Question about 2000 Porsche Boxster

1 Answer

Both low beams will not come on

I noticed my left low beam light was out. I waited about a week to replace it, when I noticed that both low beams now appear to be out.

I got new bulbs and replaced them both, and triple checked that the lights are install properly.

However, they still don't come on. The high beams come on, but not the low beams.

(I don't know if this is a factor, but the ignition switch is acting up and I'm replacing it. I'm not sure if it's related.)

I have a base 2000 Boxster.

Thank you for your help!

    on my 2001 the Low beams do not turn on. you can force on by pulling light switch out 1 or 2 positions. this turns on low beams but interferes with the high beams. It appears that it may be a problem with the control unit for daytime running

Left headlights


Check your connections at the wiring harness going to headlights for corrosion, sounds like high resistance somewhere, also make sure your ground wires are secure. It wouldn't be the alternator or the battery would be dead and not start the engine. Also shouldn't be any condensation in your head light assembly's or will cause bulbs to blow prematurely.

My high beams and marker lights work, but the low beams do not


Take a test light and test for power to the low beams. A common issue is that one low beam burns out, and the operator does not notice, but they always notice when the 2nd one goes out... MAy be just a bulb issue, and testing will confirm.

Left brake light stays on constantly when headlights are on. When headlights are off, left brake light is dimmer than right brake light when brakes are applied. I did recently change the brake bulb. ...


There is a shortage some where at the brake bulb and low beam holder. Take off the bulbs and inspect carefully those losing wires attached to the ends can cause the problem. Good luck.

Low Beam Drivers Side doesn't work ... low voltage,


Power for the headlights on the Left side (High and low beam.) comes from the same fuse... The ORANGE wire and the ORANGE/BLACK are the same, they connect in the harness. If you only lack the 12v to make the light work connect them at the headlight assembly.

If your low beam also lacks ground the Left low beam ground is shared with the right low beam ground... Run a wire from left low beam DARK BLUE to right low beam DARK BLUE/WHITE.

If its not working now then your cursed, seek a witch doctor.

Left low beam is dim


The mechanic didn't hook up the ground wire. The system is using the other light as it's ground and when this happens it causes the other light to go out.

Check the ground wires
