clock no longer visible in cluster

Recommended Posts

After 15 years and 150,000 miles, I switched on my 2000 C2 Cab yesterday and saw the clock was not visible. I can find no fuse that is dedicated to the clock ... only various "interment console" fuses that mention several items each. Everything else seems to be working normally.

 

Has anyone had experience with this issue?

The light bulb behind the clock is burned out, I replaced mine with a clear LED and resistor. or get a new bulb. The service manual shows how to remove it.

Thanks. I'll check it out when I get home from this trip. I'm surprised the clock is lit from behind by a single bulb, but will be really glad if this is the fix.

Problem solved. Just as you stated, the single bulb behind the clock segments was burned out. Replacement bulb for 2000 996 is 999-631-303-90-M97. $1.25 each from Pelican Parts. DIY has good info on removing the instrument cluster, which is surprisingly easy to do.

      Hi - 2002 996: Scoured the lists but can't find this particular cluster problem anywhere.  In short, my salvage cluster shows a list of errors on start up but my original was fine....  Here's the details.  My current cluster shows an intermittent airbag failure warning on the led screen followed by the idiot light.  It usually occurs at start up, clears at the stalk and the idiot light remains on, but flickers on occasion.  My mechanic had ruled out everything he could related to the airbag warnings and since he didn't have a spare cluster, couldn't swap to test for that. I personally purchased a salvage cluster, removed the battery terminals, installed it and it came to life (I'm also having to buy replacement connector housings because mine disintegrated).  The problem is the info screen pretty much scrolled through a variety of issues like oil pressure feedback, temp feedback, fuel feedback, etc.  The oil pressure gage was also unresponsive.  I expected the odometer to be wrong, but didn't expect all the errors.  I also started the car and while it ran, it did run rough, sputtered a bit.  Do I have a bad salvaged cluster?  Does the cluster need to be programmed (beside the odometer)?

      Hello, 
      I own a 2,5 liter, Manual transmssion, 97 Boxster. It is a Left wheel drive.
      recently I have renewed all its interior so the car was taken apart.
      Problem is : instrument cluster has the following issues:
      - brake warning ON - car has New break pads
      - no outside temeperature reading
      - no lights for the blinker and long beam - they all work, but I can't see it in the cluster.
      - water temperature needle(indicator) and fuel indicator - Do not budge although I have a full tank and I can hear the vents starting to cool the engine.
      We ran some diagnosis but we could not find any fault - the tester said at some point that the ECU does not "see" the features but then again, when we ran a Check on each of them, tester confirmed no flaws.
      Note : the instrument cluster was changed last Year, WORLD flawlessly, so... no reason for it to Not work...
      Please help.

      Greetings,
       
      Short Version:
       
      Clock keeps resetting itself to 1:11 PM. It will progress in time for as many as 17 minutes, before resetting. Any thoughts on what causes this clock behavior?
       
      Full Detail:
       
      Our 2004 Cayenne S had varying electrical "ghosts" since we bought it, used, in April 2014. I finally tracked it down to the ground points MB22 and MB23 both having loose nuts. The grounds for all attached electrical components was intermittent, especially in high humidity conditions. For the record, the primary symptom that led to diagnosing the loose ground was the cabin air conditioning/heating system completely losing power. Using the diagram: Wiring Diagram - 25 - Ground points left-hand drive - 9PAAE1 - 2004 - 4, I was able to isolate the ground points. That was resolved in December 2014.
       
      Ever since then, the clock keeps resetting to 1:11 PM (or 13:11). All three clocks -- on the radio, near the speedometer, and on the AC/Heat control unit -- display the same behavior. Sometimes one clock will reset just before the others, but only moments before. The clocks are obviously synchronized somewhere.
       
      As part of troubleshooting this issue, I replaced the battery under the driver's seat around October 2015. The car contained the original factory battery, prior to that replacement.
       
      Any thoughts? Can anyone explain, or point me to the documentation on, how the clock system works? For example, what ultimately controls the "current time" how are all three clocks interlinked?

      Hi all,
       
      I've seen older posts on the this topic and only recently have repaired mine on my 03 Cayenne S. The sound indicators in the car began to weaken and then finally stopped altogether. I have driven it almost a year without the sound.
       
      I've found a company that actually sells the same speaker for replacement, so no soldering in a new speaker that may or may not fit. It's plug and play. They sell just the speaker, or the full kit (with tools). Worked GREAT.
       
      Here's their site:

      The official Porsche instructions for removing the cluster aren't quite complete - these guys have a guide with photos that walk you though the removal. Seems a bit daunting at first because you have to remove some trim and move some dash pieces out of the way, but if you take your time and don't break anything it was quite easy.
       
      Jeff was great - quick email, quick ship, even quick follow up.
       
      Good luck all.

      I have a 2003 996 C2 Cab. I would like to put white face gauges on it. Stickers do not appeal to me. Opening up the cluster to replace the faces sounds scary (if I go this route I will send it out to be done). I located a used cluster at a dismantler part number 996 641 984 93 it is out of an 02 turbo(6spd). My question is will it work in my car? Do I need PIWIS do reprogram it for my car or can I do this with my durametric? If you converted your car to white faces How did you do it? Did you have any problems? Looking for opinions and options. Thank you in advance.
      Jim
