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,

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

It is a common problem for the seals in the oil cooler to leak and allow water into the oil. I'd check this first, there should be a procedure online somewhere. Try googling "clarks garage"

My roof just stopped working this morning. My owners manual says that on the left rear side, in the trunk, when you pull back the carpeting there is a place for a crank. You use the spark plug wrench that came with the tool kit, although it is not with my car.

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.
