any DIY for V1 hardwaire

Recommended Posts

I am trying to hardware the V1 in my Cayenne like my 996. Is there any DYI out there? The A-pillar in the Cayenne is the side airbag. So I don't want to take a chance and try to remove the trim. Thanks in advance

I can only find the wire & fuse location for hardwire the V1. I am more interest in remove the A-Pillar trim & the PCM. I want to see if any one has instruction to remove those components before I attemp to figure out.

I just hardwired my V1

Mounted under mirror ,then ran wire along top of windshield . At the pillar tuck it into top of "airbag trim" around to rubber doorseal ,Then down under seal and can go right into fuse box on drivers side. The hard wire that comes with V1 has an end with a male connector covered with blue plastic . trim off the plastic and push it into fuse location # 48 (switched)in the bottom ( you can look and see that the bottom spot has metal clips ,The top doesn't. this should make sense when you look ) The ground can be attached to any screw attached to metal. If you have the concealed display you can run that wire from inside the fuse box to the steering column so that it comes out on top of column. I attached with supplied velcro right to column. It works great.

I was planning to do it this afternoon but went in to couple problem. First I can't get power from the fuse box like becuase #48 is used by my air suspension. I also want to install a FM modulator as well and found the antenna adapter I have doesn't work with the PCM. I think I will just get the power from the PCM to power the FM mudulator & V1. I checked this after and found out once the right side fuse box open, it is very easy to run the wire from the A-Piller to the rear mirror. I will wait for the antenna adapter arrive and do both later.
