  1. Thanks everybody for the advice. Turned out to be the box as expected. Old water damage had ruined it even though it was completely dry when I got to it. Box was £300 and about £100 to reprogramme the key. Oh well! All sorted now.
  2. Thom - Thanks for the advice. Will check the dash light tonight.
  3. Thanks RichardIt doesn't work at all so I'll have a go at that. Do you have to remove the seat to get to the fuse or should I be able to see it with a bit of effort?
  4. Thanks for that. It makes sense ref the synchronisation. The console button doesn't lock the drivers door either though. Would a faulty lock have shown up as separate fault code?
  5. HiI've just bought my first Porsche, a 1997 2.5 Boxster Manual UK RHD spec. It has got a few problems that I suspect are linked but don't know how to solve. Issues as follows:-Passenger (left side) door does not lock either with the key or the remote or the button on the dashRemote button on key does not work even though the LED lights up and the red light on the dash flashes.I can open/lock the drivers door with the key but when I do, the horn beeps twiceOther than that, car works fine and starts/runs perfectly.I've got hold of a durametric and got the follwoing fault codes/messages:-AlarmCurrent Fault Codes47No Central Locking PossibleCentral Locking synchronisationStatus: PresentNumber of times DTC present: 146No Central Locking PossibleCentral Locking synchronisationStatus: PresentNumber of times DTC present: 141No engine start possibleTransponder pill faulty or not presentStatus: Not presentNumber of times DTC present: 134No passenger compartment monitoringInterior monitoring sensor short to B+ or faultyStatus: PresentNumber of times DTC present: 145Central Locking or unlocking not possibleServer motor.
