Add steering wheel heating(Replace steering control module and clock spring)
Porsche only supplies ordered functions from the factory. If the old steering wheel does not have heating, the factory-equipped steering control module and clock spring hardware do not have heating control electric parts and clock spring heating power supply pins. Fortunately, we can replace the steering control and clock spring hardware with heating support and activate the functions if needed.
For adding the heating function, a heated steering wheel and the steering wheel electronics control unit (Clock spring) must also be ordered and activated (VIN-specific enabling code) by PIWIS. For this upgrade, you will need your VIN number to purchase all active codes (997/987 no active code needed).
If the equipped steering wheel is of the basic style (only with PDK buttons) or the control module parts number is 7PP.953.568.AR, then you must replace it with a multifunction support steering control module hardware (Parts number #958.652.568.14) and code it.
1, Replace the steering control module (including the clock spring) with a heated support, 991.1/981/958.1 heated and multifunctional support steering control module (including the clock spring) with the parts number 958-652-568-14.
997.2 Heating and Multifunction Support Steering Control Module Parts Number: 997-613-299-02, Heating Support Clock Spring Parts Number: 955-652-611-22
2, Buy the heating and multifunction enable code, which is related to the VIN.
3, Dealership install new steering control module and coding by PIWIS activate multifunction and heating, Steps can be found here https://gpsadapter.us/blogs/installation-guide/add-heating-and-multifunction. Installing new steering control module without coding will result in many error messages in instrument display, as many ECUs need to communicate with the steering angle sensor built-in steering control module.
4, Gpsadapter must be installed to the new steering wheel.
**You need to replace the steering control module and use PIWIS to code it. You also need to inquire about the ordered functions code (on-board computer, cruise control) in the Porsche dealership system by VIN, and calibrate the steering control module with PIWIS.
