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: 1999 911 Porsche hood latch wont pull up to open fron hood

On the 996 and 997 there is a panel on the drivers side footwell that has a fuse panel and exposes a red positive terminal that pulls out slightly. You can connect the positive lead from a battery or charger to this terminal and the negative lead to a convenient ground spot like the door catch.

I removed the battery for the winter from my 996 and went through this process in the Spring when I realized my mistake.

It is most certainly your battery. Those big batteries need a trickle charge on them if you're not driving them a lot. On the 996 Carrera it seems to use a lot of battery power to turn over the engine so first thing I'd suggest is trickle charging it (up front directly in front of windscreen) then try, if that doesn't work, change the battery. If it's completely dead and you can't get the front hood open, there are a positive and negative terminal for getting a current through in the engine bay bottom left(i think). Hope this helps.

How can I open the luggage compartment of a Porsche 911 when the battery is dead?


The best way to do this is to put battery voltage back into the system through the cigarette lighter. You can buy a battery charger at an auto parts store or walmart that is designed to charge the battery through the cigarette lighter. It will have a plug on it that insert right into the cigarette lighter. Let it charge a little, and try the button again. It will pop right open.
