    i really don't know porches , but do you have owners manual , there must be a key hole or a pull strap or something to open trunk , and also i would expect jumper points under the hood by engine , don't tell me engine is in trunk too , :( ,

You will have to go to the fuse panel and "jump" the hood open. There is a little nub that pulls out with a copper band. You will need to hook the positive side of the jumper cables to the nub and the negative to something metal. The hood will immediately open. Hope this helps someone else.

It's freezing everywhere today!  I don't know if you can access it, but the positive side of the battery is normally connected to the starter or the solenoid terminal sometimes locate atop the starter.
You can also charge, but not jump, your battery via the cigarette lighter. I wouldn't go over 4-5 amps charge current in case the circuit is fused.

I have a dead battery on my 2002 Porsche Boxter and can't open the hood to jump it. How do I open the hood with a run down battery?

Hello there

In your right front fender is an "emergency operating cable" to open the front hood.
To get to it you need to remove the fender lining and there next to the rear of headlight is the cable.

Rear trunk on boxter porche

Manual release cable located behind rear bumper / tail light. Stainless cable and very hard to see, but it is there. Just remember, it is very firm to pull, so use pliers once you find it.

I need to jump my battery the trunk wont open for me to access it

check under the hood for a red cap over a stud looking rod, that would be your battery positive jumping rod, then just ground it to a suitable clean grounding spot away from any fans, belts or pully's

My Boxter battery is dead and I am not able open the trunk lid.

I have had this occur before. After I called AAA they showed me what I was doing wrong. The diagram in the book dose not show the correct place to ground the cable. It shows that you should attach to a door latch near the rear of the car. Acutally, you need to ground the cable by attaching to the door hinge. Hope that helps.
