The “Enthusiast” version standard price is already a “discount” off the “Pro” version ($287 vs. $675 or higher depending upon configuration). For comparison purposes, Porsche’s PIWIS is around $17,000 for the first year……..

Here is Durametric's reply:

Hello Tim,

Thank you for your interest in Durametric. We appreciate your request, however we are unable to proceed with any group buys. We have received many requests for group buys over the years, but have never allowed them. The reason we don't allow group buys is because it has an immediate effect on our regional distributors and goes against partnership agreements.

We understand that a group buy would be beneficial in many ways but unfortunately cannot take you up on the offer.

If you have any further questions, please let us know.

Mr Dempsey replied as follows:

Hi there. Thanks for contacting me. Group Buys rarely work out well for anyone involved, so we've avoided them in the past. When it's all said and done, the customers are typically not happy (takes forever to arrange the details), and the vendors end up doing a tremendous amount of work for lower revenues.

Thanks,

Wayne

Yea it's too bad. Durametric is a crappy tool but it's about the only one we've got. For those of you that are also Audi or VW (VAG) owners you probably know the Ross Tech Vagcom program is 1000% better. It seems like Durametric is trying to emulate the Vagcom program but they are about 10 years behind Ross-tech in their software development.

Actually, Ross Tech is very complimentary towards Durametric on their website, noting that Porsche uses a totally different diagnostics computer code system than VW and Audi…………..

      Hi,
       
      My 99 996 has started beeping twice when I press the key fob.
       
      It locks and then immediately unlocks.
       
      Also when opening the drivers side door, the window goes down when handle is pulled but goes straight back up when the handle is released. So the window obstructs the door closing.
       
      I have the following Durametric Alarm errors:
        11
      Voltage failure during alarm
      output
      Status: not present
      Frequency counter: 1 10
      Voltage failure at terminal 30
      with alarm system active
      Status: not present
      Frequency counter: 1 46
      Control locking synchronization

      Status: not present
      Frequency counter: 2 49
      K lead

      Status: not present
      Frequency counter: 1 21
      W lead (DME immobilizer)

      Status: not present
      Frequency counter: 1  
      What's the best way to proceed with fixing this?
       
      Thanks
      Ravi

      2010 Carrera S 6M Cab 150k miles

      TLDR: Dealer tells me the code is 2402 and Durametric returns 0024 with a description that matches the dealer.
      I am getting screwey values when I look up actual values.
      I try to clear codes and they don't seem to clear.
      Has anyone else seen this?

      I got CEL after about 1000 miles after replacing the catalytic converters myself. I pulled the codes with my Durametric and got:
      0024 - DMTL Diagnosis module for tank leakage; pump drive rUpper limit exceeded
      0010 - Intake camshaft driver

      I took it to Porsche because I wrongly figured this was related to my cats. They pulled the codes and said the car was throwing 2402 and that the 0010 was in the system but had been there for a long time and was not relevant.

      Now I had cleared that 0010 about a half dozen times so I thought it was fresh. It did not register at the time, but that means my reset did not work.

      They said that it would cost $1,100 to replace the DM-TL and filter. It was very likely the right thing to do because they tried to actuate it and it would not spin.

      As I have dropped about $14k on my Porsche habit in the last 30 months and my wife has had about enough of this, I paid the diagnostic fee and replace the parts myself (saving about $700).

      Now my Durametric is still pulling the same codes plus a new one:
      0014 which it says is No signal/communication

      That code, like the 0024, is not in my copy of the Porsche 997 essential companion.

      So when went to look at live values relevant to the DM-TL the Durametric was putting in some weird results. Percents or bars when the units should have been seconds.

      Background: DM-TL is a complicated pump/sensor that determines that there are no leaks in the gas fume recycling system. It pulls low amps if there is a leak, so a high value means there is a problem with the pump or maybe a short.

      I had to disconnect the passenger side door airbag as part of door panel removal, to replace the door lock mechanism. To check that I replaced the part correctly, I reconnected the battery and turned the ignition key, and got an "Airbag Failure" warning. The fault didn't clear even after disconnecting the battery, reconnecting the airbag and closing up the door panel, and reconnecting the battery.  I confirmed the airbag was reconnected.  I suspect that it may be a "latched' fault that can only be cleared via the Durametric tool - thoughts?

      I'm unable to connect to the engine module on my '09 Cayenne with my new Durametric cable.  I called tech support for an assist and was told that they are still working on coding to allow for connecting the 957 to the engine module.  The Durametric website  does list the MED9 for V6 as being available for reading/clearing codes.  Wondering if anyone else has found a way to get this to work.  I'm using version 6 software.
