Just had my dealer enable OBC this morning!

But the technician warned me before they activiated it. He knew what i was trying to do because he just turned it on for another Boxster recently. He told me that it may void my warranty if you change the wire or do anything to the electrical systems. I was wondering if it is worth to do it if anything goes wrong.
Just my thought!

But anyway Yosief is Boxsters hack's hero!

Yada Yada Yada - they "have to" say that...

imagine if the mechanics and dealers were actually hack-friendly? Even better, imagine if PCNA was hack-friendly?! That would be shocking and it would hurt their profitability since fewer people would pay big bucks for the option.

With the BABBLERS (and many other Boxster owners), Hacks-r-us!

See you at the May 19th Hack Party? (Location TBD)

Raymond, what did they charge you? Did you just make an appointment to have your OBC activated? Which dealer did you go to?

Re: Just had my dealer enable OBC this morning!

My salesman did not charge me and It is in Fremont.
I was in doubt before i call him becasue OBC is an option when you order the car. He was kind of back off when i asked him to enable OBC with PST2. (He said: You can't enable it if you didn't order OBC) then i just told him to enable Outside Temp with PST2 instead and i insist that can be done on 01.
But the Mechanic really know what i am trying to do when i came in this morning, because he has done one before.

Good luck!

Hmmmmmmmmm... I was there last week and asked them. They referred my request to the PCNA rep. They said I should look for an answer in 4-5 weeks.

Re: Just had my dealer enable OBC this morning!

Some people have reported that their dealer couldn't figure it out. One guy managed to get the "menu path" that they need to use. Here it
is:

Control Module Search, Instrument Cluster, Country Coding, Boxster USA
(several screens), On Board Computer, With On Board Computer, Activate.

It might help if you take that with you to the dealer.

E-mail me and I can try to help you get it done...

but we can't "overwhelm" the dealership with requests.

Re: Just had my dealer enable OBC this morning!

Raymond, did you make an appointment with service, or did the salesman (which one) set it up? If you made an appointment, what did you ask for, who did you talk with?

I assume you have an 01.

Unfortunately, we will not be here the 19th. Staying in L.V., but want to be ready for the next hack party.

Thanks.
