Exclamation Official Escort Service Bulletin for late model Porsche installations

RE: Porsche (recent models of Cayenne, 911 and Panamera)

The ONLY source of power that is acceptable on recent models is located in one of the terminals on the BOTTOM row of the interior driver side fuse block. If the installer pulls off the fuse block and "untwists" the wire harness and removes some of the wrapping, they will notice that there is a black approx 12 gauge wire that runs right up the center. This is connected directly to the bottom row of terminals (usually a few are used and a couple are open). For the best connection, we recommend that the power wire is soldered directly to the back of an open terminal and then insulated as necessary. Using a fuse tap is not recommended due to the possibility of an intermittent connection.

All other 12V lines on these vehicles are run through the "Can-Bus" and are computer controlled. The voltage and current are variable and not stable for powering the Passport custom installed system.

Escort Radar customer service is available from 9am-5:00pm Eastern Time Mon-Fri at 1-800-543-1608 or you can fill out a repair form and we will contact you.
