  1. I have a 2003 996 carrera cabrio. Recently it has developed a rattle or possibly a warning buzzer at exactly 60 mph. Could this be related to the limiter setting? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance Roy Parnell.
  2. My 1999 911 Carrera started smoking at a streetlight. Very smelly blue smoke was coming from under the engine cover. I pulled over and popped the cover. Blue smoke was coming from somewhere under the engine (not the exhaust). The engine stopped very suddenly. We don't have a local Porsche dealer, but the Subaru dealer owns a bunch of 911s and he has a couple Porsche mechanics. I had it towed there. The C1 fuse ("Engine Electronics") was blown. They replaced it, but as soon as they turned the key, the "cam adjuster wiring harness" (I do not know what this is) began to sm
  3. To all 996 owners with PSE, especially those with a 4S. I think my 996 C4S exhaust behaves oddly. I think it's a fault but you might tell me it's normal behaviour. The problem is that I've always had this 'fault' on my car so I don't know if it's a fault or intentional behaviour. If you have the same car, perhaps you can shed some light on this. When I start it, it's noisy and sounds great. It quiets down as it runs for the first 5 mins. I have the PSE system and when I press the button you can audibly hear the exhaust note change - quieter when on and lou
  4. Hi everyone, I just got a set of gauges for a 2005 996. I'm building a simulator for PC and would like to wire the gauges to work with racing games. I am in need of the wiring diagrams for the cluster. If anyone has a picture or manual that can help me out it would be great! Looking for inputs, power, signal.
  5. Hi, My 99 996 has started beeping twice when I press the key fob. It locks and then immediately unlocks. Also when opening the drivers side door, the window goes down when handle is pulled but goes straight back up when the handle is released. So the window obstructs the door closing. I have the following Durametric Alarm errors:
  6. hopefully simple question. helping 996 owner on facebook 996 site. he asks if rear view mirror for 996 and 997 interchangeable.
  7. Hi - 2002 996: Scoured the lists but can't find this particular cluster problem anywhere. In short, my salvage cluster shows a list of errors on start up but my original was fine.... Here's the details. My current cluster shows an intermittent airbag failure warning on the led screen followed by the idiot light. It usually occurs at start up, clears at the stalk and the idiot light remains on, but flickers on occasion. My mechanic had ruled out everything he could related to the airbag warnings and since he didn't have a spare cluster, couldn't swap to test for that. I personally purchase
  8. 2002 996 Welcome everyone to another installment highlighting the wonderful world of fragile Porsche parts! Have both 17" and 18" wheels and have recently lost the metal Center Cap logo medallion off of one wheel of each size. While removing the other center caps every remaining medallion fell right off in my hand. Metal medallion secured with a random dab of some type of adhesive. We have reached the end of lifespan of whatever adhesive the Center Cap supplier used to keep precious colored metal medallions stuck to those cheap plastic caps.
  9. wires came out of my camshaft sensor and not sure what order they are
  10. Okay this is REALLY specific. The adjustable tension cable on the drivers side of my cabriolet disconnected at the top where it threads (8mm) into the top frame, not at the bottom where it snaps onto the ball. The is a larger diameter (10mm?) clean smooth painted hole where the cable needs to thread in, which leads to the presumption that there was a nut on the back side? Searched all over including removing driver's side rear 'door' panel and fishing around with a magnet but no loose nut found. Looks like getting to back side of this frame casting would entail a major disa
  11. Hi everyone, I've had a spoiler warning lamp on since I bought my 1998 996 convertible a few years ago. As an electronics engineer, I decided I may be able to tackle this issue myself. Before starting, I have read numerous previous posts regarding this issue, and what the fixed-wing bypass harness (996 612 070 51) does. When the rear spoiler is elevated, I'm getting zero Ohms between the Grey/Brown (A2) wire and the Brown (A5) wire, as expected. This becomes open circuit when the lid is lowered. There is then zero Ohms between the Brown (A5) and the Green/Grey (A4) wir
  12. Hi all I have a low oil pressure problem on my 2003 996 C4S RHD / ROW, Tiptronic. Owned since 2012, oil change at least annually first with Mobil 0W40, more recently Fuchs or Liqui Moly (green) 5W/40. Looking for help from anyone who has seen something similar - I've looked at various threads on this topic but couldn't find the exact symptoms. Last oil change was done in Sept 2018 with the Liqui Moly green. About two months later, the "oil pressure too low" red light started to come on intermittently. Either on start-up, or sometimes when slowing down or waiting a
  13. The left door key switch on my 00’ 996 c4 will not lock or unlock. I took the handle and bracket out of the door frame. I was told what usually breaks is the cylinder but nothing appears to be broken. I don’t want to buy a new key so simply replacing the bracket isn’t an option. Is there a straight forward solution or do I need a specialist?? Any my feedback would be much appreciated thanks!
  14. Cabriolet side/mud flaps are actuated by this lead screw which is attached to the shaft of the drive motor. If your tops gets out of synch as mine did when the bolt that holds a side arm casting to the hydraulic piston fell out, then it creates a cascading nightmare of fragile part failures. First that spindly potentiometer arm with the lightening holes to save a hundredth of gram of plastic breaks off, now these. This tiny molded soft plastic nut runs on what I measure as a M8 x 1.5 pitch lead screw, which is apparently less common than the M8 x 2 pitch lead screw used
  15. List Mates, I have a 2002 996 c4. When my Air conditioner compressor is activated the volume of air coming out of the vents is decreased dramatically. It still blows cold but just very very low volume or amount. I have had it recharged , checked leaks , replaced condensors etc but nothing changes. As soon as you switch the ac off ( snowflake button) the volume of air through the vents goes right back up. Volume of air is fine on heat , defrost etc. I have never had this issue with any other vehicle. Any ideas as to what the problem may be?
  16. Pulling the front end on the GT3 to get at a dead horn... found the dust boot on the front strut torn. Has anyone replaced one of these? I had a competition suspension set up from Jae Lee at Mirage in San Diego and don't want to mess it up, but need to replace the boot. Can I just remove the mounting at the top and drop the suspension and replace the boot from the top? ANy help on this is greatly appreciated!
  17. 2003 996 seat height adjustment not working. Back seat adjustment works and forward backward manual adjustments work fine. Anyone experienced this and what might be the cause?
  18. Car: 2003 996 Cab. Symptom: The fuse for the front power windows and the fuse for the rear windows will blow instantly when a new fuse is inserted. History: The car was in winter storage and, though disconnected, the battery went 100% flat. I reconnected the battery and used a jump-start box and she fired right up after letting the battery pick up a little charge. But the windows rolled themselves all the way down and then (I guessing here) the fuses blew. When I replace a fuse, it blows even before I can get it all the way seated. Also, when I got the car home I r
  19. Hi, can anyone tell me if these compression numbers look healthy? It's a 3.6L from a 2002 Carrera 996 1 - 253 2 - 265 3 - 252 4 - 265 5 - 250 6 - 261 Thank you
  20. Can anyone offer advice on this please. The car is a recent purchase, 2002 4S Coupe with 92k miles. Drove fine for the first month, but now a whining noise sounds as if it’s is coming from somewhere behind the dash/firewall/front axle area. The whine varies with engine speed/gear selection, so it presumably can’t be from the tiptronic transmission or front axle otherwise it would vary with road speed. However, the noise completely disappears when the a/c blower is turned off. I’m not great on electrics but was wondering if the blower fan might be failing and needing more alternator output at h
  21. I am having an intermittent misfire issue with my 996. It started a few months ago, when the battery ran down after not driving it for a few weeks, and I had to jump the car to get it going. After a few miles, I got a CEL and the car started to misfire. Upon arriving at my location, which was just a short distance away, I turned off the engine and went about my business. Upon returning to the car, it ran fine. No CEL and did 65mph all the way home, which was about 20 miles away. All was good, until a couple of weeks ago, when on a slow drive, I got a misfire and the CEL came back on.
  22. I had to disconnect the passenger side door airbag as part of door panel removal, to replace the door lock mechanism. To check that I replaced the part correctly, I reconnected the battery and turned the ignition key, and got an "Airbag Failure" warning. The fault didn't clear even after disconnecting the battery, reconnecting the airbag and closing up the door panel, and reconnecting the battery. I confirmed the airbag was reconnected. I suspect that it may be a "latched' fault that can only be cleared via the Durametric tool - thoughts?
  23. The plastic screw on the door panel, inside the storage compartment, spins and spins but does not back out. See picture, attached, or step 3 of this door removal guide, for the screw I'm referring to: http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-remove-the-door-panel-from-a-Porsche-996/ Anyone else ever had this problem? Any ideas on how to extract the screw? Drill it out, use a screw extractor? Is there a suggestion for a tool to get behind the screw head, apply outward pressure, until the plug or nut securing the screw grips on something, allowing the screw to back out? I'm willin
  24. Hi-New to the forum and new to porsche. That being said does anyone know how far the steering wheel adjustment goes out. On a 2001 996tt? Thanks in advance.
  25. Hello, Please help, I just got my first Porsche and have a bit of bad luck lately. The latest is that I was out driving and all was well. I backed it into the garage and parked it. I noticed I needed to pull it in a little bit more. So I started it up, put it into reverse and the panel said "Selector Lever Not Engaged". So I slid it back into park. Waited a bit and then put it into drive hoping to get the shifter engaged thinking it was just a fluke. When I put it in D, the car started to back up. So the current configuration results in Park = parked, Reverse = Nothing, not even ne
