Have you checked the clutch start interlock microswitch? You can just unplug it and short the two wires together and try again.

The ignition switch is a fairly common fault, I believe. It's an easy fix and comparatively cheap - especially the corresponding Audi part.

 

Incidentally, RoW cars don't have a clutch interlock switch to the best of my knowledge and you appear to be in/from Belarus. Is your car a N. America spec?

the signal comes from the ignition switch. Signal is not coming from d33 pin ecu

Have you checked the wiring from pin D33 all the way to the start lock relay and make sure it's not broken or shorted?

You said "Directly starter will cranks and engine work." Sounds like if you hot wire the starter, the engine does fire up? If the DME is immobilizing the car, it will NOT turn on the fuel pump (in addition to NOT activating the start lock relay) so the engine should not have fired up. If true, it sounds like you have a break in wire from D33.

 

If the engine doesn't fire up even you make the starter turn, that sounds like the DME is immobilizing the car. Have you tried another key and is the immobilizer pill securely installed inside the key fob?

Have you opened up the key fob and check if the pill is secured? The next suspect would be the immobilizer ring signal pickup/circuit.

The car does belong to you, right?

 

If so, why don't you get whoever has the other key in Germany to DHL it to you. Then you move on to the more complex and expensive attempts to fix.

      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)?

      Welcome everyone to another installment highlighting the wonderful world of fragile Porsche parts!
       
      Have both 17" and 18" wheels and have recently lost the metal Center Cap logo medallion off of one wheel of each size.
      While removing the other center caps every remaining medallion fell right off in my hand.
      Metal medallion secured with a random dab of some type of adhesive.
       
      We have reached the end of lifespan of whatever adhesive the Center Cap supplier used to keep precious colored metal medallions stuck to those cheap plastic caps.
       
      Anyone know how to remove old adhesive?
      Anyone have any idea what adhesive to replace it with?
      Anyone know how much the Porsche/Piech families made selling replacement center caps last year?
       
      Remember when paying through the nose for your precious replacement Center Caps that the Porsche and Piech families are the 7th wealthiest oligarchs in the world per Wikipedia.

      In the last 2 weeks I bought my first Porsche - a 2001 Carrera 4 tiptronic coupe.
       
      1) Is it supposed to say Carrera 4 or Carrer 4S on the back?
       
      2) Is there a Porsche specific website where I can find a photo of the correct rear decklid badges for each 996 model? I tried Google for 2 hours last night.
       
      I simply trying to determine if my 01 Carrera 4 should read Carrera 4 or Carrera 4S on the back.
       
      Thank you!

      wires came out of my camshaft sensor and not sure what order they are

      Okay this is REALLY specific.
      The adjustable tension cable on the drivers side of my cabriolet disconnected at the top where it threads (8mm) into the top frame, not at the bottom where it snaps onto the ball.
      The is a larger diameter (10mm?) clean smooth painted hole where the cable needs to thread in, which leads to the presumption that there was a nut on the back side?
      Searched all over including removing driver's side rear 'door' panel and fishing around with a magnet but no loose nut found.
      Looks like getting to back side of this frame casting would entail a major disassembly of the cabriolet top frame?
       
      Also, what does this clip that goes over hydraulic cylinder do?
      Right side clips is in place about halfway down length of cylinder.
      Left side clip was down around the base of the shaft.
      Replacing it where there appears to be a shiny spot looks like it would interfere with the cabriolet top potentiometer arm.
      Right cable threaded into frame at top
      Right cable threaded into frame at top
      Missing cable location
      Smooth clean painted hole in top frame where 8mm cable end is supposed to thread in
      Left cable
      Left upper cable end with 8mm thread
      Clip question
