Will the new 997.2 Remote Fob work on a 996?


Recommended Posts

I've read that a 996 can be programed to accept a signal from Carrera GT fob and that a 997 and Carrera GT have the same electronics. The new 997.2 fob apparently works on the 997.1, so can a 997.2 fob update be possible? How about for the 3 button Targa?

Isn't that because the Design Key fob only has 2 buttons and a Cabriolet and Targa have 3? But my question is can the 997.2 Targa fob be mated to the 996 Targa?

No - they are different immobilizers.

I was told by the dealer that a 996 Coupe fob can be mated to a 996 Targa if you give up a button (The dealer can program the second button to do what you like - just had that done), so if the Design Key fob will work with a 996 Coupe wouldn't it work with a 996 Targa (I remember reading that in your forum)? Since the Design Key and the 997.2 fob have the same electronics, doesn't that mean that it would also mate irrespective of the different immobilizer?

You can try if you want - let us know if it works.

Richard - he wants to use a 997-2 Targa key.

My local dealer's service department confirms that at least one customer has a 997.2 two button remote fob working on a 996 coupe. Since they did not program it, they were unable to confirm if it was operating on the integrated 315Mhz transmitter or if the electronics were imported from the integrated transmitter from a Carrera GT design fob which they had previously mated for the customer. Since one of my two fobs is not transmitting, I will pick up a 3 button 997.2 and try to get my Targa matted to it. If it doesn't work, it will be a snappy looking spare key.
