Question about 2001 Porsche Boxster
Replace alternator,replace battery also keep it plug to a charger .the dealer can not find the problem.
Replace or renew ??chances are that if secondhand you have someone elses problem.how long does it take to run battery down?? have you disconnected battery and put an amp meter between cable and battery terminal to measure discharge ,does battery still go flat when disconnected .do you have a big amplifier in the boot .chances are you have answered your own question.work with elimination as the one thing that can cause a battery to discharge is a diode in the alternator.next is a radio /interior light or boot light ,amplifer in boot for the sound ,,now if the battery goes flat disconnected then renw the battery .or drain the acid out then flush it out with a hose ,swill with distilled water then refill with acid ,sounds drastic but it often works as a bit of paste can short a plate across.have a play because thats all a mechanic would do.And as for a dealer chances are that if you changed these parts yourself then they would not be very coperative to say the least .
