    I have the same problem with a Mitsubishi Magna.

    Same problem, went off for a couple of weeks came back,tried to start Boxster, battery flat can't open front lid to charge battery, all I can think of is to get a bump start and get some power going through the system,

    however there must be an easier way to open the front lid.

    Any ideas!!!!!!!!!!!

If the emergency power fuse does not work there is a back up cable behind the n/s/f wheel arch linner that you can pull. usually located just under the headlight.

Hi
If you open fusebox in footwell there is a RED section you pull out by fuse removal tool-this can be used as a permenant feed for a battery jump pack-red lead on the Red in fusebox and black on door check strap this will give you power to open front boot to get to battery.

Unable to access battery to recharge it because central locking system inoperable due to flat battery


hello there
you could try to get two male connector charging cable.They sell it at the dealer or on ebay.
And charge the Porsche trough your cigarette lighter socket.For that you could use battery jumper as well.
Then you can open the trunk to get to the battery.

1998 porsche boxster, battery is dead on car, and


This is a common problem. Your alarm was on when the battery went dead. When the alarm activated, the hood/bonnet opening lever locks to prevent thieves from opening the hood in case the top is down. Some boxsters have a jumper post the pulls out near the fuse box. However, I do not think the 1997-1999s have this post.

Buy a male-to-male cigarette lighter adapter at the auto store. Connect between your car's cigarette lighter socket and the other car's cigarette lighter socket. Do not try to start the ignition or the any other electronics. You should not even need the key in the ignition. You should be able to pop the door locks with the remote and open the bonnet.

The car wont start. it blinks a lot of lights makes clicking


I had these problems on my 2005 911 when the battery died. Apparently when it goes IT GOES. I had no problem with the battery until this time and then suddenly it was dead.

I've heard since that this is common on Porsche 996 when the battery is dead and then is should also be the case with the 986 Boxter.

I removed the old battery and left the car without a battery for at least 30 minutes (while doing some other maintainance). Put a new battery in and no problems after that. On most cars if you disconnect the battery for like 15 minutes the maintainance computer resets its self and all warninglights should dissapear unless there is a real fault, then the appropriate light should come back on!

Good luck.
Slick.

Manually openning the trunk of a 2002 porsche boxster


It can only be done using the key fob. Othersise use button inside the car. If your battery is flat you need a donor battery wiring to a connection in the fuse box (positive) anf door lock(negative) but see your hand book.

Porsche 2005 2.7 boxster flat battery?


Reach over the drivers side front tire in wheel well.  Reach around trim in upper wheel well to find a cable, running front to back, pull toward you and it should release the front hood.  Previous owner showed me this emergency release in case battery goes dead and I have recently had to use it myself on my 1998 Boxster.
