Joel, Thanks for the prompt answer. I did solve the problem. Since I use a battery tender the front lid was ajar and thus leaving the ignition key light on. I outsmarted the system by depressing the latch with my finger so the car thinks trunk is closed. I place a rag or tape over the latch to remind me to hit the trunk release inside the car to bring the latch back to open position. This way I don't slam the trunk on the closed position latch. I don't like to bring the charger wires through the rubber around the trunk area and force the trunk closed. By the way, I could not find anything in the manual about the little ignition light. thanks for all you do.Congrats on your new acquisition. Start by reading the "Interior Lights" section of your owner's manual. With my copy it is on page 20. If you don't have one, you can order one from any Porsche dealer, or see Panorama magazine ads for additional options. The owner's manual says that the interior lights and your ignition key light should go off about 20 seconds after the doors are closed. So you may have a door being left open, or a bad door or hood contact switch, or something wrong with the delay circuit. You will probably need to take the car to a qualified Porsche technician to get this resolved. Let us know what you find. Joel Reiser [UPC]2/14/2011 9:11:47 AM
