peckel replied to hi8ha's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I seem to be struggling with similar issue... what was the resolution for your issue here? Thanks in advance!
Greg, You obviously have been through my frustration as it sounds like many others have as well. Anyhow, I wanted to make sure I covered my bases before starting and I appreciate your help. Cheers! Peter
Keggers, did you have to remove interior portion of headliner to fix the base plates and studs? Is the back washer needed to fix broken studs and base plates? Thanks in advance! Peter
peckel replied to peckel's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Contribute I will! Thank you Loren. Peter
I am looking for installation instructions for the roof transport system for 996/997 coupe. Does anyone have a good link or write-up that I can reference while I do this for the first time? I bought used rails and new bike mount from Suncoast but need instructions for rail install. Thank you in advance! Peter 1999 Porsche 911 Carrera 2, coupe, 6 spd
That is what I said too... looks like ignition module and I am guessing that is black box on top of steering lock housing or maybe the alarm immobilizer. Was told VIN specific...
I have been told the car needs a new ignition signal converter... and total price at $450. This includes diagnostic, etc. and 7-10 days out...
peckel replied to moosey's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Moosey, I think you have gotten pretty good wear out of those tires. My experience has been 3 pairs in the rear per 1 pair in the front. I plan on around 10-11k per rear pair. I drive moderately hard to hard, street only.
Just put a friend's Durametric on it. Initial readout was of course P1602 from having the battery disconnected. However, from that was all we got. We tried to clear the codes and the module failed to initialize. We also attempted to connect to ECU for identification but to no avail. Has anyone had this occur on their own cars? What did you have to do? Any advice from here is appreciated but looks like only option is for the tow truck to the stealership.
You can get the workshop manual for '99 996 including the wiring diagram at http://www.cannell.co.uk/Manuals.htm . It may help you diagnose the electrical problem. Good luck. Thanks for the link.
I agree. I will try to find someone locally who has it or send her to the dealer. Maybe a good excuse to purchase myself.
Did I somehow trigger alarm immobilizer? Has anyone else done this whilst replacing ignition switch? Neither of my keys will start the car but when I test power on back of switch all works properly. Also, old ignition switch reinstalled does not operate either.
Yellow/Violet and Brown are the wires on the switch. Connect them together to bypass the switch. Thanks! That is what I figured. No success with the switch bypass. I have tested all positions on the back of the ignition switch and voltage outputs seems to correlate with according key positions. Tomorrow I will see if the start lock relay is getting juice. Beyond that not sure where to go.
On switch bypass, which wires go to which? I know yel/bro (2nd from right) has power...
I will bridge the clutch switch. Battery is 7 months old. I trickle charged and of course attempted to jump with no change. Dash lights mostly all stay on and no fuel pump or starter click. I will post back tomorrow. Thank you! Loren, These are similar symptoms to what I am having. http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?/topic/18667-help-996-wont-start-need-advice-fast/
