Question about 2001 Porsche 911 Carrera
My Porsche 2001 911 was in storage for the winter. The battery is dead and I can't open the hood to charge the battery. I cannot open the fuse panel. The fuse panel button is also electric. I see something red above the fuse panel. Someone told me to pull this out and attach the red clip for a charger to this and the black clip to the door hinge, but this red thing does not pull out. I have tried to pull it out with pliers. I can put my hand under the dash and feel wires coming off of this but nothing metal which I could attach a charger clip to. Someone else said ther is a manual release in the wheel well. I have looked with a flashlight and I don't find anything. Any suggestions?

Testimonial: "Cheers unfortunately iam miles from my nearest dealer but a very good simple solution cheers for your time"
on this car you will have to use a batt connected thru the fuse panle you will need to power the side of the panle with the hood fuse then all you will need to do is open the hood

These cars are funky and this is normal...gauges on all of the earlier cars are for general reference...checking the oil level manually while the car is running and warmed up is the most proper way to do this...generally speaking, your pressure should drop as the car warms up, but still reach 5 bar on full accelleration (928's have the same gauge). The oil level gauge will actually increase as the car warms up...the difference can be dramatic.

no major issues to my knowledge. the carerra always reminded me of a highly modified v.w. with only 34.000 miles that car is just broke in. but, before you lay down 29gs. take it for a test run over to a reputable mechanic. to have checked out. if given a clean bill of health. go for it. just give it regular maintain. and you should be good to go for another few hundred thow miles or so..good day
