  1. This just started - When you turn the key to start the vehicle, there is a noise (hum) from the sub-woofer that's stays on until the starter cranks. When the car starts, everything related to the radio is normal, but the LED on the Rear Defroster switch stays on all of the time. I was told the Rear Defroster relay is bad so I purchase a replacement. I'm having a problem locating this relay. Is it located under the dash or behind the rear seat? Which relay is it?
  2. 2003 996 cabriolet. I was putting my top up yesterday and I heard a strange noise as it was finishing putting up the windows. The sound was almost like a popping sound (not very loud). I went to open the door (drivers side) and the window did not drop. I tried the outside handle and the inside handle and no drop. The window goes up and down fine. I have done a search and read several great write ups on micro switches and regulators, I am still a little stumped on this one. Is it a micro switch issue or possibly an issue with the top controller. I did not have a chance to investigate or
  3. Yes, there are cheap aux cables available on ebay, Crutchfield (Blaupunkt cable), and even direct from Becker. There are also ipod adapters available from Crutchfield (Blau cable $5), Becker (over $100), and Scoshe ($180). I think the only one that offers both aux and ipod is the Scoshe and it's $180 and you would have to adapt it to the Porsche pinouts. Blaupunkt ipod $5: http://www.crutchfie...blaupunkt+cable Becker: http://www.beckeraut...trafficPro.html Scosche Audi: http://www.scosche.c...io/product/1822 The reason I started this thread is that I wanted to add both AUX and
  4. Hi all, First of all I apologize if I do anything wrong since I only just created this account in order to ask this community a question. We own a Porsche 996 Targa 2002 and as we all know the 996 is prone to engine problems such as IMS and oil and coolant mixture. Today when I was checking if the engine still had enough oil and coolant and decided they needed a fillup I saw something that I did not really like. I've uploaded two pictures one of how the coolant looks and another picture of where you add the oil. Is the yellowish stuff you see ok
  5. Hello Members, Just found some instructions for changing spark plugs without having to remove the rear bumper/license plate light, and intercoolers. The process is more or less - remove rear wheels, and then remove various heat shields - does this seem viable? Here is the link I found: http://bd8ba3c866c8cbc330ab-7b26c6f3e01bf511d4da3315c66902d6.r6.cf1.rackcdn.com/Porsche996TMajorMaintenanceupdate.pdf Using this method will save a bunch of time let me know, ewholz
  6. Looking through the PET I noticed that M96 3.6 997's use a different pressure plate but the same clutch as the 3.6 996. I have read online that the 997 clutch pedal is lighter than the 996, wondering if I can install a 997 pressure plate in a 996, anyone tried it?
  7. I need to get my rear window stitched on my 2000 cab. Looking for a referral in San Jose, CA / Bay Area. Any advice is welcome. Thanks in advance
  8. Hi all I started another post similar where I thought the Horn was the culprit of my battery drain, but it was actually the Alternator causing me a drain, so thought I would summarise the issue on a new post so that this might help other 996 owners and save them a lot of money and time! This is the original post and is detailed, so take a look at this afterwards: http://www.renntech.org/forums/topic/48867-2000-porsche-996-battery-drains-the-alarm-horn-is-a-constant-3v-and-hums/page-3 ​ Issue/Fault: So my 2000 Carrera Cabriolet was draining the battery in around 6 days, I was sho
  9. Hello Porsche experts, I recently purchased a used 911 Carerra, 2003 and had the fuel pump fail. So I looked around in Orange County to find a Porsche mechanic and ended up taking it to Hergesheimer. They replaced the fuel pump but a few days latter I experienced something very troubling. The car would start but idle was somewhat rough. Revving the engine was a challenge in the lower RPM 1000-3000 then it became a bit smoother when driving with load on the engine in the 3000-4000 RPM range. Alarmed by this I called the shop to bring the car in, but this was the day before the Rennsport Re
  10. Hello All, I got Air bag code 21, some posts say to replace the clock spring and some say to check the front left crash sensor. I don't have a spare clock spring laying around so I thought I'd start withe the crash sensor. Anyone have a photo or two or a good diagram on where I can find it? Believe the part number is 996.618.221.00. Thanks in advance!
  11. I have a PCM 1 coupled to a HAES 6x40 amp. I want to replace the PCM1 with a Parrot Asteroid Smart. The area where the unit fits has a cup holder which I have been taold is a problem in itself. I have located a facia and wiring kit from Euro Motorspeed but I have been told that because the Parrot is a 4 channel and the amp is 6, I am unable to link thme together! Any one with any ideas?/ I
  12. Hello everyone, As some of you may already know, we talked about designing a waterproof case for the Alarm Immobilizer Unit in Boxsters and 996s. These units get water damaged easily if the convertible top is left open during rain, or just by the accumulation of water by the car's water drains, because Porsche installed them right on the floor of the car. The costs entailed to repair this problem can reach $1,000's easily, that's why it would be more cost effectuve to protect the CLU to begin with. Therefore, after many months of revisions and working with vendors to compl
  13. Hi all My 2002 996 coupe has a squeaking passenger seat when I push/pull the top or back part of the seat, including driving over bumps. I have half powered seats,,, the top/back is powered while the lower seat assembly is manual. The squeak happens when the top/back is in any position including up so you can access the back seats. Something must be loose, but my question is if there are any DIY instructions that I could focus on instead of trying to tighten every bolt and hex screw that I can access. It's pretty compact down there... Appreciated... Thank you in advance
  14. Hi Guys, I bought a 1999 996 C2 and it now has 135K miles. I lived in a state where I didnt need to smog it for a decade. Now that I live in California, I went to smog the car and had failed due to lean fuel mix issue at slow RPMs on the NOX test. Since the car hasn't had a lot of repairs on it in the last few years, I figured it was time to replace some basic stuff. I ordered a bunch of new O2 sensors off Fleabay and installed them. Boom I now get almost instant P1115 and P1119 codes. I read Lorans advice on checking the ohms... Here is what my old units read and here is what the new
  15. See broken part in this Front Left wheel well pic of my 04 996... assume it is a suspension stroke sensor, but what does it do, and more importantly, what is the consequence of driving it un-repaired? I wonder how the ECU uses the input if there is no electronic suspension on my car... hmmm. The part it mounts to is plastic so it must have struck road debris I am guessing... if anyone knows the Part number so I can order a replacement many thanks in advance! Thx!
  16. Hi all, I am new to the forum and the Porsche community! I am currently in the market for a 996 911 C4S. I located an EXTREMELY clean C4S with the following options and specs. Because I am new to the community, I am not exactly sure what it is worth. It seems there is a large discrepency between one comparable car to another on eBay (sold listings). 2003 911 C4S •75,XXX miles •Manual transmission •Little to no cosmetic or mechanical flaws - interior and paint look brand new •All services up to date (IMS issue not resolved...) •Carrera White Exterior •Natural Brown Leather
  17. Hello All, Joined the Porsche Owner World coupla weeks ago and this Forum today :D Purchased a 2004 996.2 GT3 Comfort Spec that I am using as a Daily Driver, and loving it :D Needs a bit of work as I am reverting it to Factory Spec i.e. removing SatNav & iPod peripherals, wheels back to original Silver etc. Previous cars are: 1964 VW Type 1 1969 Porsche 912 2007 VW Golf R32 Look forward to both gleening sage advice and contributing when possible!

  18. I guess some people like to personalize their cars. I guess it accomplished what the owner wanted, it made me snap a picture! Would you do something like this?
  19. Hi everyone. I just called my local tire shop to purchase some rears (285/30/R18 Pirelli P Zero Rosso N4 Porsche Spec) for my 996 and they told me that they are going to be discontinuing this tire next year. Has anyone else heard the same? Just for thoughts, what will you ride for a daily driver tire (wet/dry performance?)
  20. Hi, I need winter tires on my 1999 Porsche 996 Carrera. I found some used 19" (99736215602) ET57 8x19 front with 225/40r19 and (99736216202) ET51 11x19 rear with 255/35r19. My question is, will these fit my carrera? The owner have had it on a 996 Turbo (not 997 Turbo). Thanks :notworthy:
  21. Has anyone tried one of these yet: http://www.bendpak.com/Shop-Equipment/QuickJack/BL-3500.aspx I purchased the BL-3500 thinking that it would be perfect to lift up my 996 turbo. We can argue about weight margin later. It seems like plenty to lift up that car. The issue becomes the lift point locations on the car. The BL-3500 can only reach out to 46" between its rubber stops. If one was to purchase the BL-5000 it only reaches about 51" maximum. I've measured 54" center to center of the 996 lift points. This seems like it makes this product a no go with 996/986 and 997/987 owne
  22. Hello, Please have a look at this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4WD1b8naXgo On my car it only lasts for a couple seconds. This occurs perhaps 1 per 20 startups and I have a strong feeling that only after cold nights or during cold mornings (defining cold here as 40-50F). I drive this car on a daily basis. Would you consider this normal behaviour? Many are posting similar questions like mine but without a video it is hard to judge if it is fine and occurs because some oil flows past rings to combustion chamber due to Boxster engine layout. Also some are talking of wh
  23. Hey all, Looking for some help here. I developed a pretty bad coolant leak about a month ago, i was losing about 1 liter per week. When I got under the car i saw the dripping coming from the tip of the waterpump, and surrounding areas. Since the car had gone about 60k since it was last replaced I bought that and replaced it thinking that would be it. However, after assembling everything back together.... The leak seems to be coming out of whatever is next to it. Attached are a few pictures, any help as to what this is; or how to troubleshoot would be great!
  24. I did an oil change on my 2004 996 Carrera using the correct amount of Porsche specified oil about 1,500 miles ago. Now after running and car and letting the oil settle back to the oil pan the dash computer level and dipstick are reading the same. The oil level is half way from the min/max levels. I know that the oil level is in the acceptable range now, but is considered having low oil? The reason why I am asking is because I brought my car to get diagnosed (and fixed) for a faulty oil pressure sending unit problem that occurs rarely when the dash warning pops up saying oil failure a
