  1. thanks everyone really appreciate the advice guys. I need to get my key programmed by a professional. Hopefully then the vehicle will start
  2. Thanks for your advice pal, really appreciate it. I know the piwis/pst2 testers are expensive $3000. I need a professional who can come and do on road service and bring the tester to my house so he can tell me all the faults and what necessary steps I can take to running the vehicle. Towing the vehicle and dealer fee's is not an option its way to expensive. Before taking on this project, the vehicle was dismantled and had to be put back together...That being said never had an opportunity to start the vehicle and didnt turn over. Obviously it turned over before it was hit the accident, but af
  3. Hey Kare, I can open the doors with the key. I can also put that key into the ignition and all the lights turn on..the ac works, the radio works, windows go up and down, all the pannel lights show. I can also open the trunk and the trunk lid. I can turn the key and I can hear the carborator flaps clicking but no start wont ignite. I can unlock and lock the doors with the switch once the key is placed in the ignition. Your right Kare I do not have a remote, and Im not sure if the key transponder is programmed with my immobilizer or see if the key is programmed. I need a PST2 or PIWIS tester..
  4. guys, ive been reading some of your suggestions and im having the same problem. I purchased a porsche 911 996 year 2000 I dont have the remote control only was given the key. Im having problems starting the vehicle, I have power to the starter and I hear the click of the carborator opening and clicking but wont fire up to start the engine. At first I thought there was no spark going to the coils, but I do have spark. Ive checked the grounds they seem to be okay, as well as the clutch, as I have tried to bypass it. Ive tried turning with the key no luck, I manually tried to start the solenoid
  5. I do have a alarm module underneath the driver seat its a m535, They key that I was given with the car is the one I shown in the picture, they call it a wallet key and I dont think there is a small transponder cylinderical shape on it. your right there shouldnt be any cables underneath the passenger seat besides the ones for the seat, but for some reason the person who rebuilt it never hooked those plugs back to there original location. This why I was confused as those plugs seemed like they had to fit some kind of module, I later discovered that those plugs hook up to a connector to distrib
  6. Hey everyone...I have been given the worst advice from some people, and had no luck on starting my car. This my first 996, it is a salvaged title and was in an accident from the passenger side. The passenger side has all been rebuilt. I never actually worked on one of these before, as I own a older 78 911 sc. First I checked all the grounds they seem to be all fine, tried bypassing the clutch that didnt work, checked all the fuses there all good, replaced the battery that didnt work, I was given advice and noticed there was a bunch of plugs hanging lose underneath the passenger seat didnt k
  7. "You can replace the DME without replacing the immoblizer" Dharn im sure you can purchase a DME used one from another car, however that DME wont work with the immobilizer. Im not sure this is what someone told me. If I buy a DME from the dealer off course I wouldnt have to replace the immobilizer. The DME from the dealer is $2500. And I dont want to go that route as it is to expensive for me that way. Im trying to find a car salvaged or someone parting one out. And see if I can purchase the DME and Immobilizer, and key remote so all three units function as one complete unit. Rather than us
  8. Thank You Mike...yes your right Im not very informed with the terminology. Im actually learning as I go along. When I called the dealer they told me that the DME is suppose to be on driver side, But when I removed the seat the immobilizer was there instead part number 996 618 260 07. When I removed the passenger seat all the wire's were lose and there was no brain, the DME wasnt there. Which even the dealership found strange as its suppose to be the immobilizer on the passenger side and DME on the driver side, unfortunately for me was opposite. Maybe for certain vehicles it has dme and immobil
  9. LOL, yes this is a serious post. No the vehicle was a salvage title, and I took it on as a project vehicle. Im more knowledgeable with the older porsches 75-80's. This is my first porsche 996 carrera, it wasnt running when I purchased the vehicle it was more of an ez fix than anything else. Dharn, ive done business with Oklahoma Foriegners the guy's name is Gary, hes a pretty good guy. LA Dismantlers lol on the other hand they've been pretty good with me. Im actually doing business with these guys as of the moment as I had to purchase several parts from them to rebuild this porsche im workin
  10. After weeks trying to figure out why the engine wont start I finally discover why. Looked under the passenger seat...NO DME (ECU) UNIT FOR THE CAR............ :( Ill see if I can buy one of ebay. Thanks for all your help...Ill keep you guys posted on my progress. Gavin
  11. Thanks guys, Ill try cleaning the ground strap Dharn im hoping maybe that could be it..Ill try that today and keep you posted. Also Ill check the clutch pedal Statman. Thanks Dharn and Statman...Ill let you guys know
  12. The engine is not turning over with the starter when key is placed in the ignition. I can hear the click of the carborator when I place the key in the ignition and try to turn it over, all the instrumental lights, ac, headlights all turn on...but the engine does not want to ignite. When I manually try to start the engine with the solenoid the vehicle tries to start but I dont get no roar. The car has been sittin for a long time, im going to replace and add new gas and try that. The grounds are all fine. I dont have an alarm remote could this be an issue...Do you think I might have to demobili
