I have a 2002 porsche boxster and the dash light will not turn until I lock the door manually.


This is a problem with Porsche cars. What you need is a trickle charger or use the car on a more regular basis to keep the battery charged. If you have a garage with power get yourself a trickle charger and leave the battery on charge when not using the car. If this is not posible charge the battery up fully start the car and see if your dash lights go out. If they don't go off it might be your alternator is not working, get it checked out, or do it yourself if you can.

Battery went dead on car, car security system is in safe mode and want let car start, when you unlock the car alarm sounds and want do anything else, Battery has been replaced, can i reset the alarm if so...


Hello,

The new battery should have reactivated the alarm? If this is a keyless entry, than your original code should work?

If it doesn't than you need to call the dealer, or seervice provider for your alarm system there has to be a reset code, or a new one has to be provided?

I would try your normal code first! If it works, your good, if not, your going to be on the phone! No body but the place you purchased your vehicle from or the Alarm system provider can give you that answer!

Kind Regards!

The battery on my 2000 Porsche Boxster is dead and the car is locked. How do I access the interior to release the hood?


The easiest way is to buy a cheap battery charger, one that plugs into your cigarette lighter socket. Allow the battery to charge for a few hours and then release the trunk when it has come up enough. The most likely reason for your battery going down is a faulty alternator. I just went through this problem with a friend. He bought a new battery and it went flat over night. He replaced the ignition switch (common problem), still went flat over night. Even though the alternator was charging great when the car was running, it was drawing current when the car was parked. We ended up getting a brand new alternator off ebay for $135., the dealer wanted $1900., local parts stores about $500.
The alternator was pretty easy to install and it solved the problem.

The boxster has been sat for a while and the battery was flat. after starting it and taking round about 20 miles I thought it would have enough charge. however the alarm went off and now it keeps going off...


Really should diconnect he battery and charge it up for a day or so. Then give it a spin. Shd be OK. The low batery level is playing havoc with the security system sending false signals triggering various states of lay up mode.

UNABLE TO OPEN BOOT DUE TO FLAT BATTERY ON PORSCHE BOXSTER


Sounds like the battery went dead with the security system on. This means you cannot pull bonnet handle.

To release the bonnet, buy a male-2-male cigarette lighter cable at any auto part store. Connect the cable between the two cars. (WARNING: Do not try to start the car with this configuration.) Unlock the door with the key and the bonnet should open. Now you can service or jumper the battery.

Note: Some porsches also have a red pull-out jumper by the fuse box.
