318touring posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)So I was dismantling the plastic bits and pieces of the trunk tonight, and I came across 2-3 bundles of cables that have nothing attached to them. I thought I'll post the pictures here, and see whether the experts here can tell me what they're for. Hopefully something cool like iPod connectivity etc.. The car is a 2003 996 C4 Cab, RHD, UK spec.
318touring replied to E Kap's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Don't do that. Don't drop the hood from anywhere. Just guide it until the latch catches, then use the palm of you hand push the area near the edge of the hood. About 4-5 inches down from the emblem. You won't dent your hood this way and involves no dropping.

Good to hear that. From the service book, it seems that the battery was replaced at 2007, then replaced again just before I took delivery. So I'm hopefully fine, although I'm actually using my ghetto blaster rather than the car's stereo system.
Thanks. I'd done this to my trusty, daily driver sub-$1000 Mazda. I didn't expect I have to do this on my P-car :rolleyes:
If this is the case, will it cause the battery to go flat if the lights have been on for a couple of hours almost every day. I'm currently working on the leather seats, bringing them back to a better condition but I will obviously need to keep the doors open for better access, better lighting etc.
Let me explain more clearly: in my BMW, if you keep your doors open, the interior lights on the doors will eventually switch themselves off. My newly acquired 996 doesn't do that. I kept the doors opened for cleaning and those oval red/white light on each door doesn't turn itself off at all. I'm wondering whether this is a feature or a bug?
Thx mate, so triple black, paint, interior and soft-top are in black? I'm new to all of these....
Also know as egas or drive by wire. This means the accerator position is sent to the DME via a sensor and electrical wires rather than the old style accelerator cable. Thx! That's what I thought. Although I'm buying the car from a Porsche/Audi dealer, I'm dealing with a sales from Audi who we've known from his days at BMW. He's basically clueless. Is there a website that provides parts diagram for Porsches like this one for BMW, realoem Apparently my car has the following, litronics headlamp, fog-headlamps, headlamp washer. Now the questions are: - is the headlamp washer the oval chrome covered bit that is part of the headlight? - is litronics xenon or bi-xenon - what does fog headlamp mean? The headlight has a fog light? In my 5 series all of these 3 (headlight, foglight and washers) are separate units!! jimmy3530: I also went here, suncoast, just got the reply back. All of the options are in German, however you can easily use the option numbers to get the English version.
here we are, although I need to find out what e-accelerator means 996 spec sheet.pdf
Haha, thanks a lot mate! Much appreciated, I'll start plugging in the codes to find out what it has. I'll do the full intro and full pictures etc. after the weekend Once again thank you.
Another new owner of a 996 C4 Cab, I even haven't got the car yet, will pick it up this weekend. I'll post more pictures and background info once I've collected the car. While anxiously waiting for the weekend, I'm wondering whether anyone knows how to get the spec sheet of the car? Or if anyone can run my VIN to get the factory spec sheet, it's WP0ZZZ99Z3S644101. It was imported from the UK to Japan then ends up here in New Zealand. Understandably the NZ database doesn't have any information about the car. Here's a teaser picture.
