I am the owner of a 2001 tip boxster 38000 miles and am having locking problems. I went to a local indie who found two codes 61 and 47. One is a communication problem but he couldn't find the description of the other. Which is which, I do not remember. In any event, I was getting the double beep sporadically. The gas lid needed to be unlocked using the key in the door and the passenger door had to be released from the inside. He cleared the codes and we are now looking for further guidance in fixing the issue. When I picked the car up and locked it, double beep came on with the unlocking. We or he thinks the alarm module may be defective. What do you think? :renntech: :renntech:

Had a similar, but not exactly the same issue, with my Boxster after I had removed the radio. There's a ground contact on the side of the radio that tells the alarm system that the radio is still in place. If you don't get the radio back in correctly it'll cause the system to double beep when it's armed. Doesn't explain the gas door problem though which could be caused by a defective fuel door locking mechanism. If it's not locking that may be causing the alarm fault.

If the passenger door isn't unlocking with the remote, it sounds more to me like it could be the passenger-side door lock actuator rather than the alarm system. Does the passenger door lock/unlock using the dash button?
