  1. Yes it was the cable. Needed a new clip. In and out of the shop in 30 minutes for $30. They do a great job at Stuttgart!
  2. I was driving home this evening and was shifting from 2nd to 3rd. Problem was there was no third gear. There was no grinding and clutch seems fine. Problem is in other gears also but I was able to get going in 2nd and then into 5th. I'm hoping to able able to limp over to my Stuttgart Southwest in Tempe tomorrow but was hoping someone would have some ideas tonight. Thanks
  3. First of all, it had better not be a "trickle charger"; they never shut off and slowly cook your battery. What you need is a "maintainer", which only applies current when the battery needs it, then shuts down. That will keep your battery in optimum condition without cooking it. Secondly, these cars are set up from the factory to have the maintainer plug into the cigarette lighter (it is hot all the time for this reason), so get one with an adaptor to do that............ Yes it's a maintainer but no cigarette lighter adapter So back to my original question, hook it up directly to the battery since I don't have a lighter adapter?

  5. So I won't be driving the car and have bought a trickle charger. So the stupid question is do I need to actually hook up to the battery directly or can I hook up to the terminals in the engine compartment?
  6. Loren, Thanks I'll bring it into the local independent (Stuggart SW) which does a great job. Any idea why the problem goes away once the car has warmed up and why only shifting into 2nd?
  7. 2002 Carrera 42,000 miles I've recently had a problem with shifting into second gear. It only happens in second and when the car has just started up in the morning. When I shift into second I get a grinding noise and it won't lock in. After driving a couple of miles everything is fine. Any ideas?
  8. Is there any preventive action that can be taken to prevent the regulator failure?
  9. Try 4602 or 4600 If you have not already read this FAQ - please do so... Lost Radio Code - FAQ, PLEASE READ THIS FIRST Loren, Thanks had to go 2 numbers higher - 4604 worked :rolleyes:
  10. Loren, Had to swap out my battery and as a result radio needs a code. CDR220 serial number 15001411. Thanks in advance if you can dig up the code. Howard
  11. Either a loose/bad connection or a bad sender in most cases. I'm experiencing the same problem with my 2002 911. I get the indicator failure message and the gauge goes to zero and then bounces back. Is this a critical fix or can it wait a week. How easy is the repair for a really technically challenged person? Can anyone attach a photo of it's location. Thanks in advance.
  12. Good deal Noor, very similar to what I drive! Warranty is an excellent bonus you're getting with the car! That's one thing I wish I got. congrats if you buy it, put up some pics Sam Make sure the extended warranty is really transferrable. some of them require the approval by the insurer. When I bought mine I had a PPI also and had work done by the seller which the policy covered. I called the warranty company (Great lakes) to do the transfer ( I think there was a $150 fee). Well a couple of days later I get my payment and transfer application back in the mail. They turned down the transfer. I guess they figured they'd forgo the $150 to avoid future claims during the remaining 15 months left on the warranty.
  13. I picked up a flasher relay and that was the problem. :D Loren, thanks for the help. If you're ever in Phoenix I owe you a drink!
  14. I picked up a replacement relay at checker. Installed but didn't work (suppose it might not be the right one but they said it is). Any other idea on what the problem could be? Thanks in advance!
  15. just to make sure I'm in the right place. would it make sense that the first two spots in that row would have nothing in them? I've got a a basic 2002 c2. Do I just give the relay a yank?
