I purchased a 1999 Porsche Boxster 986 about a year ago and I'm having a few problems with the electrical accessories. The top worked fine when I bought it, but now it won't work sometimes. The radio also turns on, then immediately off at startup, and it won' turn back on until a few minutes later either by itself, when I use turn signals, power windows, brake, or even just by itself. After the car is "warmed up", then it will stay on. Other things won't work right or not at all, such as the alarms for, ignition, door open, light switches, etc. The fuses are all fine, and I know the battery had been replaced right before I purchased it. I haven't checked the relay for the top, but I am about to do that now. I feel like there could be a single problem creating all these issues. Any help would be greatly helpful and appreciated!
As the title says, the front fog lights are always on. Head light switch is in the off position. I replaced the headlight switch and it didn't help. Pulled the fuse and relay (#12) and they stayed on. All other light functions (parking lights, headlights, rear fog lights, and park lights) all turn on and off like normal.
The fog light problem happened about 4 months ago and I cannot think of anything I changed to cause this.
Any suggestions what I should try next?
