Throttle Body Adaptation Procedure
FOLLOW THIS PROCEDURE BEFORE STARTING VEHICLE
Porsche Boxster / 996 / 996 Turbo 2000 - 2004
After working on the car you may find that the idle "hunts" and the car goes into "Limp Mode". This procedure may be the fix that you are looking for
The ECU/DME needs to adapt to the throttle body position on the engine. Failure to follow this procedure can result in erratic idling and constant limp mode condition, causing the car to not accelerate correctly.
Install the ECU/DME along with the Immobilizer Box "If applicable" then turn ON the ignition switch (Fig.1) without cranking the engine. Leave the key in this position for about 45 seconds allowing the ECU/DME to register the position of the throttle body. After 45 seconds turn the ignition switch to the off position (Fig.2).
Proceed to start the vehicle and verify correct operation of accelerator pedal and normal acceleration. Using a scan tool, “if available” scan the ECU/DME and erase any trouble codes.
Performing the throttle body adaptation procedure is crucial for ensuring smooth and efficient operation of your Porsche Boxster, 996, or 996 Turbo from the year 2000 to 2004. Neglecting this procedure can lead to a lack of response from the accelerator pedal and reduced acceleration capabilities. In severe cases, it could even cause the car to go into limp mode, rendering it unable to perform at optimal levels. Investing a few minutes in this procedure will save you from the hassle and expense of dealing "chasing your tail" trying to diagnose a simple issue in the car which just needed a little computer adaptation. So, don't neglect this crucial step and keep your Porsche running at its best.
