    2001 Boxster S
  1. Maybe I'll take it to a shop, then. I really didn't want to give up on it, though.
  2. I've tried researching and debugging this issue on my Boxster for months now. I must have read about 1000 topics, but nothing has 100% the same issue as I am having. To put it simply: My windows work, as in, they go up and down when you open the door handles, but that is it. The centre console switches don't work, and the they don't drop when I lower the convertible roof. More detail: The drivers door window drops and immediately raises again when I open the outer or the inner door handle. If I hold either handle open, the door continues to stay dropped (1in), until the handle goes bac
  3. Both windows not working at the same time, insinuates a central issue somewhere - unless of course, real bad luck and two motors or regulators are out, at once! Do the windows lower when the doors are opened? If yes, regulators should be good. Mine did. Do the windows lower when the convertible latch is undone? If not, bad motors/bad wires/bad window buttons is all I can come up with. Mine didn't, which led to the electrical issue identification. Try swapping out the (C3 and D1) fuses for other ones, check battery charge, battery disconnect and reconnect after a few mins and press down t
  4. ****. I am having the exact same issue, and I got excited to see you fixed it. But it appears that my fuses are all just fine..
  5. All the fuses are fine, I'm not sure how to check the relays? I also removed the drivers seat and checked the fuse in the alarm box; it was fine. There was no sign of water damage or even dampness. I removed the window switches and cleaned them up with electrical spray but still no luck. The connections looked fine but I have no way to check if the switches actually work. Should the heated seat switches work in place for the window switches? The car runs great and drives great, other than the clutch which will be fixed in the next few weeks.
  6. Could you find out what my code is? Becker1 CDR-220 Type 4362 Serial No. Y5023155 24/99 Many thanks, Rob
  7. I recently bought a used 2001 Porsche Boxster S, 91k miles in California (where I live). It was fairly cheap, but as a result of that, I am having some issues. I have searched the forums and found some information, but nothing directly relating to these issues: The central locking does not work. Pressing the lock butting on the key fob does nothing; if i press it twice/three times, the horn beeps twice, but nothing happens. Pressing the lock button inside the car does nothing. Locking the drivers side door locks the door, but not both doors. I am going to remove the drivers seat tomor
