997.1 Convertible : Where to hide sat-track system & wirring?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I own a 2005 997.1 Car 2S Convertible.

I would like to put in a simple sattelite tracking system which works with a sim-card. By sending a text to this tracking device you get a reply with a link to see where the car is.

It also has an option with a 'relais' which can cut for example a fuelpump so the car stalls when stolen.

It's a reasonable small device but needs to be powered (wired) to feed it's internal battery.

Anyboy has any experience in this where to hide it?

And what could be wired to this releas to cut the engine?

It feels like this is not a DIY job?

Regards,

Tom

Attach to inside of front fender behind headlight. Use tool in toolkit to remove headlight carefully. Use some body gumbo to stick to fender. Wire directly into battery nearby. You can also install it behind the front bumper if the unit does not work under metal. Search this forum on how to remove bumper.

BTW, wired to cut power is not a good idea for safety reasons. It may be tripped accidentally while car is moving with somebody legitimate in the car. However, if you want to, then put a battery cut-off relay at battery but be prepared to have car towed to Porsche dealer after being tripped to reset computer.

      My 1999 911 Carrera started smoking at a streetlight. Very smelly blue smoke was coming from under the engine cover. I pulled over and popped the cover. Blue smoke was coming from somewhere under the engine (not the exhaust). The engine stopped very suddenly.
       
      We don't have a local Porsche dealer, but the Subaru dealer owns a bunch of 911s and he has a couple Porsche mechanics. I had it towed there.
       
      The C1 fuse ("Engine Electronics") was blown. They replaced it, but as soon as they turned the key, the "cam adjuster wiring harness" (I do not know what this is) began to smoke, and the fuse blew again.
       
      They disconnected the cam adjuster wiring harness (I don't know what this means, and neither did the service advisor), and the fuse stayed intact, and they got the car started. They were able to drive it out to the parking lot with no problems.
       
      They said I need a new cam adjuster wiring harness (again, no idea what this is), and this would require an engine out repair, which they could not do. They estimated this work at $5,000 to $6,000.

      Additionally, they did not know how drivable the car was with a disconnected cam adjuster wiring harness.
       
      So ... how bad is this?  (Service report image attached.)

      Hi everyone, I just got a set of gauges for a 2005 996. I'm building a simulator for PC and would like to wire the gauges to work with racing games. I am in need of the wiring diagrams for the cluster. If anyone has a picture or manual that can help me out it would be great! Looking for inputs, power, signal.

      Does anyone have a wiring diagram for the seat on a 2008/957 Cayenne which they can let me have?

      I’m trying to chase a fault where the passenger seat will motor up and down and the backrest will adjust forward and aft, but there is no response from the controls to move the seat unit forwards and backwards, or the four-way lumber support control.
       
      Thanks in anticipation...

      CEL came on, no missing or other noticeable engine anomaly.
      El cheapo ELM OBDII reader produced these codes:  Was able to extinguish CEL.
      P3104 Intake manifold air control solenoid - short to positive
      P0104 Mass or Volume Air Flow "A" Circuit Intermittent
      P0204 Injector 4 – circuit malfunction
      This suggests an intermittent wiring short.  Any ideas on where such might have occurred?
      Thanks in advance

      Hi Porsche Gurus
      I’m trying to troubleshoot a little issue I have that just my drivers door courtesy lights (and drivers sunvisor light but not sure if that’s different issue) don’t work, both the red and white ones and only the one door(rhd car) 
      now ive checked the common things like all the fuses and the wiring to see if they were damaged or corroded but they seem fine,
      The one thing I would like to check but can not find any info on is where or what is the switch or sensor that tells the lights that the door is open to turn the lights on? 
      If I can find that then that will at least eliminate all manual fixes that I can think of unless any of you have come across this before, if it’s something simple and I look like a fool for not thinking of it then I’m happy to be a fool as long as the lights work:)
      any help would be much appreciated 
      thanks 
      Stevie G
