Question about 1998 Porsche Boxster
My boyfriend is unable to operate his convertible roof on his Porsche Boxster which has been sitting outside his house for a while. The car is a 1998 model on a (T) reg. The windows and indicators both work. Could it be a fuse or somethng more technical?
I had the same issue, and I found out there is a switch under the center console that is depressed when the hand brake is engaged. sometimes this swith gets stuck. u can unscrew a portion of the center console from the ashtray i believe and unjam the switch. i hope it helps

Amazing!! Really frustated, was a lovely sunny day after work today and the roof wouldn't come off, got home tried to fix it by looking at the fuse but that was ok. Googled "my boxster roof wont work" and came here, the solution was perfect, now works! and the sun has gone in! Thank you very much

Actually, there is a small panel that is at the Emergency Brake handle. To remove it, just pry at the top with a small flat tool, e.g. a butterknife, and remove it. The switch that you are looking for is a "micro-switch" which is the one directly below the handle assembly. If you cross the two wires going into the micro-switch, you can test if this IS the problem. You can cross them with a paperclip, as this is non-damaging to the wires, and coupling. IF this works, tyou must relace the switch, ifit doesn't work, then try the relay over the left foot of the driver. It is the BIG one that goes all the way across the panel. It is centerally located, and is double sized. It is longways horizontally. GOOD LUCK! Thanks for calling FixYa.com
