  1. I'm in East Tennessee, near Knoxville. Thanks Loren ! Gary
  2. I just replaced the electric changeover valve on my 1999 to repair the Aux air system, and now I have an air bag light. My scanner wont communicate with the SRS, so I can't dump the code. I think I know what I did, I fired the engine with the passenger seat out of the car, thus the SRS module couldn't "see" the seat belt buckle. ( Stupid move ). I dont have the Durmetric s/w, so my question is: Is there any way to reset the system without a trip to the stealer ? I tried leaving the battery cable off for a couple of hours, no success :o I have taken a good look at the wiring under the seat to be sure I didn't have a problem there, and alls well. Any suggestions ? Thanks ! Gary
  3. Yes, if you disconnect the battery is does have to re-learn. Just drive it as you normally would - it may take 5 miles or so to re-learn. Loren, Thanks for the reply. I cleaned the idle air valve and it helped tremendously. Car went for 2 days without a problem, rock solid, until this evening and started again. I noticed when I was cleaning everything, the plastic hose that connects the oil seperator to the throttle body had oil in it. It was wet enough to cover my finger, so I cleaned it as best I could. Is there a procedure to clean the seperator, or is it replace only ? Also, is it possible that the two problems are related, as in, a vacum problem not venting the crankcase ? Thanks for your advice ! If there is oil in the throttle body then you likely have a bad AOS. This would also cause a vacuum leak (and corresponding fault code). Loren, The codes I had were 1410 and 1411 ( Secondary Air ) I cleared them first thing, and they have not returned. Never had another code. Last night I went back in and found the oil ( minor amount ) had returned in the J pipe, the idle air valve was clean. I removed the pipe and cleaned it, took it for a drive and it idled good in all conditions. I will get an AOS and replace it next week. I was told that the oil fill pipe required inspection, as they were prone to crack and cause a leak in the system, is that information correct ? Also, is there anything else troublesome, that needs inspection/replaced while I'm in there that you are aware of ? Thanks Gary

  5. I just bought and repaired a 99 for the wife. It had some minor right side damage and I do body repair. It sat in the shop for about 8 weeks while undergoing the repair, with the battery disconnected, and now has an idle issue ( may have been there prior to my obtaining it ) I have cleaned the throttle body already, without success. It wants to die at a stop, mostly when the A/C is on. Also noted that when your sitting still and depress the clutch, the idle becomes unstable, rocking between 600 and 800 for a few moments. I'm wondering if the ECM in this car has to "re-learn" the idle process, since the battery was disconnected for a long time. If so, does anyone know the proper process for this, or am I stuck going to the stealer ? Thanks !!
  6. Try 0981 or 0979 Hi Loren, had to go + 2 up to 0983 to get it, but I've got tunes again !! TYVM !
  7. Hi, hope this is enough info for a code search: 1999 Boxster Becker CDR-210 W 5022942 Thanks for any help ! Gary
