Get your error codes and report back here. Someone has surely experienced the same issue and can tell you if it a simple DIY or indy repair tech time.


I am looking into code readers now, can you recommend a certain brand or store to buy one from that will help with a Boxster? I don't have access to a lap top, so I am looking for a standalone product that will read and reset codes.
