Je cherche 1 potentiometre son/volume sur autoradio BECKER PORSCHE CDR 220 . Merci de m'y aider si vous avez 1 tuyau ... Cdlt
I've had my Boxster S for a few years. It has a CDR220, Bose system with an amp, it has speakers in the dash, the doors, behind the seats and a sub woofer along with CD changer in the front. It also has a Parrot Mki9200.
These units have worked well for years but have suddenly stopped working. It seems that the Parrot system isn't getting any power, the radio and CD changer work fine.
I have taken the radio out and checked for obvious loose cables but cant find anything adrift. I remember that the CD changer unit wasn't used and I wonder if the power that was used for this was somehow changed to power the Parrot system? I found a blue box under the radio, but cant see how it gets powered as there are no loose/spare cables.
I wonder if anyone has any experience with these systems? Any help would be warmly received!

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.
