2010 Carrera S 6M Cab 150k miles
TLDR: Dealer tells me the code is 2402 and Durametric returns 0024 with a description that matches the dealer.
I am getting screwey values when I look up actual values.
I try to clear codes and they don't seem to clear.
Has anyone else seen this?
I got CEL after about 1000 miles after replacing the catalytic converters myself. I pulled the codes with my Durametric and got:
0024 - DMTL Diagnosis module for tank leakage; pump drive rUpper limit exceeded
0010 - Intake camshaft driver
I took it to Porsche because I wrongly figured this was related to my cats. They pulled the codes and said the car was throwing 2402 and that the 0010 was in the system but had been there for a long time and was not relevant.
Now I had cleared that 0010 about a half dozen times so I thought it was fresh. It did not register at the time, but that means my reset did not work.
They said that it would cost $1,100 to replace the DM-TL and filter. It was very likely the right thing to do because they tried to actuate it and it would not spin.
As I have dropped about $14k on my Porsche habit in the last 30 months and my wife has had about enough of this, I paid the diagnostic fee and replace the parts myself (saving about $700).
Now my Durametric is still pulling the same codes plus a new one:
0014 which it says is No signal/communication
That code, like the 0024, is not in my copy of the Porsche 997 essential companion.
So when went to look at live values relevant to the DM-TL the Durametric was putting in some weird results. Percents or bars when the units should have been seconds.
Background: DM-TL is a complicated pump/sensor that determines that there are no leaks in the gas fume recycling system. It pulls low amps if there is a leak, so a high value means there is a problem with the pump or maybe a short.
I had to disconnect the passenger side door airbag as part of door panel removal, to replace the door lock mechanism. To check that I replaced the part correctly, I reconnected the battery and turned the ignition key, and got an "Airbag Failure" warning. The fault didn't clear even after disconnecting the battery, reconnecting the airbag and closing up the door panel, and reconnecting the battery. I confirmed the airbag was reconnected. I suspect that it may be a "latched' fault that can only be cleared via the Durametric tool - thoughts?
I'm unable to connect to the engine module on my '09 Cayenne with my new Durametric cable. I called tech support for an assist and was told that they are still working on coding to allow for connecting the 957 to the engine module. The Durametric website does list the MED9 for V6 as being available for reading/clearing codes. Wondering if anyone else has found a way to get this to work. I'm using version 6 software.
Hello. Great site. I recently purchased a 04 996 AE with 113K. My OBD showed random misfires. I checked the plugs and coils. Coils were cracked so I replaced all plugs and coils. The plug condition was consistent across all cylinders... ash gray color and no pitting or carbon or oily plugs. The misfire codes returned and I noticed the idle is rough but the engine pulls and is smooth off idle and through the rev range. I purchase the Durametric and I ran actual values (codes showed random misfires across most cylinders) the check engine light came on at one point but had gone away on it's one while waiting for my cable to arrive.
My problem is I have lots of data to look at but no way to understand or to translate it into actionable information. I am not even sure that I captured the right parameters for my misfire error codes. Is there a good place to look at what the actual values should be for a 996? or a link to any tutorials on how to read the data and translate that into a what to check or troubleshoot?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated and thoroughly utilized.
