    2002 Boxter
  1. Hi I do have been experiencing a problem for last few months with CL bottom and light. Precisely, during the driving this light on the right-side panel would come up and would not be distinguished at the end of the drive, or sometimes, after I passed over rough patch and light would be diminished, until the next path hole would come up. Problem with this light is that when I use remote to lock or unlock the vehicle, turn signal would not blink and horn would sound like two short beeps, indicating that some of the doors or trunks are not closed correctly. Fact is that all doors and lids are closed completely, but I do believe that I do have an electrical problem with either brokken wire or inoperative sensor in doors or lids. It seems like electrical wire or sensor problem...Anybody experinced similar issues on 2002 Porshe Boxter?

    P1411 and P0410 codes

    Everybody that looking for answer on those two codes I spent a month and half figuering out and erasing CEL before I find out solution on this issue. So for everybody at Renntech it is here. Most common problem with those two codes are two items Secundary air shut off valve (165$) or electric change over valve (27$). following link will give you chance yto download an parts manual for 986 04' where page 48-50 pdf doc depicts system and location of components. https://techinfo.porsche.com/techinfo/pdf/e...USA_KATALOG.pdf - following the links and Porscha club suggestions they are claimimg that Secundary air shut off valve is notorios bad component on system on Boxters that " reccommending to have an part on reserve access is must" considering the number of failures in history. On my Boxter 2002 I have replaced both air shut off valve as well as electric change over valve. If you are looking to change those components by yourself word of wisdom "it is tough Little SOB and it is hidden under manifold intake. Only way to access those two parts are remove alternator, and I have also removed accessories above between intake manifold so Ican access partially to both parts. Secondary air shut off valve sits and it is actually bolted with two 10 mm bolts bolted from under to top thathold valve with base (2000 and above), while pdf page 48 depicts part that is actually found on 97-2000,(slightly different design, and part number too) that are knuckle braker to remove but even bigger hustle to reinstall them(in my experience). Even with alternator removed there is little space to work to R&R new part without getting really many scars on hands. I 'll try to upload pic if anybody changing by itself so it can positively ID both parts.
