1999 Porsche Boxster Check Engine Light

My 1999 Porsche Boxster's engine light went on today @ 25k miles. Ironically the oil light says that I am now one quart low ( accurate per the dipstick). Are these issues related or is the check engine light emissions related? Is there a way get a code reading without going to the dealer?

Take the car to an autoparts store and have them scan the computer. Most parts stores will do the scan for free. I wouldn't think that the two issues are related. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Are they on when the car is running? If so, check your OIL asap. Don't drive it. Could be a fault since the battery light is on too (usually means a bad alternator or battery), but better to be safe than sorry

Mine did that off and on for a month with no other problems then it started making a loud suction noise and the check engine light came on. I took it to the dealer and they said the "oil separator" needed to be replaced.
After the repair I never heard the squealing again.

As long as the CHECK ENGINE light is on steady, you can very gently drive it. If it starts to flash...turn the engine off immediately.

Have the code checked by the Dealer.

02 Boxster headlights wont turn on


the light fault sound like the switch itself, the clicking heard will be the relay once a good connection is made at the switch. If the engine management light has come on it will have an emmisions related fault and will need further attention, this is not related to the service schedule
