Where can i find a manual for the PCM Sat Nav on a Porsche (996)

If you don't have a Porsche dealer near you, check eBay for a Nav manual. Your car should have come with one though. Good luck!

The stereo just stopped working.

If you remove the pcm there is a small 10a fuse in the back, to remove the pcm remove both centre console side panels and turn the 4 (2 each side) allen screws 1/4 turn, also dont forget a small 6 or 7 mm screw on nearside of pcm that needs to be loosened. otherwise try a software reset by disconnecting the battery with ignition on and reconnecting after a couple of mins. hope this helps

Porsche PCM Radio & CD Changer Fault.

paul it really sounds as if that dealer is trying to stroke suggestion would to call porshe and find out who the district manager or manager of the stores in ur city or even county and tell him or her of ur problem... and how u feel about this problem.. and ask why a car would be returned to u in worse condition than when u took it there... its very possible that the change of the battery wasnt done correctly and may have blown ur ecu... id get in contact with the district service manager (dsm) as soon as possible..u paid alot of money for this car and for its service.. and should be entitled to quality work performance..

1995 911 car keys

Buy yourself a replacement key blank for the Porsche 911 993 - then simply take it to a key cutter and get it cut by them to match your existing key. Be aware that the blank is specific to the 993 variant and although some of the earlier models blanks are cheaper they will not work.

Hope that helps
