Just to close this out - the problem was the top relay. It isn't jus a relay, it has electronics in it. I got a "new to me" one (Thanks Woody!!!) and now my top works correctly.

Thanks guys - you've convinced me to go glass. I especially hate the Boxster chop and as long as I can get to the engine the way you all have I'll be fine.

Very helpful, thanks. My car has 3 bows (I think?) and I thought it had a headliner but maybe not.

I was planning on getting a 98 aftermarket top with a glass window.

Delay on opening / closing top?

Over the past year or so my 98 Boxster has developed an interesting quirk. If I turn the ignition on (engine running or not) to put the top up or down, I have to hold the switch for 30 seconds to 2...

I'm suddenly having the same problem. I've checked the fuse, and the PARK light works when I apply the handbrake. If the windows are up, when I open the latch the windows go down a little.

I have a 98 Boxster. When I removed my steering wheel to install a 4-stalk (for Cruise control and OBC) the airbag clock spring went "sproing" and unwound.

Nevermind, it isn't broken. I read on Renntech that it isn't a spring at all, just a long data cable. I think that is right. I wound it to a spot where it seems happy and all is well.

Did I break my steering wheel clock spring?

I pulled off the steering wheel for a 4 stalk upgrade and I guess I should have taped the clock spring. It went "spring" and unwound itself (I think).

I'm ready to put everything back together...
