    Hood latch revisited - Is my car possessed?

    997S, built in Feb 05, have already replaced the hood latch after the dreaded "System Fault" appeared after washing the car AND opening the trunk to dry off the channels. Have washed the car several times since having the hood latch replaced (all w/o opening the trunk) with no problems until today. After washing the car and drying it (and NOT opening the trunk), the trunk popped open by itself. I said WTF and went over to relatch it, to just watch it pop open again and again. I closed it again and it's held for about 15 minutes (I'm afraid to go back out to the garage...) I think my car is possessed.

    I just figured it out - I went over 2000 miles yesterday and was feeling pretty celebratory - the P-car has brought me back to earth again...

    Re: Hood latch revisited - Is my car possessed?

    Thats good news man... I just went over 2k miles too although no problems to report.

    How did you fix it?

    Have you been drinking grandpa's cough medicine? Just kidding. Congratulations on passing 2K.

    Re: Hood latch revisited - Is my car possessed?

    Same report. 2k and no more system fault problems after initial fix.

    Re: Hood latch revisited - Is my car possessed?

    Well, it's held for 36 hours so far so maybe it's dried out. I'm taking it in on Fri to have the oil changed and I've told the service writer to make note of the problem but I don't want them messing with it unless it starts up again and won't stay closed.

    Alan - no, no more of grandpa's cough medicine, though grandmas medicinal herbs may be to fault...

    Re: Hood latch revisited - Is my car possessed?

    Why an oil change so soon? After only 2k miles? Am I missing something
