Ignition Switch or Steer Lock

I just started have some trouble inserting my key into the ignition... at around 30,000 I had the ignition switch and Steering Lock assembly replaced.. If it's just the key acting a bit notchy on insertion, is it like just the igniton switch of both, i.e. switch and Lock assembly? Thanks. Bob Priddy

THEFT CONTROL MODULE

Gauge Cluster Repair/Replacement

Last week the On Board Computer Display (digital speedometer, etc.) went dim. It is not completely out but is unreadable except in darkness. All other cluster functions work normally. The local dealer quoted $4500 for a new replacement saying they cannot be repaired. I contacted several shops that do this work but they agreed with the dealer (mostly due to lack of parts availability). So my choices are:

oil overfill warning in 2013 Boxster

Has anyone experienced the oil overfill warning randomly displaying?  Have had the oil replaced to confirm accurate amount, and have had the sensor replaced.  Continue to have the overfill warning triggered, remain on for several days, and then randomly turn off and stay off for several days. Any ideas appreciated.

Auto Memory setting missing

I have a 2019 Boxster GTS (just delivered, ordered in APR.2018) with Entry & Drive, 18-way seats, and Memory Pkg and it seems like I have been having problems with memory settings. Not sure exactly what is happening but some times settings seem to revert or change. Reading the manual hardcopy manual and the online manual (both seem to be for 2018s) show that there is an "Auto Memory" setting under the Locking menu that writes the current settings, when ignition is turned off, to the key.

Drivers window stops working

The drivers window has stopped working, but re-activates for a short time (minutes or less) when you pull the fuse and reset it.  I installed a new micro switch on the outside handle with out fixing the problem.  When the fuse is pulled, both windows stop working, but when you put it back in the drivers window will work for a short time then stop, but the passenger side window works fine.  When the drivers window is working, it functions properly until is stops.  When it stops, it could be because you opened the door, opened the top, or just time?  Can't figure it out. Thanks.

Does anyone have any experience with a product called Sprint Booster?

Does anyone have any experience with a product called Sprint Booster? The company claims it can modify the throttle response time of the throttle dody.

Low beam / high beam lights stopped working, any suggestions?

My lights don't come on now, has anyone experienced this?  Have researched and came up with a possible bad light switch, is this easy enough to replace?  Any other suggestions?  Thanks in advance.
 

Changing front driving light to daytime running lights.

I would like to replace the stock front driving/fog lights with LED. I would like to turn the front driving lights to daytime running lights. Is there a way to modify the relays or wiring so the front driving lights are on any time the car is running or ignition on?
