Welcome to RennTech.org Community, Guest
I have a 2003 Boxster base model (2.7) with auto. Current showing code P0600 and DTE 61. Had a few different Porsche mechanics look at the issue and have not found a solution. Cleaned the electrical connection at the transmission and verified the ground connections at the tiptronic control module. Had the DME, tiptronic module and immobilizer checked and they were found to be working.
Does the Can-bus connection between the DME and the tiptronic module extend to the immobilizer or other modules? All I could find is information up to the 2001 model year.
Looking for a reason why the DME Is not communicating with the tiptronic and how to test the Can-bus circuit. Is there a wiring schematic available for the 2003/2004 boxster?
Hi all 986 guys.
I will post for the first time.
I have '98 986K(Tip-s),Can I swap 5-Speed(or 6-Speed) manual transmission?
In other words, prepare missions, pedals, manual transmission CPUs, etc. like a typical car model (for ex, BMW).
Is it possible to update only the mission, not the upgrade to 3.4L?
Has anyone ever seen or heard of such a vehicle?
I can find 986K 5speed as much as I want, but I want to stick to my one.
1999 986 2.5 Boxster. (5 spd)
Not many problems with the car but cruise control doesn’t work and the spoiler only extends halfway or so.
Current actual problem with the car is that I can feel vibration or shaking in the steering wheel (and in the car to a much lesser extent) after shifting into fourth gear. After shifting into fourth gear, the shaking seems to persist even as I slow down, or after shifting into fifth. It will persist even if I shift into neutral but will stop after I come to a stop.
It’s strange to me that this is the case when gears 1-3 don’t have this problem. I am guessing that it’s an issue with bearings or alignment in the front wheels since i’m feeling the vibrations in the wheel but hopefully someone here has a better idea.
So for my car , 996 C2 , 2003 with 70 TMiles and M030 suspension .
Im currently in process of purchasing several parts for suspension refresh , so to say .
Whole process came to a corner , left or right , from perspective of refreshing it since rear shock absorbers , i have planned to purchase are not available , anywhere .
At least not for reasonable/decent price
Plan is to refresh my stock M030 shocks , front and rear , where Bilstein B4 is standard which came with car .
Now , i have received front shocks but rear ones are not available and supplier does not know when they will be available .
I could not find them online , also , not a single supplier have them on stock, so only option , order them , pay them and wait for Bilstein to make them and deliver ..
Development of situation is is that my supplier have offered me Bilstein B8 as option , more or less same price as B4 .
Now, guys ,..
As part of refreshment i have bought several additional parts, which are part of suspension and fit B4 setup, for all 4 corners..
hexagon nut M 10
additional spring - bump stop
So to say rubbers and plastics ..
Springs i plan to keep , so no new springs planned ..
Will all those part be usable with B8 shocks , so plug and play .
What will be height difference , is B8 height adjustable or height is same as M030
WIll B8 shocks be delivered with installation manual
I have read recent article , it seams, came in right moment for me 🙂
So positive opinion on Bilstein B8 , which is ok , but im not worried about B8 on German Autobahn , my worry is as i wrote , will this be plug and play considering replacement of current ROW M030
or something needs to be bought specifically beside refreshment parts i have already bought .
Have some experience with wrenching around , front shock mount , Wheel bearing , basic service , sparks, mufflers , ignition Switch , etc ..
But few additional thingies and advises as additional knowledge is always welcomed .
Thank you very much guys ..
