The answer seems to be no when I check with a multimeter. Also the switches themselves have different numbering (not the part number, which is obviously different): 01 50 1 for the central locking switch and 01 51 1 for the PSM switch. On my central locking switch, I get the following when the switch is not actuated: Pins 1 & 4: open circuit. Pins 2 & 4: open circuit With the switch actuated, I get: Pins 1 & 4: 0 Ohms Pins 2 & 4: open circuit I've double checked that I'm measuring the correct terminal numbers - they are marked on the switch itself in tiny numbers.
I'm trying to diagnose an alarm double beep issue and a "gone crazy" central locking switch. Part of the troubleshooting steps involve testing the switch, which is supposed to have 5Ω between two of its terminals when the switch is activated, and ∞ when not activated. Assuming I've read the writing diagram correctly to get the pin numbers of the switch, this does not seem to be the case. The local dealer does not have a replacement switch in stock, and I was thinking of trying one of the other switches with a built-in LED (like the PSM one) instead. So my question is are all of the switches with the built-in LED electrically the same? Obviously, I can test the function of the PSM switch using a multimeter to verify, but thought I'd ask here first.
I picked up a Lenovo laptop for $250 specifically for my garage. It runs Durametric, my radar detector updater, and the controller for my Sonos speakers, one of which is in the garage. It also lets me browse this forum amongst others and Alldatadiy. I can wirelessly print to my printers in the house and so far it works quite well. I was trying to use a $100 tablet with. Single micro USB connector for charging, etc. but this was more trouble than it was worth. The cheap Windows laptop is a more useful solution. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/lenovo-110-15isk-15-6-laptop-intel-core-i3-4gb-memory-1tb-hard-drive-black/5496140.p?skuId=5496140
David Sayed replied to Myotis's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I have the same thing going on with my driver side mirror (left). Different fault codes, but just the mirror image. Did the OP ever resolve this?
I want to adjust the emergency brake. What problem did you run into?
Really good to know since I will be doing a brake job in the future. I just Googled "brake vibration dampers" and one of the first results was Pelican but -not- in the 996 section: http://www.pelicanparts.com/catalog/shopcart/911L/POR_911L_BRKpad_pg4.htm If you follow the link to the chart on the web page, you can see sizing information for the 996. Then when you look at the page linked to above, some of the part numbers begin with 996! Do you recall the sizes that you needed? I'd like to be prepared before I attempt the job.
