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. Anyone know how to remove old adhesive? Anyone have any idea what adhesive to replace it with? Anyone know how much the Porsche/Piech families made selling replacement center caps last year? Remember when paying through the nose for your precious replacement Center Caps that the Porsche and Piech families are the 7th wealthiest oligarchs in the world per Wikipedia.
Does anyone know where this is? I was able to catch a code today when my PSM light came on, and I went into limp mode at highway speeds. I pinout would be nice, so I can trace the can-bus wiring. DTC 1314 - DME Googling around, sounds like loss of connectivity to the DME, all other modules have not logged any issues talking to the DME. This is the last of symptoms a massive wire harness failure I had late last year, after repair this is the 3rd time this has popped up. DME has no codes, may be a red herring but the AWS advanced weight module, I have trouble talking to it and my "Passenger Airbag light Disabled" no longer lights up.
I am getting this, i think it is related to a fuse that is not working but i cannot find the fuse that covers that. i had other failures but electrically they have been fixed one by one, car was in a flood. ideas / suggestions?
This happened just few days ago with my 2005 997 C2S which has been well serviced with only 44,000km mileage. While I was driving in town at speed of about 34-40km/hr, after I turned at the corner, there was traffic in front, so I slowed down and just before the car stopped, all the lights on the dash came on and the car stalled, then I tried to start again which it did but immediately stalled again and from there it felt like the battery was flat as I could only hear click sound and starter motor was not turning. I then called the tow truck company (lucky nearby), from there the horrible thing that I saw from the back of the car really scared me, the road was full of engine oil from the back of the car. The car was then towed back to my mechanic and over the last few days, they have taken out the engine and realized that the IMS bearing has been completely broken into pieces BUT quite luckily according to my mechanic I was driving slow, otherwise the engine could have been completely damage without much he can do. My concern is according to various forum posts, IMS bearing failure usually have signs such as engine oil dripping in carpark which it didn’t occur in my case. The car was running well without any unusual noise. Has this kind of things been happened to anyone before? Now, my mechanic said as the rebuild cost will be very high, he suggest me to just replace the bearing, take off the oil sump to make sure no broken metal being left in the engine, I can avoid an expensive bill. Further to my case, I do suggest to have your IMS bearing check specially while you have your gearbox off the car. Thank you
Hello every one, I´m new here, so please be patient with me :) I have a 911 966 carrera 4 with a PCM 1 16 bits. Yesterday I was trying to put the phone card on it and it never recognive the sim. - Since my car is imported from germany will it accept the Poruguese sim card or it is bloked? Since I never cound put it to work at a sertanly point on the phone it apears something like emergency call that I click to start. After that and no call was done but the equipment keeps emmitinhg the emergency cal. I pressed the buton that we use to zoom the maps and make choices (as a enter) for several seconds and looks like the emergency desapear, but from that moment the radion nevver switch off as usualy when I remove the keys from the starter. - what to do to put it back to normal? I see I have a german manual for he pcm since i do not understand german is that a way that anyone could help me by pointing me where to get it in english or even spenish? thanks to you all
For a little while now, my passenger side window has not been dropping down to allow the door to open/close. So I bought the microswitch and went to install it on saturday. Well, it wasn't until after I had the door panel off that I realized I don't have the triple square bit to remove the latch assembly NO worries, I'll put it back together and do the fix after I pick up the correct tool. So after the door panel is back together, I fire it up and notice: 1- the power windows don't work 2- sunroof doesn't work 3- rear defroster doesn't work 4- map lights don't work. Now, what would pulling the door panel off and putting it back on have ANYTHING to do with this list of failures? I checked the associated fuses in block D of the fuse box. They were all fine. Is there a relay connecting all of these features that may have failed? One other thing that I can't imagine would have an impact: When I went to remove the door panel, the wires that go to the little orange LED in the handle pulled out of the connector. I plan on picking up some wiring supplies at radioshack to fix this, but its only the handle LED...if that is somehow wired in series with the rest of those features...I would have to question Porsche's sense in that. Anyone know what might be going on here? Also, does anyone have a wiring diagram of this car? Thanks, Connor
