Thank you guys for the feedback and information! I have a feeling it could be the ignition switch. I've heard 986 owner's say the ignition switch is something that will eventually go bad; and that it causes several electrical components to go a little haywire. Also, I don't know if there's any salvage history with the car, but I can tell that it has been repainted at some point. Is there any way to check this via Vin number or something? It will be a few days until I can check everything out.
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!
PLEASE HELP! I recently purchased a 1999 Porsche Boxster from a local small dealership and they didn't reset the radio for me after changing the battery. No number on sticker under the hood. Any information will help! SER # W5003053 01/99
