I purchased a 1999 Porsche Boxster 986 about a year ago and I'm having a few problems with the electrical accessories. The top worked fine when I bought it, but now it won't work sometimes. The radio also turns on, then immediately off at startup, and it won' turn back on until a few minutes later either by itself, when I use turn signals, power windows, brake, or even just by itself. After the car is "warmed up", then it will stay on. Other things won't work right or not at all, such as the alarms for, ignition, door open, light switches, etc. The fuses are all fine, and I know the battery had been replaced right before I purchased it. I haven't checked the relay for the top, but I am about to do that now. I feel like there could be a single problem creating all these issues. Any help would be greatly helpful and appreciated!
I hope one of you knowledgeable guys can help. My 2005 Boxster S 987-1 heated seats don't work. No light on the dashboard switches. The wiring diagram I have says the fuse for the heated seats is fuse F2 80A in fuse holder B (under left side at dash at kick panel). I'm assuming being a UK car it means right side (drivers side) at kick panel. Fuses in that fuse box are in rows A-E, no row F, and the highest rating is 30A So I assume there must be at least one or more fuse/relay boxes somewhere else. Can anyone point me in the right direction to find this pesky fuse. Thanks in advance.
Hello Porsche fans, I have just purchased my first 928 and she is a beauty. It's only been a few weeks. Now I'm doing what I love the most which is tinker and make it even more perfect. On a recent cruise, I noticed that the engine temp got really hot (after being idle for a minute or two). I was just around the corner so I went home immediately. The red light litt up as I pulled in the garage. I parked it immediately and turn her off. the previous owner mentioned that the fan should run even after you turn the car off and remove the key but no such thing happen. I also notice that coolant started dripping on the floor. I determined that it was just coming from the reservoir from the overheating. with that, I was confused because the fan didn't kick in. I took the car out again today and she seems to stay cool when running at speed (35mph or more). but once again would heat up when stopped at lights or driving at slow speeds. I could not hear the fan kick in at all. But I noticed something strange, the fan inside the car cabin would kick in on bust for about 10 secs randomly. At any point it would just blow at top speed even with the control knob turned off! what's up with that? this is my first 928 and I'm looking for some direction. I should also mention that the fan was changed to an electric one. Hopefully that doesn't complicate things too much. Any help is appreciated. Roch.
Hey all, I have an intermittent issue with a convertible top on a 2003 Boxster. After the car has sat for over a week the convertible top won't go up or down via the switch on the dash. Thanks to the great advice on these forums I was able to eliminate a lot of potential problems (parking break dash light, micro switches, blown fuses). Then I came to some suggestions involving the relay panel and, sure enough, if I pull a relay and put it back in, the convertible top switch on the dash works again. What I can't figure out is why this works. It seems like I'm pulling the wrong relay? I 'borrowed' this pic from another thread because the relay panel looks the same as mine. Everything I've been reading says that the convertible top relay is the long rectangular white box. However, when I pull the smaller white box to the right of it and put it back in, the one with the blue sides (see pic below), the top works again. In case anyone can't see it from the above, here's another pic... The relay I pull to get the top to work again is the one to the right of the yellow outline: Does anyone know why the top works by pulling the wrong box, to the right of what should be the convertible top relay? What is this relay, and if I replace it would it alleviate the issue?
