Boxster S 2001 flashing lights and stalling


New member
Really sorry… new here and need some help with my first Porsche….
just collected it today.. can someone explain these two little amber lights ? They are sometimes on, and sometimes they flash… what are they?

and the car drove flawlessly home (40miles) I went to drive from work to home and it stalled every time I stopped… no warnings, no chugging… no nothing… just stopped… will be ringing the dealer tomorrow
Hello and sorry to hear about your problems. I’ve had a 987S and currently a 718S but never experienced the cutting out and don’t know which amber lights you are referring to.
As you’ve just bought it you should have no problem getting it sorted by the supplier.
Hope you enjoy it when it’s driving ok- they are great cars!!
A progress report would be good.????????

Tried to add a photo but it hasn’t loaded which is annoying….
there’s 2 little amber lights below the CD slot for navigation… people have suggested it’s seeking a disc ? Hence the flashing…
cutting out people have also suggested it’s learning my driving style ? as it’s hasn’t had a Battery connect for sometime due to work being done on it … not too sure… have spoke with the dealer and they are taking it back for investigation.
