Question about 1999 Porsche Boxster

Open Question

I have a 99 boxster. The remote does not work. Not that big an issue. However a few weeks ago I found that my key would not open the driver side door manually. The key just spins in the lock. Doesn't catch or connect with anything mechanically. Now I found that the driver side door is locked and i can not open it by any means. Key will not open it , outside door handle will not open it, inside door handle will not open it ,and the dash lock / unlock button will not release it . Thanks for any help you can give .

SOURCE: Battery dead; cannot open hood

If the cigarette lighter is an unswitched power point you could use it as a location to put a very small charge, just enough to get the hood release solenoid to activate. Years ago there was a device that was a male cigarette lighter power point at both ends and enough cable to go from car to car. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DO ANYTHING ELSE EXCEPT OPEN HOOD, DO NOT TURN KEY TO RUN OR ATTEMPT TO START. ANYTHING COULD RESULT. MINOR OR MAJOR. THERE IS A COMPUTER MEMORY SAVER THAT MATES A 9 VOLT TO A MALE CIGARETTE LIGHTER PLUG THIS MAY NOT BE ENOUGH TO RELEASE HOOD BUT MAYBE WITH A 12 VOLT FLASHLIGHT BATTERY (2 6 VOLT BATTERIES) WOULD WORK TO OPEN THE HOOD. (TURN EVERYTHING OFF EVEN DOME LIGHT.)

SOURCE: 2002 2500 Silverado tailgate handle will not release catches

I found that loosening the bolts on the inside of the tailgate made the job a little easier. Don't remove them. I could get to the trim piece from the inside to make sure I didn't break it. Pep Boys does sell the small package of clips for about $1.00. Make sure you don't break the clip and hope it works anyway like I did and ended up doing the job twice. I should have bought a second package of clips.

Hi Bgood,
I had the same problem. I locked and unlocked the car with the engine run several time utilizing the dashboard lock button. That fix my problem.

Try replacing the battery in the key. It may be too weak to engage lock.

Do you keep the key in your pocket quite a bit? Most BMW's need the key to be recharged in the ignition console for a few hours every week or so. The battery will die if you don't charge it for about an hour or two once a week.

Hi I have a porsche boxster 1997 and my passenger door wont open at all, when i go to unlock the driver's side unlocks and the car beeps twice. Please help


Might be the central locking system. Try using the key in the door (rather than the remote control) to deactivate the security system. Also make sure that the center console is completely closed (this is part of the central locking system).
