Question about 2000 Porsche Boxster
Battery is dead on my Porsche Boxster S , it has been dead for a couple of months. I had a friend jump start the car for a couple of minutes, lights and windows light up and windows rolled up and down during start up attempts. What could the problem be guys?
Thank you in advance!
If your Boxster is a 2000 model and you still have the original battery in 2009, you are a lucky guy. Modern Porsche OEM batteries generally fail in 4-6 years unless the car is driven frequently or a battery maintainer is used religiously every time the car is parked for anything longer than a day. The service manager at my dealer told me that the battery discharges about 1% per day so do the math.

If the battery is VERY dead it may take quite a while jump start the car. You may have to run the car with the good battery for five or ten minutes to get enough charge in the old battery to start the car. Other wise a very dead battery will just "soak up" the electricity from the good battery. If your battery was old to begin with it may be unserviceable. I would take the battery out and take it to an auto parts store that can charge and test it. They will usually do this for free.
