Location of fusebox?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm a newbie owner of a UK spec 2003 Carrera 996.

Sorry for the really basic question but can anyone tell me where to find the fusebox? Also, can anyone tell me which fuse I need to remove to disable power to the PCM2?

I have recently had a new PCM2 fitted and ever since the battery has been draining to dead within 48 hours.

Paul, the fusebox should be in the footwell, near where your right foot is. There is a black cover, has a hole in it where you can put in your finger and pull. It should come off and it is "hinged" from the bottom. If you use the "Quick Menu" above, select the "Owners Manual" and you can download the 2003 manual with all the information you are looking for, and a lot more.

So if I want to fully disable the PCM2 in my Aug 03 Carrera, I will need to remove fuses D8, D9, D10, E6 and E8?

It looks that way to me too. It doesn't look like it will interfere with anything else.

BTW, I think there is a small blade fuse on the back of the main PCM unit too.
