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

SOURCE: 1999 porsche 911 how to open hood with dead battery

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.

SOURCE: 1999 911 Porsche hood latch wont pull up to open fron hood

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.

Need to find a diagram and instructions to replace or service the convertible motor for my 2001 996 cab

Your best bet will be to go to eBay and type in your model & year, or just porsche & year to see exactly what's available there. I saw many manuals on DVD listed for that make.

I purchased Nissan, MINI, Mercedes, Mitsubishi, Toyota and a few other DVD's that contain the complete shop manual.

These manufacturers don't make the materials readily available as a rule, so this may shorten your hunt and be more affordable than buying the paper service manual.

Here's a link to paper manuals.

Good luck!

contact the service department at your local Porsche dealership, they may be able to look up the code for your radio using your vin#.

if they can't look it up by your vin#, they should be able to look up the lock code using the serial# of the radio. To get the serial# you need to pull out the radio.
