Retrofit of heated steering wheel - Panamera
On this job we assisted the customer to upgrade to a 2015 Panamera Turbo by fitting a newer version of the Multi Function Steering wheel with the heating option.
The job involved swapping the steering module as well as the multi function steering wheel - followed by re-coding the vehicle order and inputing the activation codes to enable the functions.
Addition of Bluetooth music player and mobile phone functionality to 9*7 vehicles and Cayennes
We have performed this upgrade a few times where customers have purchased a third party Bluetooth streaming device, such as those offered by Dension or on Ebay, that integrate with the CRR 23 or CDR 30 head unit.
Once the unit is installed and correctly connected to the MOST ring, it usually just needs a few coding options changing to allow it to successfully communicate with the car.
Diagnosis and re-calibrating the front spoiler 991 Turbo
This job was a bit of a head-scratcher. The front spoiler on a recently replaced Turbo bumper would not deploy correctly. Consistently showing the same fault after replacing a number of parts. After reverting to basics using the diagnostic computer, a multi meter, and some manual movement of the spoiler we ascertained that the cable connecting to the lateral sensor was broken inside its protective sheathing. With the new part installed a quick re-calibration enabled both front and back spoilers to deploy again as required
Re-programming used immobiliser and DME module 996
A customer purchased a non-runner as a project and was having problems getting the vehicle started. Used modules had been purchased from different vehicles so the IPAS security numbers did not match - this prevented the car from starting. The customer posted the modules to us and advised us of the vehicle spec. We were then able to extract the IPAS codes from the two modules and match the security numbers up so the immobiliser would allow the car to start, we then re-programmed the DME to the correct specification of vehicle and returned the modules to the customer whose car started immediately. This option proved cheaper than buying a used ECU/DME kit.
