HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Mon Jul 08, 2013 3:56 pm by Admin


For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.
The purpose of this sticky is to explain the "Advanced Search" function because it is much more powerful and is the best choice when researching information.

When you log on to the site a list of options is shown in a line at the top of the page. One option is labelled "Search", use this option (NOT the search box lower down on the right).

After you click on the upper search option, a drop down box appears. At the bottom of this box is a radio button marked "Advanced …

Old interior getting ripped out bit by bit(Note the steering wheel wrap, soft thick quality leather, really makes a difference with the feel of the wheel... just don't notice anything else.)
EDIT: Check out the 1024x768 color dash touch screen.

Rambling seat thread continues...

I have the rear floor carpet out and am about to do the front. I'm taking pictures of the progress for the hell of it and got two shots that show my LT1 computer placement and how flush it is under the dash, so I thought I's post them. I also found that Porsche made it very easy to unclip the gas pedal clip/pinch-ring with one finger, which was so very nice of them (clip and nylon washer pic below). Just thought I'd ramble/post:

The new carpet is black... I'm slowly moving it all to black and trying to remove as much poo as possible.

Yeah, that's a micro ATX motherboard with a gig. of mem. and a fast AMD processor in a huge case. I really have to buy/build a new case. The components on the inside are so much smaller than the case. It's setup to handle 2 dvd drives, 4 or more HDs, and a huge 120volt power supply... most of which I don't need/use... fast PC though. WFI, GPS, MP3... I really need to make it a quality setup.

I was under the car looking at things an saw all of the careful work for cooling the oil, fluid.... and the power. Just a reminder for those that haven't moved from 4 to 8 cylinders...

Yes, I had a cooling fan connection problem which I fixed but it took the engine above the safety valve pressure to let me know what was going on... and I got fluid all over the place. I should have cleaned up before I took the picture. Rolling Eyes

EDIT: I've been using a Delteq for years now anyway and I cleaned/sealed the Optispark so I don't ever need to worry about it anymore. I did leave a tiny opening at the bottom of the opti though for a tiny bit of air flow.

Seats purchased and installed. From 2003 996 40k miles

Found a set local at a great price and made the move.

We were able to get them in pretty easy.

Installation:
1) seat rails were the correct width
2) seat rail length were different, we had to build a simple bracket to mount the rails to the original bolt hole. As a note the left and right rail length are different so you need two different size brackets.
3) Hammer the front bolt holes on the rails flat
4) electrical, thanks to 944-LT1 for the diagrams, they were spot on.

We tried another option, being 6'5", headroom is an option.

Vorsche944, good job with the seats; they look great!!! Hammer the fronts flat huh, hmm.
Yes, 944-LT1's electrical data is just awesome.

Porch, that's a good little case but I have my PC all up and running with a micro ATX board (network, gps, mapping, MP3...). I think I'll just build a case for it after I get the new carpet in. The internals are really small, it's just that case that's huge but the one in your picture is a little too small. I'm removing the rear seats so I'll have room down there for a custom setup.

You will need to buy the switch/s for either side and then just wire them up per the diagram and the heaters should work. They dont have to be porsche switches. They can be any dual mode switches. I personally LOVE heated seats especially when its winter and the engines taking too long to heat up damnit.

I know i'm resurrecting an old thread, but I have the same seats and I believe they have heat and i'm trying to wire them, but I need some clarification on wiring the B1 B2 B3 B4 wires... I have a two way toggle switch, but i don't think theres a way to ground such a switch. Do I have to go and buy specifically a seat heater switch? I'd really appreciate the help, and thank you so much for sorting out the wiring! It worked perfectly for me! cheers

oh and i'd like to add that on the drivers side, the harness doesn't have wires 1 or 4.

You must also connect 3 and 6 properly as well for the seat heater to work. Terminal 6 grounds the seat elements whereas terminal 3 provides the +12vdc to the elements. Both are very mportant for the controlboard as well. The "B" terminals provide the interface control as follows:

B1 (YE/RE) is for high heat
B2 (YE/BK) is for off
B3 (YE/WT) is for low heat
B4 (BR) is ground

Ground at the switch is only for visual LED confirmation of high or low heat. If your switch does not have an LED (the porsche switches have 2), you do not need a ground wire to the switch.

So I did this install, and it worked, the only problem I have is the backrest tilt is not working? I hear it make 1 click sound but it does not move?

Also, on the passenger seat it was just plug and play but for some reason the backrest tilts forward but cannot tilt backward?

In my old seats the backrest tilt worked fine....

I have a 2001 996 that had partial power seats, just backrest power but now I installed full power 996 seats and im having issues with the backrest

So hook up 12 (+) to terminals 1, 1 (smaller), and 2 (smaller) and 12V (-) ground to terminals 2 and 3 (smaller) and it should all work.

The 26 pin connector is for mirror memory and crap like that....which you CAN hook up if you want to but would need the memory switch too.

LE, HH, HV, and LV are all motors. Looking at my diagram, each of these have 5 terminals number [1,2][1,2,3]. The big guys are the pos. and neg. to each motor. The other smaller 3 terminals are for hall effect sensors in the motor to tell it when its maxed out either way.

Everything to the left of the 26 pin connector in my diagram is for lumbar support.

Plug number 5 (the 9 pin connector) is for the switches on the seat.
The blue plug (LV and HH) is for longitudinal and rear height adjustments.
The natural colored plug (LO and LU) is for lumbar adjustments.
The black plug (LE and HV) is for back rest angle and front height adjustments.

The plugs coming from the car (which you dont have) were plugs 6 and 7. Everything else should be there.

Heat for the seats is also easy to hook up. I see two red/white wires in a plug in one of your pictures so you must have heated seats there. All you need is a dual mode switch (hi/off/lo) for it which are about $30 bucks a piece. The control unit (relay) and heater elements should already be in the seats. The plug that you show a picture of is for the heat as well.

Memory buttons

Post  Cobra64 on Sun Jan 06, 2013 11:23 pm

Just had a question for 944-LT1....

With that control module pictured, is it possible to configure the memory buttons as found on the doors of some Porsche models? They usually have 4 buttons, 1-2-3 (drivers) and M (Memory). With your help I was able to get the drivers seat operating correctly but sadly can't memorise the settings - would be a nice feature. I saw on a schematic that the memory switch module is really just a series of switches (& some had LEDS). So there doesn't appear to be any fancy circuitry which means I should be able to configure some push buttons.

Thanks,
Adrian.
