Hello, 
Does anyone know how to find the radio security code other than removing the actual multimedia console? I found this website here but not sure if it really works. My concern is when I change the battery (which is dying) how to gain access to the multimedia center again should it require a security code. I am the third owner and have found nothing written in any of the vehicle documents. Any advice would be appreciated.

From the Lost Radio Code FAQ...

 

"Can you give me a code for my PCM?
These units are manufactured jointly by Siemens and Becker, and the only place where you can get the codes required is from the dealer/OPC. The PCM’s require two codes, the ICS/Siemens code and a Becker code. The ICS is the first code requested.
Sorry, the only place you can get a PCM code is from a dealer/OPC."

Why not use the cigarette lighter socket and apply a 12v supply before changing the battery?

I've had the battery disconnected many times and didn't need any code for the radio 2006 ctt. 

I wouldn't stress about it!

      I have a 2009 957 3.6l v6 Cayenne. The battery was dead a few days ago so I replaced it. It now starts up just as it should but when run a diagnostic it says the alternator voltage is high reading 14.72. I’m assuming I need to replace the alternator to remedy this. I can’t find any information about replacing the alternator. Has anyone attempted this? It looks like it might be straightforward  but my concern is whether or not the intake manifold has to be removed in order to get clear access. If anyone has any insight on this I would greatly appreciate it.

      Installed a new alpine radio to replace my factory Porsche radio I kept the factory Bose sound system and the factory steering wheel controls still work!
      I think it looks pretty nice, very ecstatic about the new radio look.
      Easy to do

      When I turn the radio on, all it says is 'wait'. How do I get to the 'code' screen?
      I have a type 4462
      Serial # 15077232
      What would the code be to unlock radio?
      Any help would be appreciated, thank you!

      The sunroof control switch (SCS)...(see picture1) kept popping out so I had to get the cover off which required removal of “bug eyes“ which are part of a Infrared Passenger Compartment Monitor System  (IPCMS) to expose the holding screws(HS). Is this a one sensor system and this (picture2) Looks fine or there is a lens missing. I’ll have to check and see if I can set off the alarm while inside the  car but most of these systems don’t work if incomplete...
      Any fellow enthusiast recognize or have had opportunity to see this removed...normal or not.
      Thank for your responses in advance(TFYR)....have to make sure my Porschease is spot on (or its abreviatitis...an obsession with having an abbreviation of letters for everything on a car.  It’s actually money savings because if you had to pay for every time they printed PDK out in it’s full name the cars and parts would be even more expensive.
       
      Quick true/false question. Not driving your car will ruin sparks plugs. True or False?

      Hello. This is my first time posting as this is my first issue with my 2006 Cayenne S and this is also my first Porsche. The vehicle had an aftermarket radio in it when I purchased it and I changed that radio for another one that supported Apple CarPlay. both units are made by pioneer and after looking at the backs of them it appears to be plug and play. I changed everything out and fired it up and everything was great. No issues or errors and the sound worked fine and calls worked fine. The previous installer used only twisted ends and electrical tape to secure the wiring so I took the wiring apart and used wire nuts to make sure nothing came apart while it was being installed and for longevity. After starting the car back up, I received a brake proportioning fault and an oil pressure fault and it told me workshop fault as well. I pulled fuse 40 as I heard it resets the system and plugged it back in. The brake proportioning fault is gone but the oil pressure fault remains. I double checked my wiring work to make sure that I was not missing anything and nothing had come back apart. Everything is indeed attached and plugged in. 
       
      Now that I have finished my long-winded story, was this fault caused because I knocked something loose or because I left the fiber optic cabling unplugged for too long. I noticed that there was a red light coming from the input and of the fiber optic cabling a couple of times while I was rewiring it. Do I just need to reset this system using a better method or do you think something is wrong with it? 
       
      Any help would be appreciated and I intend on donating to this forum and website as it seems to be a true source of knowledge and help for the DIY Porsche enthusiast. Thank you in advance and I look forward to your responses.
