What Hardware Fs Required To Turn On The Obc For 2003 Boxster?


Recommended Posts

I have a 2003 Boxster with cruise control and would like to add the fourth stock and turn on the OBC. I am also thinking the Durametric tool would be a good investment. I sent the Durametric folks a note asking about turning on the OBC and they say with version 6 beta test release, they offer the ability to turn on the OBC. They also said successful activation requires the OBC supporting hardware. If your car is ready for the OBC, it is likely the Durametric Enthusiast or Professional kit, using version 6, can turn it on. I asked about the supporting hardware and the answer was it is the "stalk and potentially other components."

Is there anything else required, besides the stalk and associated parts from from Jeff at Sunset, time, patience and rentech to get the OBC working on my 2003 Boxster?
