Back rear light - circuit board

Recommended Posts

My back rear light unit works, but is dim and triggers the warning light on the dash.  My mechanic says the circuit board on the light unit is bad and all. we need to do is replace that circuit board.  However, they can't find where to get it.  So I thought I would try this forum and see where one can find such circuit board unit.  2005 Boxster S

I don’t believe Porsche ever offered the tail light’s internal components separately, only providing assembled lights.


Normally, dim running lights are a sign of a weak or corroded ground connection.

Thank you for your response.  The contacts look good and the lights work.  Just not the circuit board.  Was trying to avoid having buy a whole new light unit if possible.


Perhaps a salvage yard then...

Yes, I was just wondering if there's a parts store like Mitas Miata or Rockin Auto that services Porsche parts at a discount.


Unfortunately, the words "Porsche" and "discount" tend to be mutually exclusive....................😵
