Gary S K Lee replied to dgjks6's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)next step PDK style LED tail lights!!!
Gary S K Lee replied to Dan104's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)how come no one has mentioned about the crankshaft sensor cable?? that controls the idle...
I got the LED third brake light and got no codes...as long as you don't have every brake light in LEDs then you should be fine.
thank god a new battery fixed the problem!
This morning when i tried to start my car it has no battery to start. I tried to jump start with another car it started but then the battery died shortly after driving for like 5 mins. Does it mean the battery can't hold charge or the alternator is not working at all?? Should there be any warning lights popping out if the alternator is not working?? I already ordered a new battery i hope it will solve the problem. thanks Gary
Gary S K Lee replied to MarkC's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)my 02 C4S's battery just died on me...i tried jump starting it but it died shortly after. Is that mean the battery is dead or the alternator is not working?? It just happened over night without any symtoms.
right now it saids "guidence deactivated" just wondering is it possible to activate it? I found out in my car's booklet the codes for my PCM 1 does it have anything to do with activating it? btw im located in Hong Kong.
Gary S K Lee replied to RD996's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)how do i know if it needed to change??
went to my garage and found out there's an ABS code stored in the computer...had it reset and now the lights haven't been popping up at all. Im glad i have my problem free C4S back!
I will surely have it check on monday...
don't think that's related to tires as the light went off only at very slow speed.
mine's a 996 C4S with tiptronic...i googled about this PSM/ABS light thing and it's a really common problem. Some say it's the alternator not giving enough ampere and might even cause the engine to stall.
ABS/PSM light went off once while driving...what could cause this to happen?
my garage helped me ordered a new MAF and that caused the problem...changed back to old one and works perfectly.
