Porsche PIWIS 2 V18.15 V17.500 Free Download

A forced PDK update is required when a vehicle possesses the Q033 ROM and an open campaign update is not visible via the PIWIS tool. This procedure will update the PDK to a Q061 or newer ROM. This update is required to run the latest PDK OTS maps with custom features such as faster shift speeds, sequential shifter stalk, dual paddle to neutral, no kickdown, and no creep. These features would otherwise not be possible running the Q033 ROM.

Applicable Model/Year

2013-2016 Porsche 981 Cayman and Boxster (Base, S, GTS) w/ PDK Transmission

2012-2016 Porsche 911.1 NA Carrera (Base, S, GTS) w/ PDK Transmission

2014-2016 Porsche 911 Turbo and Turbo S w/ PDK Transmission

Note: The update process does take some time (30 to 45 minutes), so it is important to have a battery charger (10A to 12A recommended, or a charger with a “flash” setting will work) on the car’s battery during this process. It would also be a good idea to keep a charger on the PIWIS II computer as well.

NOTE: BEFORE PROCEEDING, ACCESSPORT MUST BE UNINSTALLED FROM VEHICLE.

Porsche PIWIS 2 Forced PDK Update Procedures:

1.Connect a battery charger to the car’s battery, put the key in the “ON” position (engine off), and turn on the PIWIS II tool. The Car Diagnostic Tool PIWIS II will need to be connected to the OBD II port at his point as well.
2.At the main menu on the PIWIS II, select DIAGNOSTICS >> 911 >>> 991. Your selection may vary if you have a Boxster/Cayman.
