I am having the same issue, this is the dumbest thing ever to not have a manual release cable where the battery resides... Duh hmmm what if the battery is dead and you need the battery power to release the electrical solenoid to get to the battery to either charge or replace? Then you find instructions that say to use a 12V battery or power sourse and a jumper wire and jump it to fuse C3 C is the 3rd row down and 3 is the 3rd fuse in from the left. So I did as it said and I get bells to chime and lights on, but my trunk will not release. The stupidity of this set up is so frustrating. Any other options and suggestions I dont know about would be of use, thank you...

I have a 2000 Porsche Boxster that periodically the trunks lock down along with the gas. The car runs great and the battery in the key is not dead. Just the trunks and the gas hinges lock down. I can...


There is a manual way to open the trunks, but they can be difficult to get to. If your Boxter is anything like my 2003 911 (and it is), there is a cable pull directly in front of the passenger front tire. Turn the steering wheel to the full left, then get out and see if you can fish your hand up between the plastic splash guards for this cable. Once you find it and pull it, it should manually pop the front hood/trunk. As for why the electronic popper is not working may be some bad relay or blown fuse. May be a trip to your local Porsche mechanic. Good luck.

Yes but you must remove the rear seat back and cushion to crawl through or power up the system from under the hood at the jumper cable hook ups.

Have 1999 boxter with dead batt. need to open hood to charge. can you tell me how? thanks, phil


Some remote battery starters, in addition to battery clamps, also have a separate cig. lighter male plug. Inserting this will give you enough juice to reset the alarm and then open the trunk. There are also two terminals down by the manual spoiler switch (in the driver's footwell) that can be wired to a separate battery to do the same.

Cannot unlock trunk


Why don't you charge the battery under the hood so you can pop your trunk. You can't do anything with a dead battery.

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.)

DEAD 2007 Jaguar VDP


the battery has gone dead you can not open the boot/trunk with the electrical system but you should be able to get to the battery by using the key in the lock on the outside of the the trunk its either in the xj badge or the number plate illumination holder. if you can open the engine compartment there is battery pos power points so you can jumpstart/power up the car
