  1. Huge thanks Nick2508 for figuring this out. Got this issue (limp mode = rough idle, max. rpm at 1900rpm, no power) yesterday with my Boxster S 2000 after having run out of fuel. Did not check error codes, but symptoms are exactly the same. There are numerous threads, but this is the only one I found with the solution that works = switching ignition off and on fast for about 20 times. I was getting prepared for a TB swap, ... and was really relieved to see this worked!
  2. Fixed it! Spent 5 hours googling this today, but found the solution! There are numerous threads on this (or related) issue which seems to culminate to the error code P1502 (P1502 Throttle Jacking Unit, Spring Test – Above Limit). I did not check if I had that, but am pretty sure based on all the symptoms. Most people get these after disconnecting the batter for a more or less extended period of time. Myself and at least one other author got it from running out of fuel. Also, seems to particularly plague the model year 2000 S. An then the solution, which was found on
  3. Sorry for raising an old topic, but I have exactly the same issue now. The problem occurred after running out of fuel. Did adding fuel really solve your original issue permanently? Started a new thread on this here:
  4. Hi, Car is Boxster S 2000 Tiptronic. Last evening I drove the car for 10min and probably ran out gas, car stuttered and engine stalled (due to faulty fuel tank reader, runs out when shows 150km left or 1/4 tank. It showed 180km when I departed, so I thought I would have enough to the gas station). I put in 4 liters or so of probably 2-yr old fuel from a canister I keep in the car. It has run out of gas 1-2 times before, but no problem. Car started up again, but with complete loss of power and very rough idle. I drove to gas station 2km away and filled up. But the problem persi
  5. Thanks again for all the helpful comments. The cable adjustments / Tiptronic reset seems to have worked. I'll change the fluids next winter anyway.
  6. Just wanted to share this story if others have same problems or if anyone's got any comments on what's going on. I have a Boxster S 2000 Tiptronic, it started to sometimes shift from 5 to 4 or vice versa (not sure) - seemws not to be able to find or decide the right gear. This leads to the car hesitating and then starting to flash D. This happened randomly after a couple minutes - 1hour. After it happened the car hesitated everytime before accelerating. The problem often fixed itself for a while when the car was turned off. The problem seems to have gone away after I adjusted the shifter cab
  7. Thanks for the advice! Solved this by adjusting the rod from the cable to the bellcrank: 1. Removed the rod's end from the bellcrank 2. Loosened the securing nut 3. Made the rod one round longer Also lubricated all parts, now it's much smoother to move the shift lever. The only minor issue remaining is that there's maybe ~1mm of slack in the cable / rod, which was the original reason for my problem. Now after the adjustment, it still sometimes blinks the R if lever is moved to P too slowly. The same sometimes now happens with D, only if I move the shift lever too carefully.
  8. I also have the same problem and symptoms and would like to know what causes it. Malfunctioning inhibitor switch potentially?
