  1. Wow -- what was your resolution? How did you fix it? How was it determined? -- Did it just fail -- or was there a cause? thanks, Mike Catastrophic engine failure.
  2. Looks like the "c" clip on the brake booster vacuum line.
  3. I had a freeze plug issue on a 2000 S at 32k miles. Ed.
  4. Sorry I missed this thread. I have a set of heads off a 2000S. :o
  5. I have the same ticking noise from the radio in my 03 996tt. Car does it 50% of the time. Should not be related to remotes since they were replaced a couple of months ago. Car battery was also replaced. Its annoying not to know what causes it...
  6. I received mine last week. Would definitely recommend. Worth every penny.
  7. Looked for 2 hours all over the car. I did not find any trapped or chafed wires.
  8. Richard- Thanks for the reply. Here are the readings: 1st test- Ohmmeter at plug 1, alarm control module pin 23 and DME plug 88 should display <5ohms - actual reading -250 @ 2000k 2nd test- Ohmmeter at plug 1, alarm control module pin 23 and ground should display infinite- actual reading out of range 3rd test - Voltmeter at plug 1, alarm control module pin 23 and ground with ignition switch on should display 0 Volts - Atual reading 5.37v So failed the 3rd test. Will try replacing the alarm control unit. Lets hope that is it. Any other input will be appreciated. Edwin.
  9. JFP - Thanks for the reply. Anybody else? Come on guys, first track day is March 3! Edwin.
  10. After replacing the engine car will not start. Using Durametric tool, only codes are alarm related: 21 No engine start possible 60 Central locking limit position locked 49 No communication with PST2 16 No unlocking of doors in event of accident 33 No passenger compartment monitoring Since the last race I have removed radio and A/C and all of its components, removed passenger side airbag as well as door (both) airbags, removed airbag system controller. I understand that the only way to clear alarm related codes is a PST2. Any additional help/comments are appreciated. Thanks,
  11. The display on post 2003 cars are different from the pre 03 ones. It's kinda like a dot matrix display. Also, the wiring is different so I guess you would pretty much need to swap out the current wiring harness and display if you were to use a new DME. Post 03 cars were using the tidier Controller Area Network (CAN) wiring. Hope I'm not talking rubbish I am aware of the CAN bus on the 03 cars, but isn't the CAN bus just for the accesories such as A/C, navigation system, etc? or is it an interface for something else like gauges. I failed to mention this is a full time track car.
  12. Just finish putting in the new engine, a 2003 Variocam Plus on a 2000S. Since there is no fuel return on the 03 fuel system, I had to exchange fuelrails, keeping the 03 injectors. I am aware that I have to get a new DME - 7.8, but the shop manual also mentions that oxygen sensors and MAF were upgraded in 03. Can someone confirm this info ? and has anybody successfully swap engines? What is the part # for the MAF? Is the DME, O2 sensors and MAF everything I need? Thanks, Edwin.
  13. Thanks for the reply Lauren. I will take it in and let you know the outcome. Edwin.
  14. Radio stopped working on my 2003TT. There is power but no "Porsche" on the display or audio. I remember a couple of weeks ago, it made a clicking noise when I entered the car. Did it a couple of times. Anyone had this problem? Is still under warranty but I'm curious.
