GuestHello folks I'm new in the forum and I have read your posts but haven't found the answer, maybe you can help me. I recently own a 2001 Porsche 996 turbo tiptronic and the instrument cluster indicates a failure: "ONBOARD COMPUTER ERROR". The display in the instrument cluster doesn't indicate temperature, range of the car or turbo boost pressure and all those kind of average measures.My mechanic tells me that I should change all the instrument cluster but I don't think there is the problem since all other things such as low gas level alert, no fastened seat belt and others are OK. Have anyone had this same situation may when havong replacing the battery or know what would I have to repair or change ?A permanent signal of "ON BOARD COMPUTER ERROR" makes me crazy. Thanks EDUARDO ROZOerozoferrero@yahoo.com.co

Guesthi there, I called a Porsche dealer, and he confirmed that radio codes are no longer needed for modern (post 2003?) cars, my 2011 987 included. He said the radio is now programmed to the specific car, so stealing the radio is useless as it wont work in another car. He said its £40 for a code for an older Porsche though! Battery tip: insulate the lead connectors with a cloth or bag once removed from the battery , to prevent short circuits. Also remove -ve before +ve to remove risk of accidentally frying the cars electrics by touching the body with the +ve. Julian
Guesthi if anyone could help it would be greatly appreciatedI have a 987 and had it shipped ,they disconnected the battery and now psm and abs remains on constantly ,i have reset it with a Autel ds708 but it keeps coming back a few minutes later.Any ideas please
