No start condition

I have a no start condition. It began as an intermitent problem, but now nothing. I do not hear the fuel pump prime. I just get a click when turning the ignition all the way to the right. Battery is fully charged. I'm thinking DME relay, possibly? I don't think it could be a fuse because of the intermitent aspect of it. Any other ideas on what it might be or where to look?

How do I replace the DME relay and where is it located (if it sounds like I'm on the right track)?

Thanks, Rob Gordon

You don't have a DME relay if you own a 930.

I actually have the same problem... happened again today. After feeling around behind the ignition swich the car started up. There is a large socket plug behind the dash just beyond the ignition that seemed to maybe do the trick for me... tough to say though. It also seems to only happen if I park the car on a slight incline. Although that could simply be a coincidence.

Alright, so much for my research...

The DME relays are common problem areas for the non-turbo cars... so your research was technically probably correct

Did you check all your grounds? Wires going to your starter? If your battery is good, and you get a click, there is a loose connection somewhere or something that needs cleaning up.
The ignition switch is certainly something to fiddle with as well, I would look at and inspect ground straps and battery terminals, and starter wiring as well. What car do you have? Have you tried a boost, if so, does that work?

Have you tried hitting your starter with a hammer? Sounds as though it may need to be replaced.

Yes, tomorrow I'm going to attack it with a ball-peen hammer...

It has always helped me in locating a faulty starter in the past. Never had to do it on a 911 yet though thankgoodness.
