    Porsche 996 C2
  1. Has anyone ever come across this noise before? I was trying to start the car but after two cranks, it wouldn't crank anymore. Maybe its a low battery issue? But then I heard this vacuum like sound coming from the engine bay (engine was off, key was not even in the ignition). (sorry for the portrait upside-down camera) The little intermittent crackling noise made me almost think there was a short circuit somewhere. Battery drained down to 10V really really fast, and then died after this. Thoughts?
  2. Thought I'd post an update for anyone else that goes through this situation in the future: it was a fuse. I believe C3
  3. No, was still aligning the window to fit horizontally since there was massive gap between rear quarter window and main drivers window. Re-teaching was next on my to do list when the switches stopped functioning all together. Now that I think of it, both window switches stopped working right after I raised the window to the highest position and closed the door to check alignment (i can confirm microswitches and regulator work as window goes up when door is closed and down when door is open). Battery is fine. I started the car and let it run for 15 min to ensure battery was charged. I'm leaving battery disconnected for a few hrs to see if it might reset some setting in the ecu.
  4. hi all. i'm a bit stuck. i just replaced my window regulator and was in the process of adjusting it so that it closes properly when suddenly, my switches stopped working. It's strange because both my passenger side and driver side window switches dont work (i was only working on the driver side regulator), but both windows go up and go down when I open / close the doors. I whipped out my multimeter as well to test the switches to make sure they're getting juice and im seeing 1.57v from one contact to ground (is this normal?). Anyone have experience in this issue? I checked the fuses as well, everything seems in order. I just need to be able to lower my window so i can loosen the bolts and adjust. Thanks in advance
  5. Hi, i apologise for being a lurker and not really ever posting since i joined; but i have a serious issue right now :^( ive been DIYing most stuff for my car - pioneer nav - footwell lighting - seatbelt replacement - o2 sensor replacement etc etc. but this has me absolutely stumped. a few weeks ago the interior trim / lining of the sun roof came off while the sun roof was open. it basically got stuck above the headliner in the car; so after i closed the sunroof, i wasnt able to ever open it fully again. i tried to tackle this problem today and one problem led to another and this whole sunroof thing has me so frustrated. Basically where it stands now is; ive removed the entire ceiling of the car - center consol, headliner, sunroof, sunroof interior trim, motor, rails.. EVERYTHING, the reason for this was because after i unscrewed the sunroof pannel and removed it, the sunroof rails were not doing anything when i pressed buttons. i though there was something stuck in the tracks at first, but couldnt find anything. then i took out the motor to see wht was up and realized that the close button doesnt work but the vent button and the sunroof forward button do. they only turn the gears a few rotations before stopping. obviously because my roof is in the most extended positon (open) the motor only clicks and doesnt do anything when i press buttons; so i removed the motor to find that it can only rotate in one direction. what do i do??? i think its the **** programed circuit (the one with the NEC chip on it) thats got the problem. Any way to reset it; or to let the circuit know that the sunroof is already in the vent position and it needs to stop trying to make it vent more? p.s i broke the mechanism that lets me manually crank the sunroof lol. so thats not an option. ahhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!! any help is appreciated, or even a service manual that tells me how the hell i re-build the sunroof. p.p.s my possible diagnostics: something stuck in tracks the computer that tells the sunroof what to do is wonky the close button is broken motor for some reason only turns one way pleaase help with solutions, or a service manual to show me what to do :(
