ON the 2009 turbo I picked up I was struck to see that it didn't have the aux port or satillite radio. I would love to have both but at least an Aux port so I can at least listen to my music on my I phone. I do have blue tooth so I can use the phone. Interesting that a car that expensive doesn't come with that stuff standard but Porsche does like its option lists and associated costs. Can the factory parts be installed to at least pick up the aux function or is there a good aftermarket option? Appreciate any and all advice!
I just picked up a 2009 Turbo, 33K miles. The car is in pristine condition looks almost brand new. One item has come up. Several times when turning off the car I get a message that the parking lights are on, when they aren't. Doesn't happen everytime but has cropped up. Any ideas, bad headlight switch? I am going to double check but it may occur after I have had the driving lights on, so I am going to try to see if there is a correlation. Only mod to the car is a passport radar detector which has already saved my wallet some pain. Any idea on place to start looking at?
rexbd replied to rexbd's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I did some research and you can't buy the seal from Porsche you have to by the frame piece and seal. It would cost over $400 to fix a piece of torn rubber. I love my car but sometimes Porsche's pricing is insane. Thank god they make black duct tape.
2002 C4 Cabriolet Any one replace the seal on the convertible top. Mine tore on the passenger side where the small rear window comes up.
I did pull my and clean up the contacts and the switch started working again without a hitch. I am guessing that you will have the same luck as they get a little corosion and then won't work. I didn't have to buy a new switch and it was a pretty easy repair.
2002 C4 Cabriolet I replaced the original cassette radio with a CDR 220 (cd) radio. Everything worked great for months now all of a sudden the radio won't shut off automatically when you turn the car off and remove the key. You can turn the radio off manually but wondering why this problem has popped up.
rexbd replied to rexbd's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)FIGURED IT OUT. MAN MY EYES ARE BAD. GOT THE RADIO OUT AND WILL SUBMIT SERIAL NUMBER IN CORRECT POST TO GET CODES.
2002 C4 with tape deck radio. Bought the keys to remove the radio and cant' figure out where to insert them. I did a search and can't find a picture any where on how to do this. Feel like an idiot because I know this has to be easy. Need to swap out the radio for the CDR 220 I bought so I can plug in and get serial number. I got the serial number from the side of the CDR 220 and submitted that to get help with the radio codes but was told I have to get them off of the radio face. I have to swap out the radio and get power to it before I can do that and can't figure out how to use the "keys" to get the old radio out. Does someone have a picture of where to put the keys.
rexbd replied to rexbd's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)This is a new problem so I will look for these items. Car has 56K miles and I have only owned for 9 months so don't know full repair history. Was considering having the 60K service done a little early before I drive the car after winter is over. I am aware of a couple of companies that sell systems for reading codes so I thought I would pick up one so I can stay on top of things better. Thanks for the advice. It gives me a place to start.
2002 c4 tiptronic. Noticed problems with delayed upshifts. Particularly noticable if you pull away briskly and there is a pronounced delay in upshifting when you get off the gas. Car hangs in gear before upshifting to next gear for up to 10 to 15 seconds. Any help with why this is happening and how to diagnose?
