Welcome to RennTech.org Community, Guest
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. Rear right window at times does not close on first try FIXED: Rear Control Unit was set to Boxster, updated to 997 cabSpoiler button does not do anything but spoiler can be activated w/ Durametric AWS module can not be found (I disabled in other modules) Aftermarket radio is installed

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.

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.

I'm having electrical issues with my 2000 Boxster S.
My windows drop when the doors are opened, but they do not respond to the window controls. They do not come down when the Convertible top handle is pulled.
The doors do not lock or unlock with the console button or the remote. I can only lock the driver door.
The defrost button does not respond.
I replaced the C3 and D1 fuses even though they looked and tested good.
I'm getting 13 volts (when the car is on) at the C3 and D1 positions.
I pulled the console and tested voltage to the switches and couldn't find any voltage between any two of the many wires going to each switch.
I replaced the module under the driver seat with a new one from Suncoast Porsche and had my local dealer reprogram the new one from the old one's data. The only difference is that my convertible top started working soon after that.
I read in other postings about SPDT relays that are just above the fuses, but I can't find any information about which relay would be affecting these components.
Any ideas on next steps?
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.
