    Using my spare key for the first time

    Hi Guys - hope someone can advise me on the following?

    I bought my 997.2 GTS new - nine years ago.  Obviously it came with two keys.  I'd always used the same key (Key1) until this week when I dropped it and a part fell out.  I put the part back in and it works fine, but the part is a bit loose so I decided to use my spare key (Key2) for the very first time.  I'd never done this with any of my previous Porsches as I've never kept a car this long before!

    The new key works fine - except that a few changes occurred.  The TPMS now reads in 'Bar' instead of 'PSI' and the doors automatically lock every time I start the car?  Just to check, I tried the old key and these changes don't happen.

    This leads me to believe that the new key requires progamming?

    Any advice would be very much appreciated...Smiley

    Re: Using my spare key for the first time

    I think preferences like units, door locking behaviour as you’ve described are associated with individual keys.  This is so two people sharing the car can get in and it all works to their liking as long as they use their own key. All you need to do is change these settings to your liking when you use the second key once and it should be good from then on.

    Each key has its settings, just change them to your preference and the key will store them.

    yes, it's frustrating as each key has its own riff, drives me boo boo


    Re: Using my spare key for the first time

    You can normally changes these parameters in the PCM menu and then save them. the key will follow the settings you put and keep it in records. kiss

    Re: Using my spare key for the first time

    Finally found the sections in the Manuals which have fixed my problems with the new key... kiss

    Solved one problem with the 'User's Manual' and the other problem with the 'PCM Manual'

    I'd hardly looked at either since I bought this car - The problem with owning Porsches for over 40 years is that you think you know it all..!!

    Thanks again for your suggestions... wink
