    Remote Key

    Is it possible to desensitize the remote key fob by shortneing the distance or at least lengthen the on delay for the trunk release? My dealer says no but my 996tt was a lot more user friendly.

    My solution was to place a small very thin metal strip across the trunk button...then over that metal piece, a strip of tape clued to plastic on each side of trunk button securing the metal strip. Had to do something, the button was just too sensitive on the trunk lid I seldom used. The taped metal piece has worked fine now for past 8 months.

    Not sure what year your 997 is but the dealer can program the delay to be longer. There's a TSB out on this - dated 10/4/06 number 9662. Also, someone on this board or another showed detailed picture on how to trim a piece of rubber inside the key that fixes this. Do a search and you may find it or someone who remembers may give you a link.

    There is also something from SmartTop that is mostly for cabrios but also can be had for the coupes, that lengthens the release time for the trunk. It's programmable by the owner in a couple minutes. It works well for me. A MUST HAVE for any cabriolet owners.
