  1. Assuming you are talking about the two wire with the black connector at the top of the picture sitting on the metal base. On the US model this sits under the passenger seat on the right side and is for the child seat air bag deactivation bar. See the following post from earlier in the year. http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?s...hl=heated+seats
  2. I also replaced my backup switch (MY99 C2)using the same excellent reference with no spill of fluid. I was concerned going into the procedure based on other post that some fluid would spill out. I took out the old piece and was ready to put in the new unit but there was no fluid coming out. I'm not sure what you mean by a vacum effect? Bottom line I think you are fine.
  3. Liz, there are no other flaps in the middle of the car but if you could post a picture of the attaching points you reference then maybe somebody could help with the answer. The flaps in the picture have nothing to do with the aerodynamic stability of the car at high speed. I would suspect that your alignment probably has more to do with your wandering issue. As a point, in the future you need to post your model year, Model, body type, and left or right hand drive when asking a question. That helps get to the point quickly.
  4. Bryan, I'm out of ideas. I'm not sure if it is related to the work you had completed. The problem with using a larger fuse is that you might damage the equipment or overheat the wiring. A good web site to get the basics on fuses is http://auto.howstuffworks.com/wfc1.htm One last thought. In the front truck did the water get as far as the stereo amp or the CD changer if you have that option. those are located at the rear (closer to the passenger compartment) of the trunk. Other then that it sounds like a trip to the Stealership! John
  5. This is certainly a challenge to figure out. I was wondering if you have had any water leaks inside the car. Specifically is there any water under the drivers seat. You mention in one of your earlier postings that the prior owner had a problem with the security system. Some owners have had a problem with the drain holes under the convertible tops (assuming you have one) becoming clogged which forces the water into the interior of the car. The lowest spot is behind the front seats. On the drivers side below the seat is the Security module which if soaked could cause some problems but I'm not sure it would tie into the radio short. Loren or Tool Pants might know better. As a last guess you might pull the radio to see that everything is tied in correctly. You will need a set of special tools to pull the radio which can be ordered online (under $5 USD). Short of this I'm out of suggestions. If you come up with the pcode for the aux/ input output please post it. By the way, as Loren indicated its not a good idea to up the fuse rating to fix a short. Good luck. John
  6. You also mention in your original post "the unit is a cdr210, out of a '98 boxster", is this a new unit that you put in recently? There is typically a cause and effect item that created the situation. Can you think of anything that changed in the last week. new unit from another car Ipod install Mobile phone install any other work to console
  7. Ahnospell44, uuuuhhmmm, Simple check but did you look at the fuse. It's unclear from your posting whether the unit has power but is just not functioning or has no power which might be the fuse. John
  8. 911porschefan, Take the time to read the link that Loren has posted. I have been researching this project and you will see that it has a complete list of parts that you need to complete the install of your new heated seats. Since you already have the seats you can eliminate the foam cushion heated parts from your list. You will need to create the wiring harnesses that will connect your seats to the switches you will install on the console. That is all described in the link. There is also come debate over whether some Porsches come prewired with the harness already installed to the point under the seat. If you do a search on heated seats you can see some of this debate. Mine did not and I will need to complete the full DIY project. Good luck. John
  9. Pvaughn, the removal of the front headlight assembly is described in your manual. The bulbs can be accessed and replaced after you remove the unit.
  10. I just replaced Flap #1 and Flap #2 in Tool Pants picture on both sides of my 996 . Here are the part numbers for left and right. I thought the 986 was the same up front for most parts but it does not look like your photo. 1 996 504 604 00 1 996 504 603 00 1 996 504 504 00 1 996 504 503 00 1 999 073 061 02 screw ordered them from Sunset arrived 5 days later.
  11. You can also DIY. Loren recently reposted the instructions http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=80 I had some rash on the wheels when I purchased my car and becasue I was scared to try the above I took it to the dealer who had a group come in and fix it for $100 per Wheel. They look great. I have since tried the above DIY method and it is easy. The important part is the temprature you paint at and to keep the site very clean.
  12. MY99 C2 Cab - I have a broken Input Shaft on my passenger seat. THis is the white plastic covered worm screw that runs from one of the motors to the opposite side of the frame to the gear drive. I've looked in PET and cannot find a part number. Is there a seperate PET for the seats? I can find it in the repair manual under section 7, page 185, part number 44, but I can't find the Part number. Any help would be appreciated. John
  13. I would like to follow up on Q-ship986 comments and are you sure it is Super glue. It also sounds like it could be tree sap from a pine tree which looks clear but is very hard. Do you park under a tree. As Q-ship986 describes this will come off with a little coaxing from a finger nail or plastic scraper. You can also use acetone or rubbing alcohol which will slowly break this down. Good luck!
  14. P1115 Oxygen Sensor Heating 1 After Catalytic Converter - Above Upper Limit P1117 Oxygen Sensor Heating 1 Behind Catalytic Converter – Below Lower Threshold P1119 Oxygen Sensor Heating 2 Ahead of Catalytic Converter - Below Lower Limit P0102 Mass Air Flow Sensor - Below Lower Limit If you join Renntech as a contributing member you get access to the codes. Your P0102 code indicates a faulty Mass airflow sensor most likely but it could also be the connector or faulty wiring. This as I understand can also cause the P1115 error code. The codes p1115-9 could also be caused by a faulty O2 sensor(s). I will let Lauren or Tool Pants confirm. A good discussion of the mass air flow replacement instructions can be found at this link. http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?s...3117entry3117 You will still need to get the CIL cleared at the dealer. Also in the future you can use the search function to search this web site for error code information.
