You need to pull the C3 fuse and insert a wire and then put the fuse back in.
connect the neg ground to the metal steering column and the positive to the wire. close the car door and turn the door key on and off three times. open the door and now the hood latch will work.

My porsche boxter had a disconected battery & the front hood/bonet pull would not opperate to allow me to reattatch the battery.
I fixed the problem by undoing three 5mm alan bolts that attahed the bonet & boot release cables to the chassis . just undo alan bolts, three or four turns and the unit slides upward at the back of the unit there is a pull cable to unlock the cables pull back and the bonet & boot cables can be operated
if you have a later model just pull the fuse box cover off & ther is a red tab to pull off, where u can conect a jump start pack red to the terminal red to the terminal black to earth ie door hinge.
if your battery is just flat conect power through cigar lighter.

Personally I would this back to the dealership and have them a just it since it was a purchased product ( replacement) and have them do the adjustment. and let them see the issue that your key is having it may be a faulty key.

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.

How do I get my Porsche BoxterS bonnet open with a flat battery


I used a cigarette lighter (male plugs on both sides). Connect to your car and another car. Wait a while. When the battery is charged a little, the front bonnet will open. You will need to recode your radio (http://www.a2dvoices.com/realitycheck/porsche/).

Some years also have a power post the pulls out by the fuse box.

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.
