No, it isn't that simple, I am just an idiot, the main wire to the starter was hidden behind the brake lines. I didn't take the starter out so I didn't realize there were more than 2 wires going to it. It's fixed now and I am only out with 8 hours of my life.
Does anybody know if the clutch accumulator goes bad often in these cars? My hydraulic oil is not going down as much but my pedal is really tough right when i shut the car off. I know it is supposed to get harder as you pump and empty the accumulator but right away? Thanks and sorry for the hijack...
So I went to my car yesterday morning and I found that my windows were all the way down and the car was unlocked. I found it odd but I blamed myself for not locking it and called it that. Today, I went back to the garage and again, unlocked with windows down. Now I knew something was up. It didn't end there. I started driving the car windows up and normal and all of a sudden my interior light came on and my windows rolled down again by themselves! It is like somebody is pressing the door unlock on my transmitter! I did a search and anything that includes the word window also includes window dropping so no luck. Is this common? Maybe a door lock relay or something? Thanks
Help. My Turbo wont start, there is no power between the battery and the starter, starter solenoid clicks but the starter wontturn. When I connect a battery directly to the post near the engine it fires right away. I am wondering if I blew a fusible linnk somewhere? I need the main powe rwiring diagram for it. 04 911 Turbo Cab US Model 6 Speed Thanks
Thanks for the update guys. Ya I figured the plug thing a bit too late. I was quite surprised to find that the plastic part off the clock spring that returns the signal to the neutral position broke as I was driving. Now my question is, I put it all back together as I wait for my part for the "plugged" :) dealer but my airbag light now remains on? Do I need a Porsche dealer t turn it off or did I mess something up? Thanks again both of you...
Thanks for the Pic Loren, I took it apart actually and what I broke is the return plastic on the clock spring unit. The part that returns the signal back to go. Do any of you know how to take off the upper clip (grey) on the clock spring? I think I will need to replace it. And I already shop and the plugged porsche dealership :) Thanks Guys...
Hey Guys, The other day I was making a left turn and my signal was on and as I did the turn I heard a plastic snap sound come from behind my steering wheel. Since then my signals work but the steering wheel does NOT shut off the signal after the turn. Loren, I was wonding if you could give me a column exploded view from Porsche? I don't think it is my cable reel for the ABS, most probably my combo switch, but I am curious, if I need to replace the whole switch or if it is a ring I broke or something Thanks
As per topic :) Anybody?
Hello, I did my searches and found a bunch of stuff on this topic, I just wanted to know if anybody has the HOW-TO or factory manual telling me how to remove and re-install the rear window on a 996 cab. I have the new part from Porsche, and just need to install it. Thanks
Hello Again, I have done a lot of searching in the past few months since my previous post and it seems I need more help than I thought. I have a 99 996 Cab. It is not as much shooting out smoke but there are all the signs of what I read to be the seperator. I called the dealer to order the parts but unlike the 986, I was shown that there are 2 units in a 996? Does the 996 have 2 units in the oil pan and 1 like the boxster as well, or does the 996 just have them in the oil pan? I am going to replace both either way, not too expensive, but I want to make sure I a replacing the right item. Help? Thanks in Advance!
