GT3 Mk 1 Park Assist


Recommended Posts

Can any one assist with determining if it is possible to retrofit Park Assist into a Mk1 996 GT3? I understand the control module is under the left seat, there are 4 sensors in the rear bumper and the wiring will need to be run from the cabin to the rear as it will not be in situ. if I understand the ECU (?) will need to be set for Park Assist, my first question is can the Mk1 GT3 ECU (?) handle Park Assist? Thank you, Great Site. I am not yet convinced that i want to depart from an original spec, but parking will be tight end to end in the garage. I will use a bump stop on the floor as I reverse in and the aural warning would be extra protection.

:welcome: ...and thank you for donating.

Of course the ParkAssist was not on option on the GT3 Mk1.

It could likely be done but would be a bit of work.

The problem (as I see it) is that each Porsche gets a custom harness - based on the options the car was ordered with. So, you are missing the 3 harness pieces that get the signal from the back bumper though the chassis to the control box and then on to the instrument cluster (speaker).

The rear most harness can be purchased and would replace the existing one with the license plate lights. The other two would likely have to custom fabricated and then run through the car.

Loren. Thank you. I have from a US wrecker purchased the ParkAssist, bumper (US model in pieces to see where the sensors went) "rear main wiring loom" and "front wiring loom" all from the same car. From the photos I can see I will get the sensors and rear harness. Over time I will see if it is possible to dummy this set up to work. This may prove to be an expensive experiment; I will let you know. By the way I have a copy of the "The 911 GT3: A passion for motor sport" (Mk1 GT3) I will scan and send it through.
