door lock

I was sitting in my car and I was wondering how does one lock the doors from the inside?

Use the remote key fob. Is there a central locking button on the dash? The 987 have a central locking button.

I didn't think about the remote key. Good idea. I'm not aware of any central locking system. Maybe someone else can chime in that owns a 00 base model.
Luck you with a 987...

Can you get the dealer to re-program the car so the doors lock when either you:

1) Insert the key in the ignition and start the car

or

2) Drive off and the car reaches 2-3 MPH


I had my car programmed to do #2. I am not too familiar with your MY to know if this is possible. Sorry.

I have a 2000 Boxster with zero options and it has a central locking rocker switch on the dash, top switch on the right side of the climate control.

Do you think your dealer could program my puppy to do that?

I don't know Grizzly. I don't know enough about the 986. This lock/programming info was in my Owners Manuel. Is it mentioned in yours?

I'm embarrassed to say that I had to go look to see if I had central locking or not. I do. It's the top right rocker switch.
