Hello
I have a tough question for any advanced Renntech users who have either stripped a 997 back to minimum wiring for racing, or fixed key issues
Can anyone help with my alarm issues.
Im building a 997 Track car- using a salvage chassis and the remaining parts from a rolled and written off cabriolet. Im think the key worked to unlock to car before i pulled it apart, but cant be certain as the engine was already out so there were limit functions to activate then.

Since moving the dashboard and whole wiring loom into race chassis, I can unlock the doors (yes, its the correct key, ive moved the doors over too), and the dashboard lights up to tell me the current odometer values. However the whole time from when the battery is connected, the alarm siren is going off (currently a clamp muffles that noise to save the neighbors). I can put the key in the barrel, rotate, and then still remove it (the Barrel lock appears to electrically be live, as it releases the key).

My guess if that the key has lost its coding for the alarm system, but I've tried following these instructions, https://rennlist.com/forums/997-foru...working-2.html,
with all combinations of button holding, pushing the hazard light switch, foot on brake, and key in/out barrel .... without any success in recoding the key.
Its worth noting the windows dont go through the usual drop down upon lifting the door latch sequence, im assuming this is due to the alarm running.

Any suggestions.
- my options seem to be getting the local agent to reprogram the key
- are there any other steps i should try to revive the key. I do only have 1 for the wrecked chassis's system

- a final last though is am i missing some switch that needs bridging from the cabriolet circuits to tell if the roof is down/up

Regards
Logan Marriott

      Hi,
       
      My 99 996 has started beeping twice when I press the key fob.
       
      It locks and then immediately unlocks.
       
      Also when opening the drivers side door, the window goes down when handle is pulled but goes straight back up when the handle is released. So the window obstructs the door closing.
       
      I have the following Durametric Alarm errors:
        11
      Voltage failure during alarm
      output
      Status: not present
      Frequency counter: 1 10
      Voltage failure at terminal 30
      with alarm system active
      Status: not present
      Frequency counter: 1 46
      Control locking synchronization

      Status: not present
      Frequency counter: 2 49
      K lead

      Status: not present
      Frequency counter: 1 21
      W lead (DME immobilizer)

      Status: not present
      Frequency counter: 1  
      What's the best way to proceed with fixing this?
       
      Thanks
      Ravi

      I have a 2002 Porsche 996 Cabrio and earlier this year the immobolizer under the seat got wet.   I purchased a used immobilizer, key for and ECU behind the rear seat.  All of the parts came from the some year model etc.  I put the parts in myself and everything worked great.   Now i need a new key fob or atleast I think i do.  The remote work sometimes and most of the time is doesn't.   When its not working I cant lock or unlock the car with the remote and the front trunk will not open with the fob or the switch inside the car.  When the fob works everthing works as it should in the car.  Do you think this is a key fob issue or something else?   Can i even get a key head programmed since these part are from a donor car?  I do have the vin of the donor car.
       
      Please help!

      Since I bought my Boxster the key-fob never worked, so my usual practice
      is to put my key into the cylinder and turn it to unlock.
       
      So this week, I did the procedure I've done hundreds of times, when after opening,
      the resistance I've always felt while turning the lock disappeared! I could now
      turn the key left and right, a full 180 degrees without any resistance. No movement
      in the door latch.
       
      And yet, when I roll the car down the driveway, the door locks do engage and so does the
      latch. Something mechanical must have slipped off the cylinder assembly, and I know I'll
      have to take the door apart to find out,
       
      I'm wondering if anyone has had the same situation and what they've done to fix it.
       
      Thanks1

      I purchased a 1999 Porsche Boxster 986 about a year ago and I'm having a few problems with the electrical accessories.  The top worked fine when I bought it, but now it won't work sometimes. The radio also turns on, then immediately off at startup, and it won' turn back on until a few minutes later either by itself, when I use turn signals, power windows, brake, or even just by itself. After the car is "warmed up", then it will stay on. Other things won't work right or not at all, such as the alarms for, ignition, door open, light switches, etc. The fuses are all fine, and I know the battery had been replaced right before I purchased it. I haven't checked the relay for the top, but I am about to do that now. I feel like there could be a single problem creating all these issues. Any help would be greatly helpful and appreciated!

      On my '08 GTS I have a few things happening.  First, when arming the alarm, the hazards flash four times instead o the customary two.  Is this an indication of a malfunction? 
      Second, the rear hatch will not fully close when pressing the button on the liftgate.  It will close when pressure is applied to the gate when closing. 
       
      Both of these happened after the dealer replaced the driver's door module and re-coded the car. 
       
      Any ideas on where to begin?  Other than going back to the dealer.
