Hi folks, I read somewhere that under the passenger seat is a fuse for the alarm that is sometimes the reason for alarm not working. There are 2 black boxes, a small and larger one but can't see s fuse to check??
Any help would be great thanks.

Thought this was going to be an insurance black box in a Porsche question. Figured that would be an interesting challenge.

It would probably have got more of a response too. Title must be too boring for people to bother with. Should have put "Black box" nsfw.

According to the thread above there is a blue blade fuse sticking out of one of the black boxes.

The thread also confirms what you have read somewhere about the alar control box being under the passenger seat.
