Nope, gave it a good thump and nothing. Sounds like its the cause though. How much was that new switch and was it hard to fit? Cheers
Will go give it a try now... btw the 'bong' has gone when my lights are on and the ignition key is out. Same problem???
Any ideas how to fix it? Is it a new ignition or light switch?
No. What about it?
Hello, Got an '03 Boxster S and the instrument panel lights are not working. The LCD displays are fine but the rest of the dash is just in darkness. Also, the number plate lights are not working. I checked the fuse as the book says they are both on the same one... but fuse is fine. Changed it anyway just in case, no change. Checked the bulbs in the number plate and they were both bust. Replaced them and still no joy. There was some green (limescale?) cr4p on the connectors so cleaned 'em up a bit. Also in one of them you could tell a bit of water had got in, thus causing the limescale I assume. However if this was causing a problem I would assume the fuse would go? Reluctant to take it into Porsche Centre as when it was in for service the other week they quoted £70 to replace the number plate light bulbs... so god knows what they would charge to resolve this problem when they realised after they had replaced them they were still not working!!! Any ideas? Much appreciated.
