Need Help With Unknown Button Function

Recommended Posts


I'm the new owner of a 1999 Porsche 996 and I have a problem. There is a button on the lower part of the center console on the left side  that I don't know what it is for and need some help. It is a round rocker two position switch located where the driver's heated seat button would be. Across from it is a plugin jack for what appears to be a MP3 player or earphones connection. The mounting panel matches the interior and is made for these two items. Heated seats are not listed on the build sheets and I don't notice any changes when I switch the switch on. If anyone has any ideas I would like the help.

Thanks in advance!

      Working on the delete. moved all the stuff around to get the radio and climate control up top. got the part (986-552-113-02). The part shows Boxster 986 (1997-2004) (up Through 99). I have a 2001 986 S.

      The holes/studs don't seem to line up... Has anyone else seen this and found a work-around? I'm curious about rattles and squeaks even though it looks like the middle console will hold it down some. I've squished and shoved this thing as far back as I think it will go.

      (driver's side has the carpet panel removed. i think a short-shifter is called for. adding some electronics to put a USB charger and AUX in the arm-rest console)
