SOURCE: Outside Temperature display
If you do not have the On-board computer (option M659), you can still get the outside
temperature display to work. All the electronics of the On-board computer are included in
every Boxster (except some early 1997 models did not have the temperature sensor
installed), but if you don't order the option, you don't get the stalk on the steering
column to choose which feature to display. The On-board computer functionality displays
below the digital speedometer readout underneath the tachometer.
To activate the temperature display, you will need the Porsche System Tester 2 computer to tell the car that it possesses the On-board computer, even though it doesn't. Since you probably don't have this $4000 device, but your Porsche service department does, this will require a visit to your dealer. It will take about five minutes of your service department's time, but you should call ahead. Some service departments will charge for the service.
Using the Porsche System Tester 2, follow these steps:
