MY2001 911C4 CAB : Had slippage in 3rd when making a 90 degree turn as it shifted into 3 underpower. Ah I though low fluid so I changed the filter and the oil yes Porsche type. Now if I drove it right (go like a Porsche) and so 3, 4th then flashing indicator and limp mode. Took it to an Indy Porsche mechanic, replaced valve body input output sensors, worked on it for 3 months gave back no charge couldn't fix it. So I have been driving it in manual shifting at 2200 RPM works fine if I go to 2700 RPM bingo limp mode. The P0717 just; showed up today as I pushed it. The P0717 on line checking said the control module or ground fault. Anyone out there can help? Don't want to throw money at it and buy a control module.
Ronnie38 posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)My 2001 C4 Automatic had what appeared to slip (over rev) when making scarp turns, decided to replace transmission filter and refill, the first run after 10 minuets the transmission went into limp mode (lights on drive selector started to flash) check engine lamp came on (P0734 and P0734) was read. the reason given was input and output ratio wrong for both codes. The Durmatic gave no other info. So I proceeded to order both input and output sensors. Since I couldn't confirm if a shift selonod was bad. Mean while I am in Cal for the holidays I remembered I moved two of the magnets in the pan there were 4 magnets 2 each in the depressions in the rear of the pan I took one each and moved the forward closer to the input and output sensors. Anybody out there have any idea besides taking it to the dealer, at 75 bucks for the 5 liters of tranny oil each time I replace something to help me be smarter?
I'm new to Renntech and hopefully I follow the decorum correctly. If not I apologize. Anyway, I have a 2000 Boxster S. It has been sputtering on take off and gave codes that suggested the MAF was out. I disconnected the MAF wiring and it greatly improved the performance. I ordered a MAF and by the time it came in I believe my car went into Limp Mode. I installed the new MAF and cleaned the throttle body but it still acts like it is in limp mode. I also changed the spark plugs hoping this would help. The only code I'm getting off it now is P1118 and also the codes for missing on cylinders 2 and 3. Is it possible that is simply still in limp mode? If so is there a way for me to reset it?
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.
Lately my 2001 Boxster S tiptronic has been throwing a P0710 code. This is indicated first by my transmission selector lights flashing alternately between D and 4. Otherwise the transmission behaves normally, shifting up and down, in both auto and manual modes. Information on this is sketchy. My durametric tells me that the code (P0710) is a Transmission temperature sensor fault. I would first like to check the sensor, a procedure which is briefly outlined in a repair manual ("Check sender for ATF temperature with wiring. To do this connect an ohmmeter to control module connector pins 21 and 22...etc.) Now there's a box in my rear trunk that's supposed to be the control unit but where exactly are the connector pins 21 and 22 located? Sorry if I seem a bit dense here. :unsure: -James
