2008 - 911(997) Carrera S -PDK - No traction

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.


Really need an expert's help, to understand what's wrong with this car.


Last february, on a regular drive the car suddenly lost traction. Stopped the car, waited a few minutes and then was able to drive the car to safe place.


Since then, no traction at all. Car starts normal, allow to engage Drive, you press accelerator and nothing, car won't move.


Change the fluid and filter for PDK, thinking it would solve the issue but nothing.


Asked a friend that has a Launch Diagnose machine, to diagnose the car.


A couple of communication issues, due to a dead battery that were solved immediately, but one error remained:


- P1872: Data Record for Hydraulics Calibration is invalid


Is it possible that the car won't run, beacuse of this calibration config?


Meanwhile, got a Piwis 3 and a VCX SE interface, which connect's to the car, but won't read anything... I believe it might be this software "version" that is corrupted, and I'll try to find a better one.


Does anyone have an idea on what mught be the issue, and a possible solution?
