  1. Good to know....thanks guys for your input
  2. Anyone know if the current wiring in a 2000 2.7L 986 will work "as is" with replacing the lights with the Litronic lights? OR, does one have to buy a wiring harness to connect them? BTW - I'm not talking about the bulbs, but the whole assembly; left and right side Thanks, Will
  3. probably the fuse. I had the same problem. BTW, mine now blows a fuse every time I adjust the seat While leaning back in the seat. I've gone through 5 fuses. Finally, I found that if I lean forward I can adjust the seat without blowing the fuse. I guess the load on the motor is too much or something. Good Luck
  4. Hey Gus, I just looked up the confirmation and it shows DELIVERED. Check it out. Label/Receipt Number: 0307 3330 0001 3789 7954 Status: Delivered Your item was delivered at 10:30 AM on January 25, 2008 in JERSEY CITY, NJ 07310. You can go to USPS.COM and put in the Label/Receipt Number (above). Take Care, Will
  5. Gus, take a look at this. http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?s...=console+delete it shows the brackets. All you need is a Phillips screw driver and perhaps a butter knife to pop off the face plate.
  6. Hey Gus, The brackets I'm sending you just "pop" in place. they just clip on the sides and allows you to then screw in the a/c assembly. I wish i took pics when I did mine, but believe me....it is VERY easy. The brackets go on only one way. the cables just need to be pulled from back and routed to the top. As Loren stated, it's been covered a lot here in the forums. Some one might have some pics. -Will
  7. sounds good. I hope it all works out. I'll be on the look out for your msg. -Will
  8. actually, I do. do you want to check to make sure that part number I gave you is going to work on your car. the brackets came out of my '00 2.7L let me know what you want to do. If you do want them, send me your address. -Will
  9. part number 996.573.501.00 I still have mine from when I moved my a/c to the bottom console. If it turns out you need them and/or you can't find any I'll be happy to give you mine. just pay for the shipping. let me know. -Will Capp
  10. I did the opposite. I added the cup holders and moved my A/C to the bottom. It was really simple. One caveat. you may need to have the a/c brackets for the upper console. 1. pop off the front face plate of the cup holder (butter knife works well) 2. unscrew the cup holder assembly (4 screws on mine) 3. slide out cup holder assembly 4. remove the left and right brackets (mine pop out) 5. pop off face plate to a/c 6. unscrew a/c assembly (mine had 2 screws) 7. slide out a/c assembly part way 8. disconnect the 4 wire modules (they are different colors. I used a small flat-blade screw driver to press down on the top of the wire module to slide them out) 9. thread the a/c cables behind the lower console to the upper console. (this could be tricky, but just follow the cables and slowly slide them through. 10. put in the a/c brackets for the upper console (mine just snap in place) 11. slide in a/c assembly 12. connect wire modules 13. screw in a/c assembly 14. pop on the a/c face plate. I hope that helps. Good Luck!!!
  11. How do you find these articles???!!!???? I do searches all the time and get tons of lists or nothing pertaining to what I need. Maybe I'm just not searching the way I need to. Thanks for the link. That sheds some light on the picture. I guess mine was removed and a third-party actuator for my DEI Viper alarm system. I guess now I know that plug has to do with the trunk actuator and nothing to do with the spoiler....which leaves me with still unanswered questions about the spoiler. Thanks again TP!!!
  12. I'm trying to troubleshoot this thing and I have another question... When the spoiler goes down does it make any clicking noises when it reaches the end of it's travel? Is there some part that limits travel of the spoiler or tells it to stop applying power to it because it has reached it's lowered position? Any help would be great!!! -Will
  13. Anyone have a pic of the Bowden cable with Servo motor unit? I have a drawing of it from the Bentley, but it looks like a potato1 :o Thanks!! BTW - its 4A on 55-19 of the Bentley (for 2000)
  14. Will: From the diagram that Loren posted at 8:32 p.m. on your "Rear Spoiler Comes Up at Speed" thread, it looks like the mystery connector is the one that goes to the "Tailgate Opener", as that one in the diagram shows the exact wire colors that you describe (i.e., a red wire, and a blue wire with a black stripe). What do you think? Regards, Maurice. yeah, that's it. THANKS!! I didn't see the colors denoted on the schematic. Thanks again! -Will
  15. Maurice, you're right!!! DUH!!! I went back and looked at the diagram. I didn't notice it earlier. Thanks for your help
  16. Yeah, I should have included that. one is red and the other Blue with Black stripe
  17. thanks guys! I also printed off the diagram from my Bentley. I did notice on the diagram there was something shown above the Left Spoiler extension relay called "TAILGATE OPEN" and labled N86. Anyone know what that is about or where to physically find it?
  18. There is a cable not hooked to anything in the rear trunk of my '00 2.7L. Anyone know what it goes to? I looked up the connector in the Bentley and it is connector B02A24 - See Below
  19. I replaced the spoiler retraction relay. Still does not work. the dash light stays on. the spoiler goes up at speed, but does not go automatically down. I have to turn off the car and then turn back on and manually lower the spoiler. Anyone have any ideas?
  20. I found these codes on a website. I'm not sure if anyone has seen these, but I thought I would post them I tried them last night and it worked. This works on 1997-2000 boxsters. To access diagnostics: Hold down the Recirculating & Air up buttons for 5 seconds. The + - buttons go up and down through the list of "c" codes. The center vent button switches the left display between the "c" code and its actual value. Press the Auto button to exit. I have yet to verify all these, this info was copied from wonderful people on PPBB! Here is a list of what can be seen: 0c - ERL 1c - Oil Temp? 2c - Inside temp. Sensor mounted in the aspirator assembly at the side of the dash. 3c - Outside temp. Sensor located inside the air inlet of the A/C unit. 4c - Outside temp. Sensor located in front grill of the radiator. The data is fed to the Climatronic from the instrument cluster. When not moving, the instrument cluster OBC temp display retains it's last setting until moving. This is to prevent heat emanating from the radiator affecting the temperature sensor. The A/C unit uses the lower of the two outside air temp values in determining fresh-air temp. 5c - Outside temp. (matches with OBC outside temp display) 6c - Coolant temp. 7c - Footwell discharge temp. 8c - Sun sensor (dash top) 9c - Sun sensor. 10c - Passenger compartment fan speed. 11c - Passenger compartment fan voltage. 12c - Temperature mix Flap command 1=COLD, 100=HOT 13c - Temperature mix Flap position 14c - Central Flap command 15c - Central Flap position 16c - Footwell/Defrost Flap command 17c - Footwell/Defrost Flap position 18c - Recirculation Valve command 1=OFF, 100=RECIRC 19c - Recirculation Valve position (feedback) 20c - Vehicle speed in kph, updating only once per second. (real speed, not speed+safety margin as in the speedometer) 21c - Engine RPM in hundreds. This too only updates once per second. 22c - ? 23c - ? 24c - Sun sensor, exterior lights switch & panel lights control (term. 58 & 58d voltage) - used for A/C panel display illum. 25c - ? 26c - ? 27c - ? 28c - Fan speed? 29c - ? 30c - Engine run time in seconds (255 max.)(=0xff) 31c - Timing counter 32c - Displays test 33c - Software version? Mine states 3.4 34c - ? 35c - Outside temp. from inlet sensor (filtered?) 36c - temp? From this website - http://www.cb-racing.com/boxster_AC.html Regards, Will
  21. alright...I tested it out. I went for a drive today. The light went out on the dash and when I got up to speed the spoiler popped out. At below 55 it retracted. All normal EXCEPT? When I went for another drive and the light stayed on and the spoiler popped up but did not retract. Does anyone think that this is from a faulty relay, wire or plug? I looked at the wiring diagram last night and noticed that there was something about "Tailgate open" which is numbered N86. Anyone know what this is for? OR if could this be part of the issue I'm having?
  22. Hey Maurice, I checked out that relay this evening. I pulled several out actually because they are difficult to get out....but anyway. The leads look immaculate - no corrosion. I also put an Ohm meter on that particular relay. since there was a schematic on relay I checked for opens and shorts where appropriate. It appears fine. I reseated the relay, but have yet to test...It's late :rolleyes: BTW - there is a bundle of wires that go into a 2-piece plug. The top piece has 2 wires - I found out this goes to the trunk light. The second piece of the plug was the piece that was previously disconnected and appears to be for the spoiler. However, there is a third 2-pair cables that goes to a connector that has plus sign (+) type of shapes on the end of the connector - as in looking at the plug's end. I wish my camera worked. I'm not sure what this is supposed to be plugged into. It is just lying there and I can't find anything needing the male end of a connector. Anyway, that's where I am at. I'll test drive tomorrow and check the light and the auto-retract of the spoiler. Thanks, Will BTW - It is connector B02A24 - See Below
