  1. Hey I am considering buying this 2001 911 C4 for a pretty good price ($15,700) it has 104k runs and drives good Anyways it has a CEL light on and here are the codes I pulled up. -P0134 -P0154 -P0300 -P0306 -P0304 -P0305 -P1115 The dealership got the car as a trade in a few months ago, but had to wait for the title for a while so it just sat around. They said when they got it they had to replace the starter and the only CEL light on was for the 02 sensor, and now it has all these. I own a mechanics shop, but I like to stay away from European cars as they are time consuming, b
  2. As Mark has said, it won't work in his case because he's got an automatic, but it might work to eliminate the starter as the culprit in a manual. IIRC, the "reverse" idea is just because of the gearing...don't need to get it up to any fast roll to pop the clutch, although first would give a similar (but sometimes too sudden) result. Regards, Maurice. Thanks for explaining Maurice! I just didn't know his car was an automatic, I assumed it was a manual, so thats why I suggested it
  3. Thanks, I think this is what I will do, I am going to try using the cleaning sovlent to clean the current window, if no luck them I will buy a new roll of the plastic and make my own window :)
  4. That is why I can't really go over $150, I like to have at least $500 in a rainy day account for just the car. Plus I am not to worried about it looking perfect, 75% on the time I have the top down, and in 3-4 months the hardtop will go on
  5. Check your starter, had the same problem as you on my 01 911. It cranked and cranked, so I replaced the battery, the important relays, checked all fuses, and key. Took it to the shop, needed a new starter. Try push starting it in reverse, see if it will fire up. I was able to do it with me girlfriend, and by doing that I knew it wasn't a fuel problem or anything
  6. Hey thanks for the reply, but unfortunately both those are out of my budget for the top, I just spent $450 on a new starter w/install and $300 on a hardtop so I am not worried about my softop looking perfect, just better than a droppy discolored clear window. Has anyone else had this problem?
  7. Trying to fix up the rear window, on a very small budget, so replacing top is out of question. I was thinking about stitching the window back into place with black or dark blue thread, and cleaning it with some kind of plastic window cleaner (like Novus Polish, recommend by Miata owners http://novuspolish.com/) but would like to buy something that is available at Autozone or Pepboys Has anybody ever done this? I attached a picture of my top
  8. Hey thanks for the help, I am going to follow your instructions and give it a try in a few minutes!
  9. Hey I recently unplugged and changed the battery and ever since then my radio wont turn on! I check the fuse according to this thread Fuse thread and it was fine. But I read there is another fuse behind the radio, I will go and buy the tools to remove it in a few hours, but does anyone have any pictures of the actual steps to remove? I searched for threads with pictures also but couldn't find any. Thanks!
  10. 111k on mine and it handles great, I can't wait for the snow to come in so I can drop my hardtop on and slice through it!
  11. Hey guys, I had a shop replace the starter and the car starts fine now
  12. Well the only other thing I can think of is my security system, sometimes it acts up and the little red light on the unlock bottom stays red and the car honks every couple of minutes while driving
  13. The only two codes that come up are two o2 sensor codes. Do you think replacing the battery will do any good? Or should I just replace the starter?
  14. 2001 911 C4 Cabrio, 6spd, 111k Hey guys, I bought this car a couple weeks ago and love it! You guys helped me fix alot of my small problems but now I have a pretty big one. Ever since I got the car it would take a few cranks to start except when I would start it after 3+ Hours, then it would fire up on first crank. I replaced the battery, but with a much smaller one of my 08 Rabbit, and the problem was still there. But the car still started up without a problem, and yesturday it finally gave out. I was pulling out of a driveway and the car wouldnt start, just kept cranking and cranking, so I
