Sometimes when I drive my car the ignition switch will not turn on. An acquaintence told me that when this occurs to roll the vehicle frontwards or backwards a litlle bit and the ignition switch will turn on. To my amazement it works. The individual indicated the gearing is very tight and that rolling it helps the car to realize that it is actually in neutral and not in gear. How do I correct this situation? Was this common in Boxster models in the earlier years?I live in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania. Do you know of a good Porsche mechanic that works in this area?
