Hello There

I think the best is to take the door panel off and see.
It is very posible that your micro switch is bad,or if you can see anything inside the door brokenon the door handle itself.
The switch is 996 613 126 00 Porsche part number

My 99 boxster is making noise while turned off it stops when i pull the power window fuse what can i do

Check under the LH seat that the car ECU isn't sitting in water or the carpet is wet. If it is dry it out and make a hole in the floor to let the water out. Then try and cure the leak. Other than that it could be a sticking relay.

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.

Window stuck on my 1997 boxster

you'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. Then pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything.It could be that the switch or relay for the window is bad

2001 Boxster Alarm Beeps Twice when locking it and sometimes during driving as well. . . .

If the car beeps twice when you unlock the doors, it means there is a fault in the car alarm system. Usually when this happens the red LED lights on the "door lock" button on the top r h side of the dash. Also on mine, when you try to open the passenger door the window does not drop the small amount as usual, but that may be part of my alarm problem.
