The left door key switch on my 00’ 996 c4 will not lock or unlock. I took the handle and bracket out of the door frame. I was told what usually breaks is the cylinder but nothing appears to be broken. I don’t want to buy a new key so simply replacing the bracket isn’t an option. Is there a straight forward solution or do I need a specialist?? Any my feedback would be much appreciated thanks!
gary_cs replied to gary_cs's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Adaptation, Lower Load Range, Bank 1 – Above Limit, or Below Limit This means that the fuel mixture is too rich and the DME software can not correct for it. This is not an O2 sensor problem. Possible causes are: – Incorrect signal from MAF sensor – Fuel pressure too high – Fuel injector fouled Hi Loren, I was able to take back the Oxygen Sensor and ordered the MAF sensor. When it came in it looked like the one I had, but it wasn't. I took it back and also brought the one from my car. When they looked it up the only one they were able to match it with was for a 2000 996 Carrera all wheel drive. As far as I know this is a 2 wheel drive?
gary_cs replied to gary_cs's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Thank you Loren. Could I clean the MAF sensor with the (Mass Air Flow Sensor Cleaner)?
gary_cs posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I have a 2000 996 Carrera Cab my service light keeps coming on. My OBD code I'm getting is P1126 (02S Sensing Range 1 CYL 4-6). I bought a new Oxygen Sensor is CYL 4-6 the passengers side? is there anything I need to do before I start replacing this sensor? Thank You for any help.
Hi Loren Thank you for your response about the vacuum tool the video was a great help, all the people on this forum have been so nice and helpful. I can’t even begin to say how grateful I am, thank you RennTech.org
What is a vacuum tool to refill the coolant? And how to you use it, just asking so if I ever need to change my coolant again. and were is a good place to get one.
Thank you for all your advice, I’ll try to answer everyone. No I did not use a vacuum tool to refill the coolant and yes it is an OEM water pump. The outside air temperature in the morning was about 62 degrees. Traffic was light on my way home, and the outside air temperature was about 85 degrees in stop and go traffic. As for any signs of oil in coolant no, I did take the advice from Hilux2400, I raised the back of my car and let it sit about 45-60 minutes. I also opened the bleeder valve and removed the coolant cap to see if any of the air would come up. It seemed to work, I was able to add another gallon of antifreeze and a gallon of water. I should have known something was wrong when it only took 4 gallons, 50% Porsche antifreeze and 50% water. Thank for all your help, no more over heating problems. Thank You Gary_cs
I have a 2000 Porsche 996 3.4 liter, (Over heating problem) I replaced the water pump it needed to be replaced, after installing the new one I test drove the car a few miles to bring the tempt up to 180 degrees everything seemed fine, I used the car the next day drove about 30 miles no problems until I was coming Home made it about 25 miles, before the car started to overheat about 230 degrees, Pulled over opened the Eng. Hood everything was wet from the Coolant Reservoir on down Added water made it home I thought maybe it could be the thermostat, Replaced it and new housing and gasket drained the coolant also Radiators both fans are working but still overheating. Any help will be greatly appreciated
