  1. I just done a search and found a similar post last year so there is a lesson here. DO A SEARCH FIRST!!! RB
  2. Hello all, Has anyone suffered a loss of all the audible warning noises from the dash? or does anyone have any idea why, on my daughters 04 S there are no warning sounds for the lights left on, indicators, temperature or low fuel etc. She has been told it will cost circa $2000 to fix by a non Porsche shop and naturally she has concerns so she turned to her old Pops who now hopes someone here can make me look good here!!! Thanks RB
  3. Hell all, Can anyone point me in the direction of a supplier of the Dension Gateway 500. My son in law wants one and is going to take advantage of the cheaper prices in the USA so would like a name of a supplier that will get the unit sent to his West Florida address. Your suggestions are warmly welcomed Thanks guys
  4. That's normal, Alex So the Stigs first name is DC then????
  5. A huge sigh of relif on your part no doubt!!! Glad it turned out OK in the end Use a new version of the old carpenters mantra next time - Check twice drill once!!!! RB
  6. Loren, Do you reckon the guy might need to know about the two bolts on the wheel to undo first?
  7. Cheers Gundo, Handy tip I will try this next time, RB
  8. This I don't know as I said I can't access the config anymore (I will try again when I install the next update) If you do manage to configure it so the selection is made without "turning a page" then let me know how and if I ever do get the config up again I can change. Turning the pages is the one bug bear I could do without. RB
  9. Action, I have the Dension 500 and I have at times, had display issues with the unit and Ipod. the latest update has helped but I do "loose" the data on the screen from time to time. When I say loose I mean that the menus don't configure correctly. At first I thought I may have misunderstood the very poor instructions and configured the text incorrectly and I tried to access the Config by the 6 x switch operation. I simply can't access that config anymore for some reason. Having said that I don't seem to suffer with loss of the screen data anywhere near as much as before and things have sett
  10. Nice one Paul, Glad you sorted the codes out. I had a similar experience down here in the sarff with my code. Keep your eyes open on ebay for a nav disc. RB
  11. Paul, I had a 996 with PCM 1 (8 bit) which given your year was the same as my car yours will be 8 bit too. I seem to remember needing two codes. One for the Nav and one for the PCM. You don't say if you have two codes? RB
  12. Andy, I think what maurice is looking for is this touble shooting guide I put together some years back. Its a way to test the operation of the microswitches that sequentially operate when you press the button to put the top up or down. The idea is you test each circuit until you find the switch that is not operating. Favorites to give problems are the parking brake switch or the switch in the roof hook recepticle. Anyway try this link to the guide but you will need a voltmeter but don't worry if you never used one as I have a diagram showing where things go and when. Hope you find the p
  13. I have done my own and I never come across the need to do that. I have just checked Lorens instructions on changing rotors and there's no mention of having to carry out that job there. I have had no trouble and I am predicting you won't RB
