  1. Turns out it was a throttle body sensor. Car is running perfectly again :)
  2. Yes. Car's at the shop hopefully they'll be able to diagnose it tomorrow.
  3. HI, I've searched the archives but haven't been able to find the solution. The PSM/ABS and evntually CEL lights come on after driving anywhere from a few yards to a few miles. I've changed the MAF and checked the brake switch. I read somewhere (can't find the posting again) about PSS9's somehow causing the fault. PSS9's have been on the car for 4 years. Any suggestions? Thanks, Stanley
  4. Yes 997 WB wheels fit NB 996's. I have 19" design sports on my NB C2 Cab and they fit perfectly. In fact I'm running 4mm spacers in the rear and 5mm up front just to get them that much more flush. For the fronts you can run up to 15mm spacers but I chose not to. If someone wanted to use these wheels on a WB 996 (C4S) they would need spacers in the rear. What model wheels are you selling? Cheers, Stan
  5. Wow, as I read through the various replies it made me think about all the mods I've done to '02 c2 cab. Turbo front bumper cover Turbo rear bumper cover (perfectly modded to fit...a mod of a mod!) 997 design sport wheels GHL exhaust cans X50 Tips Aluminum pedals Smart Top Passenger airbag deactivation kit EVO CAI (removed, never liked it) Clear side markers; been told they add 15hp (at the wheel) haven't done the dyno so please don't quote me :lol: My favorite mods are: PSS9's with GT3 sways (front and back). This set-up had the most impact and changed the handling (for the better) immensely. Cheers, Stan
  6. Thanks for all the helpful replies. The msrp is way more reasonable than I would have thought. I'll check with suncoast and see what there discounted price is. Cheers, Stan
  7. Hi Loren, Thanks for the quick reply. Model year is '02. Is this a DIY job? Would you happen to have the part # of the seat cushion? My seats are supple leather with heat (if that makes a difference). Cheers, Stan
  8. The seat cushion on the drivers seat of my 996 seems a little flat. I was thinking about replacing it. Has anyone here attempted this? Cheers, Stan
  9. Look, I asked for advice regarding the TYPE of bulb I needed and asked for nothing else. In fact I even went as far as to say that I had read up on the pros and cons of whiter light. Why you or anyone else feels the need to critique my choice is beyond me??????!!!!!!!!!!!! What's with multiple ! or ? or the dreaded ????!!!!!! I guess you thought t would help to make your point???????????!!!!!!!!!!!!
  10. Hi Maurice, Thanks again for your help. I'll try taking off the door panel to check if something has come loose. If I need to replace the door lock assembly are the parts the same for cabs and coupes? You litsed 2 part numbers 8N... and 3B... can you tell me what each part is? Regards, Stan
  11. Stan: I agree with Will as to the first possibility. However, the second possibility is more likely to be a bad microswitch. There are three microswitches inside each door. To isolate the likely culprit, with the door open, trip the door latch (on the rear vertical face of the door) with a tool and observe the effect on the 1/2 inch drop and report back. Regards, Maurice. Hi Maurice, I tried your suggestion with the latch when the door is open. The window opened the requisite 1/2" and stayed that way. I guess it's a micro switch? Do you have the part #? Thanks for your help. Regards, Stan
  12. I think you have one of two issues. First the window memory has gone bad. You can push the down button until the window is all the way down and then hold for 10 seconds and then do the same thing in the up position. Second, the regulator may be bad. You can do a search here and find more info. Will Hi Will, Thanks for the memory tip, I'll give that a try. Cheers, Stan
  13. Hi, The drivers side window on my '02 cab has started acting up. When I open the door the window lowers the appropriate amount but instead of staying at the lowered position until the door is closed it immediately pops back up to the full up position. Any ideas why this is happening? Cheers, Stan
