I'm new to this website. Here is a question:
I have a 1998 Boxster 2.5 Tiptronic. I just had a new key programmed at dealership ( the old key fob newer worked). With new key fob, all doors (including gas) lock and unlock appropriately. However, when pressing the button to open the rear trunk lid, the lid doesn't move and the rear lock actuator/solenoid is silent. I disconnected the actuator from the car (separating the plastic connector) and using a 9v battery, made the actuator ( and lock) open and close. So I believe the problem is not the actuator. I also connected a volt meter to the two wires that connect from the car to the actuator, then pressed the fob button, and no voltage was recorded. However, the red light on the fob and the red light on the dash near the windshield did light up
So i believe the problem lies in the electrical system somewhere between the actuator and the fob. Any ideas on how to test the wiring running from the trunk lock actuator to the CLU? immobilizer? or wherever it goes? Or should I be spending my time evaluating the CLU? immobilizer? ??
Thanks for any advise!
I am missing the shift knob insert to my Boxster S 6 speed and cannot find a replacement anywhere without having to buy a whole new shifter... Does anyone
have one they would like to donate or sale? Or does anyone have any ideas on how to get one. Its just the insert that fits on top of the shifter Reverse through 6th...
Or does anyone have any ideas on how to make one? I am at a loss and it looks raty without the insert.....
Thanks in Advance!
Boxster 2003 window on passenger side will not drop to open the door with either inside or outside handle. I replaced the micro switch from the outside handle to no effect. Windows drop with unlocking top. Driver door works normally. Inside window switch works with no noises from regulator.
Hi all,I know that there has been a lot of talk regarding fitting rear speakers to a 981 Boxster . I have a 2014 GTS with sound system plus and I am very keen to add speakers behind the seats to fill in the sound. Is there a way of either enabling the fader on the PCM and then wiring the rear speakers to the amplifier under the seat ? Alternatively,connecting the rear speakers with a resistor of 16 ohms in parallel with the front speakers?
I had a bearing/seal failure in my 2003 Boxster w/ Tiptronic, and need to replace the torque converter and the oil pump. I have removed the transmission from the car and taken off the pan, filter, torque converter, and the control valves. I have also removed all the bolts from front of the oil pump housing. In online videos, they show two plastic tubes that need to be removed, before the pump will pull out. These were on ZF5HP19 transmissions for BMW and other cars. However, the Tiptronic for our cars, Boxsters, is a ZF5HP19FL. A slightly different monster.
When I try to pull on the oil pump, to remove it, it doesn't budge. I don't want to go forcing it, without knowing the proper steps to remove it.
Does anyone know the proper steps to remove the oil pump?
