Where would i start looking for a used 996 3.6 2003 model auto tiptronic gearbox ECU please? My car has been with the auto box repair centre for six weeks now and that is what they have traced the fault to be and without bothering to tell me have spent three weeks looking for......how hard can it be? Thanks in advance, John.

Try scrapyard breakers. Cant see a high probability of buying just the ECU as they will sell the complete tiptronic box.

Failing that, its your OPC I'd guess for a brand new one?

Thanks for the link. I rang that bloke and he doesn't have the one i need.It seems that the 2.7,3.2 and 3.4 engine sizes share the same gearbox ECU. It appears to have changed as the 3.6 uses a mercedes auto box.

Be careful - TCU are generally not swop and play - when you install a new one then it has to be coded correctly to the car and you have one opportunity as it cannot be recoded. I have tried this before with a second hand TCU and it has worked sometimes, and other times it has not.

It is very rare for the TCU to go wrong - I have seen it happen in the past but most tiptronic issues are related to 1) Incorrect levels in the box - which can be internal failure issue 2) Short in the wiring 3) Valve body issues.

If its the same as a 99/2000 model then you can download the wiring info from here ..

http://911uk.com/viewtopic.php?t=83491


I can only assume you mean they have measured a voltage .. ie 12 volts but dont have an output ..

They would need to load test the wires as a volt meter will not show any high resistance .. so for a feed you would put a light bulb accross it and similar for an earth to prove there is no resistance in the wiring .

For the rest then its just a continuity check or you could load up every wire if needed .

Thank you for the link. I have e mailed the garage the link and printed off the relevant sections to drop in to him tomorrow. Hopefully he will be more enlightened once he has perused it all.
