Question about Porsche Boxster

3 Answers

Bought a 2001 Boxster today that had a dead battery a few weeks back. When I turned on the radio it displayed "CODE". I punched a few buttons then it said "WAIT" and that's where it is now - hours later. NO WAY to get the code - previous owner didn't have it. Any ideas? Thanks!

    the battery went dead. Now the radio shows the stations, but there is no volume. Also, the one touch window feature doesn't work anymore. Any suggestions?

As you've no doubt figured out, this is an attempt to discourage thieves from ripping radios out of cars. Any time the radio loses power, it locks down until you supply the code. It's probably not very effective as a deterrent, because you can get the code at a dealer or at various websites. If you haven't already done this, try a web search for Porsche radio security code.
