I just successfully repaired my 986 key fob using this video and your kit. Both the instruction and the kit made the process very simple and easy to accomplish. Thanks for making this available — I think this is a common issue with these keys and restores very useful functionality to the Boxster!

@Andy Haros
Your key is not defect at all, read your Porsche manual, after 5 days of not using the keys central locking keys it will shut off due to power saving of the battery. This means that you havent opened your car for 5 days or more. The shut off process is completely normal. As soon as you open the car the "old fashion way" and put the key in the ignition and turn the ignition it will work again you will see. Normally if you drive every day you will never have this but as said completely normal. As soon as it stand for more then the 5 days it goes into power save mode. As decribed in the car manual πŸ˜‰

Andy Haros says:

I just finished watching your video and thank you for the easy to follow tutorial. I need to ask you a question to see if replacing the switches would fix my problem or if it is something else. I replaced the battery on the fob of my 2002 boxter twice. The first time the fob worked well for about a week and then stopped. I changed the battery again, but did not fix the problem. I noticed on your video that when finished, your fob's light was blinking rapidly the whole time you held the button. Mine blinks only once no matter how long i hold it. It is the same for all 3 switches. Blinks on, and immediately off. That's it. What do you think? Switches, circuit board, battery again? Thank you

Chris Pacilio says:

Hi Bryan. Two things. If they replacement of the buttons didn't work, what's next? Also do you have access to the battery holder? My 2nd key has a battery holder that broke off…Thanks
