Remote Entry / Window


Recommended Posts

Hello,

First, I would like to say THANK YOU!!!

I love this site!!!

It has been a great resource!

I had the dreaded convertible / clam shell / cable issue and have learned how to do my own maintenance!!!

Looking forward to trying to repair the screeches on my rims!

Anyway, I have a 1997 Boxster and was wondering if anybody else has had theses problems.

Problem 1

When using my key remote it makes a terrible buzzing noise in the drivers door by the door handle.

The drivers door will not unlock by the key remote.

I have to lock the door manually with the key.

The remote will unlock the passages door.

Also, when turning the key in the door lock, sometimes it feels as if the key will not turn.

It feels like there is something inside blocking.

Problem 2

I’m having issues with the drivers door window.

Intermittently, when I lift up on the handle the window does not drop down.

So, the window is stuck in the weather-stripping.

Also, it happens when opening the door from inside the vehicle.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!!

If you are going to do this yourself then you need to remove the door panel and see what is going on inside.

The noise is usually from a bad electric door lock actuator. The lack of window drop is from a bad window regulator or switch on the door handle. I am not sure if one is related to the other. You need the panel off so you can see what is the cause.

Both are not uncommon problems.

Thanks!

I'll be doing the work myself.

I'll get back with you after this weekend.

I'm planning on taking the door panel off then.
