Tail light problem

Recommended Posts

I've had this '03 Boxster S for about a year now. I was flagged down by another motorist yesterday who told me that my stop lights were out. I check and all three sets were bad. First thing I checked was the fuse, all good. Then I went and bought a few bulbs ... all the bulbs turned out to be fine. Now I'm wondering ... electrical problems?? Anyone out there with a suggestion where to look or a mechanic I can take it to (San Jose area)??

Check the brake switch to start , this is not uncommon. The switch is located on the brake pedal ( the brown one on ROW 986 )

As RF said, it is usually the brake light switch.

If you can't fix it yourself take it to RennShop in Santa Clara for Marvin to look at. Tell him I sent you. http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?a...ODE=03&id=1

I was hanging around Marvin's shop on Friday watching him reseal a 1999 996 with140,000 miles. Marvin is meticious.

Jeff,

Thanks for the recommendation ... I looked for the switch on the car, but could not find it ... it does sound like a switch .... I was hoping it's not related to the PCM ...

I did called Marvin and have an appointment for Wednesday (he's swampped).

Does anyone know the part number for the switch?? Maybe I should order it from Sunset to save a few more $$??
