    1999 Porsche Boxster
  1. Has anyone had any luck in polishing headlight covers? My boxster looks great and has almost 100k on it. The headlight covers have become very dull and I can not really see buying new ones yet...
  2. 4549 works! Once I left the radio on for 1 hour I was able to enter it.
  3. Hey Loren, I did follow the procedure to get the info... did it again to double check for good measure: Becker 1 Type 4462 Ser# W5002680 31/98 The model is a cdr220... The wait screen is still on. Does the radio have to be on for 1 hour for it to go off?
  4. I just had to break in to my own boxster with a locksmith... and in he said if the battery is dead - the porches are pretty much locked up tight... Look where the tow hook goes to see if someone moved the cable there. I pulled off both of my wheel liners with the tires on and looked for days for the dumb wire until I cheked the tow hook opening and it was sitting there waiting for me (where someone had moved it to).
  5. I need one now... I guess I played with it too much and broke it because it says WAIT... the radio is becker Type 4462 #W5002680 How do I get it off wait to enter the codes>?
  6. One way to find out is to disconnect from the lock assembly under the dash and try it that way. The cable is intended to just keep the car from going in to drive without the key.
  7. ****Update**** Battery was almost dead - and apparently so was my head...
  8. If it is one of the 97-00 boxsters - I think they have had problems w/ the adjustment in the key-lock-cable. This would definately keep the key from coming out of the ignition.... But im not sure if it would keep the car from being shifted into park...
  9. Battery in the remote or in the car? Both are fairly new - the remote still opens the car doors, and the battery in the started the car the day before yesterday with no hesitation... I think im gonna check the ignition switch in the morning - I may have knocked something loose.
  10. Car will not start. (1999 986 tip) When I insert the key into the ignition the beep that usually comes on is much faster, and when I try to start the car, it clicks fastly and the lights in the dash flash, but the starter doesnt run - and thats about all that happens... I did take the key head apart to work on the console lock cylinder recently- and the car would start before that. Is this what happens when the crystal in the key is removed or disabled???
  11. Ok - so I tried my key in the console lock also - No worky. I removed the key cylinder and "adjusted it" so now that works. I will probably take the door cylinder to a locksmith fix. But now I have more problems... When I insert the key into the ignition the beep that usually comes on is much faster, and when I try to start the car, it clicks fastly and the lights in the dash flash, but the starter doesnt run - and thats about all that happens... I did take the key head apart to work on the console cylinder - is this what happens when the crystal in the key is removed or disabled??? I need some major help now... :(
  12. Bit the bullet - called a locksmith. He popped it in like 5 minutes using basically a long rod as shown above. Only $55 and my insurance covers it. But for the record - removing the battery cable does NOT reset the reciever so dont even try it. We had to hook up the battery and open the door with the alarm going off the whole time. Done and done, now its just time to see why my door lock isnt working... Are these all mechanical or are there electrical components to to the lock???
  13. Update - Someone had already moved the cable to the tow hook point.... Woulda been really easy if I would have looked there first, but oh well. Pulled cable - alarm went off - remote still does not operate locks. Removed battery. Reattached batter, alarm still going off and remote does not work still... Any thoughts or help? Thanks.
  14. So what are the dimensions on the stock wheelies and what will fit from the aftermarket. Where should I look and what do I need to know. I like the look of about 18" euro looking wheels with about 12 spokes.
