Hi Carl and welcome to the forum.  Always good to see someone getting their first Porsche.  Especially a 911  :agree:

Hopefully we'll be able to help you sort your problem.  Meantime it would be nice to see a few pictures of your 911.  Feel free to create a thread for your car in the Gallery>Our readers 911's section at the top of the forum.

I have managed to find a wiring manual for the 996 which may be helpful.  I havent looked through it yet, but there might be some clues in the there. I posted it in the Technical Reference Section of the forum.  Have a look here:

That's really nice of you and thank you for your help. It's like swahili to me though! She's in with the local Porsche specialist now so I hope they go easy on me.

All the best  :P

I know what you mean.  Electrical diagrams see like a complete foriegn language......  Hopefully they will fix her for you without too much trouble.  Personally, I would consider getting rid of the standard factory unit anyway.  There are lots of aftermarket systems that are better IMO.

Looking forward to seeing some pictures of her in the Gallery  :happy013:
