The plot thickens. My dead pedal issue has started up again after going away for weeks with replacement of a new throttle body. Now I am wondering if there is a sensor issue too at the pedal. Any ideas?
That's good to hear. It fixed my problems too.
Follow up to the above post. I had the throttle body replaced and it cured my problem. Hopefully this helps
I have a 2005 and have the sane problem, as well. Inititally had the throttle control module replaced (drive by wire) which solved the problem for a short while. Problem has since recurred and is at the shop as we speak. The problem is that no faults are triggered, and unless its on the PIWIS running when the problem happens, it seems difficult to diagnose
Finally got around to replacing the cabin trunk switch. Part was 60 bucks at Suncoast . I was able to pry the old mechanism out without having to remove the door sill, Plugged in the new switch and snapped it in place. Problem solved
Still on my to do list. The part is around 60 bucks, I just havent gotten around to doing it. Once I install it, I will post my results
I removed the battery and checked the unit under- thankfully no damage. Mouse focused only on air filter. Upon reconnecting battery etc I get a "PSM failure" - is this something that will resolve itself after some time driving or do I have to take car to dealer or reset something. any help is appreciated. thank you. Will reset itself once you begin driving
Thanks Loren. I might just order a replacement anyway
Durametric shows front luggage compartment unlocking fault
Loren, I have Durametric and it did show a trunk unlock fault. Could my switch for the trunk release inside the cabin be faulty.? My trunk release switch is kinda loose from me pulling up to hard on it one time.
Well the dilemma continues. I replaced the trunk microswitch yesterday and got a 2 AM wake up call today by my car alarm. Now I am thinking that the interior motion sensor may be bad. What is involved with replacing this part. I understand that it is in the arm rest compartment ...
Thanks Loren, I assume that the microswitch is labeled Number 9 on your picture
I have a 2005 C2 manual coupe that has lately had the alarm go off every 10-12 hours. Problem seems to go away if I double click the remote and turn off the motion sensor. I ran the codes on my Durametric and had the following codes. (8042) Front Luggage Compartment unlocking which leads me to believe that the trunk sensor is faulty. What is involved with troubleshooting this problem and is fixing it a DIY type project, what parts would I need etc??
Ajayabb replied to motman's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)I had same thing happen to me a few weeks ago. Turns out the cable to the spoiler motor had become unseated. I believe it is located on the right hand side of the engine compartment and connects to a coupler. Just check that connection to make sure you don't have the same problem as I did.
