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.

Air bag warning lights appears on the dash board every time I turn on the ignition on my 1998 Porsche Boxster


You need to have the airbag serviced as there is an error somewhere. it also means that the airbag will not deploy in an accident, so you should get this looked at by someone with experience troubleshooting airbag problems asap.

Why is my gear console lights off?


Check your fuses, if they all look good then you probably have a loose wire. The fuse panel is in the drivers foot well on the left side.

They are supposed to stay on. Why would they blink? Are you referring to the turn signals? They're the only ones that should blink.

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

1 st gear ok 2nd gear loses power rpm goes high


Check engine light on?

Is it a manual or auto? Assuming its a manual, is there an ABS light on? If so or if you hace changed the brake pads recently or even had the tires off or rotated, there could be a problem in the brake pad sensor or abs wheel speed sensor.

Check with Porsche service (your closest dealer) for recalls or TSB (Technical Service Bulletins) related to your concern and check the cayman/boxster owners clubs for similar posts and resolutions.

Hope that helps.
