Alarm Control Unit under seat (how to work)

Recommended Posts

I am in need of replacing the Alarm Module under the seat of my 1997 Porsche Boxster 986. I believe the part number is 99661826007. I plan to buy it from autoatlanta.com (http://www.autoatlan...26007-srch.html). Or perhaps anyone know of a better and cheaper place to get it from online? (USA preferred)

I heard from a friend thay it should come with a key for work-guarantee. But all of the module I find does not have a key. I have read somewhere that without a key in the kit, there will be some kind of reprogramming needed for this part to function and to start the car. (Or perhaps anyone know where I can get the complete kit with key online?)

Can anyone kindly give me more information on how I could make this part work for my particular vehicle? Kindly be specific/step-by-step so I can instruct my local import-car shop (not official porsche shop because they do not accept when I bring in the part) on how he could do it with minimized errors and not waste money. I just wanted to make sure that everything will be in order before I continue with the purchase of the module. I just dont want to waste money in the order if it would only be an expensive paperweight.

I know this is the best place to get tons of information from very knowledgable porsche enthusiasts. Any input is greatly appreciated.

Kindly keep me posted guys. Thank you guys in advance!

I have never seen an alarm control box come with a key.

The new box will need to be programmed to your car and your keys. To do this you will need the IPAS codes and a Porsche PST2 or PIWIS tester.

You will also need the unique 40 digit key codes for all keys (up to 4). If you do not have the codes or if the old module is not able to be read from -- then you will have to buy new key(s) and program them.

There is no other or easy way... sorry.
