  1. Catless w/crosspipe. If you have neighbors, they won’t be amused when you cold start in the morning. That will be LOUD.
  2. Thanks for your replies guys! Factory head unit, factory CD changer, aftermarket amp and speakers. I had a car stereo technician narrow this problem down to the accelerator pedal yesterday. Amplifier was unhooked from power supply and head unit was switched off and the problem still occurred. Could faulty electronics in the pedal itself send a high pitch noise through speakers? Is there a list (photos?) of ground locations for this car (996 TT) that I could run down? Would it be helpful to attach a short video of the noise to this forum string? Thanks again!!
  3. Re: 2001 996TT. I'm getting an annoying high pitched noise through the stereo speakers that oddly enough seems to be originating from the accelerator pedal. With engine OFF (key turned to the accessory setting) there is no noise until I push on the accelerator. Sound stops when accelerator pedal is released. With engine RUNNING, the high pitched noise is a constant companion. It's a little less prominent when the stereo is on but nonetheless present (music muffling the constant sound). I'm wondering if anyone else has had this symptom and what they did to fix problem. Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
  4. I'd like to bring the RennKit to your attention (http://rennkit.com). It appears to me to be the way Porsche should have built this system in the first place. The price is a little steep but considering what some folks are paying for the Porsche replacement. . . If your current hydraulic system still works, selling it and getting one of these seems pretty smart (and not having to wonder when the hydraulics are going to fail: priceless). Here's a YouTube clip of it in action:
  5. Hi JFP, Thanks for the annotated photo. I have the same beeping when locking the car and I'm encouraged I might finally get it sorted out. I may be a little slow but could you please spell out what exactly I need to do. My first guess from your picture is I need to bridge the two elements you marked (in the picture) to provide ground?? Or. . . ground wires from both of the elements you marked to another place in the general vicinity?? Thanks in advance for your help.
  6. Thanks Loren. I clearly didn't read the Durametric matrix closely enough (http://www.durametric.com/modelfeaturematrixv6.aspx). Durametric (even the Professional version) does only VERY little coding on the 996. Returning Professional version and getting the Enthusiast version (and saving around $400).
  7. Can a Durametric (Professional cable) and v. 6 of the software change the settings for the "Child Seat Airbag Deactivation Bar"? If so, can anyone out there provide a step-by-step procedure for changing this setting? Thanks very much.
