2001 996 power seat malfunctions


Vehicle Information: Model: 996; Year: 2001; Body Type: Cabriolet; Total Mileage: 33,000;

Joel, I saw the inquiry about power seat troubles and I have experienced the same thing, only it sometimes is seat and sometimes power top, door locks and on occasion, other things related to the ignition key. I am told this is a factor of the electronic linkage with the key, which apparently must be programmed in some way. One of my keys works perfectly, one causes the problems mentioned. Attempts to fix this have thus far failed. Porsche wants me to buy a new key and if that fails, then replace whatever electronic stuff controls this. Not liking the "hunt and test" methodology, I have just lived with the better key. Hope this helps.
