windows/alarm double beep - not working! HELP


Recommended Posts

Got in the car, put down the windows.... let the heat out (its been over 100 on Long Island these past few days), rolled the windows back up when the AC started to run. 5 mins down the road went to roll the window down at a FF joint, it doesnt work!!!

Turned car off, tried to lock (my intention was re-set the alarm) I got the double beep, and it didnt lock my doors. Checked fuses, one was blown, replaced, it blew again immediatly. Disconnected the battery and replaced. when i connected the battary again, it blew.

Now my windows dont go down and I have no radio, cause i dont know the code.

Issue 1 - most important - whats wrong with my fuse block - does anyone have a wiring diagram, or ahd this happen to them?

Issue 2 - how can i retrieve the code to the radio?

Thanks All!

I'm having the same problem. This happened to me about 2 months ago, replaced the fuse and all was well.

Go into the car today and the fuse was blown again.

Any ideas as to what I should be looking for? I would love to avoid a trip to the mechanic.

(edited) fyi - I've got a 1999 996 Coupe. I didn't realize I'd ended up in a boxster forum during the search.

Any chance you have a water leak and water has gotten to the alarm/central locking control box under the driver's seat?

I would see if the carpet under the driver seat is wet or damp...

No water under the seat. Any other things I could check before going to the shop?

Thanks

My issue went to the shop, turned out that my convirtible top latch had over time kinked the wire near the dome lights. It then shorted the + and - causing the fuse to blow. The alarm connection was blown to the windows, thus they wouldnt go down and caused the double beep. the top continued to work, because the top moter wires arnt anywhere near there. To check this, take off your trim piece. it requires a phillips scre driver and 10 mins. Take off thew sun visors, take off the corner screws, the whole thing accross the top comes down. Look at your wires!
