Installing BT on 2006 911 C4S

Recommended Posts

I have a 2006 C4S Cab with the factory installed ($900) telephone option. I want to remove the module, or at least take it off the the MOST fiber optic loop and install a feedback closure instead. I know I need to then have the PCM re-programmed by the dealer in order to take the telephone out of the system as I am installing a BT module, which can't co-exist with the factory installed telephone module.

But, I am having a hard time finding out where the physical location of the telephone module is. I have been told it is under the passenger seat, but have looked... and it is not there. I have a service manual for my car but it is dismal when it comes to servicing this option. Looks like from one graphic illustration it might be in the driver's side dash above the instrument cluster?

Does anyone know where the factory telephone module was installed on my year and model Porsche? Also, depending on where it is located, can someone point me to a website or information which would help advise on how to get to it?

Thanks, John.

There are TSBs (Service Bulletins) that cover all of this.

TSBs are available here to view by our Contributing Members.

The telematics module for the phone sits in the passenger footwell behind the side kickplate. With a PWIS unit it should be possible to simply switch off the modul by removing it from the PCM options list.

We can advise on both removal/deprogramming of the factory phone module, and other BT options if you want to add true Bluetooth to the vehicle.
