Wiring Harness found under Passenger seat?


Recommended Posts

Hi would any know what the plug and coaxial or digital cable is for that I found under my passenger seat? They are not plugged in?

Thanks for you help

Mark

Do you have DVD Navigation? The drive for that system goes there and that is likely the plugs for that system.

Yes I have the PCM in my 2005. The DVD player for the Nav is in the front of the seat and it works with out these?

If the drive is there and working then I really don't know what else those connectors could be for, hopefully someone else can help.

Thanks to this thread you have helped resolve a 5 year mystery for me.

In '05 I customed ordered a Cayenne with telephone prep, $250. When the car came all I got was a black adapter bolted to passenger hand hold at center console. Dealer said "Porsche has run into problems with FCC regarding telephone sales and has suspended all phone prep."

<Insert your own experlative here>

I was told I would be contacted when the FCC issue was resolved.

After years of inquiry I was told by service rep only way to get phone capability was change out PCM head unit to one with sim drawer, $5000

<insert more colorful experlative here>

In '05 when I first got FCC excuse from dealer I bought ( on Ebay) for $50 the entire hardware to equip an '04 Cayenne with mobile phone prep, but let it sit waiting for dealer to advise. I thought I could save some money on hardware using this used stuff. (Part numbers available if anyone wants to know)

When I saw this post I dug up my old Ebay hardware plugged it in to wiring harness, dug out my old cellphone from '05 AND THE SYSTEM WORKED!!!!!

The radio mutes, PCM announces (visually) incoming call, and calls routed through car speakers. The microphone is even installed.

Two problems however;

I cannot find the antenna coax cable under passenger seat.

Who wants a hard wired cell phone to car (I would like to convert to bluetooth)

Anyone hook up a bluetooth using this pigtail under the passenger seat?

I believe I have read some posts about people hooking up a Parrot bluetooth kit under the seat.
