Do you drive it every day? The clock can kill a battery in 2 days if it is not run. How did you check the battery>? Volts, amps?,Electrolytes? The battery must maintain minimum 13.5 volts at all times. The electrolyte fluid can tell you a lot about the condition of a battery, One dead or weak cell, you might as well trash it. Just because it is a newer battery doesn't mean it is good, I've taken them off the shelf, dead. If you have an amp meter on the dash, it should always show charging, or 13+ volts, a light will only show when it is not charging or a very low battery is being charged, depends on the car. Get one of those floaty ball things at the auto store and check the water in the battery, and make sure it is up on water, bottled water works good, distilled type, no minerals. Hope this helps.

Porsche boxster 2004 headlights and side lights front and rear flicker first thing in a morning when auto choke on. Soon as engine dies down lights are fine for the rest of the day. Tried new light switch...


That's an interesting problem. When you say "flicker" are they flickering on and off, or just dimming a bit? My guess is that it's a problem with the voltage regulator on the alternator, or a problem with the alternator. Could also be a weak or bad battery, but I think you would have problems starting the car too. Check your fuse panel too to be sure they're all in there tight. If one is loose and rattling it could cause an issue like you describe.

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.

Are they on when the car is running? If so, check your OIL asap. Don't drive it. Could be a fault since the battery light is on too (usually means a bad alternator or battery), but better to be safe than sorry

Manually openning the trunk of a 2002 porsche boxster


It can only be done using the key fob. Othersise use button inside the car. If your battery is flat you need a donor battery wiring to a connection in the fuse box (positive) anf door lock(negative) but see your hand book.
