2000 Boxster radio problem

2000 boxster with OEM radio. Works with key in ignition but once car is started radio shuts off. Radio will turn on once car is heated up. I think it is tied to the cooling fans coming on but not sure. What could it be.

    i dont see the relation of the radio to the fans , check out your fuses on the frt left fuse box , or check out your ignition switch most problems come from the switch , is it returning back from cranc position easy , ist your interior fan, lights ,wipers and other acessories working well or do you have to play with the switch note car will start and motor will run , is your key hard to remove and does it feel stif when turing

SOURCE: Blue smoke sometimes when I start my 2004 Boxster

Te blue smoke is oil getting into the piston/fire chamber..

If it is only at start-up - it is more than likely the valve seals.. Allot of the time they use plastic ones so therefor it is somewhat common for cars to do this..
If it is not to bad and stops soon after start-up,, its not really a big deal..

IF it is allot - and smokes all the time - it could be that the valve seals need to be replaced OR could be the piston rimgs are shot..

Please dont forget to rate well ;o)

I don't have fuse codes. Which one controls my radio 2000 boxster?


I have a Boxter S so I cannot guarantee this answer will be correct. The Fuse Plan is a fan folded ten page tiny sheet attached to the back of the fuse box cover panel. Find the English part buried in there. The fuses on my car are vertical and in rows A-E starting at the top. Then the fuses are numbered 1-10 from left to right. The radio is D-8 and it is a 15 amp fuse. The sound system is D-9 and is also 15 amps. Once you replace the radio fuse, you will need the four digit security code. I had to call the dealer. Good luck.

Ignition locking on by 2001 Porsche Boxster S


It is known for ignition switches to fail. Sometimes they won't turn, other times they leave the starter engaged and sometimes the radio, A/C or wipers won't work. You may crank the car to start sometimes and the key does not spring back from crank to run. Check this first. Good luck....

1999 Boxster won't start sometimes


Yes. It may have a weak magnet on it. Otherwise it would be the ignition or control module. Try replacing key first.

Porsche radio code


The dealership it has been serviced at can usually refer you to an advisor who can give you the code for your radio. Our son had the same problem
