Hello I have a tough question for any advanced Renntech users who have either stripped a 997 back to minimum wiring for racing, or fixed key issues Can anyone help with my alarm issues. Im building a 997 Track car- using a salvage chassis and the remaining parts from a rolled and written off cabriolet. Im think the key worked to unlock to car before i pulled it apart, but cant be certain as the engine was already out so there were limit functions to activate then. Since moving the dashboard and whole wiring loom into race chassis, I can unlock the doors (yes, its the correct key, ive moved the doors over too), and the dashboard lights up to tell me the current odometer values. However the whole time from when the battery is connected, the alarm siren is going off (currently a clamp muffles that noise to save the neighbors). I can put the key in the barrel, rotate, and then still remove it (the Barrel lock appears to electrically be live, as it releases the key). My guess if that the key has lost its coding for the alarm system, but I've tried following these instructions, https://rennlist.com/forums/997-foru...working-2.html, with all combinations of button holding, pushing the hazard light switch, foot on brake, and key in/out barrel .... without any success in recoding the key. Its worth noting the windows dont go through the usual drop down upon lifting the door latch sequence, im assuming this is due to the alarm running. Any suggestions. - my options seem to be getting the local agent to reprogram the key - are there any other steps i should try to revive the key. I do only have 1 for the wrecked chassis's system - a final last though is am i missing some switch that needs bridging from the cabriolet circuits to tell if the roof is down/up Regards Logan Marriott
So on the way home yesterday, everything drove fine. Key fob in my pocket, door handle unlocks no problem, "dummy" entry and drive works no problem to start the car. Drive home and go to turn the dummy key to the left for 2 seconds (normal) and it won't complete the "shutdown" (move column in and what not). Go to turn the dummy key back to START and it says NO KEY FOUND. try to lock and unlock with the handles, nothing. The key fob BUTTONS work to lock and unlock....but the proximity sensors on the handles do not. To start the car now i can no longer use the entry and drive feature.....it requires the use of the key in the fob. Three questions to start the discussion: 1. Why does the fob key work to start the car, and why do the buttons works, but nothing else? 2. Considering EVERYTHING no longer works, is it safe to assume the Kessy module? 3. Is there a fuse location i could check to see maybe the Kessy is not powered? I don't have any sort of diagnostics, which i know will make it difficult to diagnose. But last resort will be to bring to and Indy shop with the porsche programmer. Thanks
