    2006 Boxster 2.7
  1. Thanks I have tried cleaning the TB before but I just couldnt remove it following the pedros guide. As a secondary thought is it possible it could just be a worn/old air filter
  2. it does a constant wobble of a couple of millimetres when stopped at lights. If I blip the throttle it stops
  3. At idle my 3.2 05 Boxster S has a slight random wobble (maybe a mm) at 600rpm. It doesnt always happen but say 80% of the time when stopping at lights etc. Faulty coil pack?
  4. Im looking at buying a Box that has had a replacement engine, the engine no. is M96268T62665338 Looking through the forums it suggest the T is a refurb is that correct? Am I right in thinking this a 2005 engine?
  5. I agree with Richard that circuit does not handle the instrument cluster. The only way I see it could affect the cluster is if something attached to it was pulling the whole electrical system down (which could be a clue to why the fuse blew). In terms of attached device? If so nothing has been attached since ive owned the car either that or the ciggerette connection. Maybe a faulty connection that shorted? Or a penny thats fallen down the console arm and possibly shorted(ing) it?
  6. It was A8 the thats the 12v one in the rear arm rest isnt it? (the one 2 to the left of the cigarette one on the first main row)
  7. I managed to fix it, there was a blown fuse for the 12v power (the one in the arm rest bit) and I removed the ciggerette fuse also. No idea why but cars works perfectly now
  8. Thanks, running the battery with a multimeter it records a steady 12.8v even with heaters etc. on seems something is draining it would a faulty chassis ground cause this?
  9. Great idea I tried this first with the front ground (but had the same result) I then opened the engine bay but I couldnt for the life of me find the engine ground pictured here is there 987 location different?
  10. Thanks how would you verify a ground? The cables seem to be attached fine
  11. out of interest why would the cluster need re-progamming - the cluster seems fine once the car has started (the problem is just a momentary restart lasting a fraction of a second immediately after the engine has started)
  12. Tried 2 new batteries an S3 and S5 Bosh and still having the same problems. 2 out of 3 times when I start the car the instrument cluster effectively resets. It goes dark for a split second then flashes back on with the clock reset. When it doesnt reset (the 1 out of 3 times) when I start the car the cluster dims massively for a split second while the car tries to start Any ideas what this could be? Starter Motor? Alternator?
  13. Cheers, so to remove the battery its black terminal off then red terminal off (remove battery and insert new one) then red terminal on then black terminal on? Do I need radio codes for a CD24 on a 987?
  14. I need to replace the battery on my 987 am I right in thinking I need to put the key in the ignition and turn the power on (but not engine) before disconnecting the battery to replace to prevent the alarm going off?
