(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. ?
Dear Forum Users, firstly thank you in advance for any contributions, they are much appreciated. The Background; I'm coming from a low knowledge-base, though am fairly good at following instructions, I don't have enough experience to diagnose problems. I have a '99 Boxster, owned for nearly 2 years. Unitl recently this was my primary car in everyday use and worked pretty much perfectly (though I'm sure it could do with a little TLC). I recently moved to a new job with company car provided, meaning the Boxster is used much less. I've endevoured to drive it every couple of days to keep things running smoothly, however, very stupidly, due to bad weather I left it completely inactive for a about three weeks. The Problem; I came to start the car after three or so weeks and got the 'clicking' sound at the point of ignition. I presumed this meant the battery was dying. I purchased some jump leads and returned the car a couple of days later, now the battery was completely dead, couldn't even open the bonet/hood. I searched the forums and found the emergency release cable. I excitedly hooked up the jump leads to my company car and Boxster. Immediately all the electronics, including fan, worked perfectly. I turned the key in anticipation only to be met with the 'clicking' sound and no ignition. I waited a few seconds and tried again, same thing. I tried again holding the key in the final position, only to get a repeated clicking. At one point the car did sound like it was about to fire, it almost jerked a little, but then went back to clicking so I stopped. The clicking sound was definitely coming from the engine. Your help is much, much appreciated, I can't wait to hear the sound of the engine firing again!
