'06 Boxster window/heated seats

Recommended Posts

I had accidentely lft my spare key in the ignition, totally killing the battery. AFter getting things re-charged, I have two problems;

1. My windows won't close after exiting the car.

2. heated seats won't work, and I can't find the fuse listed on the fuse diagram.

I have checked all the fuses, could it be the emergency fuse that opens the trunk lid?

Thanks All

Try resetting the windows:

Perform the following procedure for all power windows:

· Actuate rocker switch and fully close window once.

· Actuate rocker switch once more to close.

The upper end position of the window is stored.

· Actuate rocker switch and fully open window once.

· Actuate rocker switch once more to open.

The lower end position of the window is stored.

Sorry, I can't help you with the heated seats.

Regards,

For your windows that won't close properly after loss of battery power, you have to "retrain" them as follows:

Close the windows with the rocker switch once.

Then press the rocker switch upwards again to store the end position of the windows in the control unit. (Sometimes you have to hold the switch in that position for five seconds depending on your year Boxster, IIRC).

Do the same procedure for the fully open position.

Let us know how you make out.

Regards, Maurice.

I followed your instructions, and it is still not closing "up" when I close the doors. I checked the fuses again and they are fine. Any more suggestions?

That is unusual, as that exact procedure is described in the Owner's Manual.

This is a longshot, but I cannot imagine anything else that would affect the operation of the windows other than the immobiliser (under the driver's seat). Check for any moisture or dampness under and behind the driver's seat and the thick foam padding under the carpeting. If the immobilizer gets wet, it will also affect the window operation.
