  1. Thanks Loren. My guess is that MOST programming is something only available with dealer specific tools (PIWIS, etc) or is that something that can be accessed by a shade tree mechanic Calling myself a mechanic, shade tree or not is being generous!; mechanical tinkerer is probably more accurate, but I do enjoy working through issues like these. Thanks again for everyone's help.
  2. Ok. The only reason that I am aware that the codes are there, is that I purchased a OBDII device to shut off an airbag alert from when I repaired my window lifter and took out the airbag without knowing the consequences. After I cleared the code for that, I checked on everything else. I assume that the alarm code saying the radio was not found can safely be ignored. The instrument cluster seemed superfluous too since the instrument cluster has shown no problems (the radio was swapped out years ago). The two that I wonder about are the PCM control unit and the automatic air con.
  3. This is a very old thread, but then again, I have an old car! Exact same problem as Awesomebang described all the way down to the brand of the after market radio! I am convinced that the codes being displayed are related to the swap out of the radio, but the question is how to resolve this. JFP in PA says the MOST bus needs to be reset to reflect the change... how is that accomplished?
  4. Thanks! This is the diagram I have been looking for. Do you happen to know the speaker impedances for each speaker?My new amp is a five way. My current thoughts are to drive the dash speakers with two; the door speakers with two; and the sub with the sub out. The question then is what to do with the rear speakers. It looks like they are driven in a mono configuration stock,so my thoughts are to drive them with the doors. Has anyone done similar? I assume that I could get into the box and separate the speakers and run another speaker wire to be able to drive these independent of each other. I c
  5. The car is a 2004, Boxster S - 986, with "Bose High End Sound Package" option. This Bose system has the CDR23 head unit and an amp in the front trunk. There are left and right speakers in the dash, the doors and in the rear mounted speaker box. The rear mounted speaker box has two small speakers on the left and right and a large port in the center. I am a persistent person, but I am finally having to reach out for help. After several months of off and on searching for information, I finally decided to pull the trigger and replace the head unit in the Boxster. From reading an unbelievable
