1997 Boxster Door Lock Mechanism 

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I just received a driver's side (L) door lock mechanism replacement for my 1997 Porsche Boxster. However, the wiring harnesses/connectors are different. Everything else is exactly the same. Please see attached photos. Any recommendations? Maybe an adapter? 

 

The part number is worn off of the old one but the numbers I do see are different, PA 66 30% GF (new), PA 66 30 FG< (old)

 

Any ideas would be much appreciated.

Does your car have a factory alarm?  Could be you a lock from a non-alarmed car or visa versa?

 Another possibility is that your car is a late 1997 car which means it might have 1998 parts - the door locks are different between 1997 and 1998.

You can check the driver's door sticker to see what month your car was made - and the same for the donor car.

My car was made in April 1997. Apparently, early model Boxsters only come with 8 pin actuators. I replaced the driver side actuator and now I am having the issue of both windows rolling all the way down when I open the driver side door. I also replaced the convertible top latch switch hoping that could have solved the problem but no luck. Any ideas?

      I recently purchased a 2006 C4S Cabriolet m/t US Model and since my ownership I have been unable to lock the car via the remote and the driver side window does not automatically fully close.  I replaced the latch assembly hoping it would knock out one or both problems but nothing has been resolved.  Fuses look ok to me. Below is further detail and Durametric codes -- is there anything in there that points to likely culprit(s)?
       
      Appreciate your help!
       
      Door will not lock with remote (double beep) or with key.
      I am able to use emergency procedure to lock door (turn key three times) The doors will lock if I hit the locking button inside car. The remote unlocks the car fine. FIXED: Driver Side Door Control Unit/Motor Driver side window drops the 10mm or so when opening door but does not go back up upon closing door.
      If I am in the car I can manually roll up the last 10mm and it will stay up until I touch the handle again. If the door is open and I roll up all the way it drops the 10mm instantly. Passenger side works as expected. FIXED: Driver Side Door Control Unit/Motor: Interior lights stay on.
       
      Potentially unrelated issues/info but will mention just in case
      FIXED: Rear Control Unit was set to Boxster, updated to 997 cabConvertible top when closing will cycle through latching and never stops, but does latch but I have to let go of button.

      I have one key fob that works and one key fob that doesn’t. At least one does. No transmit light on the other with a new battery. Switches feel like they are working. Is there a reset procedure?
      Neither key will work manually in the drivers door lock. Is the door lock electronic or should I feel a mechanical linkage movement?
      Nervous with only one key fob that’s the only way to unlock the car.

      97 boxster all stock. I used my key  to unlock the car and now I got problems....
      I am not sure but I think this is the part that needs to be replaced. I am getting two beeps and sometimes one. I fixed the center lock when I fixed the stick shift. I thought maybe the center glove box might be contributing to the problem but it is not.
      I am not sure if I need this:

      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!

      Since I bought my Boxster the key-fob never worked, so my usual practice
      is to put my key into the cylinder and turn it to unlock.
       
      So this week, I did the procedure I've done hundreds of times, when after opening,
      the resistance I've always felt while turning the lock disappeared! I could now
      turn the key left and right, a full 180 degrees without any resistance. No movement
      in the door latch.
       
      And yet, when I roll the car down the driveway, the door locks do engage and so does the
      latch. Something mechanical must have slipped off the cylinder assembly, and I know I'll
      have to take the door apart to find out,
       
      I'm wondering if anyone has had the same situation and what they've done to fix it.
       
      Thanks1
