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: 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.

I have a dead battery. I need to know how I can open the hood so I can get to the battery


If your cable is broken, not easy, so I assume you are pulling release and it is not opening hood, which is typical reason for not being able to open hood. You will need to identify where break is first, and this is the tough part, sometimes it is simply a stretched cable which happens before it snaps completely. You may have to trace cable to hood latch, you may have to cut cable to access inside wire and then use vise grips to release and then replace whole cable. FREE-PPV.com

How to open hood cable broke


With quite some (intentional) difficulty and a long screwdriver, you can access the latch mechanism from underneath and behind the front bumper. Underskirt covers and other stuff will have to be removed.

2004 Sable hood release is not working (cable broke) I bought used how can I access the engine compartment externally. Need to replace battery. My garage isn't open today.


a coat hanger or solid peice of steel rod will be needed to use to grab onto the hood latch
it is not an easy thing to do for you need to fish the wire to the hood latch and snag onto the area were the hood cable attaches to
with the end of the wire bent into a J hook you can pull on the cable which will in tun open the hood.
This is maining performed by bodymen when disassembling wrecked vehicles to open the hood
If you know a good bodyman he can help you too if need be
