So, in the process of getting ready for the summer at NE, I tried two months ago to open my convertible (C4-99). The convertible stuck at 2/3 and didn't go back. I got the car to my indie, stayed there for two weeks and got it back un-repaired. He told me that he tried everything, did recalibration and still, he couldn't fix it. I gone to the dealership too, paid $540 for diagnosis and they told me that they have to replace latch and/or module and since I'm loosing some oil from the cylinders, both cylinders. They quoted me $5400. I hugged them and left :) Now, the last 2 weeks: Durametric comes up with error 16 (unknown error - latest version of the software) In the beginning, when I tried to calibrate with durametric, it was pulling the top back and then it was timing out but without any warning light on the dash. After this was done the only way to close the convertible was manual. This happened more than 10 times during my tries. Now, durametric doesn't do anything at all, I just get the 'working' icon and nothing happens. I follow the workshop manual and I changed the following with no changes on behavior: Module Top latch Still nothing. To add on this, when it stops I hear a 'click-click' sound from the back. The sound is from the module itself, but as I said, I replaced the module and nothing changed. The clam shell opens and closes/locks fine. I don't get a warning light when I'm closing the convertible. I'm getting a warning light only when it stuck. All windows are going up and down. The hydraulic oil is always full. Any ideas or suggestions are strongly appreciated.
yasinkk posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Hi everyone, I've got an 01 C2 (my02) and I'm now having trouble removing the key from the barrel. After quite vigorous jiggling I'm able to remove it but the park light stays on as the barrel does not pop out to off position. I have tried some WD40 but to no avail. Also, when the key is being moved to the on position it seems to get there in one movement rather than clicking into the various position/s before ignition and start. The only way I have managed to bring the barrel to off position was by tapping quite hard onto the sides of the barrel once I had the key removed. What could be the cause of this problem? Your comments would be highly appreciated!
Hello All, the switch INSIDE my passenger door lock mechanism failed, the one that tells the car wether the door is open or shut. I replaced it with a used unit that seemed to be the correct part. (see the attached image). After the installation of the new part, I closed the door, and then nothing will re-open the passenger door. Both handles won't work, even with force and banging on the inside. Locking and unlocking repeatedly won't trigger the door handles to successfully open the door. I've disabled and reconnected the battery, and nothing. I took the door panel off while the door was still shut (which was no easy task). This is where I'm currently at. I can't take out the door lock mechanism to put the old one back in because the bolts to take it out are on the outside of the door, which is shut. Does anyone have a good idea as to how to force the passenger door to open? I fear the mechanism I got wasn't for a Boxster with the M535 alarm, and the car doesn't understand that it's there, and therefore won't unlock it. I can revert to my old unit as long as I can get the door open. Does anyone here have thoughts? Any help would be greatly appreciated. - Matthew
