  1. I'm looking for an independant shop in Palm Springs area. Any info would be appreciated. thanks,
  2. that's the problem....I didn't remove the odometer and neither should the shop have done it as well...I guess what you're saying is that it WAS disconnected at the shop even though there was no need to remove it. Just for clairification.....if you disconnect the odometer, it is blank for a certain amount of time after you reconnect it? thanks,
  3. Have a 2000 cab and had some paint shop/ding repair done. The center console was removed and repainted with some body panel dings removed..my question is that when I picked the car up the odometer was blank for about 10 minutes of driving....all of a sudden it lit up after being blank. Any info would be appreciated...don't want to assume the worst, like the odometer was disconnected for some joy riding. thanks...
  4. thanks, I was afraid of that...but now I also need the radio code...so much for doing one thing and causing two more problems...at least it's fun work...
  5. just took the passenger door panel off, via shop manual instructions, to locate a door rattle and after replacing the door panel, the airbag light stays on. I took the panel off a second time to check the plug to make sure it make a proper connection and it was tight. Is this some kind of a code that I need to have cleared? thanks, it's a 2000 cabriolet.
  6. My 00 996 has 45,000 miles and is on it's third Porsche authorized motor....prior to my purchase, so not sure who paid for them. The thrid motor was installed in 2003 and I figured Porsche had solved the problem by then. I just had the RMS replaced at a dealer and they informed me the seals have been "redesigned" and they haven't seen repeat customers with the new design. Time will tell, but all I can say is if an $80,000 car can't go further than 15,000 miles on one engine, there are serious problems.
  7. I have a 2000 996 with 45,000 miles on it. It is currently on it's third Porsche Authorized motor which has 6,000 miles on it. It is currently at a Porsche dealer for an engine oil leak and am afraid it is the RMS. Will find out tomorrow. I bought the car used, last year and knew about the three engines, but felt pretty confident that by now the RMS/shaft problem would have been solved as the third motor was put in the car in 2003. Scary to think that an $80,000 car needs a new motor every 10,000 miles. Oh and by the way, the current motor is out of warranty, by time only and dealer al
  8. I bought a 2000 Carrera Cab with 38,000 miles on it last yr and through research found out it was on it's third Porsche Authorized motor and the last motor was installed in 2003. I was sure that by this time the dreaded seal problem was fixed. Well, it is currently at a Porsche dealer in Palm Springs, CA for an engine oil leak and it looks to be a seal. I felt an odd vibration the other day at idle, similar to a high speed cooling fan. It went away and I didn't think too much of it. The next day, after driving back from LA (200 miles) I parked it in the garage and the next morning had a p
  9. still learning how the response process works here, but thanks for all the info and this is by far the best Porsche owners source of usefull info I've found.... johnhj
  10. I have a 2000 996 cabriolet...6 speed. The headlight washers were not working when I bought the car and decided to replace the two nozzels and the pump attached to the washer tank....still not working and the fuse is good....any input would be appreciated...by the way, the windshield washer system works fine and have tried and assume the headlight washers function when the headlights are on and you hit the windshield washer/wiper lever... thanks, johnhj
