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. Central Locking system short to B+Status: PresentNumber of times DTC present: 2Bit of a long list but anybody got any idea what all that means on a practical level ie how do I fix it!Thanks for your helpRichard
Hello everyone, As some of you may already know, we talked about designing a waterproof case for the Alarm Immobilizer Unit in Boxsters and 996s. These units get water damaged easily if the convertible top is left open during rain, or just by the accumulation of water by the car's water drains, because Porsche installed them right on the floor of the car. The costs entailed to repair this problem can reach $1,000's easily, that's why it would be more cost effectuve to protect the CLU to begin with. Therefore, after many months of revisions and working with vendors to complete this enclosure, we began shipping waterproof cases last week to the members that where on our waiting list. Below are a few screenshots of the installation video final Immobilizer Waterproof case. If you are curious about how it is mounted here is the installation video: and PDF instructions: http://goo.gl/A9NQou We're excited about this project and what it could mean to the Porsche community. Please share if you know someone that could benefit from this.
Okay this is more than likely my fault for not getting my bulkhead drain grommets sorted out properly last autumn (they were blocked and causing water seepage into the cabin but when I was trying to clean it out I managed to push the old n/s grommet into never-never land.l bought a replacement and then did the same again! (To be fair it is a ba***rd to access as you'll know if you're familiar with this). I intended to try and access the never-never land area by removing the inner wheelarch liner in the Spring - by the way, as a separate issue, does anybody know if that will allow me to access/ retrieve/ refit the damned grommet? Anyway, onto the current issue.......the passenger carpet got wetter than I realised and although the ECU/ alarm unit seems positioned high enough away from the floor under the seat and is not covered with the carpet, I'm guessing that this has caused the problem that I have now. I.E. The central locking won't work now and only the drivers door can be locked with the key, plus the battery drains completely overnight. I took out both the passenger seat and the carpet to have a look, but although there was some water (not that much as there is a small hole drilled in one corner acting as a drain!), the ECU/ alarm unit appeared to be dry. Having tried to find a solution on various forums/ searches, I haven't seen this fault replcated or explained anywhere else, although my thinking is that it is actually the ECU which is the problem due to moisture ingress? Anyone know if I'm right and if it is the ECU, what's the best solution please, repair (how?) or replace? I've read some stuff about a reprogramming issue with new units? Any help much appreciated.
