    I would need the GPS autoradio code for my Porsche Boxster 3.2 here are the GPS descriptions

    Typ : IDIS 

    Model No : BE 2582 

    Serial No :Y 5007049

    EC : 104 



    Didn't read 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."

    Hi, I have a Boxster S 2003 with the radio locked due to dead battery. Hope someone can help me.

    Model BE 6612


    Serial # 25008219




    You did not read the Lost Radio Code FAQ...


    "CDR-23 (or later):
    These radios do not have a security code - that is, not that the user enters.
    These radios are security tested on the MOST (fiber optic bus) system to see if they are the "programmed" radio. The radios are programmed and recognized by the car’s DMEand can only be replaced by a shop with a PST2 or PIWIS. These radios will not request a code when battery power is disconnected."

    Hi Papagut, thank you so much for your hard work and research. I have exactly the same issues on my Cayenne S 2008 car.

    Lots of water in the front and back of the car and getting all the same fault messages.


    Unfortunately my case starts about 100miles away from home, so I had to manually override the P on the gearbox and drove the distance in about 5.5 hours.

    I confirm that the car drives in 1st/2nd gear, with all the GPS off and the parking assistance off. My headlights works and I believe also the break lights.


    After cleaning all the water from the matts and the carpet and the bottom of the car, I am now trying to investigate what is wrong. The first thing I checked was the corrosion of the split wires. I have only looked so far the driver's side and from the 3 splits I found 1 cable (the brown one) like in the photo below. There is no copper at all the two wires not even touching each other. Is it possible that the copper completely eroded and disappeared? OMG how is it possible that Porsche knows about this and they do not make a freaking recall? Poor engineering and definitely poor assembly work by the engineers.


    Anyways - my question is should I clean up the cable and make a new connection of the brown cable? Is it possible that they were never connected and just sitting there in the black electrical tape?


    Thank you for your help!




    Porsche does not use black plastic tape.

    Solid brown wires are usually grounds. Perhaps a third party radio installation?

    This thread on Rennlist discusses transplanting a 996 cluster into a 986:  https://rennlist.com/forums/boxster-and-boxster-s-986-forum/1144355-cluster-upgrade.html#post15876755


    It includes instructions for transferring mileage and VIN information between clusters.


    It been covered here also - and there is a bit more. If you want the oil pressure gauge to work then you need to run a wire from the sensor to the cluster.

    Not to mention the convertible top dash lights to work correctly.
