Question about 1999 Porsche Boxster

2000 porsche boxster won't start.

Put new battery in, it will try to turn over but that is it. Did the same thing before the the new battery. I am thinking it may be the security system needs reset.

    No the batter is not dead but I still can not start the car and believe that it is related to the security system lock down.

Yes removing the battery sets off the security system and locks out the engine from starting, reset it.

When i changed ignition on 2001 ford explorer I ended up having to replace steering column now it wont turn over & the anti theft light flashes & wont stop. what can be done to get car started?


At least you know the anti theft system is working. Jokes aside, I would think that the electronic security system is not recognising the new lock and steering column. You could try leaving the battery completely disconnected for at least 2 or 3 hours to see if the system resets. Reconnect the battery and then try again with the new key. You will have to put the security code back into your radio as well. If this doesn't work, it may need to go to a Dealer to reprogram your electronic system.

Changed ignition switch now security light stays on and truck starts and kills


You need to relearn the passlock system (security). There are 2 ways. One is with a scanner, which most diy'er wont own an expensive one to do it this way, here is the manual way. Start the truck and let it run until it dies. The security light should then be flashing. Leave the key in the run position until the security light stops flashing (about 10-15mins). After the light stops flashing turn the key off. Try to start the truck again. It should do the same thing (run for a few seconds and then die with the security light flashing). Again wait for 10-15 mins for the light to stop flashing and then turn the key off and repeat the process one last time. That's a total of 3 times. Once you finish the process the 3rd time. Let the truck sit for a minute with the key off. It should now be programmed and start and run normally.

It sounds like a security problem. The same thing happened to a friend. He had to take the key to the dealer. It cost about $125. I think they turned the alarm off.

Porsche boxster 2004 headlights and side lights front and rear flicker first thing in a morning when auto choke on. Soon as engine dies down lights are fine for the rest of the day. Tried new light switch...


That's an interesting problem. When you say "flicker" are they flickering on and off, or just dimming a bit? My guess is that it's a problem with the voltage regulator on the alternator, or a problem with the alternator. Could also be a weak or bad battery, but I think you would have problems starting the car too. Check your fuse panel too to be sure they're all in there tight. If one is loose and rattling it could cause an issue like you describe.

1999 porsche boxster ignition will not turn


It could be many things. I would start by checking the Battery. Even if you're seeing lights and power accessories working there may not be enough juice to turn the engine over. If your battery is over 6 years old, especially if it's cold out, then you probably need a new battery.

Car won't start sometimes


Very likely a bad battery. Replace the battery and see if the problem goes away.

HELP with my problem to my Question and added details


A good hot battery shoulde do it. Have you had any problems with the security system? That's all that should keep it from starting now. Have you put a socket on the crank bolt to make sure the engine is not seized and turns freely?
Good luck.

Turn the key and car want say any thing . just put new battery in 3months ago . Im thinking its the starter how can I test to make sure


Hi and welcome to FixYa!

Once you detached the starter you can test it by tapping the starter body to the ground of the battery and the starter solenoid to the positive connector. Make sure you'll have someone to hold the starter to be secured when it kicked. If it doesn't kick then it surely is faulty and needs replacement.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!
