My first post on this site. I have been searching on several forums trying to find the location and access for the relays. I've been able to find the location and am just starting to dig into how to access them. To find out which relay panel I really need to get at I'd like to know which relays are in the panels. Found one panel up under the dash (drivers side) which looks like it will be the most difficult to get at (maybe need to remove the lower dash panel to access that one). The other appears to be in the rear behind the carpet on right side of trunk.
Any help here would be appreciated.
I was checking / fixing fuses, pulling them and putting new that kind of stuff and now my windows do not open and the front light are always on! The fuses are ok but I am wondering if by playing around maybe i messed up a relay or something! I tried to fix the fuses to what they should be, in the past the car ( used ) had fuses too big for what the chart called for, so for example i replaced a 30 for a 10 if a 10 was the one needed etc.
I just picked up my new (to me) 1980 911 SC Targa and now I'm encountering my first glitch. Both power windows are not working! the fuse looks good. Could it be the relay? is there anyway of testing the relay or do you just have to buy a new one and try? Any advice is appreciated.
Hello Porsche fans,
I have just purchased my first 928 and she is a beauty. It's only been a few weeks. Now I'm doing what I love the most which is tinker and make it even more perfect. On a recent cruise, I noticed that the engine temp got really hot (after being idle for a minute or two). I was just around the corner so I went home immediately. The red light litt up as I pulled in the garage. I parked it immediately and turn her off. the previous owner mentioned that the fan should run even after you turn the car off and remove the key but no such thing happen. I also notice that coolant started dripping on the floor. I determined that it was just coming from the reservoir from the overheating.
with that, I was confused because the fan didn't kick in. I took the car out again today and she seems to stay cool when running at speed (35mph or more). but once again would heat up when stopped at lights or driving at slow speeds. I could not hear the fan kick in at all. But I noticed something strange, the fan inside the car cabin would kick in on bust for about 10 secs randomly. At any point it would just blow at top speed even with the control knob turned off! what's up with that?
this is my first 928 and I'm looking for some direction. I should also mention that the fan was changed to an electric one. Hopefully that doesn't complicate things too much.
Any help is appreciated.
