Question about 1999 Porsche 911 Carrera

Trouble light for engine compartment lid is lit when lid is shut

I have a 1999 911 cabriolet. The trouble light for the engine compartment lid on the dash is often on after the car is started and blocks opening and closing the convertible top. The lid is fully shut. Is there a sensor that I can fix or could it be the spoiler not being seated properly?

Why did the check engine and tcl"off"lights come on after cleaning the engine and engine compartment?


The traction control system uses the computer to work by changing engine speed.
You may have gotten water inside one of the wiring connectors or harness.
You would need to have the computer scanned for trouble codes to know what to test.

TCS AND ENGINE LIT ON DASHBOARD


Any time the check engine light is on the traction control light will also be on. The traction control is disabled when there is a problem with engine management. Your best bet is to scan the engine computer for trouble codes, once you have those post them he and we'll see if we can't get you problem solved.

Car will run, but will not respond when u give it gas, in a fast manner .it shuts off. i have put a new fuel fillter on. whats should i do next


Jason: It would appear to be a timing fault...However, your car is On Board Diagnostic I (OBDI) and trouble codes that are stored can not be scanned...Is the trouble light on the dash lit? If a trouble code is stored...In the lower left passenger foot well is a blue connector...Under the carpet...Pull it down and short the two pins with a paper clip...Turn the ignition to on but don't start the engine...The light on the dash will blink out a two digit code...ie...4 Long...And 1 short=Code 41...I'll need that code to diagnose the fault...Lastly; do you have a multimeter? send a comment please...Guru...saailer

Where is the fuse for the clock and radio on a audi 80 cabriolet?


Fuse and relay box is under the bonnet, right rear of the engine compartment. Unclasp the lid at the front and hinge up, you will find the fuse is number 4 from the right side of the car. The layout of the fuse box should be on the lid.

Run into PepBoys, autozone or similar big auto parts stores & most will scan for trouble codes free of charge. Write down the code(s) they retrieve and if they can't tell you right then & there what's wrong, get back to us & we'll help.
