How To: Install Double DIN to 987

Recommended Posts

I found the connects facia kit a perfect fit, with no foam pads at all.

But then used the correct Porsche support bracket from the PCM

The centre hole was also the ISO double din size for a Pioneer.

I would suggest your cheap head unit is not an exact ISO double din if you are getting a dremel to the bezel.

I couldn't get on with the Pioneer app radio. I really wanted TomTom Navigation, DAB and a less clunky interface.

Can anyone confirm which ISO DIN wiring harness adaptor I will need form my 08 Cayman. The car has a basic sound system so no amp or bose. Think I am going to have a bash at fitting an Pioneer SPH-DA120 myself after being quoted £175 labour by my local car audio firm!

Just installed my pioneer SPH-DA 120 and it works! Great guide, would never had done it with out the step by step walk though. Only 1 issue is that it doesn't turn off with the ignition ?, I've locked the car and waited incase there's a delay other wise some one please tell me what I did wrong. I'm a bit of a novice with electrics

You must have connected both head unit wires up to a permanent live, you need to run one wire to a switched live in the fuse box.

I chose a spare slot which was above 5amp, are slots in the fuse box different? How do I know which is a switched live?

This is a really great write up, thank you! I am trying to replace my CDR-24 to an aftermarket HU, and it needs a feed for Speed Pulse, which after some research is related to VSS.

From the link you added to Pelicans pinout diagram it refers to pin A1 as "Speed dependent Volume Control Input", is this the same as Speed Pulse and could I use this?

Another one to say thanks for the write up and pictures. I’ve installed my double din HU I bought from fellow inmate Tony Daniel. Only thing I didn’t do is put a wire in to dim the unit when the head lights are switched on. I couldn’t tell which wire to attach a scotch block connector. Also I read somewhere (can’t find it anywhere now) regarding the - - - - display under the speedo which used to read which radio station was on, I’m sure somebody posted up how to get rid of it. Any ideas?

I found out the other day that it should be the grey wire with the blue stripe - can’t remember how or where I found it but I made a note. If you fancy trying it and letting me know that would be great. Otherwise I will just keep turning the display off at night !
