Exactly. I'm planning to give your instructions to the OPC and get them to exactly follow these step-by-step. They'll have the latest PIWIS. This is the problem here that there isn't enough modern 911s for the indy to invest $5-$10k on the 'latest' tools all the time.
Thanks Richard, I was hoping you'd read this. I should have updated my profile, I actually now have a 2010 997.2 C2, profile fixed now BTW. I provided the link to this post to them, I don't know whether they followed your instruction to the letter. Since I'm bringing the car to OPC, and there isn't a lot of 911s in Wellington (New Zealand) so this might be the first one they have to do. So I'm hoping to be able to get them to read through a set of instructions rather than doing trial and error. The indy said that using Durametric, the DME didn't show an option for cruise control. Using their 'older' Piwis, it showed cruise control but didn't accept the setting provided.
Thread revival! So I've just gotten my local indy doing this and while they can code the instrument cluster and gateway modules (symbol shows up at ignition at pos. 2), they can't code DME and steering column control unit. Any idea why? I'm booking the car for the dealer to take a look at as the indy indicated that it might be their Durametric and old Piwis (to 996 only) might be the cause.
X-posting from other forums as this seems to be a rare issue? Car is 2010, C2, PDK Has anyone had this issue? I have read a post or two where people were just leaving things be. Would appreciate getting any feedback on what could be the cause. I have checked the power steering fluid, and it was full. The video is of the rack itself. Thanks!
318touring replied to HomePro's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)If yours is 2003 then you have the MB trans. Which will require removal of both for the work you intend on doing. Might as well do some trans maintenance while you're at it.
Do it, got mine done a couple of years ago.
@Jay reading through the thread in the UK forum, your leaky pipes will be on the driver side and the plug on the passenger side? I will have to get an extended mirror and better access to the underside of the car. Have booked with a Merc transmission specialist on 6 Jan, as OPC and indy can't help.
Thanks, any idea where this connector might be on 996? The oil pan looks rather different to what's shown here.
I've got a leak which has been ongoing for a couple of years. Since I don't have a lift I have only been unable to stick my head under the unit trying to find this elusive plug. Part diagram doesn't really help. So the question is, can anyone tell me where exactly this plug is? Preferably with a picture :-)
318touring replied to SabaDabaDoo's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)My setup, from the fuse box as my car does have a phone and different connector - also mine is not a US car
318touring replied to Kim's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)My experience might be useful? Go to the last post for resolution, and 1st post for the clunking noise I had. http://rennlist.com/forums/996-forum/946642-id-these-noises.html
Success!! Now you reverse in confidence all weekend long. I didn't realise that the whole reversing system was shot until I almost crash onto a wall when reversing. I have reversing sensors and have always been depending on it to tell me how much space I've got left.
This is the 'hack' in MFS that you'll need to do: Reverse light switch on tiptronic trans? - Rennlist Discussion Forums At least you had removed the center console, the second time would be easier and faster (usually).
@Larry 2002/911/996 don't worry about it. This is apparently a common issue but not common enough for Bentley to mention it. I was hoping it would be a connector somewhere in the gearbox housing but no, I had to deal with lots of screws including one that was holding the coin holder (do you know that the car has a coin holder inside the center console?)
