After reading all the posts on this forum about the trunk beep volume reduction, I added it to the delivery checklist for my dealership to perform. The Taycan-trained master mechanic could not find anything about PIWIS configuration of this setting in the English-language service documentation. Fortunately, he is fluent in German, and was able to find some vague reference in the German documentation. That led him to the beep volume setting in PIWIS, with selections from 1 to 7, but no apparent way to save the setting. He was however able to completely turn it off. As an earlier post mentioned, beeping may still be enabled for an obstruction, but I haven't tested that.
@Genau - would you be able to find out exactly where that setting is in PIWIS? The forum would be eternally in your debt!

That was the Tysons Corner (Virginia) Porsche dealership -- not sure how I would pry the information out of them. But a friend's shop is getting a PIWIS soon and I'm sure he'll find the setting.

Sorry, I don’t understand. Didn’t they work on your car? Couldn’t you ask? I don’t think they’d think it was proprietary information.

They silenced the beeper as part of my pre-delivery checklist before I took ownership of the car. The salesman told me later about how their master mechanic used his German fluency to figure out the setting.

Or just bridge the circuit with a paperclip ;)

I unplugged the speaker myself over the weekend. A little tricky to make sure you don't lose any clips/introduce any rattles but the silence is wonderful!

Any luck finding that setting?

Any chance you could ask them for the correct method to silence the speaker? I'd love to silence mine.

Unplug it. Bridge connector if needed.

You can probably add a resistor in series with a speaker to make it quieter Alternatively, inject some insulation foam spray into the speaker? I haven't met a speaker which is not quieted down by some expanding spray foam.

I'd like to remove the entire assembly eventually.
