Question about 1999 Porsche Boxster
Hello and thank you for uisng Fixya.
Is there any way you can open the engine compartment?
If you can open the engine compartment, and you can have a clear access to the starter to clamp the jumper cable, then clamp it to the positive battery wire that is connected to the starter, make sure and (be very careful about it) that there is no way it will touch the body or the engie (note; when you crank the engine it will wable, and it may came loose the touch the body of the car or the engine) when you clamp the cable be very certain it's clear, then clamp the negative wire of the jumper on any metal on the engine, make sure there is no raw fuel around where you are clamping the negative.
Best suggestion is to have some one near the supplying battery or car to releas the positive of the jumper cable as soon as then engine start.Hope I helped with the repair of your problem.
An Accept from you is how I get paid.
And a positive feed back tells me how I did with the repair.

These additional features should be in the owners manual but just in case its not I know on some there is a manual release under the dash on the drivers side And others it is under the bumper. look hard because these where not intended for daily use and are tucked out of sight. Also if all else fails you can call the dealer and they will be able to tell you. Hope this helps. Please rate me if i've helped. Good luck.
