SOURCE: hood release cable broken, how do i open the hood ?

I have a similar problem with my 1992 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme. The way I open the hood is to reach my hand between the radiator and the front of the car, and for me there is a bar running right up the middle if I follew that too the top, and on the drivers side of that bar should be the hood release, and I feel around till I feel the hood release cable, and then I push on the lever that the cable is attached too, most of the time this works. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: battery dead can not open hood to boost

The 1999 doesn't have the red connector in the fuse box. That method isn't possible.

But I had the same problem and fixed it. This will sound weird, but trust me, it works.

You need:

1) A paint stir stick.
2) A coat hanger straightened out with one end bent into a small "j" hook.
3) A flashlight.

There is a loop of cable that goes from the engine compartment latch to an area underneath the left rear tail light. Pulling on this cable will open the engine compartment.

To open the engine compartment, you need to:

1) Use the paint stir stick to gently pry up the left rear tail light slightly. Don't pry it up too much and break anything: just pry it up a little so that a small gap opens up between the bottom of the tail light and the car body.

2) Shine the flashlight into the gap and look for a small, thin stainless steel cable. Use the "j" hook end of the coat hanger to pull the cable out from under the tail light.

3) Once the cable has been pulled out enough so that you can grasp it with your fingers, give it a sharp tug. This will pop open the latch to the engine compartment. Now you can jump the battery and start the car.

Good Luck!

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: I have a 2001 Boxster that I can not get the front hood open.

its still the same to access the emergency release cable, then you will need to access and replace the broken cable that attatches the latch to the release motor (see my other posting)

Hello, i have a carerra 911. i disconnected the battery as i will be out for a while, but i accidentally shut the hood all the way. usually i keep it slightly open so i can open it since it is electrical....

Porsche made for this reason Emergency release cable.

The emergency release cable is located inside the top of the passenger front wheel well liner.
Remove the liner then the cable is near the head light ,

2001 porsche carrera dead battery cant open the Hood?


Use jumper cables. In the fuse box (interior of the car near the pedals to the left) is a booklet with instructions. You need to slide out one of the "fuses" (it's not a fuse, but a red thing that you pull out) and connect the positive terminal of a jumper cable to it. The negative goes connected to the door latch (on the car, not door). Connect the other end to a running car's battery or a charger and you can use the regular button to open the hood and access the baterry compartment from there.

How to open the hood with a totally flat battery


i think it could be one of three things; the cable is detached from the handle, the cable is broken inside the sheathing, the cable sheathing is not anchored at the hood latch.

in the case of the cable being detached from the handle, look under the dash and inspect. if the cable is visible, use a pair of pliers to yank it. in the other cases you will have to gain access to the latch from under the car or through the grill. then it's a matter of releasig the latch with a screwdriver or similar tool which could prove to be difficult.
