Install is in the reverse order. If this works okay then let me know and we'll move this to the 997 DIY section. Thank's Loren! The directions were perfect, I just took a bit of careful time figuring out the Disconnect plug connection on the hot film mass air flow meter..seems the locking lever is on the back side
There is a thread on Rennlist about installing the Cayenne Sat tuner in a 997 by an audio shop, and the photo seems to show that it worked. My question is this: Would not the audio shop need to have a PIWIS tester to "Code" the sat tuner to the PCM? You just can't add the module and it will be recognized or can you? (edit - fixed image - Loren)
996TRUNDLE replied to loday22's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)That is correct. P/N 997.044.802.00 for vehicles w/xenons and headlamp washers P/N 997.044.802.01 for vehicles without. Difference being: holes for the washer
That is the way it is designed to work! It is a really great option that really works, I'am glad I got it!
996TRUNDLE replied to turkish_eyebrow's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Your sales person has no :censored: clue...The aftermarket TechArt does not come close to X51. Aftermarket tuners pretty much stick to bolt on stuff and rarely mess with internal engine components. X51 Includes modified cylinder heads, camshafts, exhaust manifolds, control unit, and aluminum intake manifold, CF airbox, third radiator and sports exhaust.

996TRUNDLE replied to aekara's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)You actually take the SIM card out of your phone and place it in the card drawer and your ready to go. Yes, a bit of a PIA, but your phone book comes along. Once you swap the card from phone to car a couple of times it's not so difficult. Option 2 would be to get another phone and dedicate the SIM card to the car and forward calls from phone to car. In the US you are not able to have a duplicate SIM card All operational info can be displayed in the PCM screen but better than that it is displayed in the OBC under the tach, and operation is controlled by the OBC stalk, where you can call up phone #'s, receient calls etc... a call comes in and you just press the stalk to answer or hang up, etc. If you have a multi-function wheel you can use steering wheel comtrols. Sound quality in both directions is excellent, and operation is easy, no looking far off the road for the numbers or control. :thumbup:
996TRUNDLE replied to aekara's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)I hate DEALERSPEAK..they are uninformed and make stories up!!! Option 666 Telephone Module, IS available as a Tequipment retrofit. P/N is 997.044.900.71 and as well you will need an optical waveguide P/N 997.622.703.00 Install TSB # is 2/08 9155 (2/21/05, 14 pgs) and is available on your dealers eDCS computer in the document repository in the service area and he can pull it up and print it for you, takes about 2min... Labor listed as 4.6hrs Don't know the parts cost, give the parts dept a call and ask for price and availability of the P/N's listed above. Perhaps you could post the cost when you find out... TIP: If you are a PCA member most dealerships will give a 10% discount on P&L. BTW the GSM phone module works really well, mine was factory fitted and I'am pleased with it's operation and clairity! Your dealership was uninformed...what was suspended was the Porsche "Cell Solution" since they got sued for copyright infringement by the maker. It had nothing to do with "safety issues"
996TRUNDLE replied to Servo's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Michellin PS2 Impossible to request a specific tire, since all mounted tires are "approved"
Vehicle dist bulletin #74 PCNA is pleased to announce the Carrera S wheel is now available for all changeable MY 2005 and MY 2006 987 and 997 orders. Vehicle dist bulletin #75 PCNA is pleased to announce the availability of Option XLF, Sport Exhaust, for all changeable MY 2006 997 orders. Vehicle dist bulletin #65 997 A sunroof delete option for the 997 Coupe series will not be available for the life span of the vehicle. Federal occupant crash regulations for sunroof versus nonsunroof vehicles and the resultant engineering expense to meet those regulations make this option financially non-viable, for the small number of vehicles configured. Vehicle dist bulletin #37 PAG has advised the following options have been released and are now available for ordering on 997 and 987 models. Option 666 – Module for Telephone PCM $960 Phone module for PCM allows users with a GSM phone to Insert a SIM card and use the PCM as a hands-free telephone.
996TRUNDLE replied to BennyGca's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)According to the TSB install instructions you will still need to purchase an Optical waveguide (4 choices) depends if you have or have not Bose and Nav in combination with each other. Additionally you will have to visit your dealer to have them code the PCM with their PIWIS tester. ;)
996TRUNDLE replied to geoff's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)They have done a very good job with the implementation of the GSM phone module, sound quality is great in both directions. She can use her exhisting SIM from her current phone, just take the card out of the phone and pop it in the drawer, bit of a pain since we can't get dupe cards, but after you do it a few times it's an easy task. Coolness is that the stored numbers come across as well, and appear and can be scrolled thru and seen in the OBC window under the tach. Bluetooth at this time will NOT interface with the PCM
996TRUNDLE replied to geoff's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)The GSM phone is very well engineered and hands free is the way to go. You must have a PCM that has the Sim card drawer ans SOS button to add this option. (early prod cars did not have this faceplate) p/n 997 044 900 71 Telephone Module PCM2 NAV is GREAT as well and well worth having p/n 997.044.900.70 Both options will require an additional Optical Waveguide p/n depends how vehicle is equiped (Bose c/d etc.) You can call your dealers parts dept and ask for stock and availability of the above p/n's Perhaps you can cut a deal for the install of both at once Seperately the install labor is: GSM phone 4.6 hr NAV 3.1 hr
The TSB is 2/05 9155 and is available in the document repository area of your dealers eDCS TU for install are 460 Did you order individual parts or the kit? The kit should contain all necessary parts minus the correct optical waveguide. ie: holder for module, module, microphone, antenna & holder, wire harness (antenna lead & mic lead) and misc asst parts.
