Nothing happens.
Please help[.
Thank you,
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.

If you can open the hood, there is a battery pos(+) jump post in or near fuse box. Hook up a jumper box or jumper cables to power up the vehicle systems.

Hi, if you can open the hood, use jumper cables to open the trunk. Connect the negative cable to chassis ground or even the engine. Connect the positive cable to either the big nut on the starter solenoid, the fuse box, or the big charge wire nut on the back of the alternator.

1) how do i get the trunk open if the battery in dead on a 2004 745Li? 2) can i just change it with the same one or is there something more involved?


I would have expected that you could open the trunk on an '04 with the key, but
There should be a lug under the hood where you attach a positive jumper cable. It will likely be in a plastic box with a "+" symbol. You attach the negative jumper cable to any solid unpainted metal under the hood.
Use another car or the new battery to power the car via the jumper cables so you can open the trunk.

I have had this occur before. After I called AAA they showed me what I was doing wrong. The diagram in the book dose not show the correct place to ground the cable. It shows that you should attach to a door latch near the rear of the car. Acutally, you need to ground the cable by attaching to the door hinge. Hope that helps.

2002 porches boxter -dead battery and trunk wont open to jump...help outside in the freezing chicago cold


You will have to go to the fuse panel and "jump" the hood open. There is a little nub that pulls out with a copper band. You will need to hook the positive side of the jumper cables to the nub and the negative to something metal. The hood will immediately open. Hope this helps someone else.
