    2000 Porsche Boxster
  1. Thanks to all for the excellent advice. I believe I have found a good local mechanic and had a good conversation with him. He suggested doing the various things that were mentioned here. As far as the 13+ year old battery, I always brought it into the house in the winter, stored it on my bench in the cellar in Massachusetts, and kept it on a battery tender. The battery itself is a Sears Die Hard that I had to buy while far from home in an emergency in 2003. Still seems to be going strong. Paul
  2. I'm looking for advice in maintaining my well kept 2000 Boxster. In 2003, I bought a 2000 base Boxster with 14,000 miles (manufactured 11/99, 2.7L, MT) from a Porsche dealer in Massachusetts, where I primarily reside. The car now has just under 40,000 miles. So I've only driven it 26,000 miles in 13 years, and I have had no major problems. I had maintenance done by the dealer initially for about 5 years, but then switched to a more local independent mechanic with a good reputation, as the dealer was over an hour's drive each way. Last year I bought a condo in Naples, F
  3. I left the radio on, after a while the WAIT message went away, and the radio was asking for the code. The 0762 which you suggested worked. Nice website. Thanks again, Paul.
  4. Thank you for that immediate reply. I had tried two codes last night and ended up getting the WAIT message. Just now turned it on again and the WAIT message is still there after sitting overnight. I disconnected the battery for a few minutes to see if that would reset it, but upon reconnecting the WAIT message is still there. So now I have disconnected the battery and will wait an hour to check again, unless anyone has any other suggestions. Many thanks, Paul
  5. Not sure if this is the right place to post as many of the postings seem very old, but... Lost radio code, 2000 Porsche Boxster. CDR 220 BECKER 1 Type 4462 Serial # X5025151 Thanks for any help.
