I've got a DME that has been programmed by FVD to use in my turbo. It comes from the same year model as mine (2004). I apparently need to have it programmed with IPAS codes so that it will work. However, every dealer I've talked to has said that they need to program the keys as well. Digging through the service info that I got from Porschelibrarian, they should be able to just plug in the new DME and then program it with the security codes. I've even cut and pasted the steps that describe what to do with moving one DME to another vehicle to no avail. I suppose I need to just send it back to FVD for programming but I thought I would ask here if there is any way to program this without bringing the whole car in somewhere to have that done (other than just shipping it off to FVD apparently).

The DME and alarm control box work together to protect your car. The alarm control has to have each key programmed to it.

To program the keys/alarm controller you need the DME, the alarm controller, ALL of the keys (with their unique codes), your unique IPAS codes and a PST2 or PIWIS tester.

The control units talk to each other - both need to be present.

The keys are a precaution.

OK - that clarifies it a bit. Bummer, I was hoping that if I don't like the program or when it is time to sell it off I could avoid another trip for reprogramming.
