanks!
belated update... Took the car to the dealer, ran tests for a couple of days, the long story short is they said they found nothing obviously wrong :unsure: Pads/rotors checked out fine and caliper pressure tested OK too. My dealer definitely took the issue seriously so kudos to them. Going to keep an eye on it and see what happens.
Thanks guys, I'm going to try to visit the dealer next week. I've never tracked the car and the brakes were fine until about a month ago. I haven't had any break wear warning lights and the pads look OK. Pardon my ignorance but is there a way to check the brake fluid levels? It's my first 911 so all this stuff is pretty new to me. Thanks again for the replies guys.
Hi everyone I have a 2007 C2s and I'm having an issue with the brakes. I've just gone over 9,000 miles and the brakes seem to have lost their stopping power and I've got a huge reduction in brake feel. My miles are mainly highway, and my car has never been tracked. The brake issue is a recent occurrence, until a month or so ago they seemed fine. I'm no expert but as far as I can tell, the pads are OK, I have no had no squeaking from the brakes, there's been no sense of any wear indicators coming into play and I have no sign of any rotor issues. Whereas braking used to feel connected and instant, it's now like I've got a pretty obvious loss of feel and what seems to be a real reduction in stopping power. It's to the point where I worry that the car would stop as it should if an emergency were to arise. I'll swing by the dealer and ask them to take a look but wanted to see if you guys had any thoughts on what might be causing this. Surely my pads can't be out at 9,000 miles!?!? Thanks
