Question about 2000 Porsche Boxster

Open Question

Porsche boxster door lights on while driving

Is it normal for the interior lights in the doors of my Boxster to stay on, or is this a malfunction? I have had the car for two years and thought it was a feature until I was told they should go out when the car is in motion. Has anyone else had this and if so how can the problem be solved?

This is a common problem. Your alarm was on when the battery went dead. When the alarm activated, the hood/bonnet opening lever locks to prevent thieves from opening the hood in case the top is down. Some boxsters have a jumper post the pulls out near the fuse box. However, I do not think the 1997-1999s have this post.

Buy a male-to-male cigarette lighter adapter at the auto store. Connect between your car's cigarette lighter socket and the other car's cigarette lighter socket. Do not try to start the ignition or the any other electronics. You should not even need the key in the ignition. You should be able to pop the door locks with the remote and open the bonnet.

You probably have a loose wire to the gear console switch, or a bad board somewhere. Check to see that you have voltage going to the lights in the console.

That's normal, but they should turn off after a couple minutes. Are they staying on longer than that?

Porsche Boxster S 986 persistent squeak behind my head.


My 986 does the same thing. I realized that opening the door made the squeaking stop. Assuming it was cause by the the door rubbing against the jam, I tried to quiet it using tape (as a buffer) , silicone spray, grease, etc. Sorry to say, no luck yet. I'm thinking of just removing the door. Well, actually both doors to keep it symmetrical. Let me know if your squeak is caused by the same thing and if you find a solution which is better than mine.

Passenger window not dropping on my 99 boxster


Hello There

I think the best is to take the door panel off and see.
It is very posible that your micro switch is bad,or if you can see anything inside the door brokenon the door handle itself.
The switch is 996 613 126 00 Porsche part number

It can only be done using the key fob. Othersise use button inside the car. If your battery is flat you need a donor battery wiring to a connection in the fuse box (positive) anf door lock(negative) but see your hand book.
