DME / Alarm Coding for ROW?

Recommended Posts

I have my DME coded as a Boxster S, 986320. What I'm wondering is what needs changing to make it think it's a European car, is there a code variation? As I understand it the Euro 986 has a fwe little things ours do not like auto-windows from the remote, I thought it would be interesting to give this a try.

Is there a code or am I on a wild goose chase? Ir can my car do the auto-window thing already? (As I udnerstand it holding the key unlock button on a Euro car will unlock the car then open both windows).

Hi Chris

It is 986321 for RoW Boxster S's.

Have a look in the Alarm Coding with the PST2, and you'll see options for RoW/Japan etc. It might be worth trying to select RoW and see if you get the extra features.

The only snag to this might be that the remotes operate on a different frequency, but it is definitely worth a shot.

I tried coding my 996 from "GB with Sunroof" to "US with Sunroof" in the country coding to see if it had the opposite effect on my UK car. Didn't work - I got a fault - "wrong door lock". There are loads of country code options, so maybe it would be a question of trying a few different ones to see if you can find one that works.

Yeah, I tried to change mine to several different settings (i.e D w/sliding roof, AUS w/sliding roof, RoW w/sliding roof. They all gave me an several faults.

Mine got a little upset too, I changed the country coding to D which I assume is Germany and the horn would beep and the doors lock and unlock followed by a rash of codes. Ooops, I think I'll live without remote control windows!!!
