Durametric Fault - Cabrio Module

Recommended Posts

Please can someone help. I have a 2000 996 3.4l Carrera cabrio and have tried to resolve a convertible top problem with a V6 Durametric tester. The tester is reporting a unrecognised error code 16 for the cabrio top module which I cannot find anywhere. This error will not clear. The top opens up to the service position and goes no further, but will close again. If I ask the Durametric to calibrate the roof, nothing happens.

Any advice would be welcome.

I had the same problem. I contacted Durametric, they sent me a new version that isn't released yet ( I am now able to calibrate the top, and code 16 is now read as 4. I haven't actually fixed the fault yet, since I'm not sure how, since I haven't done any research. Plus Since summer started, the top has only not worked maybe 4 times, and always stuck in the up position.

Hey guys,

I have top issues as well. I haven't checked for any codes, but my top (pump) has completely stopped working. Mine is also a 2000 cab. So I figure something busted. I just can't find it. I had a leak somewhere, and added fluid every couple of months, but it got worse, and there is no pressure. The clam shell opens & the top unlatches in front. And the windows roll down. After that I have to lower the top manually, and there is zero resistance. once lowered, the shell closes & all is well. To close it the same thing happens. no hydraulic resistance, and I can't find the leak. Any ideas?

      Hi everyone, new guy here, hope someone can help?
      my 996tt 2001 tip awd will not start, it turns over, I can hear the fuel pump run, I can smell fuel from the exhaust, it does not fire up. I borrowed a VDO code reader from a friend no engine issues but it has 2 fault codes under the body tab.

      I have an ’00 996 C2.  I recently removed the dash and most of the components down to the firewall to repair the AC baffles and install an new stereo and amps.  Everything is working fine except the airbag light was is on.  I bought a Durmetric cable to reset the system and after multiple resets I still get error codes 20, 26, 28 and 30.  I am sure I missed or damaged something getting everything back together.  Can anyone recommend a place to start looking based on these code?  Alternatively can anyone recommend a place to find more information on these codes.

      My first post to the forum, hopefully someone can help, I had a problem with the air con not blowing cold, my first port of call was to check the fuses. all ok but when I started the car again I had PSM failure and PASM failure messages on the dash. Car hadn't moved. I have run Durametrics and tried clearing the faults. I now have the following fault codes.
      PSM fault codes
      Fault sport mode
      Steering angle sensor not initialised
      Air conditioning
      Outside air/recirc. air flap motor
      I was wondering if anyone has come across this and if there is a quick fix for any of the above, it just seams strange that the faults just appeared even though the car had not moved and all that was checked was the fuses.
