Matt Hubbell replied to Marc010's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Mark, are you in Cedar Rapids? Looks like a Porsche I saw moving down Edgewood Rd the other day. I too have a 996 but it doesn't get out as much as it should. Like the wheels. Just bought some used 19" Black honeycombs from a gentleman in town and I'm hoping to get them wrapped for next year. They need a little love over the winter before I put the rubber on but should look nice. Good luck finding smooth roads in town. Interstate is about as good as it gets...and it still is subpar.
Also just noticed that the convertible top indicator on the dash isn't lit when turning on the car.
Have a 996 C4S Cabriolet and while topping off my hydraulic fluid this am (having problems closing top in the heat), I inadvertently did something that now has the car not starting, draining my battery, registering airbag and failure roll-over indicators, automatically extending the rear wing... Now when pressing the button to lower the top, it's providing intermittent power and clicking. I tried to follow a DIY on this site but couldn't get the fluid to stay in the hole. So I unbolted the hydraulic pump and turned it upside down. Still couldn't get fluid in so I put everything back together and called it a day. Tried to start the car and got all the errors listed above. Could I have shorted something out in the process?
