Question about 2000 Porsche 911 Carrera
I bought the car with no paperwork, so i don't have the code for the radio. now i need that code after changing the battery. i heard the may be listed on a sticker under the hood? i looked there, but there too many codes too chose from? does anyone know an easy way to recover the code, short of calling the dealer and paying for it? thanks
Hi Bob, If the set is anything similar to those fitted to BMW and Benz, which I believe is most possible, the code is on a label stuck to the bottom of the set. You'll need to remove the set to read it and that will mean using a flexible flat blade to unlock the retaining lugs which hold the set into the casing. Once you have, the set can be gently pulled forward and thereby reveal the code. Regards John

The cheapest way to get around this and get enough voltage into the system to open the hood is to purchase a cigarette lighter extension (about 3 feet) and cut off the female plug on the end. Strip the 2 wires back a few inches and attach one to the positive and the other to the negative on a set of jumper cables. Attach the other end of the negative jumper to a battery. With the keyless entry in hand, touch the positive cable to the positive terminal on the battery and press the unlock button until you hear the car doors click. Once it clicks, you should be able to use the hood latch to gain access to the battery.

Latch for hood and trunk seems frozen.
Took fuse panel off, no illustration or terminal to put charger on.
could not find latch in wheel well.
Is There another solution?

On the 996 and 997 there is a panel on the drivers side footwell that has a fuse panel and exposes a red positive terminal that pulls out slightly. You can connect the positive lead from a battery or charger to this terminal and the negative lead to a convenient ground spot like the door catch.
I removed the battery for the winter from my 996 and went through this process in the Spring when I realized my mistake.
