  1. Well the battery wasn't the issue nor the LAPower bluetooth. I think my next step might be trying to reseat the connectors.
  2. It is less than a year and a Napa premium battery. I might just try swapping a new better name brand battery.
  3. I have an 08 Carrera 4S that I went to the dealer for a new key. The dealer could not program the key because none of the control modules were connecting to the PIWIS tool nore are they visible to the Durametric Pro version. We are able to see the DME but no other modules. They sent me on my way and said come back when there is a failure so they have something to start with. They also said my LAPower bluetooth adapter was the cause. I have was able to see the modules using my Durametric 4 months ago and the only change that Inhave done since was try a bluetooth ODB2 reader. I am not sure where to start on troubleshooting and I'm not a fan of wait and see as that usually involves getting stranded. The car functions as it should just no connections to the various modules. Any thoughts? Anyone have a similar experience?
  4. I just did this and it was one of the most painful jobs I have done. It is worse than replacing the rear struts! You need to look under the engine cover to see if the clamps have been changed from the factory spring clamps. If not you have to go under the car to release the spring clamps and that involves removing the rear aluminum trans shield. Some have been successful without going underneath but I don't see how.
  5. I'm looking to upgrade the light in the header. The electrical connections are different from my 99 and it looks like I should be able to pull the wire connector and put the later connector on the wireharness but I'm not sure the connector part number. I'm looking for the connector that attaches to the 3 wires of the wire harness.
  6. I want to upgrade my 99 boxster interior light to the 2002 and later interior light but I can't find the part number for the much smaller electrical connection on the new light. By chance does anyone know the partnumber?
  7. Let the car sit in the sun so the wheel is hot. The torx screws have locktight and the heat will aid in removal of the Torx screw.
  8. adding additional instruction Turn the key to the second position and verify that all the warning lights are functioning. The "!" will stay on if one of the lights are burnt out. Additionally, the "!" will light in certain charging situations where the alt isn't producing enough voltage even though the gauge shows it is.
  9. on the ! light verify that all your warning lights are working properly.
  10. I recently purchased a used/new deactivation bar for my 986 and I need to purchase the extended seat bolts for the passenger seat. I need to find out what the partnumber is for these bolts. Thanks
  11. Great thanks for all the info. If the local Fremont Dealer won't do it I'll see if I can meet up with someone.
  12. I'm looking at installing the Child Seat airbag deactivation bar in my 99 Boxster. Do I really have to take this to the dealer for programming or can I disconnect the battery put in the deactivation bar and reconnect the battery?
  13. I'll buy the emissions pump.... didn't realize this new of a car would have one of those. I thought the new catalytic converters were so efficient air pumps were a thing of the past. Thanks
  14. I just recently aquired a 99 Boxster from a friend and I'm having an interesting problem with the engine compartment fan. I was told the car always did this but when it was new I didn't remember it doing this. Issue: Starting from cold the engine compartment fan comes on at high and stays on for ~4-5 minutes. The fan also seems to kick on and off randomly throughout stop and start driving. The weather is not hot and I'm not driving aggressively. No engine faults or warning lights and the engine temp never goes much above 180. If memory serves me correct the fan only came on when very hot and not at start-up. Thoughts? I was thinking a bad temp sensor but maybe it is something else.
