I recently changed the seats to 996 gt3 bucket seats. installed the seat belt buckle and everything is okay until it lights up recently,
Airbag light came on at cold start what might've triggered it?
Thanks I will look into it.
Listen guys... at cold start it starts fine and perfect... Then when I drive it for 5-10 miles then I shut it off and within about 10-20 mins being off when you try to start it, it won't start at first or second try, it's always the third time. Now if after the 5-10 miles of drive I shut it off and with 30mins or more, it starts perfectly fine. I'm guessing the engine has already cooled off. So it has something to do with engine being warm and trying to start while warm I hope this makes sense and help. TIA!
What about alternator?
Thanks man. Some say it can't be my CPS because the car starts... if it was the CPS the car wouldn't start at all even on cold start.
Thanks guys for the input. keytohwy thanks man. I'm around Concord area so not to far from Benecia. I honestly do not know how to use durametric and what it is. I hear a lot about it....
CPS cam position sensor?
the clutch swtich wouldn't make sense if my car starts for the first time at cold start correct? It only happens on short trips...
Thanks for the input guys!
Thanks guys very helpful tips. I will go ahead and get my alternator tested.
I don't exactly know what you mean by that... What is clutch swtich? I do have the 6 speed.
Thanks guys for the input. I am now using the trickle charge at 2amps over night....
When I use my 996.1 for short drive to the stores and stop here and there.... once I try to turn it on it won't crank over the first try.... until 2-3 times of retry then it starts. What could be causing this problem? I just changed the battery but I don't drive the car often. Could this be that the battery is draining slowly due to non active? It's a pain in the *** and sometimes embarrassing when people are near by and hears it won't start.
