Anybody have MOST loop for bypassing existing CDC or Part #?


Recommended Posts

Maybe somebody has this part from a mObridge kit sitting around that they never used? I'm looking for the part referred to as "MOST loop for bypassing existing CDC," that's included in some of the mObridge shipments. Based on my searches it sounds like I just need this part (or one like it) to reconnect my MOST ring.

I had some spare time this weekend and decided to free up a bit of frunk space that was being wasted by a non-functioning (and no longer missed) CDC-4 multi-disk player. I got the the player out and pulled out the connectors - only to get the dreaded PCM: "SYSTEM ERROR! Amplifier, CD Changer not available" message.

After a pulling the PCM fuses and seeing that a "re-discovery" wasn't going to clear things up I did a search and found this thread: <<http://forums.rennlist.com/rennforums/porsche-cayenne-forum/405546-system-error.html>>

It sounds like my MOST was set up as a ring going through the CDC-4 (oh joy). It also sounds like what's "needed [is] to link the two fibres together to complete the loop. One was supplied with your mobridge unit. Whoever installed it did not know what they were doing. Call Scott at mObridge and ask his advice. Its an easy fix if you can find the part. it looks link a plastic ring with a connector at its root."

Unfortunately, I didn't buy a mObridge (although I am considering it for fathers' day). Does anybody know the part # that I can order from Suncoast or pick up from my local P-dealer, or do I need to go 3rd party like mObridge? Does anyone have one sitting around that I can talk them out of or buy?

Thanks in advance!

Thanks Cassiebox. The part came this week.

It wasn't immediately obvious how to snap it on. I had to stare at it for 10 minutes and tug on some parts to figure out there was just an insert that was blocking me from snapping it on (the back double barrel part sticking out to the right on the picture above). Now I'm back up and running again.

      I have an intermittent static issue. It seems to originate from my center speaker near the clock on my dashboard. When the suspension is lowered it it more prevalent but it also happens before I even start my car. There could be weeks between hearing it and other times it will go on for hours. I suspect I have a loose wire in the amplifier? Is this an issue anyone else has ran into?

      Greetings all... Over in the Cayenne section there is a post about the PCM System error: UNKNOWN UNKNOWN UNKNOWN UNKNOWN UNKNOWN UNKNOWN UNKNOWN when starting the system up... no ultimate resolution but the consensus for the cause is a break in the line... I have a 2004 Turbo Cab and installed a MoBridge system and have had ZERO issues.  My Parents have a 2004 Turbo Cab where the previous owner went cheap with either the Nav-Tv adapter, the installation, or BOTH (But when you get an otherwise pristine Turbo Cab with 28,000 miles for $42K, you don't nickel and dime).  The installer unplugged the CD changer and pulled the plug off of the fiber optic wires (that plugged into the changer) using a line break splice to plug the two wires together instead of plugging in a loop per the NAV-TV instructions.  I bought both male and female loops so that I could put the vehicle cables into a new plug and install the other plug with the loop.  Since the issue isn't resolved (but the audio works so this has to be the "break") I have to assume it isn't getting a good connection.  Upon closer examination, the fiber optic cable ends on the loops are gold metal and shorter than the plastic ends in the car loop.  This end difference prevents the plastic ends from seating far enough into the plug to make a good connection.  Any advice on how to either replace the ends, or a part number for the original Porsche plug that I could match with a different loop?  I am thinking that Porsche probably have a plug that goes into the CD Changer MOST connector for vehicles that don't have the changer installed...Thanks!!

      Hey guys and gals I have a 2010 Porsche Cayenne base and I’m having trouble connecting my IPhone 6S Plus to my PCM running software version 1.47. Now I know that Apple phones don’t accept the sim access profile, but I can’t figure out how to switch the PCM over to Hands free profile. I went to my local Porsche dealer here in Tucson, AZ today and  I told them that I had read online that they should be able to switch my PCM from SAP to HFP, but after 1 1/2 hours of trying they said that the couldn’t find how to switch it over. Any suggestions? Can it be changed using a durametric? Should I talk to another dealer in Phoenix? Any suggestion or insight will help. Thanks in advance.

      I replced the CDR23 with Seicane Android HU.  It comes with Canbus adapter and I purchaed MOST adapter with it to make it work with factory Bose amp.
      The unit powers up fine, but the MOST adapter needs to have power to work.  Any suggestion where can I connect the three wires listed in the pic to?  I assume the main socket that was connected to the CDR23 has power, but don’t know which wire is which.  How easy would it be to get power from lighter adapter aux?  I am planning to replace that lighter adapter with USB port for the HU as well.
       
      Thanks

      Can someone validate whether or not the dealer ACTUALLY has to install the PCM 3.0 Nav Update?  Unless there is some voodoo that they have to do with the PIWIS, why do they need 2 hrs of labor to insert a disc and press "enter" a few times??  Seems a waste if you can read directions...  Thanks for any help.
