Question about 2001 Porsche Boxster
Cannot open trunk lid with the jumper cable to the fuse box system.
Cheryl I have just had the same problem, and not able to open the trunk lid as outlined in the handbook i.e. using donor battey to connect to the fuse box. Had the AA out but they were stumped. It seems as if the car has immobilised itself.
Have you had a solution?
If you have tiny fingers you can actually use a screw driver to kind a open a little space where the pull switch by the door and pull the cable manually. It worked for me so give it a try.

I have two Boxsters and have had to use this fuse box procedure on each. On the first car I followed the instructions in the manual and it worked perfectly. On the second car, I followed the identical procedure and nothing happened. After much fiddling, I realized that the clamp on to the door latch was not making a ground connection. Try touching the ground clamp directly to the head of one of the bolts on the door latch. This worked for me and the hood opened instantly. The quality of the ground connection seems to be the key. By the way, if you do not want to use a donor battery, a battery charger will provide sufficient power to release the hood latch. Good luck.
