I repaired it my self thanks. :)

The starter switch must be at fault as this part has the zero ignition and start mechanism itstilled in side of it and the spring load has gone faulty due to ware and tare. so I removed it and replaced with a new one and now everything works as normal.

After replacing the battery on my Porsche Carrera 2000, I entered the wrong numbers a couple of times on the radio screen asking me to enter 4 digits and then the screen went on a WAIT signal. Now that I...


Yes - there is a solution here.

The problem here is that you must leave continuous power to the radio until the WAIT period is over. Any interruption to the power causes the countdown or wait period to start all over again. The secret is to ensure the key is turned in the ignition to accessories point I or the first point on the ignition that activates power to the radio.

If the key is not turned in the ignition as outlined, the radio will automatically shut off after one hour which is a power saving feature (which is great) but it also has a side effect in this case of shutting off the radio before the time limit has been reached!!

Obviously - as you must leave the key turned in the ignition during the wait period (which may be up to 4 hours) please ensure the vehicle is parked in a safe location and well away from any opportunistic thief.!!

Hope it helps or for anyone reading this in a similar situation - this information applies to many vehicles and radio types as many manufacturers have a similar security feature.

Thanks for using FixYa.

1999 Porsche Carrera the radio turns on and there is no sound from speakers. What do I do to get the sound to come on.


if the radio powers on make sure it is set to an fm station by pushing the S button. then turn the knob on the left to turn the volume up. if there is still no sound it is most likely a radio gone bad or the amp has gone bad.
