Question about 2000 Porsche Boxster

2 Answers

The boxster has been sat for a while and the battery was flat. after starting it and taking round about 20 miles I thought it would have enough charge. however the alarm went off and now it keeps going off and won't start at all I know it goes into some kind of sleep mode and if you leave it locked you have to open it with the key and start it up within a certain amount of time to get the security system to reset but if you don't manage to do that what happens and what's the next level of resetting ? thanks

Really should diconnect he battery and charge it up for a day or so. Then give it a spin. Shd be OK. The low batery level is playing havoc with the security system sending false signals triggering various states of lay up mode.

The 12 volt battery(LUCAS 065/3) on my FORD FIESTA 1100cc is 4 years old, in that time i have only driven 1,600 miles as my journeys are usually very local. I make sure i use the car twice a week to keep...


Running so few miles has accelerated the aging of the battery - the battery never had a chance to fully recharge in such small trips -  so now you have to replace it a year sooner than usual.
Just replace it.

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.

Replaced battery on 98 Porsche Boxster and now odometer is wrong


I had the same problem and was about to take the car to the dealership tomorrow, but I decided to try disconnecting the battery and see if it would reset itself. When I reconnected the battery the odometer mileage went back to where it was before I changed the battery. It worked!

Maybe it will work for you. Good luck!

Try cleaning the fuel pump filter. Under the seat behind the driver lift the carpet and you will find a round cover with six screws remove the cover. The fuel pump is directly below unscrew the retaining round plate and remove the pump. At the base of the pump is a small filter if it is covered in black muck that's your problem. clean and replace. job takes about 10 mins good luck. please let me know how you got on!

Porsche 2005 2.7 boxster flat battery?


Reach over the drivers side front tire in wheel well.  Reach around trim in upper wheel well to find a cable, running front to back, pull toward you and it should release the front hood.  Previous owner showed me this emergency release in case battery goes dead and I have recently had to use it myself on my 1998 Boxster.
