Hi .


Sadly on the boxer or any other Porsche you will have to visit the dealer or a good

locksmith for automotive locks and remotes repairs .

The key fob will have to be reprogrammed as the battery went flat .

Get in touch with these people i'm sure they will be able to help you and a lot cheaper than going to the dealer .


Please rate my help a good to excellent if you are satisfied .

After accepting there is no extra charge for further assistance.

If I don't reply soon I will as quickly as I can when i get back on line.
