Hi guys. My car wont crank and i dont know why.

On the start lock relay there is no permission signal from the ECU. Directly starter will cranks and engine work.

I have fault code on bracke switch, but brake light work. And driver seat airbag.

Please help. Sory for my English.

Thanks, Kirill

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?

      For anyone wanting to know how to remove the front and rear seats as well as the front driver/passenger seatbelts... this is the video for you! 😎 It was fun trying to figure out how to do this. Hopefully this helps anyone trying this. I would say removing the seats is 2/10 for difficulty, the side panels maybe 7/10 and then ultimately the seatbelts themselves a solid 5/10. Hope this helps! Should be more or less the same for the 996 and 997.

      I have a 2003 996 carrera cabrio. Recently it has developed a rattle or possibly a warning buzzer at exactly 60 mph. Could this be related to the limiter setting? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance

      My 1999 911 Carrera started smoking at a streetlight. Very smelly blue smoke was coming from under the engine cover. I pulled over and popped the cover. Blue smoke was coming from somewhere under the engine (not the exhaust). The engine stopped very suddenly.
       
      We don't have a local Porsche dealer, but the Subaru dealer owns a bunch of 911s and he has a couple Porsche mechanics. I had it towed there.
       
      The C1 fuse ("Engine Electronics") was blown. They replaced it, but as soon as they turned the key, the "cam adjuster wiring harness" (I do not know what this is) began to smoke, and the fuse blew again.
       
      They disconnected the cam adjuster wiring harness (I don't know what this means, and neither did the service advisor), and the fuse stayed intact, and they got the car started. They were able to drive it out to the parking lot with no problems.
       
      They said I need a new cam adjuster wiring harness (again, no idea what this is), and this would require an engine out repair, which they could not do. They estimated this work at $5,000 to $6,000.

      Additionally, they did not know how drivable the car was with a disconnected cam adjuster wiring harness.
       
      So ... how bad is this?  (Service report image attached.)

      To all 996 owners with PSE, especially those with a 4S. 
       
      I think my 996 C4S exhaust behaves oddly. I think it's a fault but you might tell me it's normal behaviour. The problem is that I've always had this 'fault' on my car so I don't know if it's a fault or intentional behaviour. If you have the same car, perhaps you can shed some light on this.
       
      When I start it, it's noisy and sounds great. It quiets down as it runs for the first 5 mins. 
       
      I have the PSE system and when I press the button you can audibly hear the exhaust note change - quieter when on and louder when off. Default is off so loud.
       
      Here's the rub. Up to around 1500rpm it's got a good noise then it fades out to the point where it's so quiet it's like driving my partners Yaris. If I keep accelerating, when I get to around 3500rpm the exhaust suddenly gets loud again. I mean it's immediate - like someones flipping a switched marked loud. It sounds great. 
      It happens in 2nd and 3rd gears most noticeably and the PSE is in the 'off' position. If I have the PSE button on, then it's just quiet all the time and that works fine.
       
      So why the silent spot?

      I did read somewhere that German market cars might have had a system that turns on and off the PSE at certain speeds to prevent people driving round residential streets with a loud exhaust but information is thin and I don't think I was ever on UK cars. 
       
      I have also had a small go at checking vacuum pressure at idle on both sides of the Y piece in the engine bay but both hold good pressure. One side has only a microscopic leak but not enough to cause this kind of issue.

      Hi everyone, I just got a set of gauges for a 2005 996. I'm building a simulator for PC and would like to wire the gauges to work with racing games. I am in need of the wiring diagrams for the cluster. If anyone has a picture or manual that can help me out it would be great! Looking for inputs, power, signal.
