I'm in the process of installing a solar powered battery maintainer. The goal would be to wire a NC relay to the solar panel output. In order to energize this relay, I would like to tie it to something that was 'on' when the engine was running. I would prefer a location in a box like the fuse-box. I do know where the phone jack is under the e-brake and would prefer not to use that (I have other plans for that power...). I've looked through the fuse sections of the schematics and can't tell what I should tap off of, or if there is a spare someplace. Any help is appreciated. Regards, Vic
Good idea... from what I've read it can be a hereditary issue anyhow. Sounds like a possibility... does the 986 S have enough guts to pull that off slamming 2nd gear on a redline shift? It did feel like things were breaking loose back there. it sounds like a strong possibility. I'm hopeful that is what it was (it certainly makes sense in retrospect) the descriptions I read make it sound like it happens at launch, not at 35+MPH... Launch technique? comes from a Magnum R/T Auto (floor it) and Honda VTECs (always shift at red-line).
Help. 2001 986-S 50K miles (does NOT list the M222 - traction control) I was stoplight racing some bling-covered pickup, just because the mood struck us both. First time I had really hammered the car. Hard off the line in 1st - red line - 2nd, quickly flooring it... I felt a bad mojo shudder/vibration that kept up for a few seconds. very reminiscent of ABS shudder (but I was definitely not braking). It was time to back off anyhow, so I did and it drove fine. I'm nervous to try and repeat. A little more info... the car may have drifted a bit, but not sure if I just veered a little on the steering. I could use some advice. I'm a bit fearful of dropping the transmission or something equally disastrous until I know what this is, but want to drive it hard when I feel like it.
Working on the delete. moved all the stuff around to get the radio and climate control up top. got the part (986-552-113-02). The part shows Boxster 986 (1997-2004) (up Through 99). I have a 2001 986 S. The holes/studs don't seem to line up... Has anyone else seen this and found a work-around? I'm curious about rattles and squeaks even though it looks like the middle console will hold it down some. I've squished and shoved this thing as far back as I think it will go. (driver's side has the carpet panel removed. i think a short-shifter is called for. adding some electronics to put a USB charger and AUX in the arm-rest console)
Try 5072 BLUF - It worked; many thanks to you! Rest of the story... this was the code the seller had and I witnessed him type in, three times. That put it in the 'wait' state. after waiting and using the code, it worked like a dream. no idea what was different... It needed the code b/c of a recent alternator replacement. weird, as there is no doubt now the code was correct. thanks again.
