This is the first problem I have had with my 986 2001 Boxster S. The daytime running lights don't go on anymore. At night, I switch the headlights on, and the Lintronics start justs fine. When I turn on the highbeams, the litronic lights turn off. It just started doing this. I have searched this site for a solution, but was only able to find a post requesting a way to turn off daytime running lights. Perhaps the relay's mentioned therein is what I need to replace ? I posted this in the 987 thread also - my apologies if it offends anyone.

Check the fuse and relay. I believe there's a separate fuse for the running lights, but not sure. I have a relay chart on my website at http://www.theschillings.com Just click on the Boxster, click on "Where Is It" then "Relay Charts"

Unfortunately, clicking on the selections on your web page gets no results. In fact, the text is not "visible. I have set security and content to "default", still no joy. This is not the first time it has happened, but I don't know what to do about it.

Do you any have any suggestions ?

Sorry, I have Macromedia Flash buttons on the site. If you don't have Flash player or Shockwave on your system you can't see the buttons. I'll try to get it changed to something more easily read asap. Lately I've spent too much time working on the cars and not on the site. :rolleyes:

Thanks for pulling the text for him adsach. :thumbup:

Thank you so much for posting the Relay Panel. Unfortunately, when I look under my dash I just see a series of boxes with the number 53 on them. What am I missing ?

That's the relay box. The #53 is on the most common relay in the box. The slot numbers are small and on the black plastic the relays are mounted in.

Click on this http://www.theschill...om/boxrelay.htm

That goes straight to the page with the picture of the relay box, what each relay is for and the part numbers.

Thank you for your help. Replacing the # 6,7 (which is one unit) fixed the problem. The mechanic smelled the relay, and it had a distinct "electrical" smell to it.

You are "hijacking" a thread that has be dormant for nearly seven years, so don't expect a quick response.

 

A quick and obvious solution is to remove the LED bulbs, they have a different resistance than incandescent bulbs and often cause issues when used on circuits not designed for them.
