    987/997 Key fob sensitivity fix

    Folks,
    there is now a dealer fix (under warranty) for the poorly designed key for the 987/997. The fix makes the unlock/lock button harder to press, thus preventing it unlocking the car in your pocket, especially if you bend down to pick up a bag or something else.

    I have found that it works well and can report no 'mystery' unlocking since.

    On another note, the tech bullitin for the 2100 rpm rattle has fixed the problem with only the very slightest rattle heard for maybe the first 30 seconds of driving.

    Regards,

    JZ

    Wonder whether its the same fix as that posted in the 'articles' section at www.caymnaclub.net ? - ie, file down the rubber studs on the back of the keys so you have to depress the push buttons further to make contact with the circuit board.

    So they actually modify the KEY? That's interesting, I'd definitely want to talk to my dealership about this!

    Re: 987/997 Key fob sensitivity fix

    Yes, my key actually needs to be fixed for this. What a piece of crap. It even looks cheap! For the amount of money I spent on this car, VOLKSWAGENS have better quality and better looking keys!!!

    That's true, the new keys look cheap

    The TSB for this issue says that the time delay before the buttons can work can be increased with a PIWIS.

    Does anyone know if this fix is available in North America? I dropped by PFAFF today, and apparently they don't have the fix for it yet!
