Hi everybody

 

I have never used a forum before and I don't know how it works exactly so I am hoping I don't break any rules here

 

I just bought a 2009 Carrera but the navigation is not installed. 

I want to install the Navigation but I am not really sure what parts I'm missing. I took it to a Porsche dealership and they told me that I need to buy the entire PCM for 5K. I read somewhere that you only need to buy the Nav module where the disk is and the antenna but I don't know if this is true or not.

 

Any advice?/

 

Thanks in advance

So I retrofitted Nav and cd changer into my wife's 2008 997.1 C4S . This was in 2009 when the car was bought new and even still had the temporary paper plates on it. You should not need to replace the PCM. You just need a lot of parts, a lot of time, and the dealer to set coding in the car to say you now have Nav. Suncoast and @Loren were great resources to me at the time but I also had the electronic parts manual which told me pretty much everything I needed to know.

Just realized this was for a 997-2. They switched to touch screen, etc, that year, right? So with that said, I can't speak with much intelligence around what is/isn't possible.

      The navigation dvd drive in my 2006 997.1 C4S has failed. It will not eject the dvd. I want to remove the drive unit in order to attempt a repair or, if necessary, replace it. My problem is that I have been unable to remove the plastic piece that covers the dvd drive and audio amp.  Porsche said "it just drops down." I have pushed, pulled, and cursed at the cover but it will not budge. I hesitate to use a tool as a lever for fear of breaking the cover.
      Do I need to eat more Wheaties so I can  pull harder on the cover, or am I just missing a simple solution?

      The left door key switch on my 00’ 996 c4 will not lock or unlock. I took the handle and bracket out of the door frame. I was told what usually breaks is the cylinder but nothing appears to be broken. I don’t want to buy a new key so simply replacing the bracket isn’t an option. Is there a straight forward solution or do I need a specialist??
       
      Any my feedback would be much appreciated thanks!

      I am upgrading my PCK 3.0 to a Pioneer NEX 8400 and I am trying to hook up my existing Sirius XM antenna and GPS antenna There are 3 Fakra connectors on back. Blue, Black (I think this is the FM ) and yellow. Can anyone tell me what color connector goes to what? I also have another question. Is there anyway to stop the PCM error about the missing head to go away?

      Hello everyone, I am new to the forum. I own a 98, bone stock, manual Carrera and here is my attempt at scattering the clouds over 996. Hope you'll like & share.

      Just posted a docu. on my completed  02 996 M96 3.6 l engine rebuild for a gorgeous C4 cab barn find, I bough back in August 17 as roller with complete engine (Head&Case failure).

       It  is not about performance upgrades or how it should be done. Is about the process to get it done with very details on the critical steps for the hands-on engineer.
       
      The car  drives fantastic now, and if it breaks I will be confidently enough to spend the needed money and time to order  on the new hard parts  (Nickies, rods, heads, etc.... For now I did not spend anything other than on a high-mileage used 997.1 donor engine  and a couple of 996 cases with paired pistons/rings from engines with other type of failures). 
       
      I wish I had an alike docu. when I started - so I share it here, and hopefully  it is useful for someone who wants to bring a M96 996 3-chain engine back to life .
