Installing An Alarm

Recommended Posts

Hello All:

I am a Boxster newbie. I have recently purchased a 97 Tip without a factory alarm. I have previously installed remote start central locking paging alarms to my other car, but I had a wiring diagram for that and it's central locking unit was very conventional. The Boxster's central locking unit can be more tricky with the fancy window roll-up and double-quick-turn lock features, etc.

Does anyone have any pointers as to what needs to be removed, and which coloured wire to tap into? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

No wonder! I would've thought alarm install should be common practice and yet there is virtually no thread on it. Boxster is cheaper in the US and better equipped - even when it's not, it's still got all the stuff to be hacked into. Stupid Oz deliveries... :) Cheers anyway.

I forgot there is some kind of alarm retrofit kit sold by Porsche. I cannot tell what it does due to the bad description on the parts list. Check with your dealer and maybe they can figure out if this would be something you want or will work on your car.

It is called "retrofit kit remote control interior monitoring anti-theft device" with the option code 534. Part number is 000 044 900 29 and it is only listed for a 1997.

In the US the alarm system on a 1997 is different than a 1998-2000.

For other interested readers :huh: the same kit for a 1998-2000 is 000 044 900 32 - but the option code listed is 535.
