Smile Electrical problem

I have a 2000 and 3 Porsche Boxster base model recently purchased. With the key on in the motor running, the fan on the air conditioning system will not come on unless the key is slightly turned to the left but not off. The same works for the headlights. The headlight switch will be turned on but the lights will not come on unless the key it's just turn slightly to the left but not off. Any thoughts on the issue would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. Bob

Many odd electrical issues can be related to the electrical portion of the ignition switch. http://986forum.com/forums/general-discussions/46411-ignition-switch-replacement-holy-crap.html

I'll second the ignition switch and advise that calling it a 2003 or 03 boxster will be the more common naming convention

Ignition switch for sure. Get the 12$ Audi part as they are exactly the same.

I found working thru the AC vent with 1 arm and one up from underneath the easiest and fastest way. My screwdriver was a 1/4" drive ratchet with a straight blade bit. Small sized.

There are a few recent threads so scroll around or search.
