Question about 2002 Porsche Boxster

2 Answers

My 2002 Boxster S suddenly quit running while I was driving it this week. No advance warning of anything out of the ordinary, it just quit. I pulled over to the side of the road, and tried to start it, The engine turns over, but the car will not start. I can hear the fuel pump pressuring up. Can you give me some ideas as to what areas to check? The nearest Porsche dealer is 130 miles from me, and I don't want to have to haul it all that way, for something that may be fairly simple to rectify. Thanks

    The previous expert told me to check for the rotor moving, after removing the distributor cap. There is NO distributor on a Boxster engine!!! The engine quit running without any advance warning, and will turn over, but will not start??

1- It can be no spark. Verify if you have spark. If there is no spark then the ignition module is dead. 2- It can be a dead injection module. This one is to control turning on the fuel injectors so fuel can go into chamber for combustion. Verify if there is signal to the electrical connectors at your Fuel injectors.

Well, I can only think of one thing that will do this unfortunately on a Porsche it's gonna cost to fix. Timing chain or Belt broke. To verify, pull the distributer cap and have someone turn the engine over while watching the rotor. If the rotor doesn't turn then for sure the timing belt/chain has broken. If it does turn then the problem is possibly the crank position sensor.

I have a 2002 porsche boxster and the dash light will not turn until I lock the door manually.


This is a problem with Porsche cars. What you need is a trickle charger or use the car on a more regular basis to keep the battery charged. If you have a garage with power get yourself a trickle charger and leave the battery on charge when not using the car. If this is not posible charge the battery up fully start the car and see if your dash lights go out. If they don't go off it might be your alternator is not working, get it checked out, or do it yourself if you can.

Battery on a porsche boxster is dead will not start up


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.

How long since a tune-up? Any applicable trouble codes? Two things off the top of my head, problem with ignition switch or intermittent rpm signal. I have no way to be sure?
When it stalls, does it quickly restart, if not, do some testing, see what your losing, fuel--spark--whatever.
