  • 2000 Boxster S, 6 Speed with a 3.2 engine.

I apologize if this topic has been posted before.

The fact is I haven't found an answer that seems to come close enough to represent my car's problem. 

I say this after spending many hours searching the other Porsche' Boxster S related forums or blogs, I decided this was the place to search for an answer.

On this site you folks seem to be the more knowledgeable and mutually respectable of each other.

So, to the point.

What initiated the repair - When I would close the door, the driver's window would not seal with the window. Once the closed if I slightly dropped the window then close it sealed fine.

Thinking the window needed to be slightly tilted inward I began to follow Bentley's (Boxster Service Manual) instructions to remedy my car's problem.

Most likely, due to my misunderstanding of the instructions, somehow I got out of 'some' sort of sequence.

Not realizing my blunder, I determined I was finished.

OK, here's where things start to go downhill.

Before I started to button it up as it where, I reconnected the battery and I began to recheck it's operation. Note: here is where I think I screwed up.

Not reading the very last step in the instructions, it was here I began operating the windows. Of course I thought I fixed it, I did NOT.

After moving the window a few times, I so pleased with myself I started playing both windows. Suddenly they both stopped working. I started to panic and disconnected the battery waited a few minutes and reconnected it. But, to no avail. But, the window's auto drop and auto raise still worked as it was doing since before I started this journey into the house of horrors. Great, just in time for Halloween. 


Beside the windows not working, I noticed something else.

The courtesy lights, interior and the lights in the doors stopped working as well as both trunk lights.

And here's another thing. When I started the car, it acted like the computer put the engine into some sort of ‘Limp Mode’. It would barely idle, and when I gave it some throttle it hesitated and then accelerate. However, the engine didn't come on full song until after around 2200 to 2500 revs. From there, oh how glorious it was.

Any help, I couldn't say how much I would appreciate your infinite knowledge and your kindness for sharing.

Really man, thanks to anyone who can help an old curmudgeon out his perpetual fog.
