Not familiar with the Porsche, but one thing worth checking it the Ignition fuse in the fuse panel. I had a car in the past that burnt that fuse when the battery was low on power and we tried to crank it.
Hope this helps.

Good Luck

Cut car off now its doin nothing won't click won't do anything


The first thing to check is the battery. Turn on the inside dome light. If it fails to light, then check the battery itself for voltage. If it is totally dead, then have the charging system checked. The battery seldom dies completely unless there is a bigger issue, such as a bad alternator. If the dome light works, with it on, try turning the key to the start position. One of three things should happen.

1. The light goes completely out, and nothing else happens. This may still be a battery issue. The starter requires a considerable amount of current to activate, and a dead battery will prevent this. The car would cut off once the battery voltage drains below approximately 8 volts.

2. The light stays the same brightness. This would mean that the starter circuit is malfunctioning, since the current needed to start the car should make the light dim slightly during cranking.

3. The light dims slightly. If this occurs without any other indications, it could be a bad starter. Usually the solenoid kicks in, engaging the starter to the flywheel. This action starts the starter motor turning. If there is some issue with the starter solenoid, it could be trying to engage, but not successfully.

Of the three issues above, my best guess would be #1. You my have had a bad alternator or regulator diode and discharged the battery below the level to operate the vehicle. The battery may be able to be recharged, but its life would be shortened considerably. The real issue is to fix the charging problem. This is usually an alternator or regulator (if the regulator is separate from the alternator).

I have a fiesta 04 plate and the immobiliser is on how do i turn it off


They are all different but many systems will work if you leave key turned to on for 5 to15 minutes or so (need good battery) and then click right to start. Bigger issue may be chip key or ignition "reader" in vehicle may have lost contact due to age.

My car won't start. And I changed my alternator a month ago


Your car won't start as in the battery is dead? In other words, the engine does not turn over OR the engine does turn over, but the car does not start?? The alternator has nothing to do with starting the car. The battery starts the car. So is your battery dead? An alternator will not charge a battery that has seen better days. Take the car in (if you can) to autozone or advance auto and have them test the battery.

Check to see if the battery is loose, maybe its not on tight enough, otherwise it could be a bigger problem.
