Have a 2000 Boxster S, aftermarket, pro installed stereo. Last year, I installed a backup camera and it worked well. While backing out of my garage yesterday morning, I noticed it wasn't working. After coming home from work, popped the trunk and started troubleshooting, and found that the power wire wasn't carrying power from the radio (where I jumped power from) to the back of the car. It was getting late so started to pack things up for another day when I noticed my radio had no power going to it, wouldn't turn on. I thought--hey this looks like a fuse issue, but when I checked fuses D8 and D9, they were fine...checked the fuse on the radio and it was fine as well.
Then the real fun began--turned the key and it the car didn't make a sound...wouldn't turn over,no clicking, cranking, or otherwise! I thought--could have drained the battery with all the troubleshooting so I trickle charged it overnight and still no luck.
It is acting like a Boxster acts if you don't fully depress the clutch while trying to start it--the instrument cluster lights all turn on, the climate control, windows, and top all work (although the aftermarket mod to the top switch that allows for one-touch closing of the top stopped working).
I was thinking of disconnecting the battery for an hour or so just to see if it helps, read it in some forums...will this erase the error codes?
Thought it might not hurt to go through all the fuses to see if any have blown...thinking that the power line for the backup camera (which wasn't carrying power from the front to the back of the car for my backup camera) might have lost insulation and may be causing a short somewhere causing a fuse to blow?
Could electrical gremlins have thrown my security system? If that happens do all the dash lights still light when turning the key like mine does?
Thanks in advance!
