  1. I recently changed the seats to 996 gt3 bucket seats. installed the seat belt buckle and everything is okay until it lights up recently,
  2. 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!
  3. 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.
  4. 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....
  5. 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...
  6. I don't exactly know what you mean by that... What is clutch swtich? I do have the 6 speed.
  7. 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.
  8. If front hood left open, does the cargo light turn off? If so how long til'? Reason I asked, it's because I charge my battery once a while with the trickle charger and charges it from the front (main battery connections) and I leave the front hood open while it's charging. It gets annoying having to unplug the light from the harness every time.Thanks!
  9. Where can I get the front splitter/spoiler for 996 GT3 MK2? Polyurethane or Fiberglass. Like this pic
  10. Are you sure this is the exact solution for my exact problem? I just want to make sure before I buy a new key fob that there isn't any other disgnose I should do before I continue towards this route. I only have one key as of now. I now have to put the key in and turn it to lock/unlock the door. I will contact Sunset Porsche soon... Few questions... - Will I re-use my key blade? - What other things will I reuse from my old key? - How much will Porsche charge to program the key? Thanks for the info.
  11. My keyless entry stopped working.... Things I've done: - Changed the battery - Re-solder the button connections - LED light works and blinks when pressed What are other things can I do to diagnose this problem before going to a shop or stealership? Thanks in advance.
