On 2 of the other doors, sometimes the outer door handles remain in the open position and do not retract after opening the door, often leading to the door reopening when you go to close it. If you remove the 8 Torx screws that hold the cover on the translucent part of the mechanism, the unit comes apart nicely. On 2 of the other doors, sometimes the outer door handles remain in the open position and do not retract after opening the door, often leading to the door reopening when you go to close it. My right rear door does not open at times from the inside or outside. I have been made aware by 2 Porsche dealerships that they have both had other customers with similar or related conditions.
Hi Florida2002m3, Just wondering if you have found a solution to the mechanical door issue that you were having? Anyone know what part I need, and if so. I did notice that there was no spring action, I read in another post that there was an issue with a broken spring, is the doohickey supposed to spring back to the central location? On both of my doors, the only solder that had a tiny hairline crack in it was the circuit that leads to the micro switches. This is a huge safety concern. Like most online communities, there are costs involved to maintain a site like this - so we encourage our members to donate. I have a 04 Turbo May 03 - 27K - since new. Became stuck on the road.
The locks also failed and could not put the car in gear to tow. On both of my doors, the only solder that had a tiny hairline crack in it was the circuit that leads to the micro switches. I found the problem after replacing a bad regulator and when I bumped the door lock wiring harness, the window jumped up and down. The service allows to compare and analyze statistics for reported problems, complaints, recalls for various manufacturers. . I have an '03 S In any event, I had purchased a spare from someone on the 986 board. It may just be my luck, the car runs great with no more problems except squeaks and rattles - that do drive me crazy the other cars I had or currently owned.
Disconnecting the battery for 15 minutes seemed to solve it. Over the weekend, I pulled the door panel not a bad job and accessed the lock mechanism. The dealership is of no help. Jebus - never mind - I know exactly what the problem is - I forgot to connect the bowden cable to the friggin handle! In addition, sometimes the rear hatch does not unlock at times. This is very serious and has the potential to lead to a very dangerous situation. I can't get to the torx screws on the bottom of the door since the window is not in the full up position. All donations go to the costs operating and maintaining this site.
If so, it sounds like a pita to get it back together. So every time the door is slammed and the wire wiggles, it torques the joints. This is very serious and has the potential to lead to a very dangerous situation. But it the adjustment process I can't fool the door into thinking it is closed so the window goes all the way up and stays. Just looked at the parts diagram and the light went off.
The first door took me the better part of an hour to figure it all out. But by the time I did the second door, i was done in less than 30 minutes. Is there a separate microswitch for the door locks? Ive had it with this thing and its electrical problems. But by the time I did the second door, i was done in less than 30 minutes. Has been in the shop at least 25 to 30 times in the 20mos I've owned it. So they recharged it with dye and it's been fine ever since.
I tried to fix the fuses to what they should be, in the past the car used had fuses too big for what the chart called for, so for example i replaced a 30 for a 10 if a 10 was the one needed etc. It is a hefty price to fix if. Big benefit to him as well as the rest of us. The vehicle has been to the shop 4 times for repair and porshe has been unable to fix it. I decided to see what really happens. An easy way to diagnose this issue is to bend the wires at the harness back and forth.
What else needs to be done to fool the door and get the window up? Here are some of the features available - once you register at RennTech. A good job by a local specialist. The mechanic showed me the proof that they were never placed on the car. My right rear door does not open at times from the inside or outside. Mine has been in the shop just as much and probably more. I thought at first it was bad contacts, but it wasn't.
