Setting the automatic doors locking

Recommended Posts


I would like to set the automatic door locking to my 997: as I don't have the sport chrono package, the procedure consists of getting to the dealer in order for him to set the adequate option to my car computer system.

I suppose that there would need a tech2 system [very old monitoring system] or equivalent terminal to set the new option. I would be curious to know where is plugged the terminal.

Could someone would be kind enough to tell me where it is, before I eventually go to my dealer?

Thank you.

Thank you Loren for your response and attached picture. So this is the PIWIS i.e. the terminal used to monitor everything electronic on the car? Where do the dealer plug it in on 996 models? Is there a plug in the car cockpit, or in the engine compartment, or is it in the front hood?

Also, what does PIWIS stands for? is it an abbreviation?

Thank you.

This handy little tool is only $9700 to purchase... and of course you will need the monthly updates $1200/year.

It plugs into the OBD II socket under dash. For certain functions it has test/measurement probes that are plugged in elsewhere. It can read all of the cars diagnostic systems (DME, instrument cluster, OBC, ABS, PSM, etc., etc.).

I don't know for sure what PIWIS stands for yet - I'll try to find out. The older system was the PST2 which stood for Porsche System Tester 2.
