Are you kidding Ernie!? I've been off the forums for 4 years (kids n such) and seeing this thread at the top made it feel like I never left.

That said, the 951 just went to an autocross and the 944 is about to get new clutch master and slave cylinder.

I cleaned the injectors on both cars and WOW, the 944 needed it.

If anyone needs injectors serviced by an injector specialist that also owns a couple 944s, I'm your guy!

Egads, not another electrical gremlin?!
I've been trying to sort out a passenger window switch problem for what feels like for ever and yesterday I thought I'd try pressing both the D side and P side switches at the same time...and it worked! What's up with that???

It sounds like the insides of one of the switches has been reversed, you can carefully disassemble them, clean the contacts, and reassemble - but reverse the rocker pieces on one of the switches that activates the passengers side window and try using a single switch - that might just be the issue.

This is great -- much appreciated. Can you give me a few more details? I'm just having trouble trying to see how to reverse them.

Just received my new crimp tool kit in order to perform factory-style crimps on various electrical connectors.



I also replaced the throttle position sensor (Junior Power Timer pins) connector (forgot to take pics...).

Check out this video, it shows the insides of the switches. Either A) your switches are dirty or B) one is reversed. It is possible someone reversed the insides of one of the switches at some point, but not for sure. If your driver's side window works well disassemble that FIRST and take pictures and note the directions the insides are installed. Then replicate that when reassembling both of the other switches and as long as everything is clean that should work!

Well, like the good scientist I'm not I replicated the experiment in hopes of getting similar results but had no luck.
Next I'll follow ERAU944's advice and tear 'em open to see what gives.

As I wondered, it was a coincidence. Time to take the switches apart for cleaning.

Since I just received the car, gave it a good look over and started chasing electrical issues with the lights. Replaced all fuses and cleaned up the fuse block with sand paper and acetone

Brake lights now work.

Stuck on the right front turn signal.... blinks, but no parking light/on function. Left side works

I got an open barrel crimp tool like that. Now I just need to find some sources for quality open barrel terminals. Any recommendations?

Made a DME Test connector from a junked 944 DME. I took the DME apart and desoldered the pin connections. Then I printed the numbers on copy paper, cut them out, and taped them on with Gorilla tape.

Waiting a couple of weeks for an evaporator ice protection switch to come in from the fatherland.

John, probably overkill as you could just as easily make the alligator clips with a small spade connector on one end. But this is easier to read the numbers of the terminals and I guess I just like fooling around with small electrical wiring projects.
