Check to see if your radio has a fuse that is bad if so change it but also check all your fuses too.

    you could also have fried the curcuit inside the radio and it could of been a short somewhere with the wires to the ground of car. If so you can use a multimeter to back track where it might be at .

I have a Porsche 911 99 model. Last month, I tried to start it to warm the engine during the cold spell and all it did is crank up but would not start. At the time, lights and windows were functioning. I...


It is most certainly your battery. Those big batteries need a trickle charge on them if you're not driving them a lot. On the 996 Carrera it seems to use a lot of battery power to turn over the engine so first thing I'd suggest is trickle charging it (up front directly in front of windscreen) then try, if that doesn't work, change the battery. If it's completely dead and you can't get the front hood open, there are a positive and negative terminal for getting a current through in the engine bay bottom left(i think). Hope this helps.

1999 porsche 996 replaced key fob battery disconnected battery now trunk releses are locked and cant access battery.How do you open frt trunk manually


Assuming the car battery is ok (if not, buy a male to male cigarette lighter at the auto store and connect to another car until charged enough to unlock the doors...but don't try to crank the ignition!). The trunks won't open if the battery went dead with the alarm set because arming the alarm physically locks the releases.

Sounds like the key code is switched off because you replaced the key fob battery. Try unlocking the car manual with the key in the door lock. Then switch the ignition on to reactive the keyless entry. If this does not work, you might also try pressing the fob unlock button with the key in the door lock until the dash led flashes.

The car wont start. it blinks a lot of lights makes clicking


I had these problems on my 2005 911 when the battery died. Apparently when it goes IT GOES. I had no problem with the battery until this time and then suddenly it was dead.

I've heard since that this is common on Porsche 996 when the battery is dead and then is should also be the case with the 986 Boxter.

I removed the old battery and left the car without a battery for at least 30 minutes (while doing some other maintainance). Put a new battery in and no problems after that. On most cars if you disconnect the battery for like 15 minutes the maintainance computer resets its self and all warninglights should dissapear unless there is a real fault, then the appropriate light should come back on!

Good luck.
Slick.

1999 911 Porsche hood latch wont pull up to open fron hood


On the 996 and 997 there is a panel on the drivers side footwell that has a fuse panel and exposes a red positive terminal that pulls out slightly. You can connect the positive lead from a battery or charger to this terminal and the negative lead to a convenient ground spot like the door catch.

I removed the battery for the winter from my 996 and went through this process in the Spring when I realized my mistake.
