PostPosted: Mon Oct 16, 2017 7:55 am    Post subject: Ignition barrel - 996 Turbo and also a thank you! Reply with quote

Morning all,

So, parked up in Central London after some shopping, we return to the car late afternoon. Key in, turns once for ignition and then key turns rest of the way with no resistance whatsoever. It just turns round in the barrel. Because the ignition is on, battery eventually goes whilst waiting for recovery to my indy. Waited for the van, then had to wait for the low loader as he couldn't get it started. Looks like new barrel, not sure about the switch? Annoying lol.


The thank you is for the bloke that walked past us and said his car was around the corner and do we need any help? I said thanks but the recovery guy was here. He drove past a couple of mins later and I gave him a thumbs up. He was in a silver Cayman (718 I think but it was dark lol!) So thanks to him if he's on the forum!

The ignition switch/barrel has been getting a bit fiddly in the last few weeks on my 996 Turbo also, sticks a bit when I take the key out. I mentioned it to the technician at the Brooklands open day on saturday, and he pointed out that my steering lock is not working, which I hadn’t previously noticed. Waiting for the report to come through at the moment with a quote for them to fix, but will have a read of the “ how to” and see if that covers the steering lock too.

The steering lock doesnt work on mine either, just wondering if thats because of the switch problem too or a complete lock and barrel assy required!

Nice!

Hmmm, my steering lock hasn't worked for ages but doesn't seem linked to the ignition...

How about this for a bargain, I might just do mine as a preventative measure.
