The hood lever is below the steering wheel on the left side of the car right by the driver side door.

    No car has an electric hood mechanism. They are all mechanical.

    Sometimes you do have to pound on the hood to get it to pop up, but I assure you it is not en electric system.

SOURCE: Battery dead; cannot open hood

If the cigarette lighter is an unswitched power point you could use it as a location to put a very small charge, just enough to get the hood release solenoid to activate. Years ago there was a device that was a male cigarette lighter power point at both ends and enough cable to go from car to car. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DO ANYTHING ELSE EXCEPT OPEN HOOD, DO NOT TURN KEY TO RUN OR ATTEMPT TO START. ANYTHING COULD RESULT. MINOR OR MAJOR. THERE IS A COMPUTER MEMORY SAVER THAT MATES A 9 VOLT TO A MALE CIGARETTE LIGHTER PLUG THIS MAY NOT BE ENOUGH TO RELEASE HOOD BUT MAYBE WITH A 12 VOLT FLASHLIGHT BATTERY (2 6 VOLT BATTERIES) WOULD WORK TO OPEN THE HOOD. (TURN EVERYTHING OFF EVEN DOME LIGHT.)

SOURCE: battery is dead, cannot open the hood, auto power locks

I found a few solutions to your problem here:
http://en.allexperts.com/q/Porsche-795/f_4364103.htm

A lot of them have some merit, depending on whether you want to actually manually open the hood or use the inovative options posted there. Either way, i hope this helps and best of luck with your problem!

SOURCE: 1999 porsche 911 how to open hood with dead battery

The cheapest way to get around this and get enough voltage into the system to open the hood is to purchase a cigarette lighter extension (about 3 feet) and cut off the female plug on the end. Strip the 2 wires back a few inches and attach one to the positive and the other to the negative on a set of jumper cables. Attach the other end of the negative jumper to a battery. With the keyless entry in hand, touch the positive cable to the positive terminal on the battery and press the unlock button until you hear the car doors click. Once it clicks, you should be able to use the hood latch to gain access to the battery.

How do i open a trunk to a 1996 Crown vic? I can't use a key and i can't open from inside because my battery is dead?


There should be a safety trunk release located on the upper rear window deck platform- a black handpull . If it is still intact- it should pop the trunk lid. At least it works that way on a 1997 Crown Vic.

Where does the ignition switch and fuse panel get its power from? 4 dead fuses, not blown.


I have found with these Crown Vic's,especially police cars,they manage when the get in accidents to hit the right front of the cars and when they do they damage the wiring harness. The rain,salt,snow get in the harness and you eventually have problems. Look under the car in front of the right front tire and you'll see. Good size wiring harness. Look at it for damage,or sometimes you'll see like a light green dust coming out of the harness. Usually where I find my breaks,shorts or opens.

1999 Crown turned ignition switch to start - heard pop - no electrical power


If nothing works including the lights, something happened between the battery and the fuse box.
There are some fuseable links between the battery and the starter solenoid or between the solenoid and the fuse box.
I'd start with the battery cables and look for those fuseable link wires.
