PST2 cable p/n vs. KTS500 cable p/n

Recommended Posts


I'm wondering if anyone out there with a genuine (grey) PST2 can confirm the part number on their diagnostics cable.

I know the cable that comes with the KTS500 is different from the Porsche one.

Do you have 1 684 462 386 on your cable?

Or do you have 000 721 958 85?

Reason I ask is, looking at this website, if you zoom into the image for 000 721 958 85, it looks like 1 684 462 386 - so have reason to believe the cable I have (1 684 462 386) is a genuine Porsche cable.

I have a green KTS500 which I believe has been successfully converted into a PST2. It is running version 24 of PST2 software. It has a silver pcmcia card (looks like kts 502 on this site http://kts-500.com/welcome_eng.html), and a bosch 1 684 462 386 cable. When I go into the PST2’s card information screen, it tells me card # 0650549623, dealer # 4500647, software version 1.00, hardware version 1.00, and customer group 1.

The reason why I am asking is I understand that during programming a Motronic 5.2.2, it requires power on pin 12... and the standard KTS500 bosch cable is not wired through.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks Loren. Useful info as always!

I see from the manual that for the diagnostics lead I would assume by this table that porsche part number 000 721 958 85 is equivelant to bosch part number 1 684 462 386. I am not the type to assume though...


I am wondering if anyone who has a genuine PST2 could actually look at their cable and confirm that which part number is written on it. Do you see 1 684 462 386, 000 721 958 85, or nothing at all?

My KTS500 which I am trying to validate whether it was genuinely converted to PST2 has 1 684 462 386 written on the lead.

Thanks again
