  1. Some additional details. There are actually two brown/blue wires. On my '99, they come out of the cable bundle on the right side of the radio opening. (Most of the wires run to the right-side toggle switches.) The stereo shop that installed the nav/radio system for the previous owner tied both brown/blue wires together and used an in-line connector to electrically short the brown/blue wires to the main brown electrical ground. The reason I mention this is that you should disconnect the two brown/blue wires from where they are currently shorted and tape them off. You should also ensure th
  2. Problem was the radio wiring after all. The installer tied the security wire to ground, which is the wrong thing to do. Thanks for the help everyone. Rob
  3. Thanks brihakwilles for the comments. Since I last reported, I've been working with Durametrics staff to collect logs and to try out newly modified configuration files. Durametrics has acknowledged there is an issue reading the Inputs under the Alarm section. Durametrics has been very helpful and responsive. The last configuration file we tried had a lot of the inputs working correctly so I believe they are close to a solution, which I suspect will be in the form of updated .config file. I have been using the lastest version of the software, as confirmed by Durametrics, so it would be int
  4. I spoke with Durametrics just now and they said that others have reported the same issue with the software - i.e. the Inputs listing under the Alarm section does not update all parameters. They asked that I record a special log file and send that on to them and I'll try to get to that tonight. Durametrics believes they will have a software fix (revision) within 6 to 8 weeks but that is just an estimate. So the goods news (for me) is my Alarm Control Module is probably okay. I suspect now that my problem is either the center console micro-switch or the passenger sensor. I'll report back wh
  5. Thanks Loren. I believe I'm using the latest software version from Durametrics. I did try to uninstall/re-install the software but the results were the same. I'll take a look at the center console micro-switch (if it is not too hard to get to). If that switch, or any other primary switch, was bad, would an Alarm Fault be generated or would I get just what I'm seeing? Thanks again.
  6. Greetings Renntech members. I'm new to Renntech and Porsche. I recently purchased a 1999 Carrera 996 (36K miles) and the alarm system has never worked correctly. I did not know that a single horn beep after remote locking was not normal until I had a chance to read the manual. (My American cars normally beep once after remote lock.) Symptoms: After remote locking the car the horn beeps once and then the dashboard LED goes into 2-flash mode, which I understand means one or more issues exist. I bought the Durametrics unit and hooked it up. This is where I'm getting confused. No fault cond
