Does the same method apply to the centre vents? TIA
Found suspicious oil leak when I was changing the rear wheels today. Seeking help from more experienced members here to diagnose the problem! Please see attached pics. Car is a MY2000 Boxster S manual, with approx 60k miles. Serviced regularly at 5000km interval. Oil is not dripping, none found on the garage floor. Car runs very healthy as far as I can tell! Apperciate any help. \url=http://s235.photobucket.com/user/sagacier/media/20131125_040701.jpg.html][/url]
Just tried this method, unfortuantely it didn't not make any difference. But thanks for the suggestion. Appreciate it!
It happened whilst trying to install an aftermarket radio, pulled everything apart, hooked up the new radio and tried to turn on the ignition to test for power, nothing happened, there was no crank. I quickly reconnected the original radio and climate control unit, tried to restart the car, again, nothing happened, no crank. There wwa also no power to the radio unit but everything else seemed fine, aircon, climate unit, interior/exterior and dash lights are all working. I did disconnect the battery before pulling everything apart. Ignition switch seems to be fine, key turns smoonthly. I have just replaced the electric portion of the ignition switch and it didn't help. The whole Ignition lock assembly was also replaced two years ago. I'm in Australia so the clutch interlock switch does not apply. Read a few threads which all seemed to point to the immobilizer, http://986forum.com/...meone-help.html Did my DME think the car was being stolen and turned off the fuel pump? In which case, is there a way to reset the immobilizer if I don't have a durametric tool? Also is radio problem related to no ignition? Thanks in advance
Model year? My00 Built 99. Thanks. According to the schematic (MY00 RoW Boxster) only the US, Canada, and Japan got the fog light cutoff relay. I think the RoW cars have fog lights that can be turned on anytime (without the headlights) whereas US, Canada, and Japan laws require then to only be used with the headlights. Can you confirm that? Thanks for the info, yes like RFM said fog lights can be switched on with parking (city) lights. I didn't realise it's a different case for the US cars. Any tips on which fuse to jump in order to have the fog lights on with ignition? Thanks.

So does anyone know the fog relay location of non-US Boxster? Thanks
Yes the same factory foglights like on every 986s. What do you mean by standard DIN relay? Thanks
Found a more thorough DIY: www.ppbb.com/phorum/read.php?24,1553073,1553073 Problem still the same though, my fog relay is missing! It's the #12 relay in the link.
Forgot to update this thread. I bought and installed the VW air suspension repair kit from ecstuning ($80 shipped to Australia!), it did not initially fix the problem but it was due to a leaking pressure pipe. After dealer replaced the pipe and cleared all codes everything runs fine now. Thanks to everyone who have helped me in this thread (special thanks to bigbuzuki).
I'm trying to do this "Fog lights as DRL" mod which I found on another forum: http://986forum.com/...ing-lights.html http://anti-blingdiy.blogspot.com.au/ According to the author, I need to tap fuse "A7" with the purple relay shown in the picture below, Anti-bling: DRL+2 However my relay arrangement seems to be different to the picture in anti-bling's blog, Mine: Purple replay missing. I suspect this might be due to model differences between Australia and the U.S. However. Australian spec Boxster should be the same as Europe (or ROW?), is this correct? How do I find out which relay of my Australian model 986 is equivalent to the purple relay of the U.S. model? Appreciate any help :cheers:
PM sent. Thanks
Guess I will have to wait and see. Thanks anyway. Has anyone actually had a failed compressor on this forum? I've searched and most threads seemed to end with the repair kit.
