Quick search led me to another forum. They also had a C127 fault code. There is a control module in the front trunk/bumper area that can fault and give weird issues. Have you recently polished the car? Trunk open OK with release and key? Can the code scanner reset codes?

Not sure which code scanner you have. Not all scanners can clear codes or its dependent on the model. Are you a PCA member? Maybe someone in the club has a Durametric Pro / Foxwell NT510/520 or similar setup that can try to clear the code for you. Definitely try to get the code cleared first and go from there. This is a known issue back to when the 997 was first sold.

911urge, im going to buy the foxwell nt510 and tackle this from that direction, I had the Schwaben Pro Scan for Porsche, it came damaged AND wont cancel codes so its going back


Rather than buy yet another OBD II scanner that cannot read or clear many Porsche codes, get the Durametric which is the best you can get for a Porsche short of the PIWIS system?
