4 stalk harness

Hi Pdwight,
New to site and was interested in a wiring harness for a 4 stalk steering column upgrade I want to do on my 2000 Boxster S (RHD). Does your harness do away with putting together the various VW connectors/wires as in 101 thing to do on Porsche Boxster book?
I have the 4 stalk switch with cruise control etc and am looking for simple plug & play type harness which seems to be what you have?

Yes, these are basically premade versions of the harness described in the 101 project book.

Also, for the guys in the UK/AU above... not taking away from what Pdwight is doing as he's certainly making a great product and has pages of great reviews here to attest to that... but there's also an EBay seller in the UK who makes the same thing (and a cruise control version also). With the current exchange rates they work out to be about half the price.

Installed Dwight's nice cable about a year ago and bought a Durametric and got OBC activated. However, nothing on the dash. Retry with Durametric said already activated.

So this week I installed the 3-blink turn signal upgrade and decided to check my obc wiring at the same time. For a while now I've owned a complete 996 dash wiring harness (must weigh 100 lb) and was able to track down the obc wiring in that to enable me to verify the pin connections, in case I'd miswired the dash connector--I hadn't.

Anyway, after getting everything back together obc now works and I'm really happy.

Moral to the story? Guess it's possible to not get that gray connector (mine's 2001) correctly reattached to the cluster ... or perhaps I didn't get the black connector block back into the gray holder correctly. My car is manual trans and there's only one other wire in the gray connector--don't know what it is but saw no other problem during the year not having gray connector correct.

3-blink works, too, but it was a big hassle ...obc activation was a piece of cake in comparison... just don't be confused by suggestions you need to remove steering wheel. Obc lever is separately removable from the rest, so you can just bolt it on to your existing configuration.

I had a similar problem originally

Check all your connectors on the back of your instrument cluster...I cant remember which one it was but one was not plugged all the way in.....it looked like it was....but was not.

Also be carefull with the instrument cluster wiring connectors....mine started disintegrating as I was removing them and reinstalling them

Hi Dwight,

I sent you an email I would like to purchase your wiring harnesses for the 4 stalk too. I have a MY03 Base as well.

Thank you,
David

Dwight,
I sent you a PM asking if you're still making the harnesses.
Thanx,
