SOURCE: 1985.5 PORSCHE 944 digital clock (changing time)

There are three buttons, let's call them 1, 2, and 3, from left to right.


Clock
Time setting

A. 12 AM, PM or 24.00 h
With the clock in the time readout mode, keep
button (2) depressed for 4 seconds -12 AM, PM
or 24.00 flashing. After pushing button (1), either
a 12-hour (AM + PM) or a 24-hour setting
program can be selected. If you only want to
change the display mode, push button (3). The
clock then returns to its normal timekeeping
function.

B. Hours
Push button (2) a second time - hour display
flashes. Set hour by pushing button (1). After
pushing button (3)*, the clock returns to the time
readout mode with new hour setting.

C. Minutes
Push button (2) once more - minute display
flashes. Set minute by pushing button (1). Upon
pushing button (3)*, the clock is started -
accurate to within 1 second.

Stop watch function
The stop watch can only be set in motion if the
clock is in its normal timekeeping mode and not
during setting operations.
A. Push button (3) - 00:00 display appears;
B. Push button (1) - stop watch is on;
C. Push button (1) a second time - watch stops.
(Additional times can be added by pushing button
(1) again - stop watch keeps running. Push button
(1) once more to stop timing.)
D. Push button (2) - 00:00 display appears;
E. Push button (3) - normal timekeeping mode.

If button (3) is pushed during operation A and
B, the setting procedure must be restarted
(push button (2)). icon_biggrin.gif

SOURCE: 1986 Porsche 944. Instruments not working

Sounds like a possible fuse problem. Have you checked your fuses yet. If not look in your owners manual to see which fuse(s) control your instrument panel, or anything else you are having trouble with. Keep in mind, if a short did occur for some reason, more than one fuse may be blown. When i accidental crossed two door lock wires, i blew 6 fuses, some of which were not even related to the wires i crossed. Hope this helps

Oil pressure problem


in a shop we ignore the dash gauges and use REAL gauges.
we attach a real gauge to the sender port. on engine block.
and read the true pressure.
the lamp on most cars go on at 3 to 5psi.
this is catastrophic failure. that low.

my guess, is you let oil drop and you wrecked bearings.
but let the real gauge prove that , dont guess.

check the connections at the oil pressure sending unit.
It is on the right lower side of the engine block, two wires coming of of it. Make sure the nuts holding the connectors on it are tight,

89 C4 911 gauges reading incorrectly?


These cars are funky and this is normal...gauges on all of the earlier cars are for general reference...checking the oil level manually while the car is running and warmed up is the most proper way to do this...generally speaking, your pressure should drop as the car warms up, but still reach 5 bar on full accelleration (928's have the same gauge). The oil level gauge will actually increase as the car warms up...the difference can be dramatic.

Porsche 944 S2 inaccurate petrol gauge reading and oil level warning light


This is not a known solution, but in general these cars suffer from voltage and current drops on electrical connections due to corrosion on contact surfaces. I cannot remember the number of times I have read about electrical problems on these cars, and the problem was usually solved by cleaning the electrical contacts or replacing a relay going bad (BTW, this car does use a lot of relays however I doubt there is one in the fuel gauge circuit).

Also, I have a spare gauge cluster for the 944 and when I look at it, there are some resistors on the "printed circuit" piece. If one of those were to lose tolerance, or burn open, it would no doubt have an effect on the accuracy of the circuit. I would check out that circuitry and test the resistor values as a last resort -- it is not likely the gauge itself if it is working at all. However, before doing that I would clean the electrical contacts thoroughly. I have not tried to gain access to the wiring harnesses for the gauge cluster while it is in the car, but I doubt it is possible. So, if you have exhausted all other ideas go to the Clark's Garage site for instructions on how to remove the dash, and just follow the portion that applies to removing the gauge cluster. Go to the local electronics hobbyist store, or online, and obtain a good contact cleaner and clean all of the electrical contacts while also looking for loose or broken wires. NOTE: Be careful and gentle dealing with the plastic connectors on these cars as they tend to be brittle and little tabs break off easily if man-handled. Go slow, be in the right frame of mind and use good lighting so that you can see what you are doing.

Oil pressure problem


Check the oil level.....if good. find or buy a cheap mechanical oil press gauge and check using that. porches are netorious for electrical issues. if it reads ok.....somethings still bad and get it fixed.
