I'd hate to drop this insurance company. I pay $9.90 a month, plus 1.6 cents a mile. I know I've exceeded posted speed limits numerous times in the Boxster, and have yet to be dinged. I've had the car and the monitoring device for 13 months now, and just dealing with the voltage drain for most of that time. I'm retired, and it isn't my every day car. I love it. I'm also afraid I don't have the skill to drive it in the manner it was actually meant to be driven. I'd be afraid I'd kill myself, or even worse, total the car. ☺️ I'm hoping the device is faulty, I've reached out to
I have a 2001 Boxster. If I don't start it and let it run for a while every day, it won't start without charging the battery. I've replaced the ignition switch, after researching other threads on voltage drains. I've used a multimeter to check the ohms on each fuse, the only one that showed any was C3. I removed it, the drain was still present. My car insurance requires a device to be plugged into the OBD port, I unplugged it, and the amperage drain dropped from 400 milliamps to about 40. I waited two days without starting it, instead of the usual one, and it started. I know the sample size
I know this is an ancient thread, but I'm trying to track down a voltage drain. My multimeter is showing a 400 milliamp drain. I need to start pulling fuses to isolate the issue and need to fool the 2001 Boxster into thinking the door is closed so I can get to the fuses. Will the above method with the latch turning off the door light shut everything down as if the car is closed, like it is overnight when the battery is running down?
