Hello My driver side door in my 2000 Boxster, locks up, I hear the central locking system engaged but cannot open the door from the inside or ourside. The only way it opens is by pushing the the door from the outside a couple of times and them it opens. Not sure if the door lock mechanism is bad or if its something simpler. Any help here would be appreciated.
Solved Replaced the 80AMP fuse F5, and the car is running perfectly fine.
OK I checked and F5 does not have continuity any reason why that fuse would break? I am not sure if this is the source of my problem I ll have to get a replacement fuse and put it in
No, the door lights do not work neither do the door locks
I put a multimeter on the 15amp fuse of the immobilizer and it it does not have power.
Is the F5 that you referring to, the one in the passenger side (high amperage) that comes directly from the battery?
OK I checked power to B8 and E1 and they both have 12.37v. I can't find F5. Where is it?
yes he did clutch was pressed. I am not getting power to the immobilizer, and therefore anything behind that is also dead. The OBDII port stems from the immobilizer. I need to find out what is before the immobilizer that could be cutting off power. The diagram in the Bentley book shows an induction coil in the ignition lock and electronic immobilizer signal converter attached to the steering lock cylinder. Is there any way those could be cutting off the power? could these be tested? can the actual key lock cylinder be defective ?( i only replaced the electronic part)
I pulled out the start lock relay, (7) and the DME relay (1) and tested them, the relays are good. I did not jump it, but had my son turn the key while I place my fingers on the relays, and none are clicking.The spoiler ones do work (3 & 10) and they are all in the same bank. Not sure if they use the same ground. How would I test for ground there? There is no aftermarket electronics connected. What would connect and tap power from the OBDII port anyways?
Need some help here please. My 2000 Boxster 986 2.7L died on me while driving, the car all of the sudden turned off, the head lights and the instrument panel are lit and work, but nothing else does. It acts like the battery is dead but its not. The power windows do not work nor do the power locks. My radio works and the convertible top works also, I am also able to move the seats back and forth and the rear spoiler extends and retracts. My key fob has not worked for some time now, but i always opened the car manually and never had any problems with it running. when I turn the key to start the car all the lights in the dash lite up except the check engine light, and nothing happens, no crank. This is what I have done so far. Replaced the battery with a new one. even though the previous tested good. 12.37v I replaced the key switch (electronic part), no change. bypassed the clutch safety switch, no change Took the driver seat out, inspected the area for water or moisture, there is none. its completely dry. Checked the fuse in the immobilizer unit and its good. put a multimeter and tested the voltage on both sides of the 15AMP fuse in the immobilizer and only got a reading of .56v, no sure if that is correct or if it needs to be 12v. checked every fuse in the fuse panel and they are all good. checked the relays in the rear trunk and they are also good I suspect that the power is not reaching the immobilizer unit. I tried connecting my OBDII scanner and it says it cannot communicate with the car. I always used this scanner in this car with no problems and I checked it in my other car and works fine. Also the LED indicator light on top of the dashboard does not work, and with the key fully opened the check engine light does not light up. Is there anything in between the key switch and the immobilizer unit that can have a fuse or can cut off power to the unit if defective? Is there anything that I am missing here? Any help with would be greatly appreciate it.
