Hi y’all! Thanks in advance for reading this—there’s so much kindness and knowledge in this blog and I appreciate it so much. Had a quick question—how exactly do I operate my rear fog light on my USA sold ‘99 Boxster 986? Though I’ve read on forums that I’m supposed to push the front light stalk until I hear a second click (at which point the rear fog light will be on), I don’t see that option on my car. My stalk only clicks one way for the front fog lights—no second click. Same goes for the lights dial—the manual shows that I should be able to turn the dial counterclockwise for the fog lights, but it doesn’t seem like my dial turns that way to the left. Is it possible the dial is stuck or something? Currently, when the car is on and at least the parking light is turned on, however, it appears that the driver’s side fog light is on—so I’m guess either there’s something wrong with a switch/wiring or I accidentally turned it on at some point and don’t know how to operate it properly and turn it back off. Im attaching some pictures of what the lights look like and what my lighting dial looks like. You can see that the fog light is lit on the driver’s side, and is not on the passenger’s. I’d appreciate any help or advice!
I have to admit that I have been lurking on this site for a couple of years now. I purchased a 2002 996 a while back and had a lot of general questions. It turns out a lot of people had similar questions so I never felt the need to post. I owe lots of thanks to several members (THANKS!). Fast forward a couple of years and I have enjoyed my 996 so much I went out and found a 987-1 (2005 Boxster Base, 2.7L, Manual, U.S., Silver with Black Top and Black Interior). This is also a fun car. Now for the question: I am considering upgrading the fog light assemblies and the amber side marker assemblies to aftermarket LED's. I found on ebay a sale for both LED fog lights and both LED side markers from a company called REVi MotorWerks. They claim that these are simple "plug and play" lights. I am pretty handy and do most of my own maintenance so I'm not afraid to tackle a job with medium difficulty but for what I'm paying I just want to plug them in. Can anyone comment on whether or not these lights are worth the time, effort, and money. I have read several posts from members that have done LED conversions and then end up with error codes because of voltage or current discrepancies. I'm hoping that these newer aftermarket lights account for that in their circuitry. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
