Okay folks I just picked up MY2001 C4. I have a mystery light and the lower trunk/hood release lights stay on after leaving the vehicle. The courtesy lighting all fades to black afet 30 seconds but these remain on after that until I lock the doors and then they go out.

My question is is there a way to program them off? Or is there something I am missing???

Thanks in advance!!!

From the Owners manual pages 112 - 113...

Orientation light
Light-emitting diodes in the doors and in the interior light improve your orientation inside the vehicle when it is dark.
The light-emitting diodes are switched on when the vehicle is unlocked and switched off again when the vehicle is locked.
Light-emitting diode in the interior light
Changing the brightness of the light-emitting diode:
~ Press switch C with a pointed object (such as a ball-point pen).
The brightness changes.

The frunk & engine lid lights on the open switches stay on for about 2 hours after exiting the vehicle unless you lock the it.

I recall Loren stating months ago this is normal.

Loren, my '04 C2 doesn't have the C switch on my dome lens, but it does have a switch on the mirror assembly that produces 2 different settings. I have repeatedly looked for the C in the past. Am I missing something?

Yes, if you have anti-glare rear view mirror then it is button D.

Thank you for the replies. So, the trunk/engine compartment lights will go off in a couple hours on their own. The orientation lights stay on as long as the vehicle is open? You must lock car to turn the orientation lights off? I pressed the little button on the overhead light "D" on my page 95 (MY MANUAL - WKD 996 02101) I usually don't lock my garage cars.

Thanks again. I found the C switch for the standard mirror. It only dims he over head orientation light. My question is now will the orientation lights voltage draw drain the battery or is the draw the same as the anti theft system?

      Hi Guys, I am a new member of this community and I am very happy to be here. 
      My name is Mathias and I just bought my very first car. I am university student so I wanted a cool, sports car and as I live in Dubai, the weather is warm so a convertible was ideal. I have therefore just bought my first car, the Porsche Boxster, 2006. As this is my first car, and I have bought it as the 3rd owner. I have a lot of questions about how I should maintain the car, and hope you guys can help😎🏎
       
      So first of all, it’s a Porsche Boxster in a beautiful red, with a black soft top, from 2006 that has driven approx. 80,000 km. 
      it has a beige interior.
       
      1) the paint inside the car has scratches and shows the black color under the beige coating. How can I fix this? 
       
      2) the speakers and radio signal is very poor and I want to be able to play music via Bluetooth and aux, is this possible? 
       
      3) is it possible to set up Cameras in the car, for parking? 
       
      4) there are scratches on the exterior, and I took it to the Porsche center, and they said they do not have a perfect match to this color as they don’t make it in this specific red anymore. Is there anything I can do? 
       
      5) the leather inside is looking a little bit worn, is it possible to fix this up? 
       
      6) lastly, is there any mods, DIY upgrades or accessories you recommend I to add to this 2006 Boxster?

      I have a 2007 C2S manual with about 132K on the odometer.  A low oil pressure light has started to show up at idle after the car is warmed up.  It seems as if the light is gradually coming on more frequently.  The pressure gage on the dash reads around 0.5 bar when the light comes on.  When the car is cold the starting pressure is around five bar and is about 3 bar at 3000rpm.  As it warms up the pressure drops to about 2 bar at 3000rpm.  I always run 0-40W Mobil 1 and change the oil every 5K miles.  With the engine off and turning the key one click the pressure gage rises to about 0.1-0.2 bar.
       
      Can anyone help me diagnose this issue?  Would be a sensor or something mechanical?

      Hi there, my Cayenne is telling me my driver's side door is open when it is not. This is causing the dome light to stay on. Not sure what the issue is and if can be fixed easily. Any info given is greatly appreciated, thanks!

      I have a 2004 Cayenne S. I just got it recently, interior lights have never worked. I checked the fuse and it was blown. It calls for a 20 amp fuse but the blown one in it was a 25 amp. I had the key in the ignition if I remember correctly and put the new 20 amp fuse in and everything came on. Side note, I noticed a weird glitch with the light above the rear passenger side door and the switch on the main map reading light. The interior lights had gone off and I turned the back on and the backlight above to passenger side door was very dim. I slid the switch on the overhead console for the main map light and the rear light came back to full strength. I found that odd. Everything then worked fine. I took the key out. Next time I put the key in, immediately heard the fuse blow. Any ideas on where to start?

      This is a vid that shows removal of a Panamera headlight.  Easy but useful to refer to, by those not frequent to fixing vehicles themselves.  Can definitely save money here by DIY.
