  1. I believe it is what you mentioned earlier. The key fob's circuit board is bad, so the vehicle's alarm system has gone into deep sleep mode weeks ago, and is responding the way you described when i open the door with my key, because the fob does not work. The siren goes off within 5-10 seconds. So i have now began starting the vehicle before i get in the car. While standing outside i insert my key and start the car... It's the only way to beat the timer before the siren starts screaming away. :eek: I believe that might be the reason why Porsche has put the ignition on the left side of the dashboard; so we can start the vehicle while we are standing outside... :thumbup:
  2. Thank you Ahsai. :thumbup: Your rundown is excellent, precise, and easy to follow. I will do as you recommend, and report back on this string after. One other thing i noticed the vehicle does is this: because my fob does not work, i am forced to lock vehicle with the key manually. When i do that, and unlock the door, if i do not start the vehicle right away the alarm goes off until i turn the key to ignition on, or start car. Am i assuming correctly that this is the same issue as you mentioned above of resetting the key fob, or replacing the fob's circuit board?
  3. Got it! your code worked instantly!!! :jump: Thank you! :notworthy: I guess I answered my own question from above on: How do I get rid of the wait message So here is a little help for the rest of your members having the same "wait" message. Know that the radio must remain on for about an hour before the "wait" goes away and the stars show up to input your code. By wait I mean driving and stopping, or sitting with key on: Radio still has to be on power. I drove for a few weeks with the radio off, and every time I tried it on, the "wait" was still there, so I turned radio off right away thinking there must be some different code to enter to get rid of it. So not knowing what i am telling you now, i would turn radio off and wait till the next time. Bottom line leave your radio on while driving, and after an hour while you stop and go doing your chores with your car, the code input screen will come on. The second you input your 4th digit radio goes on! Pretty satisfying. Hope this helps...
  4. Loren, First, thank you for the quick reply. Went to garage to put in code. Turned key on, radio power on, and get the same "wait" message. Now my question is this: does the half hour, or 1 hour internal radio timer begin while radio is powered on, or even if it is powered off? The reason i am being precise to this question is because 4 or 5 days ago when i tried a random (0000,1234) code i got the "wait" message. I turned the power off to the radio and have not had it on since. Last night based on your advice I powered radio on, wait message was still on the face, held TP button for 10 seconds and finally the wait went away and I was able to get you the radio i.d. So should i power it on during my driving around today and will the wait go away or is there another procedure i can follow to get rid of the wait and the code prompt to come on the radio dial?
  5. New to the forum and i am having a difficult time navigating.I am not even sure this was the way to ask a question by posting a new topic... If not i apologize. I bought a 2002 boxter with automatic transmission and only 68,000 miles. First boxter and I know very little about the car. Had the car sit in the garage for a couple of weeks after the purchase and found it completely dead. The used car dealer that sold it to me changed the battery. Since then I seem to be having all kinds of annoying electrical problems. The key fob decided not to work any more. I replaced the key fob battery twice. Still nothing. My driver rear running light does not work, worked fine before. I checked the bulbs, all are fine. So are all the fuses. My driver front running side marker light does not work either. Nothing major but annoying nonetheless.
  6. Was working fine of course till the battery removal. Previous owner did not write it in the manual... Following your radio I.D. recovery procedure I've gotten the following: CDR 220 Type 4362 and serial # 15004832. Hope you can help. Thank you in advance. The radio code is the most important item for me at this time.
