2011 Spyder DIY PSE install?

Recommended Posts

Just picked up my Spyder and was wondering if anyone has the directions for the PSE install (wiring for the button)?

I fitted the PSE to my 2005 987 S. You will need a new switch module with the PSE button and some time with a local porsche agent or specialist that has a full PWIS. Porsche sell the wiring kit as a spare part that connects the front switch module to the rear DME. The wiring may already be in place for the PSE solenoid under the engine cover, this was certainly the case in the later gen 1cars.

As an alternative you can fit a simple push button switch with a 12V switched supply , thereby bypassing the porsche "nanny" logic that makes the exhaust quiet between 30 and 40 mph. I made up a mini loom for my own car as a bypass for the PSE control to allow the PSE to be switched independently. I made a bracket to mount the switch in the ashtay compartment after initially installing a pushbutton under the handbrake. If you fit your own switch you can wire it direct to the actuation solenoid thereby negating the need for any porsche involvement or re coding.
