Me and my dad have recently bought a 2001 Porsche Boxster that has not been run in 2 years, as a "fairly easy" project to start with. So where to begin we did all the basics for a car that hasn't run in 2 years, we replaced the spark plugs and tubes, so then when we tried to throw some gas in it wont let us, we have checked the E6 fuse as was suggested on other forums, we slowly threw in some gas at a time, about 5 gallons in total. When we tried to start it it didn't, so when we tried to troubleshoot we found that it has no spark. So does anyone have any idea or suggestions on how to fix any or all of these things?

      I have a 2003 Boxster base model (2.7) with auto. Current showing code P0600 and DTE 61. Had a few different Porsche mechanics look at the issue and have not found a solution.  Cleaned the electrical connection at the transmission and verified the ground connections at the tiptronic control module. Had the DME, tiptronic module and immobilizer checked and they were found to be working.
       
      Does the Can-bus connection between the DME and the tiptronic module extend to the immobilizer or other modules? All I could find is information up to the 2001 model year.
       
      Looking for a reason why the DME Is not communicating with the tiptronic and how to test the Can-bus circuit.  Is there a wiring schematic available for the 2003/2004 boxster?
       
      Thanks,

      Hello Renntech Community. Hope everyone has had a lovely day/ evening. Well... After owning 2 previous porsche's there is no doubt we all run into A LOT of issues. I have an 04 Boxster S with 117K miles on her. Well taken care of, just recently had an oil change. While driving my car on the interstate i felt a drag in the acceleration.It felt like the clutch was slipping but after driving it a little more it cleared up...  (Previously was an oil leak, I tightened the drain plug and added more oil prior to this incident and all was well) Then, while driving the car would accelerate any more, I attempted to downshift but it kept happening. The car died after I pulled off on the highway and after continuous hours of attempting and failing I called a flat bed and had her taken home. I ran tests on the relay, All is well with it. I added gas and a octane booster to attempt to clean it out. That didnt work. Checked fuses and those are all good. I suspect a fuel pump but Im not sure. Thank you!
       
      - Hopefully this is all enough information to help me out

      Hi all 986 guys.
      I will post for the first time.
      I have '98 986K(Tip-s),Can I swap 5-Speed(or 6-Speed) manual transmission?
      In other words, prepare missions, pedals, manual transmission CPUs, etc. like a typical car model (for ex, BMW).
      Is it possible to update only the mission, not the upgrade to 3.4L?
      Has anyone ever seen or heard of such a vehicle?
      I can find 986K 5speed as much as I want, but I want to stick to my one.
       
      Thank you!!

      1999 986 2.5 Boxster. (5 spd)
       
      Not many problems with the car but cruise control doesn’t work and the spoiler only extends halfway or so.
       
      Current actual problem with the car is that I  can feel vibration or shaking in the steering wheel (and in the car to a much lesser extent) after shifting into fourth gear. After shifting into fourth gear, the shaking seems to persist even as I slow down, or after shifting into fifth. It will persist even if I shift into neutral but will stop after I come to a stop.
       
      It’s strange to me that this is the case when gears 1-3 don’t have this problem. I am guessing that it’s an issue with bearings or alignment in the front wheels since i’m feeling the vibrations in the wheel but hopefully someone here has a better idea.
