  1. Jeff, looking at two right now....a 2000S with almost a complete page of options on it, and a 2002S with a more minimalist approach...both with mileage under 60K and prices in the very low $20s just tossing around the +s and -s of each... both are lease return/one owner cars. with clean carfax reports. :D
  2. I know that the HP rating for a y2k 986S is 250 HP, is the rating for a 2002 986S also 250 HP? any preferences on buying a used y2k S vs. a 2002S? thanks
  3. Thanks Loren and Jeff, It belongs to a good friend of mine. He just bought it and wants only the temp read out. I will let him know and see if he wants to remove the bumper cover and take a look for wires. I don't know when the car was manufactured but it must be a fairly early '97 since the car has 117K miles on it. With that kind of mileage there is a better than even chance that it may have had some body work on that right front fender area. I will have him check your suggestions. Appreciate your prompt replies.
  4. On a '97 Boxster there is no standard temperature sensor for outside temps. Correct? This being the case is the wiring for the probe behind the rubber plug in the back of the bumper? If not how difficult is it to run the wiring and where does it need to go to? Or is it just a matter of getting a temp. probe and plugging it into to wiring harness behind the bumper rubber grommet? By the way I already have the computer turned on. It shows --F degrees but no temps. :huh: Thanks
  5. If you don't have the MY that is glass specific I would NOT retrofit a glass top. The way the mechanism retracts back into the trunk is just asking for trouble. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> There is now a top that is being specifically designed for the older model Boxsters and it has a glass rear window that is the same size as the '03 and '04. There was a very long thread on this site about the installation and how it fit and looks. Check with ToolPants.(jeff) I believe it was a GAHH or something like that. :D
  6. Could someone either decode these for me or direct me to where I could find them. Tried the option decoder from Kimmel, but most don't register. C02, 198, 232, 249, 394, 432, 454, 490, 502, 535, 551, 584 These are from a 2003 Boxster Normal. Thanks in advance. :drive:
  7. Loren, I have no idea since I bought the car used. This just started about a week ago. Until then never had a problem and gas guage has always been accurate. As far as I can tell the guage is still accurate. How would I check to see if this has been corrected previously, other than checking with dealer. Do they affix a sticker somewhere when corrections are made. Do you know what fuse on a '99 would be used instead of fuse E6? Thanks
  8. 4 different gas stations all with the same result. :(
  9. Don't have a fuse in the E6 slot. Any other thoughts? :oops:
  10. :( Any one know what the problem when gas will only go in in short bursts? Seems like the tank is full when it is not. Pump keeps shutting off like tank is full. Thanks Dan
  11. Thanks Jeff, That is about the price I was thinking of. We will see what the owner has to say. Dan
  12. Any thoughts out there on the value of a used 3 spoke wheel and airbag? Appears to be in excellent shape out of low mileage "S" The airbag has a silver Porsche crest on it. :D
  13. You will need to run a wire from the left side to the right to get the power (hot) during rear fog switch activation. You should be able to get a ground on the right side. Check with a voltage meter or a test light to see which wire is hot and which is ground. someone here like tool pants can probably give you the color code. Many folks have done it over the years. I have been contemplating doing it myself just to give myself something to do when I am bored and not at the track or AX. :drive: :oops:
  14. Hack is a 1-2 on a scale of 5. Takes ~30min if you use a dash switch. 45-60 min doing the four stalk. I am sure you could get an independent to do it. It is only money...and since they are probably not up to speed on this hack it may cost you dearly$$$$
