    I'm driving it now (well, not right now), I just get "low rider" stuck in my head every time, because I have to lean forward to sit upright.

    Never asked, is your car a 6-speed or automatic?  Might make a little diff re ability to drive.  I obsessed over under slightest noise from seat motors, fearing that if seat got stuck I might not be able to push on clutch.

  2. I recall loosening the bolts to be able to lift the seat to get to that screw drive and lube it.  Then just crawled in from the rear floor to do as taking out the bolts was such a pita.  
    But if the seat doesn’t go forward and back I think your done.

    I recall the seat motors under there. But if the seat doesn’t move at all it’s likely a trip to the stealership.  Problem is how to drive the car. Could you possibly, just to drive to the shop, fasten a “booster” seat using the seatbelts.  Right, like a baby booster seat.  Temporary only of course.

  3. I always used Redline, but never had the issue you are experiencing.  Are you “speed shifting” it?  My issue was missing the shift from 2nd to 3rd when I “speed shifted” which has never been a Porsche thing.  Smooth shift motion, then never an issue.  Not sure if this helps you.  Hope your issue is not the synchro or throw-out bearing. That’s one reason it’s a C4$.... Good luck. 

  4. My memory is the car will attempt to lock itself. Leaving front up could trigger alarm.  Also, after about a week locked, door will only open with key, and alarm will go off.  Why don’t you back car into garage?  Also, get a trickle charger that plugs into cigarette lighter, leaving window slightly open for cord to go through.  Lighter is not switched, and saves you trouble of connecting charger to battery.  Good luck.

  5. There is just too much on this to cover quickly in one answer.  As Loren would say, “the search engine is your friend.”

    that said, my similar problem was caused by the wiring to the switch on very top of gas tank.  You have to go down to it by pulling off everything above it, like the battery tray, etc.  Took a few hours to get there, then 5 min to reconnect wires and remove nest of the mice that has chewed wires apart. 
    there could be other solutions.  Search away.  Have fun. Good luck.

    Welcome to RennTech :welcomeani:

     

    From the sounds of it, the company in CA sent you a different unit which does not recognize your keys.  You need to either get your original unit back from them, or you are about to spend a lot of money for keys, immobilizer, and programing at your local Porsche dealer.  These units cannot simply be swapped, they have to be programmed to match the car and keys.

    Agreed.  A trip to your local stealership seems to be on the horizon.  Good luck.
