Boxter 986 electrical issues

Hello to you all.

I recently purchased a Boxter 986 (97) and everything seems to be working fine until recently. Firstly the electric roof is intermittent - sometimes it will go down and up and hen after driving it wonít respond. Also - when I lock the car or take the key out of the ignition the clock on the gauge console flashes to be reset - this then requires me to reinsert the key and turn in order to set. If I donít do this then the battery drains if left.

My electric windows, radio, lights etc all work perfectly it is just these two issues. They clock one being the most puzzling. Any assistance very welcome.

Many thanks

Welcome.

Wrong forum for your inquiry. Read around a bit. You'll get it.
