Gen-1 To Gen-2 Front Led Lights Hook-Up ?

Recommended Posts

Hello all!

Information needed how to correctly hook up the new Gen-2 LED driving lights/indicators in my Gen-1 ('06) C2.

What I found out so far is that you need the new Gen-2 front control unit (# 997 618 512 01, approx. $250) which ties into the CAN bus and needs to be programmed later with the PIWIS (dealer),

and 2 mini harnesses (997 612 501 25, approx. 2x $30) that plug into the new LED units and need to be spiced into the existing loom.

Also, apparently 2 pins need to be moved (or re-moved?) on the control.

Has anybody successfully done this and can provide the information how to correctly splice the wires and modify the 2 control-box pins ?

If not, the 2 WIRING DIAGRAMS for the early 997 models ('05 - '08 / Gen-1) AND for the new '09 - '10 (Gen-2) would help IMMENSELY!

Did you look here?



Yes Paul,

that's where I found the limited information I do have so far.

Problem is that "a mechanic from an OPC " did the wiring modification on Tim's (996turbotim) car in the UK - Tim was extremely helpful providing any information he knows, but unfortunately he doesn't have the details from the porsche mechanic who did his car for money - that's why I put the question out here, I'm sure somebody must have done it on our side of the pond!?!?

Thanks anyway for trying to help!
