Question about 1998 Porsche Boxster

My roof won't go down.

My 2000 boxster roof won't go down. The button has just gone dead, no sound no nothing! Guessing it's electrical. Any ideas?

    All sorted, thanks. I did check the fuse and it was OK. Thankfully I found another problem the same on here which suggested it might be the microswitch under the handbrake lever which de- activates the hood. Prior dismantalling the centre console I thought, maybe if it's stuck a bit of wiggling of the hand brake might just do it. I released the handbrake and pressed it down with a bit more than usual force several times repeatedly into the off position. Lo and behold, I pressed the button again and it worked!!! Hooray for the internet!!! Thanks so much, had the pound signs flashing before my eyes for a moment!!!

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.

My roof will not go down. The windows do when I unleash the hook. 1996 model. Never had a problem.Same as guy before, no sound, click, nothing. Have checked all my fuses, if blown & made sure in right...


I've got exactly the same problem. As suggested before checked the fuses, checked the brake light comes on don't know what could be the problem. Spoke to an independent porsche mechanic who says its probably a cable jam in the roof. £120 to unjam. I've got my doubts as there is no noise or anything its just dead!! Any joy with your roof any help would be most appreciated.

My slk 2000 roof has just stopped working. It wont go down at al


Sounds like maybe some pin switches for interlocks have gone bad. Open your trunk and look for the rubber booted switches and try holding them or shorting them, if you make the top move it shows you which ones are bad.

Light on dashboard


Yeah you need to hold the button down to close or open the roof, once that light goes off then you can drive!
