Usually one jumps a car when it's battery can not provide enough to start the car...

It having sat for like 6 months without being driven might have something to do with that.

The first 1.5 months before I even took it in were supply issues as I didn't want to drop off the car until they had the new module.

Then the Indy couldn't get the new module to work so they took it to the Porsche dealer to try. PD fucked around and didn't get to it for a week then they decided the new module was bad and needed to be replaced. The following week they still hadn't ordered the replacement. The following week they said they ordered the replacement. The following week they said they hadn't ordered it. The following week they said it would be there Monday. The following week they said it would be there the next day. Then it finally really did show up and they apparently had to replace the keys after all. Then it got back to the Indy and they had another day of stuff to do which they took 2 for and then didn't let me know it was finally ready...

Yay! I actually finally have the 996 back in my possession!

Apparently this is why the passenger tailpipe looked like it was about to fall off when I dropped it off :shock:

Well the upside is that while I had to pay for new keys (which I was trying to avoid by being proactive), they apparently didn't charge me for the new security module... 8-)
