I have a 1999 996 Carrera 4. Oil pressure reads 5plus all the time the engine is running.

No idiot lights.

I want to diagnose the problem myself.

I want to fix it myself if I can.

I suppose to start I should check and see if the sending unit has wires attached. Where would I find the sending unit on the engine block.

Under the car, drivers side, centerline? etc.

If they are attached my next thing is to check actual pressure.

Could it be that high? Obstruction somewhere?

Oil is not overfilled and is fresh.

Can any local shop check the pressure?

Where do I get a new sensor, best quality and price if it is just a sensor?

I would think if it were a bad sensor it wouldn;t read anything.

Ask me about lungs. I can tell you all about that. No really.

Here, well, I'm a novice wanting to learn.

Frank

Oil pressure sender failure is a relatively common problem

Passengers side top toward firewall. Use a 19mm crows foot with a universal on a long extension up from the bottom.

      CEL came on, no missing or other noticeable engine anomaly.
      El cheapo ELM OBDII reader produced these codes:  Was able to extinguish CEL.
      P3104 Intake manifold air control solenoid - short to positive
      P0104 Mass or Volume Air Flow "A" Circuit Intermittent
      P0204 Injector 4 – circuit malfunction
      This suggests an intermittent wiring short.  Any ideas on where such might have occurred?
      Thanks in advance

      Hi Porsche Gurus
      I’m trying to troubleshoot a little issue I have that just my drivers door courtesy lights (and drivers sunvisor light but not sure if that’s different issue) don’t work, both the red and white ones and only the one door(rhd car) 
      now ive checked the common things like all the fuses and the wiring to see if they were damaged or corroded but they seem fine,
      The one thing I would like to check but can not find any info on is where or what is the switch or sensor that tells the lights that the door is open to turn the lights on? 
      If I can find that then that will at least eliminate all manual fixes that I can think of unless any of you have come across this before, if it’s something simple and I look like a fool for not thinking of it then I’m happy to be a fool as long as the lights work:)
      any help would be much appreciated 
      thanks

      Hello
      Im working on a unique porsche project and as part of it im looking to use the current (>2016) generation 95B Macan LED HeadLights. 
      What im looking for is the Wiring Diagram from the service manual program, so i can trace what needs to be connected to where relative to my 997.1 wiring harness.
      Yes, im aware this will be difficult. Im not looking to just plug and play.
      I already have all the wiring for the 997.1 and 997.2 cars (and a few others)
      Can anyone help
       
      Regards

      Hi guys, looking for some help with the wiring behind the dash on a 911 3.2 Carrera. My customer has fitted a new loom behind the dash and repaired the instrument wiring. I’ve managed to sort out the fuse box wiring connections and corrected the wiring to the clocks/Speedo etc. I am having a problem getting the wipers and indicators to work. The hazards work when activated but the indicators won’t do anything. I have wiring diagrams but can’t seem to indentify 4 wires. They are located up by the cigar lighter wiring behind the dash panel. The wires are red/black, black/blue, brown and grey/Green. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I also have a relay 911 618 102 01 which I can’t find a location for. Thanks in advance for any help

      I just finished installing a factory tow package on my 2009 Cayenne.  When I hook up to a trailer and test, everything works except for brake lights.  I checked for power at pins 3&9 on the 7-pin and only have power present there with blinker and not brakes.  I've check all fuses related to the tow package (1,3,5,19,&41) and all are good.  I tested the trailer on another vehicle and the brake lights work.  Since I don't have power to those pins, the issue has to be with the Cayenne.  Do I need to have the computer flashed if I am not using electric brakes?  The trailer I will be hooking up to has surge brakes, so I didn't think I needed to visit the dealer.
      Any assist would be greatly appreciated!!!
      Not sure if it makes a difference, but when I purchased this car, it had a Curt hitch with a flat blade connector in the back compartment.  I didn't trace out and remove this wiring, only the hitch.
      Thanks
      -Ty
