Question about Porsche Boxster

1 Answer

I can't get the rear trunk to open on my 2004 Porsche Boxster. with the button on the key fob or inside the car. It has been working fine and just stopped yesterday. I would appreciate any help you can give me as the dealer will charge me a small fortune to figure it out even if it is a simple problem. Thanks

When that happens it is often because something is stuck inside the lock. In that case you hear a whirring sound, and the trunk will not open.
The only easy procedure you can try is by unlocking the trunk, lifting the rear spoiler to get a grip on the rear edge of the lid and unlocking the latch.
If that does not work any other procedure may damage the car. In that case better asking the help to a mechanic, it will cost some money, but you do not risk to damage the car.

How do I open the fuel filler door on a 2004 Porsche Boxster S when the battery in the key fob is dead?


Open the passenger side door, there is a small round pull cable directly behind the fuel filler door. Pull it GENTLY, about a quarter of an inch- it will unlock the fuel door. Pull it too hard and it will break.

Use the front trunk release on the key fob or in the car, to the left of the front drivers seat.

I have a 1997 boxster and the central locking does not work, the doors all lock with the button on the dash, but the key fob wont work and if you lock it with the key it only locks the drivers door?


I connected a cigarette lighter (male on both sides) between my car and another car. Do not start the car, just wait until the battery has a little charge. The front bonnet should open allowing you to replace the battery. You will need to recode the radio (http://www.a2dvoices.com/realitycheck/porsche/ )

Alternative: Some newer boxsters have a red power post new the fuse box.

Manually openning the trunk of a 2002 porsche boxster


It can only be done using the key fob. Othersise use button inside the car. If your battery is flat you need a donor battery wiring to a connection in the fuse box (positive) anf door lock(negative) but see your hand book.

Access rear trunk release cable


This happened to me too on my Porsche Boxter S 2004 - the actuator is working, the battery is charged - but the rear trunk won't open from the key fob or the inside release.

I removed the driver's side rear tire, I removed one nut from the wheel well cover closest to the back of the car, I looked inside and saw a cable. The wheel well cover could be pulled back enough to fit my hand in, so I reached in and pulled - the tunk popped open.

The problem is that my primary rear trunk release cable is broken - still need to fix that problem - but the trunk is open.
