Durametric Alarm Fault I32

I had a fault that was preventing the car from starting. Consequently, the radio will not work, neither will the starter motor. This shows up as a code 25 in the alarm section of Durametric. The code itself will look something like this:

Alarm I32

25:
W Lead

This W lead is fuse E1, which controls a large amount of electronics in the car that will cut out if the fuse is gone. Took me a lot of investigation and hassle to find it, hopefully this can help someone else out in the same situation.

Cornontherob - Thanks for posting this. I am having an issue with fuse E1. While driving I will get the airbag warn light and a rollover protection warning (I have a 996 cluster). Once the car is turned off it will not restart. I have replaced the E1 fuse twice now and it has blown twice after a short drive. Did you figure out what was causing your fault? TIA

Previous water damage? The immobilizer is very susceptible to water infiltration because of it's location under the seat. Sometimes you can open it up and clean it out with good results.

Thanks for the posting Disaster. I doubt water damage. The car is a garage queen and has never been driven or parked in the rain. That said, the first fault occurred as I was driving the car after washing it. I examined all of the components under the driver's seat and there is no evidence of an water or liquid ever being present.

After reading a ton of different postings the reoccurring theme was a wire being grounded. The only thing I have touched in the car in months is the radio. I took the radio out and cleaned things up a little. At one time I had a double din in there and went back to the stock CDR-220. I have left the radio out and put 100 miles on the car without any more issues. We'll see if that is it.

Again, thanks for the follow up.
