  1. I have cleaned the MAF, thanks. Next suggestion Please
  2. Loren: I just took my 01 Boxster, tiptronic in for the annual Mass inspection. It failed showing the following codes: P1130.P1128,P1126 and P1133.Can you tell me waht they are and how to clear them? Thanks zlawman
  3. I am the owner of a 2001 Boxster tiptronic. Lately , with top up or down, I get a smell/stink of something that is akin to burnt coffee. The temp dash light neither goes on to flash or steady. The transmission shifts ok.There are no fault codes or engine lights. Any suggestions?
  4. Thanks once again Loren Zlawman
  5. I am the owner of a 2001 tip boxster 38000 miles and am having locking problems. I went to a local indie who found two codes 61 and 47. One is a communication problem but he couldn't find the description of the other. Which is which, I do not remember. In any event, I was getting the double beep sporadically. The gas lid needed to be unlocked using the key in the door and the passenger door had to be released from the inside. He cleared the codes and we are now looking for further guidance in fixing the issue. When I picked the car up and locked it, double beep came on with the unlocking.
  6. I am the owner of a 2001 base boxster with tip;color seal grey,36000 miles and was looking good. This am while backing out of the garage, I hit the side of the garage with the passenger side mirror. The mirror cracked and the housing popped open on the bottom. I was able to snap it together without glass breaking or injuring the housing. Now the question. Can I purchase only the mirror itself, if so what is the part number and I further assume I can get it from Sunset. Thank you, zlawman :renntech:
  7. zlawman,2001 tip seal grey Boxster. About 2 months ago I thought that for safety sake I would have the auto door lock activated. Since then, it double honks on both opening and closing either door. The panel light stays on after opening and honking. It makes it harder to shut the passenger door as it half locks when a person gets in and closes the the door; the door remains partially unclosed. It takes a real effort to close the door, I can take it to the local dealer, but would like to avoid the rip off charge. Do you have any suggestions; perhaps there is someone in the Newton Ma or Boston
  8. Thank You I'm going out to try it with my 5 thumbs.
  9. I believe so. The whole unit is oem and must be Bose
  10. zlawman;2001 tip; seal grey;36000 miles; How do you remove the rear speaker box, or alternatively replace the grill in front of the rear speakers?
  11. zlawman asks: Is there a central location to get a new tag--maybe using the vin#?
  12. I guess I'm off to the stealer Thanks zlawman
  13. zlawman,2001 seal grey tip,34000 miles. As I indicated in an earlier post I'm having remote trouble. So, before spending $230 at a local dealer to replace the key head, I decided to manually lock/unlock the car. Now when I lock/unlock or open from the cockpit the horn blows twice. The manual, of course, says got to stealer for remote work. Is this necessary or can I do it myself?
  14. Tool Pants: I can mkae the diode light by jumping the connection with a paper clip, so I dont think there's a bad solder joint. I just put a call into my local indie to see if he's got a bad head and perhaps take off the top of the switch and substitute it. Looks like a trip to the local dealer. Thanks for the input zlawman
  15. Thank you very much for your wisdom and patience zlawman Loren: Once more please. I took the board out of thr key head and pressed the two trunk buttons. Both flashed the diode. The large button did not work so I took the top contact off and jumped the two metal portions with a paper clip. The result was the diode worked. It looks like that button is worn down and does not make contact. How do I find a replcement for the small contact. A local dealer quoted $230 for a new key with programming. Any ideas? Thanks again zlawman
  16. Thank you very much for your wisdom and patience zlawman
  17. Just bot a new battery. Same results. no lights. Is there a way to check the keyhead or do I have to buy a new one. I'll try the spare when I get home from work Again, thanks Loren Loren: The spare I now recall never worked. When I went to the car and pressed the rear trunk opening button, it did work once---no red light. Do you think that the contacts maybe worn down so that they are not meeting on the push of the button or do I need a new head. zlawman
  18. Just bot a new battery. Same results. no lights. Is there a way to check the keyhead or do I have to buy a new one. I'll try the spare when I get home from work Again, thanks Loren
  19. Loren: Thanks so much for the TSB. I tried all that and now no lights work. What next? zlawman;2001 Boxster;seal grey;tip And your problem is the same as the first poster? The light stayed on all the time? Yes, it did. I took the battery out to kill the light and after replcement,it doesn't work at all.
  20. Loren: Thanks so much for the TSB. I tried all that and now no lights work. What next? zlawman;2001 Boxster;seal grey;tip
