    @Loren Any other suggestions besides driving it?  I've put 1k miles on it, and still can't get the o2 to be ready.  I called the dealer and they want $500 to get it ready -- seems a bit excessive.  My understanding is they can run some sort of short test to get it ready (but I may be wrong here.)


    As JFP said an intermittent sensor or other fault can cause the not ready state. .

    Hi Porsche community,


    I am no Porsche owner, but I do however have a Becker radio similar, or yet almost identical to the CR-210. Is there anyway you guys could help me find the code, if possible? I've looked all around for some information regarding it but I can't find anything.


    Becker Grand Prix


    Serial #: T5000421


    Try 4874

    Hi Loren,


    Hoping that you can help me, I just bought a 1997 Porsche Boxster and it didn't come with the manual or any of the factory paperwork from when the car was new.  It has a CDR-210 radio in it, Serial Number V5006399.  Please let me know if you're able to get the code for this unit.  Thank you for your help and for posting in this forum!


    Try 4309


  4. Fault code 0470
    CAN comfort in single-wire operation

    This fault was detected by the 'rear convenience system' control unit.


    Possible causes of fault
    • Open circuit in CAN comfort (high)
    • Open circuit in CAN comfort (low)


    Visual inspection: In the next troubleshooting section, please check first that the affected pins on the rear convenience system control unit plug connection are neither damaged nor corroded. The wiring and plugs of the affected components must also be checked for external damage and proper contact. Repair damaged or corroded
    pins if possible, otherwise replace affected pins. Repair or replace damaged wires.


    Sporadic faults: In the event of faults that occur sporadically, the wiring positions that are linked to moving parts on and in the vehicle must be checked for each system. Various statuses that can cause faults must be simulated with the help of the wiring diagram.
