go for a 911 in preferance to the boxter.
Rock your steering. The car may be in steering lock. Then the key should turn the ignition on.
I would advice starting and moving the car on a weekly basis. A 5 mile run would be more benififial to the car than for it to be standing for months on end. . A cars working parts need to be used. ie:- brakes and hand brake, generator, safety switches, convertable top needs to be used. Heating/cooling system. Oil, water, hydraulic and petrol pumps all need to be used. By not running the car on the road throughout the winter on a weekly basis is asking for trouble in many ways. The car becomes a 'couch potato' if left sitting for a winter period. Get yourself a new batterry and start again. Good luck.
my owners manual explains fully how to put the top up and down manually. I have a 911. Hope you have an owners manual with your car.
Find it remove it and reversae the precedure for replacing it.
sounds like the clutch is worn out or at least needs adjusting.
I have a 1999 carrera. On the end of the cruise control arm, press in the square button. A green light comes on the speedo dial. Then to set the speed. Push the arm away from you. To stop, pull the arm toward you.
make sure all windows are down. The rear engine lid closed and keys in ignition. make sure the hand or parking brake is fully on and car out of gear. All doors c,losed. It maybe as well you check all your fuses in a flip of lid near your left foot.
Make sure that the rear doors and engine hood are closed, hand brake full on, and all windows are fully down before the convertible top will operate correctly. You should not have to unhook the latch. That works automatically. Well it does on my 1999 carrera. As you push and hold the button to open the top, all windows should go down and the top should operate. For closing, all windows will automatically close, and top starts to operate. Operating time is approx 20 seconds. If all this fails, check all your fuses situated in a box by your left foot. I was trying to fix an inside light and got a flash which resulted in me blowing a fuse which controlled the top and side windows. I found it and replaced it and the top and side windows are now working fine again. It was a 15 amp fuse. I had spare fuses in the box which i used to fix the problem.
When the door is open, the inside light plus the light at the bottom of that door should come on. They do not. The same on the other door. The inside light does not work via the toggle switch either. The bulbs are all good and the fuse is also good. I proved this by removing the light cluster and bridging the contacts on the back of the switch. The 3 lights come on even though the door is then closed.
