Well I have a problem and not sure what to do at this time. 1999 C2 Cab 911. driver side rear tire area. There is a noise like something is grinding. I took off the tire and looked at the rotor and pads but they seem fine. I put the car in N and spun the rotor and all was fine. I drove the car to top of my street and rolled down the hill (car off) and still the grind noise. Does any one have a idea what this could be? Car has 197k miles approx. I have not looked at the bearings yet will do that this weekend. Thanks Dave
agee11 replied to violaGT3's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)189896 Miles and going strong. 1999 C2 911 cab. It runs and still looks great. I have had problems but nothing that is out of being normal ware and tear. Replaced Starter about 2, Alt, 3, Top has issues need to replace oil gets stuck at times. hoses, a/c evap went out that was expensive to repair daily driver. Love the Porsche name. I hope to get new 911 some time in the near furture.
After all this and that. The cause was a faulty Starter Relay switch. This relay switch is located behind the seat. The cover that goes over the back under the top. Release the cab top back window. Take out the clips that hold the cover and to the side of the cab motor there are replys there. After hours and hours this took me 5 min to get at it and replace the relay. Please let me know if anyone needs more information about this. Thanks for all who have tried to help. Sorry about not getting back with everyone right away.
No click from solenoid. Yes all lights do come on. I hooked up the computer but no codes showed up.
I tried the spare key with the same result nothing. I going to take the starter out which is a pain and have it tested. I was told that they DME if out would not allow the car to operate the alarm or the windows or top. I'm not sure what else to do. Anything else???????? I started already with the alternator....
Checked fuses, all good. Checked clutch switch and bypassed it. nothing. I can't hear the fuel pump. Is there a way to bypass the immobilizer to check this. .
Great I will check. Let you know what happens.
