dead battery. followed manual directions for using jumper cables to power up the small interior switch to open front hood. Problem: when hook cables to fuse box connection and striker plate the alarm goes off. Followed manual for turning off alarm, by manually locking and then unlocking the driver door, but it is failing to turn off alarm. So alarm is sounding off and the electrical release switch is not responding since car is technically still "locked". Any ideas? thanks. John

My airbag light came on after jump dead battery, how to reset it?
My Porsche Boxster had problems when accelerating. I brought it to an independant mechanic. He said that it was the ECU. I sent the ECU for repair. He still said it did not work so I sent it a second time. When he still couldn"t fix the car (mainly because he was too busy with other cars) I sent the car to the Porsche Dealer.

He told them that it was the ECU so they started with that and told me that they had a communication problem. It was throwing a lot of codes. So the ECU had to be replaced.

After the replacement the car still did not run. Upon further testing they found out that the fuel pump needed to be replaced.

They still say that there were 2 problems the ECU and the fuel pump.

I think that it was the bad fuel pump that was causing a bunch of codes to set off.

I am wondering if a few thousand dollars was spent replacing an ECU was really necessary.

Any opinions would be appreciated.

I have an 03 Cayenne S that has a light out. Come to find out the screw that pops the headlight assembly out is broken off and not able to use the tool privided by Porsche to remove it. Has this happened to anyone? If so how was it removed and what is the cost associated with it?
I have tried to remove the housing but I cannot seem to be able to get to it. How in the world do you remove the thermostat housing?
It has 97k miles and I just changed the spark plugs but it is still shaking a bit at idle. Rpms don't fluctuate. It also shakes a little at speeds over 80 mph but that could be the wheel balance?
However, when I rev the engine while in park I don't hear the thumping noise, could this be a broken belt or transmission problem.
