  1. Exactly, thats why its a pain in the ar*e fault when you first get it. In-fact , because the regulator will work for a while whilst the engine and alternator are cold it makes diagnosis very hard. But rest assured,when the diode pack fails you dont get the red charge light on the dash. Frank Thank you to all who responded to my question. I just joined Renntech and am already a big fan. You were right. I took it into a local Porsche repair shop and it is the alternator. I am unsure if it was the voltage regulator or what part of the alternator. He charged me $600 which I thought was a great price until I heard from another comment that I may have been able to do it for $36 and one hour of my time. I am not that mechanically inclined so I am OK with the bill as long as baby is working again. It is spring time in Toronto Canada and driving season is amongst us!!!! Thanks again
  2. I started my 2002 911 C4 after a long cold winter and it started first try. I then drove it for 25 minutes to recharge things stopped for 10 minutes then went to start it again and it wouldn't start. It first went click, click, click, click, click when I turned the ibnition. I then tried again and nothing. I waited 4 hours and tried again and it started, I drove it for 10 minutes and the battery gauge was slowly going down and lights on the dash were shutting down. The computer indicated to take it to a garage, PSM problem and ABS problem both indicated by the computer. WHat is wrong with my new baby. I have only had it for 6 months and it was garaged for 4 monrhs.
