    2001 Boxster S
  1. Hi. and thanks for the comments. I have not been on line for a few weeks, and I gotta go to UAE for the next 2 weeks. But when I get back I'm gonna try the control box. I'll let you know what happens. thanks again
  2. grand no problem - I'll send a PM of good mechanics in the area. We will have to organise an Irish boxster meet in the next few months ! sounds like a good idea!
  3. The more I look at this problem, the more Im convinced it is the passenger door sensor switch. Now all I have to do is find it, work out how to test it, and finally replace it! If anyone has any suggestions, I would appreciate comments! Thanks :)
  4. Hi thanks . . . I'll let you know how it goes after the weekend, and if it is still giving trouble? Do you use Porsche in Belgard or do you know of a good mechanic who knows about the Boxster?
  5. hi all, Well I spent the weekend trying and testing all I could. So, the current status after all my efforts is that the central locking starting working again for a day but has stopped again. The passenger window keeps jumping into the door open Position even when I try lock the car and the cabin light stays on. So, I'm guessing that the suggestion that it might be a micro switch in the door could be the problem. So, next thing I need to do next weekend is try and confirm this. Does anyone have any suggestions what is my best way to check it? I really appreciate all the previous comments that I got from you, and I can say it's been the most informative information that I have received regarding these issues. Thanks again to all and I look forward to any additional comments! :D
  6. Hi, I have a RHD 2001 Boxster S, 3.2, 6 speed with 60k miles on it. Over the last 4/5 months, problems have developed, and I have listed them below in a timed sequence. Sept 08 - Car alarm, started giving intermittent beep as if a door was left open (occassionally). This problem got more and more frequent, resulting in the alarm going off every 20 mins or so (neighbours not happy!). I called Porsche in Ireland first, and then Porsche in the UK, and they told me that it was probably the alarm tilt switch. I disconnected this, but problem remained, so I had to disconnect all alarm speakers. Oct 08 - I noticed, moisture building up inside the car (condensation on the windows internally) and I checked the floor etc. It felt slightly damp. I checked the door drains and they are clear. Nov 08 - Car alarm is still flashing (sirens disconnected), and I noticed that the carpet behind the seats is also damp. I checked the drains in the area behind the seats, as mentioned in the forums, and they are clear. I have also checked in the front boot for water, and it is all clear. Dec 08 - Car alarm is still flashing (sirens disconnected). The electric windows began to act up, and when I would start the engine, the drivers window would open. i believe this may be due to the moisture in the car, and once I have been in the car for a while and driving , the problem stopped. Jan 09 - Car alarm is still flashing (sirens disconnected). When the car door open button is pushed on the key, the passenger window drops approx 1/2" as if the car door is being opened. This only closes when the car alarm is re-activated. The central locking button on the dash has also stopped working. I have checked the electrical unit under the seat and no water appears to be present, (I did not remove the seat, merely reached under the seat to check it). All drains in the doors and behind the seats are still clear. I have checked again in the front boot for water, and it is all clear. I'm hoping somebody can help me with this or if anybody has any suggestions, I look forward to trying them. Regards
