  1. i had a rattle there too, it was my whell lock and my tire gague in my passenger door storage box.
  2. This is a link to my car and my AVIC-Z2 install. It was a little pricy but well worth it. No it did not require rewiring. http://www.autosoundspecialists.com/comp-i...sche/index.html Good luck perry
  3. I had my PCM1 nav/radio/tape/CD changer unit removed and replaced with a AVIC-Z2 in-dash unit take a look this is actually my car before and after photo's. http://www.autosoundspecialists.com/comp-i...sche/index.html If the link does not show copy and paste. r/perry
  4. I have taken my 1999 C4 to the dealer for "backup lights not working" at least 4 times now. I'm told the position of the switch that detects my transmission is in reverse requires adjusting. My question is where is the switch located and how can I adjust and lock (locktite) it down so they will work without paying the dealer an hour every couple of months? My transmission is a 6 speed manual. Thank you in advance for any tips......... :D
  5. :thumbup: I run the higher pressure in my tires, and due to the hard ride I use 100% Nitrogen in my tires. The molecule is larger, not only is the ride a little softer, it's also not as noisy.
  6. Hi: I have a 1999 C4 with PCM I. I want to install XM radio in my C4 but I don't want an after market radio, or something hanging off my dash. I noticed a few photo's of XM installed in a Cayman with PCM I and the nav screen allowed display of the signal, station, title, etc. while the radio used the controls on the PCM. My question is does anybody know where I can go to buy, and or have installed such a system? Thank you, Perry :notworthy:
  7. Steve: Do you have part numbers? I have a C4 with nav and I want to put XM in the car. I have it in all of my other vehicles, and miss it in my C4. Thanks, Perry
  8. I for one would be very happy :clapping: and I will bring the pizza and brewski's :beer: I've ordered a decoder to install on my old Dell laptop, I can bring that along for members to use (if it's here before the work on car date) Thanks Perry
  9. Sorry to hear you are having so many minor issues that together are large. My 1997 daily driver has 136K miles I've had some minor issues arrise from time to time, but thanks to this BB I've been able to take care of them and keep on driving. I'd like to bring to your attention that a double beep when locking your car with key or remote is telling you the car is NOT locked - one of the sensors, top, window, door is not making a complete circuit and there fore the lock will engage and quickly disengage (double beep). It's not something you should just let go unless you never leave your car unattended...... just my experience :(
  10. Thanks Loren: I'll pull the light today to see if that's the problem. :D
  11. I have a 97 Boxster that I've just upgraded to Litronic's I followed the instructions on the DVD to the letter. My problem is the driver side parking light, or Day Time Running Light, which ever you prefer does not work. I thought it was the bulb, so I replaced it. Not the bulb. Can someone give me a hint where to begin my trouble shooting? All other lights work as advertised. I upgraded my "daily driver" because I have a loooong commute on a two lane winding canyon road (now I love that part) and wanted the extra light. I would appreciate any and all tips. :help:
  12. Buyer beware :eek: Not even on older model 924, 944's.
  13. :D Count me in - I'll supply the brew and snacks. Please tell me where and what time, I'll be there.
  14. :clapping: So is the 8th and the 22nd on? I would love to change my headlamps. I have a 97 with original lamps and a new set of litronics I'd very much like to put in. I've viewed the DVD several times but always chicken out when I pull into the garage to actually "do it". . . .
