pizblu replied to JeTexas's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I gave it a try, but it didn't change anything. I have an email in to Becker along with a price request on the telephone and aux cables, which I plan to use to hack together an iPhone interface. We'll see what they say. I finally heard back from Becker. They said I'd have to send in the unit, and it will be a $120 flat fee plus part costs to repair it. I think I'll just keep listening to my ipod. If I get brave and tear the unit apart I'll post photos. I had a similar problem where I keep getting an error everytime I inserted a CD. I bought a refurbished unit form Becker for about $220 and bought an interface cable for my Ipod for another $15 from them. Everyting has worked fine for over a year now. I like the sound quality of the CD's over the Ipod is why I got the refurbished unit. http://www.beckerautosound.com/ Dave T Does the cable charge the iPod battery ot it works only for speakers (through the AUX port of the radio, I suppose) ? Thanks
pizblu replied to pizblu's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)No, I'm the third owner. I contacted the previous one, but I don't know nothing about that; I'm not able to contact the first owner. I showed it to the Porsche Center that sold the new car and have done regular maintenance. They don't have fitted it, but they are quite sure that it is an anti-theft GPS tracker. I'll try to undestand which model is it and if I can resume it.

Hello, I was mounting off the radio (a Becker CDR22 on my 996 MY2002) and I founded, inside the radio place but lower than the radio , on the left side (see picture 1 and follow red arrow), a "box", around 1 x 4 inches, connected with a jack "audio type" and a red flashing led (see picture 2). Somebody knows what is it? Thanks, Pizblu
pizblu replied to bolobar's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I have mounted them three monts ago and I am happy, these typres has good performances (dry and rain) and competitive price. furthermore, I find that they aren't noisy, and this is an unanimous opinion on Europeans Porsches' Forums. I mounted the same on my 964 and they had a good longlife (I sold the car after further 15.000 km, tyres in still very good conditions).
pizblu replied to TXGold's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)What is the difference beetween the Solisto's interface and a few $ cable connected on the CD changer port at the rear of the receiver with, on the other side, a connector (stereo 3,5 mm or other) fitting with your player ?
I'm concerned by this problem and I founded that "Blue Smoke from the Engine" is dealed in TSB n°1716 1/02 of May 10th, 2002. Unluckily, this is one of the few TSBs missing in our forum. Do anyone knows where can I find it? Thanks a lot!
