986 engine squeek, no reverse, brakes squeek

I have a 1999 Boxster with Automatic/Triptronic transmission. I have a few issues that just came up.The engine is making a belt like squeek sound that is constant and elevates with the RPM's. I had the Porsche shop look at it when I got new tires. And they said the belt and all pullys are fine. It was at the dealer getting the immobilizers replaced, and they were programmed there. When I bought it, the transmission was just rebuilt. I was driving on the Interstate for about an hour with the cruise control on. Then my cruise shut off and I could feel the car giving up and slowing down. After 5 minutes of that, then everything was better, but no cruise and the dash lights showing the transmission was blinking from the D to the 4 on the manual side. I stopped for something to drink, and when I got back to the car someone was parked in front of me. I put it in reverse and nothing. The car has set for a few days, and still no reverse. And the dash indicator is the same. My brakes have been sticking for a while. I am going to have the booster and master cylinder looked at and replaced if needed. But when I drive I have one foot below the brake peddle an one above, to allow me to come to a slow stop.
Any ideas on this mess?

Blinking d-4 means a tip issue .
Can you select manual gears using the buttons ?
I'm going off memory , and a little drunk , but there is an electrical contact from the gearbox linkage that can sometimes be cleaned , and fluid level checked .
I'll post again tommorow when things are clearer )

Ian, is a tip issue meaning a tiptronic issue? I am taking it to a transmission shop on Monday. The shop specializes in exatics, and has all the scanners to figure this out. The transmission was rebuilt before I bought it. It is not warrantied. Hopefully this doesn't cost much.

Ian, I saw your message and I took the car to a transmission shop. This is more then I can work on. The price is going to be up there. They said maybe $2500 to rebuild what is there, and maybe $2000 more for a used transmission. They said they would just sell it with a bad tranny. I enjoy doing the little things, but am not mechanically inclined.

If you decide to sell...

Marty,
I've noticed that you have several postings going that cover a multitude of issues. Transmission, brakes, engine squeak, etc. Sorry you are having so many problems. I know you just got your Boxster, but from the sounds of it you may want to cut your losses and move to another vehicle. If that is the decision you make I may be able to help. Just send me a PM, I buy Boxsters needing work frequently and am located in your neighboring state so logistics will be simple.

Thanks, Joe

I had the transmission fixed at $3500 and a new brake booster installed. Is that a good price.
