Booboy replied to Booboy's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Thanks Ahsai, I will give this a look see and let you know what I find.
Booboy replied to Booboy's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Loren thank you for your response. The cable from the starter and to union #15 has been replaced. If cable were for tiptronic would it still fit my application as I have a 6 speed trans.? What is part #11, and how might it figure into my issue? As everything works after moving cable, I'm thinking its something up front?
Anyone experienced this scenario? Upon turning ignition key, heard a click, and had no electrical power to anything on car. After opening hood and looking around I grasped the positive battery cable and pulled / jiggled slightly to check connection from where it disappears into the firewall (if you will) area, and all electrical power was restored... car started and everything fine? Next time I went to start car experienced the same scenario. My question is...where, what does positive battery cable connect to that would exhibit these symptoms. Thanks
Checked with Porsche about warranty for CAT, my warranty expired in January this year. Asked if they could help as problem was identified prior to warranty expiration, and was investigating issue... and they said, "NO, but maybe the dealer can help you, if you have a good relationship with your dealer sometimes they may help you out". Don't understand why Porsche can't help me, but the dealer might? Unfortunately all my Porsche purchase's (7) to date have all been through private owners. Had a 2000 Ford pickup bought new that lost a motor out of warranty and Ford replaced it FREE. Frustrating!
I have an '07 S experiencing the same issue. I too thought sound is resonating from the muffler, but now not sure. Will try the same tensioning with pry bar and see what gives...any others experiencing this issue?
Need more symptoms to even begin to help. Does it cough and sputter as it dies? NO clean shutoff just dies- If it does, it likely points to fuel related. If not, likely electrical. Thinking in this direction too- Does it happen only once per drive or does the shutdown repeat? Will explore this I just drove home for fear of being stranded. Tank full? YES Have you ever drained the tank and cleaned out the screen? NO Does it happen sooner if you drive hard? Not attempted due to issue- When was your fuel filter changed? Two years ago- Fuel smell? NO- Jiggle the ignition key. Warn? Will try Get yourself a new DME relay and exchange. Every 911 should have a spare in the glove box in any event. Will do- Clean the fuse connections. Will do-Check/exchange the red fuel pump relay in the front.Will do- Check and re tighten fuse connections. Will do- Thank you for the thoughtful reply and direction. If anything else comes to mind based on my responses please drop me a line. I will address the suggestions outlined above and let you know how things progress. I too am leaning towards electrical, oh boy my strong point...not. Again, thank you-
My '89 911 has run flawlessly. However, of late it has been acting up. Car starts fine I drive for five minutes or so, and car shutsdown. In the time it takes me to pull off the road...say a few loving words car restarts after maybe five-ten seconds cranking. Anyone else experience this type of problem?
