  1. HI... Do not have any Boxsters. And I don't have an idea about #1. On #2, did they say to change the car battery or the Key battery? Sometimes if the key battery ( a small watch battery) gets weak, it can case starting problems due to the transponder setup that the car reads when the key is used. May be worth checking. Just a thought DC The dealer mechanic was referring to the car battery. The key remote so far has been operating perfectly so I doubt the battery is weak. However, I'll change it to see if there's an improvement.
  2. Maybe someone else can confirm which car??? I'll check it out too. TKS!!
  3. Sorry, TPMS was an option. Check your options list for I482 Tire Pressure Monitoring System.
  4. Thanks Loren! That sure was quick. You must have a beeper tied into the posts on this site. Indeed I have tried locking the doors with the remote when a door has not been closed. I believe I got a beep when that happened. Can live with the PAS fault code, but because the PDK may not have experienced all the possible user stimuli to date, I just hate the idea of finding myself stranded in the middle of Arizona. According to Durametric, resetting the faults will not clear a fault that has not been dealt with. If this PDK fault is a fluke, then resetting all faults should not affect anything and at worst I would still get the registered fault which would likely lead to a visit to a dealer.
  5. Sounds like the cooling system has an air pocket. If you dont have the AirLift bleeding kit, start car up cold and have someone keep revs at around 4000 rpms and start adding distilled water until the t-stat opens around the 180 mark, then put cap back on and let off the high rpms and drive hard, rev it a couple of times and that should do it for you. Vizcarra44 :rolleyes:
  6. The problem needs to be properly diagnosed using the voltage drop test method. Its true that the starter alternator cable does go bad, but it can also be a voltage drop somewhere else in the B+ circuit up to the battery. I suggest taking it to Callas Rennsport, they got the factory scanner and all the right tools. The warranty policy with porsche regarding batteries is that if you dont put 6K in mileage per year the battery will not be covered. Regarding the starter, this is 100% not the problem, this is from my experience with these issues. vizcarra44
