Thanks a 2nd time Loren
Loren can I use 996 645 301 01 part number?
white99c2 posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Do you know if the front hi fi radio amplifier between 2 part numbers are interchangeable. The car has amp part number 996 645 322 00, can I use 996 645 301 01? Thanks in advance
Will this fit on my '99?
Absolutely fantastic, make sure you buy the Kenwood iPod cable. The iPod will not work without the specific Kenwood cable. I have a Sirius tuner, PM me if your interested in how to negotiate pricing with Sirius. I got everything that they offer for $26 for 5 months. Bluetooth works well. Ground the brake wire and DVD's play while your moving as we'll as the ability to add a destination to the Nav while the car is moving. The HD radio is crystal clear with stations that send the album cover of the song you're listening to on the screen. I loaded custom POI's from POI Factory to alert me of red light and speed cameras nation wide with updates every Wednesday. All in all, the sound quality with 5 amp pre-outs is excellent. My 911 has all new speakers, a 300w amp for the front and rear and a 400w amp for the 8" Sub. I like my music and this head unit sounds fantastic. There are lot of really nice features in the Nav setup to monitor your driving, keep track of fuel usage, green driving etc.
Thanks, mission accomplished. It works like a charm. The Kenwood DNX6990HD I added is amazing, HD FM Radio, iPod, Bluetooth, Sirius XM, Navigation By Garmin with traffic, Backup Camera, DVD Player...hacked to play while the car is moving and added a USB Hub and USB 32 Gig flash dive loaded with movies for the kids. I updated amps, sub and all speakers last year. This is by far an amazing system with an audio sound that is over the top.
I added a 2DIN Kenwood system in the upper dash and moved the HVAC controls to the bottom spot of the lower console. Above it is the CD holder. Can I add these cupholders in the spot where the CD Holder is now? http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-99-01-GENUINE-PORSCHE-996-CARRERA-DUAL-CUP-HOLDERS-/320593629164?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&fits=Make%3APorsche&hash=item4aa4de8fec&vxp=mtr
I read in the disclosure statement for the wireless camera that they can cause interference with the Bluetooth system.
My car is a '99 Coupe. I've read a few posts, this being the best: http://www.renntech.org/forums/topic/26098-how-to-run-backup-camera-wiring/?hl=backup+camera Correct me if I'm wrong. From the camera in the rear there is a yellow RCA that has to get back to the head unit to plug in to the video in for the camera and also a positive and ground that both connect to the drivers side tail light reverse light connection. From the head unit there is one wire 12 volt trigger that must connect to a reverse trigger to automatically switch the screen when I put the car into reverse. Where does this wire connect, somewhere in the interior or back at the tail light? I am not sure how to get the yellow RCA from the engine compartment through the grommet mentioned in the link I posted above and then into the interior compartment. If any of you have done this please reply to this post with any tips that may help. Thanks RS
white99c2 replied to Drpest's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Take a stab at disconnecting the neg of the battery for 5 minutes and let the memory clear out then give it a crank. Question, did you re-wire this new Sony or was it just a plug it in swap considering you went from Sony to Sony? What about the ground wire from the original factory radio chassis that works with the factory alarm system, is it taped up.
white99c2 replied to venturawildes's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Every time you wash the car wash the edge of the blades with the sponge. Polish or use wax on the windshield often, guaranteed results, no more chatter.
The new key will come with a bar code tab as I mentioned earlier. You need to bring the dealer, your old key, new key, the car and a credit card. You'll drive away with a working key and a payment due on the credit card... :-)
You need a new key fob. They die and stop working. Buy a new one on eBay that is brand new and comes with the bar code tab. Take it to Porsche, they'll put your key into it and program it to your car. Do not buy one unless it has the bar code tab or it will be a waste of money. I bought a new one on eBay for $85.00 a few months ago, dealer charged me $65 to program it.
Soap, water, sponge, your back and either a right or left hand. Very simple.
