HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Mon Jul 08, 2013 3:56 pm by Admin


For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.
The purpose of this sticky is to explain the "Advanced Search" function because it is much more powerful and is the best choice when researching information.

When you log on to the site a list of options is shown in a line at the top of the page. One option is labelled "Search", use this option (NOT the search box lower down on the right).

After you click on the upper search option, a drop down box appears. At the bottom of this box is a radio button marked "Advanced …

Turn signal problem.

Turn signal problem.

Post  fliermike45 on Wed Nov 16, 2011 4:02 pm

I just hooked up my front lights after re-fitting the nose. First problem was a blown fuse in the Left Side park circuit. Parking light circuit(s) work OK from the turn signal lever and from sidelight switch.

Now I can't get either left or right turn signals to work with the Ignition on. Fuses all checked.

Question is: What circuit was disturbed/broken when taking out the 944 engine and computer? Any thoughts and ideas would be welcome, thanks.

Problem solved.

Problem solved......After carefully tracing through the wiring schematic I found that the lines to the bulbs pass through the Hazard Switch.

I had removed the Clock panel that also holds the Hazard Switch.......Duh!

while you're messing with it, how hard would it be to wire the turn signals into the ignition such that they only work when the engine's running?

I drained my battery twice by accidentally leaving the turn signal stalk in the "on" position when parking my car, which means the turn signal light stays on after I parked and walked away...doh!

That's done with 12 Volts from key switch (P) in the "Off" position. It's a green EDIT...oops NO IT IS A GREY wire that powers the Right or Left turn signal (non-flashing) when car is parked (turned off) and the switch stalk remains either or Up or Down.

You can probably just snip and tape the green EDIT: GREY (not green) wire.

Green wire

Post  fliermike45 on Wed Nov 16, 2011 7:34 pm

Just checked the schematic, I confirm that it's the green wire.

And before anyone asks...it’s a German vehicle traffic regulation…their version of parking lights can also operate on either the left or the right side of the car only.

It’s used when parking on dark narrow streets to provide a ‘parked-vehicle’ warning to approaching drivers while using only half the battery power of all 4 parking lights because the curb side lights are not lit.

Parking lights

Post  fliermike45 on Thu Nov 17, 2011 7:51 am

Confirming what was said earlier, yes if you put the turn signal on left or right with the ignition and main light switch both off you get the appropriate side lights ALSO when you open the driver's door the gong (chime) sounds off to warn you.

My door chime always goes off when I open the door. Kind of annoying, actually.

It goes off with the key out and the turn stalk in the correct position? I had that problem. It was fixed by twisting the assembly that attaches to the steering rack down on the left, slightly. The turn signal was apparently getting impinged.

Huh. I was just getting ready to pull the chime itself out. I'll try your method first.

Hi all, I know it's been a while, but I don't see a green wire coming from the ignition cylinder. But there is a green wire (and a red wire) coming from a small white plastic plug that looks like it's plugged into the steering wheel side of the ignition cylinder, is this the green wire to cut?

GREY WIRE not green

Post  944convert on Tue Nov 19, 2013 12:34 pm

I just looked at the switch then the schematic...my bad...GR stands for grey...cut the GREY wire.

That 2 wire white plastic plug on the mounting bracket will supply +12 volts on the GREEN wire whenever the key is turned all the way off but not yet removed...maybe to allow the radio to stay on.

Well I finally got around to doing this. It took only a couple minutes and now no more of that annoying "feechure!"
