Question about 2001 Porsche Boxster

1 Answer

I have a 2001 Boxter and the speedometer , tach and dash lights, clock, are clicking off about every 8 seconds and come right back on (even when the car is off ).You hear a slight sound from behind dash and instruments fail. Head lights are fine and it is not effecting the car in any other way we can see.

My 2001 dodge startus transmission wont shift, speedometer works, engine light is on. Need help?


Transmission is in limp mode. This enables you to drive the car to service. Anytime there is a transmission code in the computer even if nothing is wrong it will stay in limp mode until the code is erased. Most retail auto parts stores will run an obd2 diagnostic scan to determine the problem and erase existing codes, no charge (Auto Zone, Advance and others)

Intermittent Digital Dash


check the dash is sitting right, push on the dash. if this fixes it then you have a bad connection to the board pins on the back. if not there is a board in the dash that has failed usually down to a capacitor going, this age being a 91 model it dont cost a;lot for the capacitor/s to be changed but you will need some sodering skills to replace it/them.

Turn signals on 2001 Chrysler Town & Country cause dash lights to come on and speedometer & odometer quit working


I would say its probably a short or a ground problem at the turn switch or a wire in that area. you need a test light and probably a multi meater and some nohow a ground or wireing problem can even drive a master teck crasy.

Need 2000 dodge grand caravan manuel. The dash instrument panel stopped working after a battery replacement. The light work. The tach and speedometer are pinned all the way to the right. ?


Digital Odometer??
Try this procedure and let me know if this worked for you. I have done this several dozen times and it helped reset the Instrument Cluster.
1. With the Key IN the Ignition and in the OFF (not On or Start)Position
2. Push in and hold-in the Trip Odometer Reset button.
3. When "sof 4.0" appears: release the Button and WAIT.
4. There maybe some "E" Codes that may appear.
5. Continue to let the System run its course. There should be a great light show on the dash along with the Tach and Speedometer needles dancing all over the place.
6. In about 30-seconds it will complete it's reset cycle.

Again let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions REPLY in the Comments Section of this Post.
