Radio "dead" after replacing battery. I HAVE THE CODES! (But no way to enter them) I see a lot of info out there about how to find your lost radio codes and whatnot, but that is not my problem as I have my codes. The issue is that after 1)having a dead battery, 2)replacing said battery, and 3)having the car sit unused for a week while waiting on a replacement coolant tank part, I NOW HAVE A DEAD-SCREEN RADIO AND NO WAY TO ENTER THE CODE OR TURN ON THE RADIO. I can see that other people may have experienced this phenomenon but I can't seem to find anyone with a published solution as everyone seems to digress into a discussion of where to find your radio codes, etc. I assume that there is some sort of arcane Porsche security gremlin at work here, and that I need to follow some other sort of procedure in order to get my radio to accept the code and unlock itself. But without the radio showing any signs of life at all, how do I get into this? Or is my radio now dead for no apparent reason?! (e.g., it was working just fine up until the dead battery and service work time-span). I hate to invest in a replacement radio until I can ascertain what would make it suddenly die(?) Never in all my years of auto ownership have I seen a radio just "go silent". So what's up here?
(60,000km on the odometer) Now the car is completely dead with no Interior lights anywhere. Car was sitting there with a charger on timer charging for maybe an hour per day for a month while I was on vacation. The CD/radio was making a clicking sound prior to and I thought the battery needs a boost to start after a month. Now nothing! Well almost nothing - behind the dash board there is some very weak clicking/sound. Thought I ask here first - before towing it to the Porsche dealership. 😩
Hello Ladies and Gentlemen I just bought a 99 Boxster with 82,000 miles on it (Manual) Sometimes after I have been out driving I park my car and when I get back in it it will not crank. I do hear the solenoid at the starter kick when I turn the key but no luck. The engine will not turn. Then the next several hours I go and turn the key and "Holy Moley" it starts right up and will continue to start for several days then it will just die again. So far have changed battery and starter and checked all ground and positive wires and all good . HELP ME PLEASE!
