Bwheeldo replied to vwrado's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Hi there, I am at 122,000 KM's, daily drive and runs like a dream. Though the "soft feel" plastic interior, read can be scratched even if looked at sideways pains me. C2 1998.
Bwheeldo posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Thought I would say hello, as a recent 1st time owner of a 996 I have already benefitted from this outstanding site (its a steep learning curve). We have a relatively small market in Australia (Sydney) so I did spend many months searching, and searching. Here's a few stats and photo's of what the kids refer too as "the cool car". 1998 C2 Tip Fairly standard except for the skirts. 118,000 KM's I will relace the rims with 18" when the tyres are due, given they have a similar profile to my LX470! Cheers, Brett.
Bwheeldo replied to Bwheeldo's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Thanks :thankyou: gents that is making sense, I got hold of a parts catalogue, sorry make that a katalog and the alarm horn graphic has the male side of the spade connector, I'll have a look around for the siren connections etc on the other side of the car. Once thats sorted then work my way through the 2X blink faults, assuming they still exist when the "bits" are back. Given I do something completely different occupation wise this car thing is a whole world of fun :). Right I am off to do an ICV and throttle body clean -
Bwheeldo posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Hello to all, I recently acquired my 1st Porsche, 996 C2,1998. After a fairly extensive search, its a small market down here in Australia I found "the one". I'll post some pic's up in another thread when I have some of the typically Aust backgrounds, you know, Opera House, beaches etc. Right, so given I work in Information Technology my mechanical questions may reflect that, apologies up front. My car has no alarm siren, I believe it had an after market tracker which p'bly had its own siren. So in investigating I found a plug with two space connectors, drivers side next to the battery. With a bit of proding from the multimeter I got these results: No key in, alarm disabled 3.2V No ket in, alarm enabled 3.2V Key in ignition, turned to accessories - 0.0V Alarm triggered 9V (+-2V) (lights flashing madly) Am I looking at the OEM siren connector? Are those voltages there too "check" for a sirens exsitance? The in cabin LED 2X blinks ever 2 secs when the alarm is enabled. Thanks in advance - Brett.
