2008 Porsche Boxster S ProblemsWater Leaks from Cabriolet Tops Due to Clogged Drains
The drains in the Cabriolet top can clog, causing water to leak onto the carpets. Water can also accumulate in the doors, causing various electrical problems.
If the vehicle cannot return to run position after start or if the interior fan is not getting power, it may be the electrical portion of the ignition switch has become erratic or has failed. The entire switch assembly should be replaced.
Electrical issues—windows lowering after locking or leaving the vehicle—can be caused by a defect in the window motors.
