I would say that the actuator on the passenger door lock is bad, and tripping the sensor to the switch. I don't think the boot light has anything to do with the door locks. That, I think is another issue.

If the key had gone faulty, the key code must be re programmed on the vehicle computer. This can be done only using a PIWIS tool, available at the dealer or at a qualified Porche garage.
Try also the following reset:
turn ignition on,
turn off.
remove the transponder from the column
push any button on the fob within 6 seconds.
This procedure will reset the key synchronizing again with the vehicle computer.

if you are lucky it is written on the radio, in the service handbook or on the paper sticker on the underneath of the hood. It may also have been input into the ECUs main, an ECU reader may give you this.Falling that there are companies online who claim to decode it for you from the radio s no. I have had varying success, sometimes they work sometimes not. The Porsche dealer may be able to tell you if it is the O/E radio but he may charge for the service.

If you can access a battery charger that plugs into the cigar lighter that would give you enough power to operate electric locks. Something similar to this.
