1999 996 c2 6 speed coupe slow cranking

Recommended Posts

:cheers: Hi: I have had my car for 7 months, from the day I received the car it has turned over slowly but it has always started that is before yesterday. After driving for about an hour when I went to restart the car it turn it turned very slowly and then stopped, like it has a dead battery. after waiting a few seconds it started right up. Note this is a weekend car and may sit for 7 plus days between drives.

I have read through the posts and found a lot of talk about battery problems as well as ignition switch replacement, I probable need a new ignition switch, however I have a question regarding testing the battery under load. On most vehicles I would disconnect the coil wire and crank the starter for 10 to 15 seconds with my ohm meter attached to the battery looking for a drop in voltage. Is there a simple way to do this on my car.

Thanks for all the great info.

Sounds like it might be the starter - check it out before replacing the battery.
