  1. I had exactly the same problem. Turns out the CAN bus control module which controls the key memory and light at the bottom of the door was loose / disconnected (behind the door card I think). If your door light does not work that's a pretty good sign that you have the same (or similar) problem. BTW, I assume that you held the "1" (or 2 or 3) key while pressing the "M" (Memory) button to save the setting(s) ?

  3. The MAF is often a contributor to poor running. Try disconnecting the wiring to it...if it runs better (using the default map in the ECU) then that's a good signed that the MAF is US or may need a clean with electronics cleaner.
  4. Rough idle is often caused by a dirty throttle body. I assume that you've already cleaned it but if not, it's worth a try.
  5. What they said. Could also be the throttle body needs a clean.
  6. Classic symptoms of a failing air flow sensor (MAF) in my view. You could try cleaning it and if that doesn't change the situation replace it. You can also do a check of the MAF by disconnecting the cable...if it runs better using the default map in the ECU which is activated when no valid MAF signals are received, you can bet the MAF is stuffed.
  7. Hi there fellow Aussie, I think you will find that (like most things) the world is divided into the USA market and the Rest of World (whic includes us Aussies) so getting the MO30 should not be an issue and in fact if my logic is correct should be the standard fit.
  8. A good aftermarket replacement with the same look and feel as the OEM is the Becker Grand Prix. This includes an MP3 CD capability, Bluetooth etc. For more details see: http://www.boxa.net/forum/index.php?showto...=solisto+becker (you may need to register first if not currently a member)
  9. I have just installed the MB Quart DKH110 speakers in the dash and they only just fit..at the limit I would suggest. Their installation depth (i.e distance between bottom of magnet and fixing screw location is 2.17" which is ca. 55 mm. On that basis, I would suggest that a speaker with 60 mm depth will not fit !
  10. ..or in the worst case, see http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi...=STRK:MESELX:IT Shipping via courier (3-4 days) is $A 65. :D
  11. I am no nav expert but assume that the navigation application supplied with the kit can utilise maps in standard PND or other common formats. My questions are: - did you get Aussie maps with the kit? - as far as you can tell, who is the source of the maps (Sensis, Teleatlas ?) - do they work and are they any good?
  12. The Solisto Pro 4200B01 is a USB / Ipod / Aux in adaptor for the Becker Grand Prix / Traffic Pro and Porsche CDR22 / 220 range of radios but not sure whether this works with the CDR23 because of the MOST bus. It does exactly what you suggest and emulates the CDC-3 / Becker Silverstone CD changers. (see http://cgi.ebay.com.au/USB-iPod-iPhone-Int...=item2ea808924a for details). It provides a simple interface for USB (memory stick), IPod / Iphone and aux in (for other MP3 players). I installed this with a Becker Grand Prix radio which offers native MP3 / Bluetooth capability and am fairly happy with the system as it retains the OEM look and is relatively affordable. If you want more details of this install please see Boxa.net (http://www.boxa.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=41811).
  13. The normal spots for coolant leaks are the coolant tank (it develops small cracks, check under the carpet in the boot..sorry trunk), the coolant cap itself (it sometimes lets go) and the radiators in the front bumper (corrosion due to leaves etc). However in your case it looks like you're got a leak around the water pump connections. That elbow connected to the rubber hose in your photo looks very corroded and may be worth removing for a check and/or replacing.
  14. In that case I would simply recommend an exhaust auxilliary bypass (which is the same principle used by Porshce on their PSE switchable exhaust option). Typical examples can be seen, heard and purchased from people such as Oettle in Ulm, Germany. But I'm sure it can be done locally fairly easily.
