Unlocking with key

Unlocking with key

Postby frag68 » Wed Nov 01, 2017 12:21 am

I've just bought a Boxster S and the car doesn't lock or unlock with the fob. I locked it with the key in the door but on unlocking the alarm went off and only went off when I turned on the ignition.

Is there a way to reset the key?

The key fobs both light up when pressed suggesting the battery in the fob is ok.

Looking to the TT collective for advice.

Sounds like the key may need recoding.
Sadly it's the car that is coded to the key so bend over.
A good indie might do it...if not it's OPC.
Does the key start the car?

Once in the car I put the key in the ignition, turn it on and the alarm stops. Car starts no problem

I believe there is a system reset which can be done after a period of inactivity. Just need to find out what that is.
