I purchased a 1999 Porsche Boxster 986 about a year ago and I'm having a few problems with the electrical accessories. The top worked fine when I bought it, but now it won't work sometimes. The radio also turns on, then immediately off at startup, and it won' turn back on until a few minutes later either by itself, when I use turn signals, power windows, brake, or even just by itself. After the car is "warmed up", then it will stay on. Other things won't work right or not at all, such as the alarms for, ignition, door open, light switches, etc. The fuses are all fine, and I know the battery had been replaced right before I purchased it. I haven't checked the relay for the top, but I am about to do that now. I feel like there could be a single problem creating all these issues. Any help would be greatly helpful and appreciated!
I have a 2006 Cayenne S. Ever since I've had the vehicle - I get the 'check left/right cornering lights' message on start up. It appears the lights are on all of the time. Guessing it might be a relay - but can find no reference to the cornering light/s relay in the manual. Does anyone know where the relay might be located - or have any other suggestions for what might be the source of this issue? Thx!!!
I'm trying to understand the outputs of the 997.1 cooling fan control unit. I understand that the fans are a continuously variable type and run in proportion to the cooling water temperature.
How is the fan speed adjusted? For example, is the voltage adjusted by the control unit? Maybe 0v to get 0 RPM, to 12v to get max RPM. Or, PWM?
I'm interested in using this info to add a manual override to be able to run the fan at max speed by a dash switch (but maybe needing some "smarts" if PWM is involved).
I hope one of you knowledgeable guys can help.
My 2005 Boxster S 987-1 heated seats don't work.
No light on the dashboard switches.
The wiring diagram I have says the fuse for the heated seats is fuse F2 80A in fuse holder B (under left side at
dash at kick panel).
I'm assuming being a UK car it means right side (drivers side) at kick panel.
Fuses in that fuse box are in rows A-E, no row F, and the highest rating is 30A
So I assume there must be at least one or more fuse/relay boxes somewhere else.
Can anyone point me in the right direction to find this pesky fuse.
Thanks in advance.
