mObridge install issues - HELP!

Recommended Posts


I will try to get some support tomorrow as yesterday was not quite helpful - I got original navigation and also mobridge unit installed yesterday.

Navigation works fine but Mobridge gives issues.

it establishes contact with ipod and i can pair my phone with it but PCM does not see it at all. On pressing tel button system responds - no telephone available, pressing CD twice for cd changer shows 'cd changer: no cd'.

optical ring is intact as if i unplug optical cable from mobridge unit i loose navigation, i can see light in cable, so it seems to be alive.

is there any mobridge guru here who can advice? i am trying to work with seller who sold me unit but he does not seem to know much on how to troubleshoot and supposes issue may be related to the fact that my car never had cd changer installed originally. mobridge support wasn`t quite helpful yet. may be i`ll get more help from them tomorrow as yesterday dealer could not even get in touch with them - calls were not returned.

Unit was originally for MBZ but seller says he re-flashed it for Porsche. My car is 997 C2 with PCM 2.1. Dealer tried all combinations with PIWIS to enable and disable components - nothing helped. I am not sure what to look at, unit obviously seems to be alive and powered up but PCM does not see it. Why?
