Hello! One set of contacts in the ignition switch are more than likely defective. Check the following: After key is off and removed do the power windows still operate? If so replace ignition switch.

1998 boxster top switch does not respond dash light indicates micro switch is functioning, latch micro switch is functioning but top is not response when the top up or down switch in engaged, top worked...


There are 3 microswitches on the Boxster, one in the hand brake that triggers the "Park" light on the dash, a second switch in the top latch, that drops the windows a few inches when open and allows the windows to roll all the way up when latched. There is a third switch under the clam shell that indicates the top is fully open or fully closed . There is also a speed sensor in the top controller in the fuse box that prevents the top from opening if the speedo shows greater than zero mph. If pulling the parking brake triggers the dash light and the top still won't operate, the latch switch is likely the culprit. I recently replaced mine on my '99.

Air bag warning lights appears on the dash board every time I turn on the ignition on my 1998 Porsche Boxster


You need to have the airbag serviced as there is an error somewhere. it also means that the airbag will not deploy in an accident, so you should get this looked at by someone with experience troubleshooting airbag problems asap.

You probably have a loose wire to the gear console switch, or a bad board somewhere. Check to see that you have voltage going to the lights in the console.

I have a 2002 porsche boxster and the dash light will not turn until I lock the door manually.


This is a problem with Porsche cars. What you need is a trickle charger or use the car on a more regular basis to keep the battery charged. If you have a garage with power get yourself a trickle charger and leave the battery on charge when not using the car. If this is not posible charge the battery up fully start the car and see if your dash lights go out. If they don't go off it might be your alternator is not working, get it checked out, or do it yourself if you can.

Dash lights will not shut off until I lock the door on my porsche boxster


That's normal, but they should turn off after a couple minutes. Are they staying on longer than that?
