  1. Loren, Which code scanner would you recommend for 99 Boxster?
  2. HI, My car wont start this morning after i parked 30 minutes earlier. it has a 3 month old battery to that cant be the issue. my question is: Will OBD2 scanner tell me why the car isn't starting? if its the crack sensor, oxygen senson, bad immobilizer, starter rely, etc etc. I am pretty broke now and dont want to spend $200 to get it towed to a mechanic and have it checked if its something I can fix myself. Thanks guys.
  3. Hey Richard, Thanks a lot for that explanation. I did all that, but have a couple hurdles. As you know I bought metra 70-1787 harness, and am using that to connect the new stereo. Now looking at the metra harness there are only wires avaiable for pin numbers 4,6,7 and 8. Rest of the pins on metra harness are empty. Also, there is no illumination wire on the harness that came with the new stereo. Additionally, when I connected them as you said, I heard cd ejecting sound from the new unit. But it did not power on. I am on stand by.
  4. Can someone please tell me which number wires from Exhibit A go with which number wires from Exhibit B: -------------------------------------------- Exhibit A This is the labeling of CDR-220: ( the link) http://www.iwantaporsche.net/StereoWiringConfig.pdf ---------------------------------------------- Exhibit B: This is the labeling of the NEW stereo 16 pin. Pin Number Wire Color Function 1 White Left Front Positive 2 Green Left Rear Positive 3 Violet Right Rear Positive 4 Grey Right Front Positive 5 Blue/White Amplifier Remote 6 Blue Antenna Remote 7 Red Accessory 12 Volts 8 Black Ground 9 White/Black Left Front Negative 10 Green/Black Left Rear Negative 11 Violet/Black Right Rear Negative 12 Grey/Black Right Front Negative 13 Sky Blue Telephone Mute 14 Orange/White Illumination ( the wire isnt there ) 15 Not Used Not Used 16 Yellow Constant 12 Volts Can someone please tell me which number wires from Exhibit A go with which number wires from Exhibit B. i have spent 2 days now figuring this out, but all in vain.
  5. Hi, I have done so much research online today, but couldnt find the answer i am looking for. so here is my question: I bought a Sony stereo to replace my CDR-220 in my 99 Boxster. I already have an AMP in the front trunk of the car. Now, Do I just need a wiring harness to install this? or, will I need to cut and connect other wires besides the harness? I ask because this custom audio shop i asked for advise, confused the heck out of me. This is the harness I am ordering: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Metra+-+Wiring+Harness+Adapter+for+1993+-+2004+Audi+and+Volkswagen+Vehicles/9437503.p?id=1218105188510&skuId=9437503&st=metra%2070-1787&cp=1&lp=1 will this harness also provide power to the new system? cuz there are only 4 rca connector coming out of the harness. I am confused and appreciate any help. Thank you so much.
  6. Try 4545 You are one heck of a human. It worked. Thanks a lot!'
  7. Hi, I need that 4 digit code as well. Thanks a bunch in advance. 1999 boxster. Becker 1 . 4462. Serial number: X50 12667. 45/98 Thanks again.
