Question about 1985 Porsche 944

1 Answer

I hit a fence post with my ?85 944. The crash pushed the bumper up under the light. The next morning I heard a clicking sound and the battery was dead. I opened hood and removed fuse to the light retractor as I suspected the light were trying to close all night but were jammed open. Installed new battery. Car was still drivable and it ran well for exactly a month. One night I was driving and the radio started going on and off. Obvious electrical issue. I pulled over to talk with my friend for a few minutes and left car idling. It seemed to have no problems and was idling smoothly. The radio came back on. As I started to pull away the radio started cutting out and the car started being very jerky and sluggish like the fuel line was clogged. The car made it 40 feet and died. Car would not start. Sometimes dash lights would come on when trying to start it sometimes no light, no power. Battery is still good. Went back a few days later and it was still doing the same thing. Pushed it, popped the clutch and it ran well for 3 miles until I came to a light and did the sputtering and died. Had it towed and came back a few days later. Nothing happens when I turn key. No lights nothing. Can you give me some insight into what might be the problem? Thanks. ?Christopher Lynch cjlynch@hotmail.com

It may be a computer board problem. The board sometimes cracks causing intermitent random faults.

How long does it take to charge battery in solar fence charger?


    1. A solar powered electric fence energizer usually contains a battery for energy storage. The solar panel collects the energy from the sun and charges the battery. Lead acid batteries, which are used in solar fence chargers, typically last around 3 years, or around 1,000 days of charging.

2010 G37 - battery was dead - jumped it off and drove it for twenty minutes. Next morning it wouldn't start and now it wont stop clicking (like a relay). Any suggestions?


if the battery goes dead or low it must be recharged with a charger, driving the car will not recharge it properly. The alternator is only meant to maintain the battery, not recharge it. Get the battery recharged and verified and then try again.

Have you tried jumping the car yet? What have you tried so far? I would get someone to jump it real quick. Theres other ways to see if battery is dead but a quick way is to get a jump then tell us what happens. Good luck-

check the battery in key, check wiring harness to relays behind dash. I think you have a bad relay or connection or button on your key is sticking. Worst case is having shop diagnose system so you can repair.

Front bumper cover is broken, no lights along bottom.


Under the bumper cover is a fiberglass bumper. It could be broken or your bumper mounts could be bent on that side. It is best to remove the screws (on the side of the wheel well) and 10mm bolts holding the bumper cover, and locate the two frontal bolts in each bracket. There are also some plastic push pin nuts in various spots too. Don't try to get the push pins under the headlights, they will come with when the bumper is removed.
