Could this be a faulty fuel vapor charcoal cannister purge VALVE stuck open or intermittently sticking open, venting fresh fuel vapors into the engine creating an extremely RICH condition and hard start?

SOURCE: manually openning the trunk of a 2002 porsche boxster

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.

SOURCE: 2002 Porsche Boxster - had squealing coming from

Mine did that off and on for a month with no other problems then it started making a loud suction noise and the check engine light came on. I took it to the dealer and they said the "oil separator" needed to be replaced.
After the repair I never heard the squealing again.

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.

2000 Porsche boxter windows work top won't go down


Good Day,
I just looked at my wiring diagram and see that a fuse from fuse Holder D, Fuse D3,it is a 30amp fuse. I would start here. I may also be a good idea to have a test light if you plan on doing your electrical repairs.

I also see that another fuse connects to your top control unit; it will be fuse B6, 15amp located in fuse Holder B.

Thanks and good luck.

Normal for a Boxster shifter to move a little on acceleration?


I have had vehicles do that, the amount of torch the engine is putting against the transmission makes the engine and tranny tilt to one side. This is normal. If you watch a truck (pick up) or a car at stop, idle high (reving up and down) you will see the front of the car slightly rock from side to side. This is the torque that the engine is pushing against the tranny; since the engine and tranny are bolted to the frame, the engine and tranny can only move so far; therefore the whole car/truck will move - and yes, as well as the tranny shifter. You can take it in and have the tranny mounts checked to be sure, but I'm sure it's fine.
