Question about 1998 Porsche Boxster
Probably a dirty or corroded joint/microswitch in the fob, open up key and clean with cellulose thinners all soldered joints - flux comes off solder and causes dry joints. blow it dry and reconnect, make sure small springs are extended slightly for fob battery connection to be tight.

If the key had gone faulty, the key code must be re programmed on the vehicle computer. This can be done only using a PIWIS tool, available at the dealer or at a qualified Porche garage.
Try also the following reset:
turn ignition on,
remove the transponder from the column
push any button on the fob within 6 seconds.
This procedure will reset the key synchronizing again with the vehicle computer.

I had the same problem. I locked and unlocked the car with the engine run several time utilizing the dashboard lock button. That fix my problem.
