skyline replied to clb0099's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)It will not fit. I have been down that path before. The turbo lid is longer front to back by quite a bit. I.E the engine bay opening is smaller on non turbo cars. Thats what they mean by cut. Mega job to do.
skyline replied to skyline's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Thanks for the reply, i can go on a bit sometimes, but what i wanted to know was, will the light extinguish itself when the fault clears. I.E Can i take each wheel off & short the sensor cable out then check light until i find which sensor set is at fault.
skyline posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I have a warning light on. Its 2nd in from left 996 2001, Think its brake pad wrning. It had new pads & discs fitted when i bought car many years ago. The light was on then, Never bothered me. Now its MOT time & new uk rules. No warning lights or a fail, Do i need to get the light reset or is there a problem. All pad wear sensors ok & car has only done 21,000mls. Any help appreciated.
skyline replied to juddtaylor's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Mine had that problem on one side & it was a ***** to get the plug to insert. Eventually it did go in but as said they are flimsy. Surely easiest way is to check the socket with a voltmeter before inserting the headlight,, no voltage & the problem is elsewhere.
skyline replied to BrianMarks's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)They do not sell batteries any more at costco in the UK. They stopped stocking them a while back.
skyline replied to skyline's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Thanks very much for that. It looks pretty straight forward.
Jus a quicky. How do i get the instrument cluster forward or out enough to change a blown lamp.
Wow how wierd is that. I just received my key blade this morning from them, They are good & they clone a lot of chipped keys from motorcycles/scooters for me, which is my busness doing cat D/C write offs that rarely come with both keys. I asked them & they can do the porsche key code job, but they are in Kent & need the car to read codes. I,m in Leeds so its a long drive.
Ok thanks for that. We have quite a few locksmiths in uk that advertise they can supply new key & program for around £90 Maybe this will be the route i take. Stupid thing is i only want a spare key as going to sell the car soon & does not look good with only one key.
Hi thanks for that but can you be more specific, I.E is the key immobiliser part a different job to the door locking mechanism. In the key fob there is a little metal tube which i guess is the immobiliser chip. Then there is the rest of the remote door opening circuit board. Are they all limnked or is there 2 seperate functions. Sorry if i appear thick on this subject.
skyline posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I know i need to get a locksmith or porgy dealer to program spare key for car but can i program the key fob for opening doors etc or is this all part of the coding system, I have a spare key fob as mine is US/ duff
This the mod i did some years ago & they sound great. Basically it,s the same a genuine sports exhaust from porsche but without the valve & actuator. Only problem with this mod is it can be a bit too much if you do long runs.
skyline replied to skyline's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Yes i will be doing soon. I do start it & run up to temerature regularly but i know what you mean. Thanks for that. Shame to sell it, i love it to bits but could use garage room to do more bikes.
skyline replied to skyline's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Thanks for answers. I buy & sell cat C & cat D insurance write off bikes & scooters, most of which come with either just 1 key or no keys at all. The latter being i have usually to purchase a new ecu, eg Vespa GTS 300. New throttle body ECU assembly best side of £400 + new key set & then code manually. On the other hand when i get just 1 key there is a company in the UK you send them to & they clone your key & return it registered post. I take it this is not the case with the porsche system. Sorry to appear a bit dum but i have not had my 996 out of the garage for 3 years. And not been off the driveway for 4 years. Sad i know but work & other stuff,,,
