Yep, they found a low voltage code and reset the code and the Tiptronic Emergency Run cleared. I've driven it for 180 miles with no issues. I guess the Boxster is sensitive to low voltage. Thank you for the follow up!
I've got a 05 Boxster S with 32,000 miles go into Tiptronic Emergency Run Mode - Dash indicator says it's in 4th gear. It shifts from start until 4th gear and won't go over 3000rpm. I'm going to guess this is limp mode. I was backing into a parking spot after a 30-40 minute drive and when I put the car in park the Tiptronic Emergency Run Message came on the dash. I tuned the car off and re-started the car and the Message changed to put car on P or N then the Tiptronic Emergency Run Message came back on. I drove it straight to Tacoma Porsche and dropped it off. The service writer has never seen that message and cannot look at it for a few days. Anybody got any suggestions or maybe a good Porsche mechanic around the Tacoma Washington area?
If you get the key working could you please share the process? I've got a working key that has a broken ring so it won't go on my key chain. I've got a quote of $500 from dealership to replace. I would like to find a less expensive key.
