POSSIBLY SWITCH THAT RECOGNIZED PARK BRAKE ON OR POSSIBLY BAD MOTOR. YOU CAN GET A TEST LIGHT AND PROBE THE CONNECTOR FOR POWER AND HAVE SOMEONE ACTIVATE MOTOR TO SEE IF ITS A PWR PROB OR MOTOR THATS BAD. MAYBE PLAY AROUND WITH PARK BRAKE,MAYBE SWITCH JAMMED OF STUCK AND NEEDS JARRING TO ACTUATE.

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.

To close the top, the parking brake must be engaged and the ignition in the ON position. Assuming that these conditions are met, you can close the top manually if needed. The procedure involves (1) removing key, (2) removing convertible top link covers, (3) gently prying conv top lid links on both side, (4) lifting the conv top lid to open position, (5) gently prying the red links off, and (6) finally manually lifting the top to the closed position.

Before taking such measures, if you do not hear the motors, check the B6 and D3 relays. You might also want to check the microswitch on the top/center windshield frame.

The Covertable top button does nothing, The relay has been replaced and the fuses are good unless there are some I do not know about.


Do you hear the motor running? If yes, then it could be the fluid level in hydraulic unit.

To check the hydraulic unit:
- Remove luggage compartment trim.
- Open convertible top once and close again to bleed the system.
- Convertible top must be closed.

If you have another way of bleeding the hydraulic unit, then do it and make sure to bleed the hydraulic unit.

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.
