Questions about 2002 C2 w manual transmission


Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am a sesoned (3 days) Porsche owner. It is 2002 C2 coupe with manual transmission on 19 inch wheels. I live in Canada and I would like to know if it is possible to change the computer display to read in metric. Kilometers, deg Celcius etc. Also I need to have an all day lights. Can I do it myself? Car is fantastic, I am 6'5" and I fit in it OK - it is like a very confy glove. It is a pleasure to drive it, to look at it, and I hope the engine will stay running for many years. Also I do not have the manual for the car. Is there any place that I could download owners manual? Thank you,

Andy K

Easiest way: become a 'contributing member' of this site for ~$20 US (totally worth it) and you can then download your manual in PDF.

From what i read on page 89: using the little lever on the left of the steering wheel: push lever forward > select 'set' > and the second or third selection down is 'speedometer: km/mls - so select this one and change it.

I believe you have to change every readout (temp, fuel consumption, etc) individually on the 996 - but I could be wrong. On my 997 it is a setting in the PCM and it changes everything at once.

Cheers and enjoy your great car!

Hi

I an Canada with the same car, For your Daytime running lights do this

It's in your owners manual: right top side of your speedo

to change a 996/997 speedo to km from miles, turn the little dial to the left and hold for 5 or 6 seconds

Welcome. I brought a US spec 996 Cab to Canada about a year ago. The Daytime Running light fix is easy and works like a charm. The speedo and dash issue was solved with a quick trip to the dealer (Calgary). They charged $37 to switch the dash to metric. It took about 10 minutes. When you download the manual it will also tell you how to change the speedo reading between miles and kilometres.

Good luck.

Thanks very much for the replies,

I switch the miles to kilometers using the right top stick on the instrument cluster, but the farenhaits stay there. Will the dealer or myself be able to change them to celcius?

thanks,

To change temperature use the lower left lever and scroll through the settings on your dash panel, this sets up all your conversions, it's all in the user manual.

Thanks to all those that pointed to Yosuif's website.... excellent documentation for hacking DRL… it works well but here is my question… in my car, an 02 C4S, this activates the Xenon beams…. I was hoping it would turn on the parking lights only. What do you think of jumping to the Fog lights? I have looked for a fuse assignment for the parking lights but see nothing… the fogs were another option. I guess I am worried about running the Xenons all the time… bulb life etc…

Has anyone been able to activate the parking lamps rather than the lowbeam headlights?

Thoughts??
