The people who worked on this car before I had it only had a factory manual, and didn't even have a code reader tool to read out the codes. So, unless you really know what you're talking about and doing on these cars (like the folks at Callas Rennsport do), then yes, you're kindof destined to continue to hear the alarms on them. I've talked to the folks at Quail when there was a big 959 gathering last year, and it's par for the course. I'm quite confident that Bill Gates has heard that big loud alarm in his car before. It's the Porsche equivalent of the blue screen of death!
