Check the switch on the dash, to see if its getting and sending power to the motor which is located on the back wall under the clamshell. you can access it and check to see if power is getting to the motor. if it is, then it is your motor. if not it could be your switch.also there are 2 relays under your dash, that controls your top going up and down. #14 and 15 also you must make sure your emergency brake is on. all the way up.

1998 boxster top switch does not respond dash light indicates micro switch is functioning, latch micro switch is functioning but top is not response when the top up or down switch in engaged, top worked...


There are 3 microswitches on the Boxster, one in the hand brake that triggers the "Park" light on the dash, a second switch in the top latch, that drops the windows a few inches when open and allows the windows to roll all the way up when latched. There is a third switch under the clam shell that indicates the top is fully open or fully closed . There is also a speed sensor in the top controller in the fuse box that prevents the top from opening if the speedo shows greater than zero mph. If pulling the parking brake triggers the dash light and the top still won't operate, the latch switch is likely the culprit. I recently replaced mine on my '99.

Hi John, It sounds to me like your switch is bad. I would order a new one and replace it. if that doesn't work you can usually return the switch. just be sure and check the return policy.

How do I put the top down?


put the car in neutral, pull emergency brake on, and push the top down button. i believe they did away with the manual lock unlock for the roof latch so it should be automatic from there.

In the fuse box is a pull out terminal which you pull out and connect positive jump lead to, connect earth side to door latch or body then connect other end to donor car, this will power up car and enable you to open hood to access battery

1999 porsche boxster windows wont go up all the way


That problem appears to be in the top release. this is the thing at the top of the windshield that you release. Press the button inside of it to see if that may be the problem. it is the only thing that wouldn't let your windows go all the way up. The switch inside may have gone bad.

My Boxter battery is dead and I am not able open the trunk lid.


I have two Boxsters and have had to use this fuse box procedure on each. On the first car I followed the instructions in the manual and it worked perfectly. On the second car, I followed the identical procedure and nothing happened. After much fiddling, I realized that the clamp on to the door latch was not making a ground connection. Try touching the ground clamp directly to the head of one of the bolts on the door latch. This worked for me and the hood opened instantly. The quality of the ground connection seems to be the key. By the way, if you do not want to use a donor battery, a battery charger will provide sufficient power to release the hood latch. Good luck.

The top of my 1999 porsche boxster wont close. When i push the button it doesn't even make a noise like it is trying to close. what should i do?


The convertible top on my 1998 boxster would not work either, nor would the windows go down. If you have checked the fuse and it is fine, then it may be what I had experienced which is the switch located in the center console directly under the hand brake. There is a white plastic switch with a plunger on it that is engaged by the handbrake being raised. When the handbrake is engaged it activates the switch which then allows the convertible top to be activated. It's a $5.00 part, (I know, I couldn't believe it either) from the porsche dealer, and a very easy to do yourself job, it took me 10 minutes from start to finish. It would be worth spending the $5 and replacing it anyway, at least you could rule it out if it stll does not work you only spent $5 rather thank $140 an hour labor rate at dealer. Pop the side plastic panel under the hand brake on the drivers side and you will see the white plastic switch. Good luck.
