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!
Have a 996 C4S Cabriolet and while topping off my hydraulic fluid this am (having problems closing top in the heat), I inadvertently did something that now has the car not starting, draining my battery, registering airbag and failure roll-over indicators, automatically extending the rear wing... Now when pressing the button to lower the top, it's providing intermittent power and clicking. I tried to follow a DIY on this site but couldn't get the fluid to stay in the hole. So I unbolted the hydraulic pump and turned it upside down. Still couldn't get fluid in so I put everything back together and called it a day. Tried to start the car and got all the errors listed above. Could I have shorted something out in the process?
