Question about Porsche Boxster
If the fuses in the interior fuse box are all good and the Fuses and Relay under the hood in the Power Distribution center are good that only leaves a shorted wire, faulty switch or faulty motor as possible problems. You can test the control switch by disconnecting the wires from the back of the switch and testing for continuity between the pins. When the switch is not activated there should be no continuity between any of the pins. When you activate the switch you should get continuity between the pins, if you don't replace the switch. If the control switch is good test the motor by applying power directly to it using a direct wire from the battery. If the motor doesn't cycle the motor is faulty. If the motor does work and the switch test good then that only leaves the relay or the fuses, it has to be one of them and the only possible problems can be narrowed down to what you have already tested and what I have listed above.

Hi! Just a thought on the issue. I strongly suggest that you open the hood and remove the positve battery connector of the car and let it sit for atleast 10mins. to reset the car's system. After 10mins. please try to open the top. Sometimes the computer needs to relearn to fix itself. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!
