Hello and welcome to Just answer.com, Super mechanic here. About your vehicle.
It sounds like the battery is bad, may have an internal short. You will want to make sure that you have the hold down bolt out of it. Here is what the data base has for battery R&R
Thank you very much. I will definitely give this a try. Your diagram is extremely helful, I would have never figured that out.
One last question, do I need to go to a Porsche dealership to get a new battery or is there a comparable type I can get at my local auto store?
Your welcome. They are available after market, just about anywhere. I do see one at Autozone, but I don't see a price.
Only for the cheaper one.
You may want to try NAPA or Advance, if there are any locally
Awesome advice! Worked like a charm. The car turned right over and it only took an hour of my time and under $100 for the battery.
I was watching all of the testimonials scroll by while waiting for an answer with skepticism, Now I'm writing one myself. I simply could not have done this without your diagrams and recommended model numbers.
Well worth the value. You have easily saved me hours and hundreds of dollars.
Thank you very much!
