  1. Try 9039
  2. Try 7340
  3. Porsche stopped printing wiring diagrams in 2006 (as well as service manuals). This information is only available in PIWIS diagnostic systems. Even then some items like wiring diagrams don't print well.
  4. Try 4803
  5. You might try salvage yards for the 996 then.
  6. Is your issue the display? If so, have a look here (only $59.99): http://shop.914rubber.com/996-986-LCD-Display-unit-wth-connectors-replacement-kit-996986LCD.htm?categoryId=-1
  7. Try 6461
  8. According to Porsche (for your 1997 Boxster) only these part numbers will work: 996-653-101-03 EFR 996-653-101-CX EFR
  9. Try 1620
  10. From the Lost Radio Code FAQ... "Can you give me a code for my PCM? These units are manufactured jointly by Siemens and Becker, and the only place where you can get the codes required is from the dealer/OPC. The PCM’s require two codes, the ICS/Siemens code and a Becker code. The ICS is the first code requested. Sorry, the only place you can get a PCM code is from a dealer/OPC."
  11. The burnt resistor is not normal. You could try replacing just that - but you may need a new board.
  12. Try 9891
  13. Short circuit to B+ You need no shorts in the alarm, door locks, and windows for them all to work - and you do have a fault. They all run through the same control unit. You also need a good battery.
  14. Really? I gave that to you last year. Perhaps you should write it down this time.
