  1. I guess no other suggestions except just replace the O2 sensor. Ok I'll replace it again and see what happens. Thanks.
  2. well for CEL P1276 and P0153 means "Aging of Oxygen Sensor Ahead of Catalytic Converter (Cylinders 4 - 6) - Below Lower Limit". isn't "Bosch 15182 Oxygen Sensor - OE Type Before Catalyst" correct?
  3. i actually got them from amazon. they were bosch part #15182.
  4. hey guys, the cel on my MY2000 S just came on past weekend. i took it to a local auto zone and had it read and i got cel P1276 and P0153. now my question is not which O2 sensor this is or how to replace it. my question is, is this normal? the reason i ask is i had the same cel back in december 2007 and i had the o2 sensor replaced. in march 2010, i got cel P0133 and P0153 and had the 2 O2 sensors replaced as well. basically i get cel P0153 repeatedly and changing the same O2 sensor. should there be something wrong or was it just a bad o2 sensor i got? please advise. thank you.
  5. sorry it took me a while to get back. i tried the paper clip thing by removing the connector/wires and still no brake light on dash. what can i check next?
  6. ok, i guess no one has any ideas or no one else is having this problem except. me. :( i guess i have to take it to the shop to have it resolved.
  7. ok guys, my hand break light on my dash went out about 8 months ago. so i searched the forum and tried pulling the hand break rigorously few time and that fixed the problem. but just last week same thing happened again and this time pulling the hand break repeatedly did not fix the problem. so i thought for sure the microswitch has gone bad. so i switched out the microswitch. but that did not fix the problem. my break light on the dash still not on hence the convertible top not operating. i have not yet putting the center console back just in case this is something else i need to check.
  8. ok guys, i was experiecing the same problem about 8 months ago and i used pulling the hand break few time and that fixed the problem. but just last week same thing happened again and this time pulling the hand break did not fix the problem. so i thought for sure the microswitch has gone bad. so i followed the instruction of removing the center console and switched out the microswitch. but that did not fix the problem. my break light on the dash still not on. i have not yet putting the center console back just in case this is something else i need to check. so please help. what is the proble
  9. ok, now that i have both O2 sensors replaced. will the cel reset (turn off) itself? i have heard that after 3 complete cycle of engine start up and cool down, the cel should reset itself. is this correct? or do i need to take it to the shop have them reset it for me?
  10. ok i just received my O2 sensors and got my MY00 boxster s up and ready to replace. before i proceed, i just want a confirmation. can one of the porsche gurus please take a look at the pic (borrow it from mikefocke's page) and confirm the correct parts. thank you all.
  11. what is the life span of an O2 sensor? i have replaced the one one the driver side 2 or 3 years ago, not sure. but the other 3 has never been replaced. is it normal the passenger side O2 goes bad after 10 years and 106,000 miles?
  12. MY2000 S with around 106,000 miles. no i don't have an oiled air filter either. i heard about the problem the oil from the filter can cause. my friend's 996 had that problem. is there some other problem may cause the CL P0133 and P0153? how should i clean the O2 sensor?
  13. ok loren. will do. i will clean them first and have them check it again. but are they the same O2 sensor and is my bosch part number correct (bosch part #15182)?
