I totally understand logray, thats my thinkig as well. I at least need to get the car to crank and initiate the DME first. I dont think changing dash, wiring and gas pedal is really an option , as all I can see is this will devalue the owners car and cost alot of money. I am going to locate a matching 996 DME/ immobiliser and key and go from there. If I locate these units will anything have to be reprogrammed, or will they just operate?
The DME supplied is a 99 model but a 986, looks like the original loom has been used and all connected to the 02 engine. I havent looked at the engine wiring in too much detail. If I have to do something with the cam control later I will cross that bridge then. I have all the ipas codes for the replacement DME, immobiliser and the original VIN codes. So I can understand the system operation, what has to be coded so that the supplied matching DME/immobiliser will communicate with the car to activate the immobiliser, innitiate the DME to crank the engine and enable fuel pumps etc? Can I get this engine to run if I get a 996 DME/immobiliser and what is a ROW DME. Thanks for all the imput, this is giving me a lot more insight to the system.
Hi, I have a '99 model 996 that has had a previous engine swap, an '02 engine fitted. The car hasnt been going since the swap (6 years ago) and has found its way to me to get going. I will fill you in on what has happened, the original engine, DME, immobiliser was all sold together (gone) and from what I can tell the second new owner has supposedly bought a matching DME, Immobiliser and key from a wreck. The car wont crank or enable the DME. The key operates the doors but thats it. I worked out that the replacement DME is out of a 986. I have a pst2 but not sure where to go not having the original DME and Immobiliser. If anyone can give me a hand I would be very grateful as I have hit a brick wall, a new brain on the job would be great. Thanks Simon.
