UNC Nick replied to dsnow's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Bumperplugs.com Call Eric. He's GREAT.
UNC Nick replied to UNC Nick's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Thanks Tool Pants! That helps a lot. Guess I just need to order the part from BMW. Is that the same part number referenced above?
Hello all. I'm working on the OBC hack to use the stalk. I've already got the 4-stalk assembly installed, but was missing parts for the wiring harness so it could not be completed at that time. So, I ordered the connector that I needed to finish building the wiring harness and it came in the mail yesterday. I'm having a few things done to the car on Wednesday of this week so I wanted to have the harness built so that they could plug in the connector at that time. I ordered part # 999-650-056-40 from a dealer, but unbeknownst to me, I was shipped the "replacement part" for the part # that I ordered- replacement part # 999-650-513-40. I confirmed with the local dealer that this is the correct replacement part. Problem is, I can't figure out how in the world this part will work. The needed part is an electrical connector. The part that they shipped looks to be half of a connector. Does anyone have any idea of what I need to do or what an alternative is? Evidently, the original part is not available at all anymore. I really want the OBC installed and working with the stalk. Thanks in advance! Nick
UNC Nick replied to UNC Nick's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Could this be from K40 Radar? Previous owner (family member) did have it installed... Just thought of it now.
My bumper was re-sprayed a few months back and yesterday, while adjusting the hood latch, I found this connector unplugged and laying underneeth the hood latch. Car is a 2000 C2 Cab. Can anyone help me identify it and let me know what it does and where to plug it in? Thanks in advance!
Anone with more info for the radio volume mod?
UNC Nick replied to UNC Nick's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Thanks PTEC. I'll check it. When the problem happens, the roof will go all the way up an the hook will extend, but then it just freezes and the cab light blinks. Turning the car off and then on will occasionally fix it, but more often than not it takes a reseating of the B5 fuse. Then hitting the button will function just like normal and the cycle will complete. That sound like what you are referring to?
UNC Nick replied to AG996LV's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)AG- did you buy the skirts recently or have you had them for a while? I'm getting ready to add them on my cab and am looking to see if there are any deals out there. Thanks! Nick
UNC Nick replied to UNC Nick's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Loren- DO you have a pic of the "old" vs. "new" mechanisim? The car is a 2000 and was produced in late '99, after the TSB was issued. Would that mean that it has the new latch?
Looking for some help. My 2000 C2 Cab has an issue with the "final" latching of the top when closing. I did some searching here and on Rennlist and found that a few people had also experienced this problem and many rectified it by either replacing or reseating the fuse (B5 location on the 2000 C2 is just for the latching, another fuse handles the rest of the motion). Well, I tired replacing the B5 fuse- though not blown- and everything working fine. A few days later, though, same problem. This time, reseat the fuse and all's well again. It's happened a few more times now and is getting pretty aggravating. I did have the top replaced a few weeks ago and have only noticed this since, although the top was RARELY used before that due to a separated back window and a previous owner that used it enough times to count on one hand (a family member so I know the real history). Any ideas on what to do? I've comtemplated taking apart and reassembling the motor and housing for the latch to see if that helps anything out. The fuse isn't blown, and I doubt that the fuse itself is faulty since I've tried a few of them with the same results. I'm baffled with this one. Can anyone help? Thanks! Nick
I've been searching for weeks on this one and can't seem to find an answer. Can anyone help? I'm looking to install aftermarket seat heaters into my 2000 C2 cab and would love to find a solution that would allow me to utilize the stock seat heater switches. Logic tells me that this may be difficult without using the stock parts, but I've seen a few posts here and on other boards that leave me with a glimmer of hope. I haven't bought the seat heaters yet, but will more than likely go with either a Check Corp. solution or the RAME kit that some have utliized for thier GT3 seats. Either kit contains a harness that connects to a switch that has an OFF, Low, and High setting (Off in middle, low when switched to the bottom, high when depressed on the top). Anybody have any futher info or suggestions on making this connection a reality? Thanks in advance! Nick
UNC Nick replied to UNC Nick's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Thanks AR. I want to hide the 2nd adapter behind the upper console. I'm going to flush mount the SIRI receiver and hopefully put a door on the front of it. I'd like to maintain the same 12v adapter for the receiver, though.
UNC Nick replied to UNC Nick's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Thanks AR. Sorry, I'm a little electrically challenged... :( I'm trying to add an additional 12v "socket" so that I can utilize a standard 12v auto adapter for a Sirius receiver. So, if I'm reading and interpreting your response correctly, all I need to do is to tap any of the existing switched fuses or plug into one of the unused switch terminals?
Hello all. I'm installing a 12v adapter to run a secondary 12v source off of and am confused as to which fuse in the fusebox to tap. I'm guessing that any fuse that's on/off with the key and matches the original cig. lighter socket will work. That correct? Is that a 7.5 amp fuse? 15? Thanks in advance! Nick
Hey all! Just looking for some opinions/experiences from any of you who have installed aftermarket seat heaters yourself. I've seen the DIY's and posts on the topic, but to a novice like myself, I can't tell from the how hard of a job this really is. A local shop has quoted me roughly $950 for the product and install on both front seats. Judging by internet pricing, this seems high to me and has me thinking more and more about installing them myself. However, if it is a moderately or more difficult job, I'll have to stay with the pro's. So, can anyone shed any light on it for me? Thanks in advance! Nick
