SLC911 replied to SLC911's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)One more question are you able to just replace the connection point on the cables? The piece that actually pops onto the ball point on the transmission.
SLC911 replied to SLC911's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Sorry for the late response. The cable retaining clips do not seem to be keeping the cable in its keeper.
SLC911 posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Howdy Everyone, I just completed a clutch kit replacement (clutch disk, pressure plate). After getting everything installed everything seemed to work great until reverse stops working. I climb under disconnect the linkage and reattach it and it will works fine for a few minutes. A few miles down the road it stops working again. When I put in the reverse gear its like first gear or its just not letting me get all the way over but it sure looks like when looking at the shifter. I can repeat this process several times with the same results. So here I am pinging all those great minds on here for help or suggestions.. Fire away with any questions you may have to help troubleshoot.. Transmission was lowered on a tranny jack sat there and was raised back into position. 2002 Carrera 3.6 6 Speed
OK OK rookie mistake... C2 FUSE sorry everyone for being a DA Thanks for all the ideas and advice. Now on to bleeding the clutch.
Is there any wires on the left side harness that would control firing of the motor? I thought most was on the right side harness.
Another thing was I turned the crank while putting the serpentine belt on. Would that change timing?
The idiot light is a thermometer temperature display with the words "failure indicator" I did a quick shot is starting fluid it acted like it wanted to fire but didn't. Not sure where that leaves me.
Where is this coolant temp sensor located? How many MAF sensors are there, I thought just the one that goes into the air box? There are 4 bolts and one electrical connection to the throttle body.
Can you explain a little more as to the harness issue? There was a short caused by the license plate light wires. It melted wires through the harness, that I fixed by splicing. Which brings up the question of if the O2 sensors are not connected properly would that prevent the car from firing? :huh:
2002 996 Carrera 3.6L I dropped the engine/tranny. I needed to fix an oil fill tube and a rear left side wire harness issue. Car ran before the work. I now have the engine/tranny back in the car. I dont have the transaxles hooked up or the clutch bleed. The rear of the car is still up on stands. I wanted to try and start the car before reassembling everything. Well the car turns over but will not fire. The only idiot light that comes up on the dash is a temp sensor failure or something like that. I went back through the book and I seem to have everything hooked up. I know a motor needs four things to fire air, fuel, spark and compression. The fuel pump can be heard upon turning the key on. I get fuel to the connection on the top left side of the motor. The air box is removed. One thing I havent checked was spark. The spark plugs where change less than a month ago and it ran before. I dont recall removing anything that would remove the spark. Is there a connection at someplace that removes that from the coils that I could have disconnected.(I will check spark tomorrow). Sorry guys I am really searching here. Not sure what exact info you all would need. The car has been sitting for about 3 weeks no fuel or power. Any suggestions onthungs to look for or try would be very helpful. Ask for any info you may need and ill do my best to provide it. Thanks.
Well digging into it the burn seems to go back behind the radiator overflow further then I can reach. So now starts the process of engine and transmission removal. Something that has needed to be done anyway. Now I can replace and clean those things that need it. This will be my first time doing the engine removal. :eek:
Porsche only made very large sections the main harness system as one piece, and those large sections tend to be very expensive as well as time consuming to replace. What problem(s) are you trying to solve by replacing it? It appears that I had a short and melted the harness. This is in the back of the engine compartment.

SLC911 started following Rear Wire Harness- that runs the left side O2 sensors engine compartme
Does anyone have any information of how or if its possible to replace the left rear engine compartment wire harness? This harness in the engine compartment plugs into the left side 02 sensors, lid release and license plate lights. Looking at the schematic it shows one complete harness.. :cursing: :help: Anyone ever have to replace this? Any ideas on how to replace
