igniton/electric gremlins

Recommended Posts

i have a 2002 boxster that is behaving strangely.... im having trouble getting the key in and definitely getting it out of the ignition switch, it doesn't seem to have that positive kind of "SNAP" when i turn the ignition off,

then the headlights are very dim and have to pull on the stalk to put the brights on as they wont go on by pushing the stalk away from me... then the AC wont come on and the wipers and washer have decided to go on vacation as well...... have visually checked all the fuses in the footwell and they are ok (thanks for the fuse list Loren !)

Any suggestions would be very welcome...

if i take it to the dealer and they plug it in to the diagnostic how much information does that thing provide

im pretty good with problem solving so can take on a challenge,

Thanks in advance

It could be your ignition switch is going bad. My Boxster S started acting up where the lights would turn on but were very dim and the heating / cooling blower didn't work. I was able to turn the ignition key slightly to the left and everything would magically start working. Had the ignition switch replaced and that fixed the problem.
