got it! Do you know if the glove box has to be removed to get access or can it be accessed without remove the assembly? And do you happen to know the part number
thanks! it looks like i have to remove the the glove box to get to that? is there a part number or anyway to test it once i get to it?
yep, foot well lights work. I don't think it's the bulb/holder as i've tested and they both work (tried it in and from another 997.2). Where is the glovebox switch? I assume i need to go to the dealer for the VES control unit? would unplugging the battery reset it?
sorry, 2011 GT3 RS, thanks!
Does anyone know the fure for the glove box light? the glovebox light stopped working but interior lights still work (i've tried changing the bulbs already and even the housing from another car as i noticed there's a resistor on it) and when i lock the door with the glovebox open, the alarm doesn't chirp so I assume it is not registering that the glovebox is open anymore. thanks!
this is what the back of my PCM looks like... the plug circled in red is not used. everything is working (radio/GPS)
i've had two dealers look at this and none of them were able to get this to work. they said they got the activation codes from Porsche but the functions still do not work. I was wondering though, is there an additional wire that runs from the sports chrono to the PCM? My PCM has 3 plugs (1 for power, one for MOST cable, and not sure what the 3 is for but it is plugged in) and 2 antennas (one for GPS and second one is unused). Is the unused antenna for the phone antenna? or is this for the sports chrono?
is the sports chrono plus package plus actually hardware related or just programing? i retrofitted the nav in my 997 with sports chrono, but i'm unable to get the sports chrono to communicate with the PCM for the lap time functions. the dealer was able to program the nav to display on the dash lcd screen, but the functions of autolock, DRLs, etc... are not there. any ideas?
I just went through my install and you need make sure you get the right parts! do you have a C4 or C2? C4 takes vertical mounts and the C2 takes horizontal mounts. also, with or without bose? with or without CD changer I believe the PCM is all the same and works with the Navi, no need to update, but this i'm not sure. hope this helps! C2 without BOSE 997.622.707.00 Optical waveguide, without CD changer 997.622.715.00 Optical waveguide, with CD changer C2 with BOSE 997.622.710.00 Optical waveguide, without CD changer 997.622.713.00 Optical waveguide, with CD changer C4 without BOSE 997.622.722.00 Optical waveguide, without CD changer 997.622.725.00 Optical waveguide, with CD changer C4 (997) with BOSE 997.622.717.00 Optical waveguide, without CD changer 997.622.720.00 Optical waveguide, with CD changer
YseanY replied to YseanY's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Thank you! It looks like i have the correct dvd drive and mounts but need a few more hardware to mount the nav drive. I do not have a horizontal unit for sale. i purchased the dvd drive knowing i needed a vertical mount one. I also bought the pcm paired with the dvd unit.
YseanY replied to YseanY's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)997C4 and apparently your GT3 use a vertical mount in front of the bulkhead. The 997C2 & S use horizontal mount where you have the black hump. thanks! but where is the bulkhead? am i missing other mounting materials?
I just bought a used PCM 2.1 and Navigation for my car. The PCM install within 5 mins and everything is working correctly. However, I'm having trouble with the navigation unit. I believe the 997 S and GT3 (mine) uses the vertical mount navigation and my part numbers below should be for this. I cannot find a space to fit the unit! Am I suppose to remove the plastic cover in the center of the trunk to place the DVD drive? Navigation drive 997.642.159.01 Bracke 997.642.231.00 Some help would be great! Thanks!
