Is it possible to retrofit a GEN2 Turbo Front End and Rear End onto a GEN1 Cayenne Turbo?
Loren, I am so stumped. I was able to splice the 996 TT rear wire harness and connect it following your diagram to the new 997.2 led tails. At first I was surpised it was so easy. Everything worked the turn signal backup light rear fog light night light brake signal I was a happy camper. What I realized later is that when the night lights turns on it also turns on the rear turn signals at the same time. I have a feeling it has to be the led tail lights doing it, as they are only 6 wires coming from the wire harness into the led tail light. Not sure how to proceed at this point. I was thinking maybe inside the led module of the tail light there might be two grounds for the turn signal. Do you know if there is a wiring diagram for the inside of the led tail light not just of the tail light assembly. Thanks in advance
Well I am ready to get ready to try to plug in these led 997.2 tail lights into my 996 Loren Could I get the pin layout for the 996 turbo tail lights and if you have the 997.2 led tails. I get the car back tommorrow and its going to be a fun weekend trying to make it work.
Yes that green car is my 2001 Porsche Turbo, that I converted from 996 to 997. I used all Porsche OEM factory parts for the rear. The fronts are Conversion Fenders from Misha. The rest of the parts are Techart parts from Germany
You asked for a diagram of the 996TT headlight pins - that is what I posted. Loren, Do you also happen to have the wire diagram of the 997TT headlight pins just like the 996 once you posted.. I need to find out which pins on the 997 head light are for the high beam so I can move the pins on my 996 over to make it work. Thanks for all your help.
Loren that image you posted is that the 996 wire harness pins or the back of the 997 headlight pins?
I dropped my car off at the body shop for the 997.2 led retrofit install. Does anyone have the wire diagram on what to change to make it work from a 2001 996TT. I saw that http://www.jacquemond.com/ has already done the conversion on a 996, but he has not responded to my email. His 997SportLook-09 body program for Porsche 996 3.4 and 3.6 uses a stock 996 body and makes it look like a 997 with the 997.2 led tails http://www.jacquemond.com/997spl9.htm I purchased the retrofit kit from Suncoast. They say they know it works for sure on all 997.1, but have no experience with a 996. Does anyone have a wire diagram of the rear tail light harness on a 996tt 2001 model, and the wire diagram of the LED tail light. That way I can match up the pins. Also I got a black hella box from Suncoast as well that says its required for 2005-2007 997, for 2007.5-2009 the tail lights plug straight in. So I am just not sure where that black box goes. http://e-partssales.com/Merchant2/merchant...Code=9972lights
I have converted my car from a 996 TT into a 997TT. The headlights bolted in to the stock harness. So far I got everything to work except the High Beam? Does anyone have the wire diagram of the headlights harness on the 996TT, and know where the high beam control is. I would also need the wire diagram of the 997 Headlight so I can switch the high beam pins over. Thanks in advance.
I bought also per your recommendation. How does this mirror attach to the 996 turbo. Did you need another adapter? It states on their auction some cars might need other adapters Does the 996 turbo need these? **This is a Universal Kit. It can be installed in any vehicle. If your vehicle uses the windshield mounted Wedge style mirror mounting tab like most cars do, you can simply remove your current mirror and put this one on your existing mounting tab. If your current mirror uses a different mount or mounts to the roof, you need to request a free Wedge Windshield bracket to install this mirror to your windshield. Please note that some vehicles may require an adapter to mount this mirror to your cars existing Windshield Mount. Newer Hondas and some other vehicles use a Cam-Lock Mount that requires an adapter. A Cam-Lock Adapter is available for an additional charge.
I need the part number for the rear wire harness that disables the error light when you replace the stock wing with a fixed wing that does not rise up anymore. Also I need the part number for the wire harness that goes from the stock decklid cooling fan to the car. Thanks in advance.
Thanks for all the kind words. No pictures of the motor since the engine bay looks stock except for the Evolution Motorsports Intake system. All the turbos, exhaust manifold, exhaust, etc are all underneath the car.
