  1. Hello, Okay, I took the advice of Mike Focke and purchased an Actron OBDII Pocket Scan for $65.00 at Auto Zone in San Diego. I hooked it up to the DME turned the key to "on" and this is what I got...

Stop and go traffic, top speed 53 mph, slowest speed 5mph. After returning home I checked the DME again
  2. Hi Loren, Thanks for that... is there a way I can read the DTC and fix them myself or should I go to my Porsche guy... What tool would you recommend for this? I would like to try and do this myself only because I want to learn, and its fun! Thanks Rod
  3. Hello, I am new to the forum. I have a 2000 Boxter S, 40,000 miles, I live in Alpine CA 91901. I had a CEL come on and so I disconnected the battery cable to remove the alert. Now, I can't pass a California emmisions test. The CEL came on the day after I had a pre-purchase inspection and everything came out Excellent !. The following night I removed the gas cap, just to look at it and then put it back on. The next day the CEL came on. My smog guy told me I had to reset the computer monitor and that required a specific driving cycle. I have the drive cycle instructions, which is recom
  4. Hello, I tighten it only 2 clicks. But I did disconnect the neg battery cable for 5 min as instructed and that did the job. Thank you very much. Its no fun zippin around with a CEL on !
  5. If you have the 4 digit radio code you can remove the negative battery connection for 5 minutes then re-connect the battery. If the CEL light is not flashing you're not hurting anything. I'm not sure where Alpine Calif. is located but you may find a Renntech Board Member located nearby to check with their Durametric tool that may be able to give you a more complete diagnosis.

Alpine is in the back hills or San Diego County
  6. Hello, I am new to Remmtech and a new Porsche owner. I have a 2000 Boxter S which I purchased from a friend. I am the third owner. I had the local Porshe shop do a prepurchase inspection and everything was up to speed. Both owners prior to me kept all service records and the car is in "like new" condition. While I was in the garage checking out the car I opened the fuel cap, just to check it out. The next day when I started the car the "check engine light" came on. I drove it today and the light remained on. Like I said before there are no issues with the car. I am thinking because I o
