  1. After my key stopped being able to unlock my doors and being frustrated with the high cost of diagnosing the problem let alone fixing it, I started considering designing and building a replacement system that would implement more features. If I go through the process of designing this, I'd like to know if people would be interested in purchasing such a system for themselves. Some of the features that could be added: -Longer range -Decide what both buttons do on your remote (key button locks car, trunk button unlocks car, holding trunk button pops trunk) -Open or crack the windows with
  2. Figured it out. The attachment bolt was loose. Once you get a 15mm wrench back there to tighten it, the belt will loosen right up.
  3. Hello everyone. I'm attempting to replace the voltage regulator on my alternator, and as one of the steps need to remove my serpentine belt. It order to loosen the belt you are supposed to turn the 24mm bolt on the tensioner pulley clockwise. I've tried this and it looks like there may be a problem. After turning it many times and seeing nothing loosen, I reached the the back and felt whatever was carrying the tensioner pulley was also spinning. This is not good, right? Was this installed wrongly? I assume it's the number 4 in the pic below: Am I "screwed"? Any ideas on how to lo
  4. HI Loren, Just tried the battery reversal thing (I didn't get it until I tried it. I just shorts the two contacts because of the shape of the battery. Very clever.) Unfortunately, no worky still. Also, I don't have a second key, so can't try that. Should a key remote still work even with these fault codes? Thanks!
  5. So my keyfob stopped unlocking the doors and trunk. There are a number of threads on this topic, but not much of any resolution. Here's all the clues I have: Key LED does flash when buttons are pressed. Battery is good. I only have one key (but I don't think the key is the issue). Have unlocked the door and tried to use the keyless entry immediately after, no change. I have also started the car and tried to use the keyless entry immediately after, no change. I also reversed the battery in the keyfob for 2 seconds and then turned it back, no change. Durametric tells me: 49 - K Le
  6. How much interest would there be in a simple iPod connector for 996s with the CDR220 Becker radio? I am considering putting together some adapters that would allow people to use the line out and charge on iPods including iPhones and iPod Touch 2nd Gens. Would people pay $60 for this?
  7. My rear window seal has begun to come loose, so I am looking at replacing the top. Has anybody purchased the following convertible top? http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/NEW-PORSCHE-996-CONVERTIBLE-TOP-ROOF-99-00-01-_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQitemZ270620450359QQptZMotorsQ5fCarQ5fTruckQ5fPartsQ5fAccessories Any opinions? Thanks!
  8. Sorry Loren, just wanted this at the top and to clarify the question. Plus, this project needs to be complete today, so it's going without text display for now. And Becker is non responsive. Thanks
  9. Oh, I did actually forget to say that this is pre MOST and for the Becker CDR-220. Text display from a CD changer to a CDR-220?
  10. Thanks for the responses guys. This isn't the info I need yet however. I need to know if text info can be sent from a CD changer or other Unilink device. Anybody with a CD changer know?
  11. I'm working on an iPod integration project and I need to know if the CDR-220 is capable of text display. Can the CD changer display track and CD names if it's encoded on the CD? TIA
  12. Ok I got it, and I think I found a better way to do it. I tried just holding it down with four hands, but I couldn't get it to work. Here's the way I did it: -Put the bottom point of the crest through the hole on the gasket so that the bottom of the rubber is under the emblem and the top of the rubber is on the top of the crest -Match the lip around the bottom edge and hold it -Put it on your hood with the edge matched around the bottom but the gasket still above the crest on the top of the crest -Tighten the two nuts of the bottom, but do not tighten them all the way since you will
  13. I've moved this up here so you don't have to search through the posts. This is my proposed method for getting the gasket to fit on the hood crest: -Put the bottom point of the crest through the hole on the gasket so that the bottom of the rubber is under the emblem and the top of the rubber is on the top of the crest -Match the lip around the bottom edge and hold it -Put it on your hood with the edge matched around the bottom but the gasket still above the crest on the top of the crest -Tighten the two nuts of the bottom, but do not tighten them all the way since you will need room fo
