Tool Pants you´re wright - i have a 1997, not one of the first unknwon 1987 models... Thats the same problem i have. I checked the old boxster threats but not the 996 ones. I will check this later today. I was not sure about the relay. Hopefully this will solve the problem on a cheap way.
Hi guys, yesterday, i jumped in my car (1987 Boxster). The sun was shining, no rain. I started the engine and the windshield wipers started to work. I pulled it down but it did not stop. I pushed it up and pulled it down again but it is still working... The thing is - i can choose between speed 1 and speed 2, but intervall and stopping it is not working! Looks like the steering column switch has a problem. Do i have to get a new one (part# 996.613.217.10 ? - speed control, no bord computer) or would it make sense to open the part (if possible) and get it maybe fixed or could it also be another part that is not working? Thanks, Simon PS: The only way now to stop the windshield wipers from working is pulling out the fuse...
Just to keep you guys updated - problem is solved. I had the car checked at the Porsche dealer. They put in a new Central Looking Unit and it had to be programed with a new key. They also noticed that both door locks were not working, after they had checked some options for the problem, that the doors still won´t lock. I replaced the locks with two used ones. Everything cost me about 1100 EUR...
Hi guys, had a check engine light the last two days (erased it the first time but it showed up again). Checked the car with Durametric which showed Code P0410 and P1411. Does anybody know, what might be the fault. Thanks Stefan
In the meantime, i found out that the brown/red wire connected to the doorlock is the signal for openening the lock and brown/white for shut the lock - if you give a (-) signal. But even if i do this with a little wire, i get a "feedback-noise" from the central locking unit but the doorlocks don´t open or close. I still have the Durametric fault 46 - "syncronisation" and 60 - "not able to close". Is it possible, that both door locks are not working...? The Porsche guys said that the CLU might be out of order. But every electroninc feature works fine - even the doorlock for the back trunk. Only the two door locks don´t work. Any idea...???
Hi guys, as i still have the problem with my Central Locking Unit ( both door locks and alarm not working (with the fob), all other functions are fine), i want to install a third party central locking unit (maybe alarm also) just to open and close the doors with a fob. The door locks originally are conneted with a nine wire connector. First question is: - if i disconnect this connector from the door lock and instead wire the new central locking wires to the door lock, will this cause a problem to the porsche central locking unit? - the manual of the new CLU says, Porsche uses a "negative trigger" to open / close the doors. If so, which wires do i need to connect with the two wires from the new CLU? Thanks a lot, Simon2, 98 Boxster us model
Hi guys, as my central locking unit is not working at the moment (other post), i can only lock the driver side door with the key. I can not lock the passenger side door. Is there a way, to lock/unlock the passenger side door by putting +12V on one off the wires at the lock, just for the meantime until i got fixed/changed the central locking unit. It will just be for a temporary time. Thanks, Stefan
I did not found new door locks, but i found another M535 unit with the code to program it (that´s what the seller told mes). For my car (98), i would need part# 996 618 260 07. Will other parts# like 996 618 260 05 or 03 or others also work? Will the Porsche dealer only need a code to program it?
Your wright. When i bought the alarm box, i thought i would only need this part. I was very cheap so no big deal. But i found some europen door locks from a LHD car. I think i will try those. Is it just plug´n play or do the doorslocks have to be programmed by the alarm unit?
The used M534 alarm box i bought is from a UK-model. I can get both door locks from this car but will they fit in - steering weel and key lock on the right side in UK! Also this UK car had a tilt sensor installed. Will this M534 box work in my US car without having the tilt sensor installed? This will be a "international" car when it´s done... :D
No M536, only options are 232 396 454 490 502 535 551 582 688 692 Update: I made the connectors match and put in the used M534 unit with 433 Mhz in the car. The doors did not open or close with the keyfob; i was only able to open the trunk lid - the same like with the other old M535 unit. The only different thing that happend is that both windows went down when i pushed the keyfob. Then i changed the keyhead with the M534 platine (see picture) and i could go to ignition, but where not able to start the car. My "old" key had the little "glass pill" (? transponder/immobilizer ?) on the side, the "new" key from the used M534 unit had it on the top (i guess - red circle?). Then i installed the old M535 unit back again, changed the key back and the car started, but no door locking, unlocking with the fob. The guy i bought the used unit from told me, that it worked fine bevore he remode it. So - what should i do? Does the M534 unit only needs to be programmed? When i first went to the Porsche dealer, they took a lock at the car and said it might be the doorlock itself. Then they put it at the computer and then said, i would need a new unit. So - what should i do next? If there´s nothing else left that i can do by myself, i guess, i would bring the car to the dealer and have a new unit installed. And it´s not only the money. I would like to solve the problem by myself (with the help on renntech, of course) :renntech:
