Ignition replacement/upgrade

Recommended Posts

Ok, so today, I replaced my old ailing ignition with the new upgraded part from Porsche ($130 at Sunset, bless my wife for picking it up for me). Took about three hours, only because I had to reassemble the left vent. what a pain. I took my time, made sure all the connections were good. I actually ended up taking the instrument cluster out, and it made it so much easier.

After putting it all back together, reconnecting the battery, my heart sunk when I turned the key to start it and nothing. I then turned it off, and tryed again, and it started. Let it set for a while, tried again, same thing as the first time, no start, then re-try and it started.

Any one have any ideas? I"m positive that all the connections are good, and the battery is charged.

If I can't figure it out with assistance,I'm just going to take it in.

Thanks in advance

BTW, those of you putting this off, its not that bad. Just take your time, place all your parts, screws, etc where you know where they came from, and you'll have it done in no time.

Thanks to this forum, and all who responded to my other post which encouraged me to do the entire switch assembly.

Well aside of a couple of starts today, now it does absolutely nothing. Took everything apart again, went through the connections again, and nothing. Even bought a new battery on the outside chance that was the problem.

Really bummed now, as well as perplexed. I have no idea where to begin looking. Its almost as if the security systen has shut every thing down. Anyone with any ideas, please feel free to respond.
