Customer Question

my 2 key fobs for my 2002 boxster are 1 button. They re dead - won't open the car.
I want to replace thm but am confused because none of those available on line look exactly like mine. Most have 2 or 3 buttons. Can a 2 or 3 button fob be programmed to work with a boxster with original fobs of only 1 button?

Did that work? If not and you still want the ne button fob, I would contact the Porsche dealer and ask them.
