Correct Jeff, Porsche branded original battery and so 5 years old which I have found is as long as they last, I had been wondering how old it was and even with club discount it's still very expensive at £198.
 
But when I have a warranty it would be false economy to fit a better Bosch.

Our 2004 porche cayenne battery was dead, I left the lights on over night.  We trickle charged the battery.  It shows full, but when you put key in, dash lights up but engine will not turn over.  No messages on dash,  any ideas?
 
 

I have exactly the same problem with my 2007 911 Turbo, the battery went dead by leaving the headlights on in the garage overnight, I jump started the car with jumper cables, it ran and drove fine for 30 minutes, then I connected the battery charger for 24 hours to top off the battery charge, It shows full, now I try to start the car and all the dash lights light (all failure lights light up) up but engine wont start. Any idea what happened? Do I need a computer reset or something? Please help!

Dear Guest, if it is turning over then the battery should be ok and giving full voltage, I take it that you made sure it was charged before refitting.
 
It's generally considered best to only have the battery disconnected for the minimum of time, by coils I expect that you mean Coil Packs on each spark plug, are you certain that they are connected correctly? Terminals clean etc, firing order will be decided by the ECU off the crank sensors which I think will be on the bell housing taking the signal off the flywheel they may need cleaning or the problem may even be with them, if you are a member then please update your profile so that you are identified on the forum

Am I correct in assuming the battery re-connect set up procedure for the Cayman will be the same for the Gen2 Boxster?

I think that you can safely assume that's the case David.

Fault codes should not need resetting. Driving the car should extinquish those warning lights. If persistant then probably genuine ABS sensor fault.

I think that red led is the alarm activated warning? Remove radio fuse, wait a few seconds and replace. Others have solved same problem that way on other forums.

I want to replace my steering wheel on my 2006 987 but the instructions say to disconnect my battery first. Can I do it without disconnect the battery... Seems like less hassle.
Thank, Marty

Not advisable Marty. There's a danger of setting off the airbag.

I have a 1998 Porsche Boxster convertible standard transmission. I am currently experiencing some issues my battery died and I went and got a new one but prior to that I tried jumping it with my trickle / 20 amp / 50 amp boost charger and the starter was turning over but just clicking and so I just stopped and went and bought a new battery when I got back and install the battery I turn the key and it makes no sound does anybody know what's going on please help thanks my name is Ben. While I'm on here I also have one more issue which I believe is a motor mount or transmission mount possibly when I shift starting out from first to second if I don't ride the clutch a little bit there's a there's a movement behind me like a bang and it's only through first and second shifting so if I shift fast it bangs and sometimes I think it bangs if I hit a bump but not a hundred percent on that. Do you think that could be an engine mount thanks for anyone who gives me some input it will be much appreciated have a great day

Hi Ben,
 
If a new battery hasn't solved your problem then I suggest that you check the cabling and connections to the starter motor. After all, it's an 18-year old car and it's possible that there's some corrosion there resulting in a poor contact.
 
On your second point, again, for a car of that age (and high mileage?) it's quite probable that the engine and gearbox mounts are showing signs of wear and in the first instance I'd check that none of them have failed before you start looking elsewhere.
 
Hope you get it sorted.
 
Jeff

Thanks for any assistance.  Boxsterburg

Hi Richard.

I know this is the wrong forum. But are the effects of battery disconnection the same for a 996?

Mike

Most systems are different on the 996. For example, the PSM isn't affected by a battery disconnection, but it usually gives a heart stopper message on a 9x7. Window resetting and DME adaption are different. I'll try to post something on the 996 forum in a day or two.

Hello Richard. Just to say how thankful I am still when you suggested I get my 996 out of transport mode on the obcomputer about 3 years ago 20013 or s0. You solved it great for me and I will be for ever grateful to you for that info. . I saw you posting as I was looking how to solve a p1124 aNS P1126 CODE WHICH POPPPED UP with the CEL.  I have new o2 sensors coming and pressure sensor for my 996. Can't find any air or vacuum leaks in the ervap system after smoke machining it. Throwing parts like crazy at it and still coming up. Hope you are doing just fine and thanks again.
