I am assuming you mean your 07 C2S. What harness, wheel and module do you have? They may just not know how to do it. My 997.2 has a 07 997.1 steering wheel. Three dealers told me it cannot be done and then one said they will try. Guess what? It worked.

Right. My 997.1 that came with a standard wheel. I may call a few other dealers in the AZ or SoCal to get their opinion. They were referring to a wiring harness and steering wheel controller for a car that would have come with a MF wheel. As stated on a number of related breads, maybe they just don’t like this kind of work.

thanks

There is a module and a harness inside the steering wheel itself, but if you purchased the wheel off EBay it probably was there. The harness will have an orange, yellow and green plug inside. The module is the half moon piece directly right of the hole. Did your wheel have those when you purchased it?

If you have the same setup it sounds like a lazy dealer. There is no official document that I am aware of that they follow. It just needs to be a seasoned tech who really knows his way around a PIWIS.

Have your dealer call Chris Brown at Porsche of North Houston. He has done this several times and knows his stuff.

Thx doclouie.

It seems clear that this can be accomplished.
I’ll take this project up again later. For now, I put the orig ‘skinny sport’ wheel back on.

Thanks again
