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?
