Question about 2002 Porsche Boxster

Open Question

PCM Radio not working

I have a Boxster with a PCM radio, navigation, CD and Tape. after jumping the car the Navigation and radio were dead. I checked the fuses, and replaced a burned out fuse. Currentyl the  radio, CD and tape are not working, but the navigation is working. I checked the fuse box and all the fuses look good. I was told by a friend that some of these radios have a fuse behind the radio. Is this true? How does one access the rear of the radio to change this fuse

    Same thing happened to my nav system. But the manual says, without warning, that you can jump the battery to charge a dead battery? And followed exactly the instructions. Possible that an electrical circuit was damaged. Dealer says can onoy replace. Who makes this radio nav system? Who repairs it? If a Becker system they will repair. Is it Siemens or waht?



    There should have been a warning in the manual. And this should have been fused protected. Sounds like Porsche has a design flaw?

    Have a 2007 Boxster and battery was dead. My wife touched the wrong terminal with the jump box. AMP fuse was blown. Replaced it and still no radio display. Everything else on car appears fine.

  1. Some radio's do have a fuse in the back. If you have the abilty it may be worth a look.

You can recover the radio's serial code from the radio display and then find the code using the following online algorithm: <A HREF="http://www.a2dvoices.com/realitycheck/porsche/">http://www.a2dvoices.com/realitycheck/porsche/</a>

2007 XL7. Why doesn't the information center work?


XL7 not XL-7 (the dash matters big time)
i'll guess its a dash.7
REDUX
in your post you said fuses are good (tested too)
have you checked and reseated the connectors on the OBJECTS that fail>?? (that is free to do)

we now learn many things fail on car,
even HEAD LIGHTS?????
and no statement of what works. in total!
does car drive perfect night and day?????
just a clue here, and win big. huh>?

I can't drive your car and see all those many things failing,& that are. ok .. and what does not fail....

but this car has CAN-bus (or the like)
a NETWORK for sure, and bus structured.

and does not work like some 1990 Vitara.
at all, not even close to same. (forget them...)
it's a BUS system.
each switch you throw sends a command on the bus.
it's failing I bet because of communication errors
that you fail to see because you did not use a real scan tool at the time of failure.
it must be scanned while failing !

cant fix it if its not broke,...(unless you drive
scan and log data. like i do all the time for all intermittent of any kind....)



does it fail engine running?
is running battery voltage at 13.3 to 15vdc
if voltage is low all computers in car will go nuts. (same with your cell phone)
this is a fact and what i check first?
valid battery voltages first.
2nd after fuses, (done already)
then scan it. using a real scan tool
not some relic.
a real tool can see all CAN buss errors
U codes top the list.

P1,p2, p3 and B codes too.... all seen.
failing.

you can buy tools
rent tools
or get the car scanned failing at any ASE shop.
car parts store may have junky or relic tools.
(i can name 10 that are)
some tools only do old federal P0xxx codes. say some old 1996 tool.

try a real shop and win. really

System memory may have been erased/lost due to extended loss of power. System may have to be reprogrammed to effectively work. Do you have the programming CD? If so, check owners manual for programming procedures

2007 gmc yukon navigation problems


Did you ever figure out this problem that you were having? I have an 07 Yukon and it sounds like the navigation is still on too when I shut it off. I haven't had the battery go dead on me yet, but I'm hoping that it doesn't happen too as I just purchased it. Let me know if you found anything out, I would greatly appreciate it!

Your radio/nav system needs a code. Go the your dealer's parts department , give them the VIN of your car( should be free $0). Punch in the code through the car radio and your radio/nav system should work right away.

2003 BMW CI Convertable Radio/CD Problem


Had the same problem with my '03 330xi. Navigation worked fine but radio and CD did not work at all. I opened the fuse box located in the glove compartment to check the three fuses associated with the navigation system and radio. #7, #39, and #41. All three fuses were intact so I put them back in. I then put the key into the ignition, turned it to position 2 and miraculously the radio came to life. I guess it acted as some type of reset?
