  1. Thanks so much for coming back to me. I can't follow your suggestion because I (stupidly) keep the security socket for my wheels in the boot - so can't get the wheel off :cursing: I keep it in there because I thought if I kept it in the car someone could steal my wheels after i have spent a fortune having the rims rebuilt/refurbished....
  2. Hi all Tough problem for me I am hoping you can help with. The boot (luggage compartment) latch release cable appears to have broken on my 1993 964 3.6 Turbo and now I have no way I know of to get in to fix it. The cable is still attached at the release leaver end inside the car below the steering wheel but is quite loose - so I have to presume it is broken at the front end somewhere. Can anyone advise how i might get into the boot? Thanks for any help you can give Richard
  3. This turned out to be a faulty R34 relay even though a lot of testing seemed to show it was OK. The full story of the efforts to test the relay, and photos of the bridging test procedure (might help newbies like me coming to this problem for the first time) are at http://forums.rennli...tml#post9418377 My thanks to all those who helped me through this in this forum.

  4. Hi all I am fault testing an intermittent ABS light/alarm warning and a speedo that dies at the same time, on my 1993 964 3.6T. So far I have done the "clock repair", re-soldering all fifteen pins on the back of the clock and the five pins on the speedo for good measure. Problem is still there. Now I am testing the R34 relay by bridging pins 30 and 87. Could not reproduce the fault after 20 miles of driving (would normally happen well within that time). So it looks encouraging. My question is: is it OK to leave the bridge in permanently (when switched off over-night and also when driving
  5. Many thanks for your helpful reply. I can't do much until Saturday but I am going to give it a go then. I'll report back what I find. Cheers Progress report and a possibly significant finding Since this is an intermittent fault, and as the light is currently not coming on (typical!), I decided to follow up troubleshooting leads from many posts on the subject. Hopefully I would find something significant. Here is what I have done so far: Brake Fluid 1) Checked level and it is exactly at MAX with engine running and a few pumps of pedal. 2) Checked and cleaned float under fille
  6. Many thanks for your helpful reply. I can't do much until Saturday but I am going to give it a go then. I'll report back what I find. Cheers
  7. Richard - thanks for your prompt reply. I was afraid of that. If you are a wizard on these things, could you help me troubleshoot my abs light/alarm problem outlined in the 964 forum about 2-3 posts down. Sorry - don't know how to insert link to a post Regards from sunny Spain arjay
  8. Richard - if you are still watching this thread. I have 1993 964 3.6 turbo. I have an Equus (Innova) OBDII that I use on my old 2001 Hyundai Accent. Is there any chance that the OBDII would diagnose anything on my Porsche if I can get the converter lead in your earlier post? I have an intermittent fault with the ABS light/buzzer that is driving me mad (see current post on this forum). Would it help with that? TIA
  9. Many thanks for replying. Sorry I was late getting back to you - not notified of a reply. I live in rural Spain and it is a very long way to any porsche garage who'd have a hammer or equivalent. Is there anything I could do to fault find by trial and error - eg, find the wheel sensors, clean them up and any grounds etc or trace with a multimeter or something?. Or is that just a needle in a haystack job? RJ
  10. Hi all. I have a 1993 964 3.6T. I have an intermittent ABS light/buzzer warning that comes on once or twice in a 30 mile trip and perhaps five times in a 100 mile trip but then not again for a dozen trips. I have read dozens of posts on several forums but still not sure exactly what I might have. Nearly all posts relate to C2 and C4 rather than any turbos I have read about and am contemplating the clock repair suggestion - see this link: 964 clock repair. Before that, can anyone help troubleshoot this set of symptoms - and advise anything less drastic to check before a "clock job". I coul
