Change the fuse anyway. Often they still look good but they are shot. Also, Get a can of WD-40 and lubricate the hinge joints at least twice a year. This will cause ease of operation putting less draw on the motor. J.

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.

Sunroof control module for 91 subaru sambar van.when i press the open and close position,nothing happens,when i connect power straight to the sunroof motor,it works


Theres no power getting to the switch. Did check the fuses? This could be the source of your problem, if the fuses are ok then the contacts in the switch may be worn, you may have to replace the switch.

The convertible top won't go up or down


Check that rear boot lid is closed. Open and close it again to be sure. Check if handbrake warning light functions, because if this light does not function, then the roof will not work. If the light is not working, work handbrake lever up and down rapidly and you might get the switch to work again for a bit and then check the roof switch again. If all these are fine, then further diagnosis is required on switching, relay etc..

Convertible top won't close on my 2000 boxster


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.

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.

Boxster 2001 brake lights not working


That leaves the microswitch or the wiring.Verify microswitch is working first and the check wiring continuity. The microswitch closes as you press the pedal and transfer power to brake lights.
If the microswitch is O.k then it will be the wiring that is at fault.

hope it helps.

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.
