Question about 1997 Porsche Boxster
There are three main ways to do this;
1) Use a universal plug that fits into the cigarette lighter which you can buy from the likes of Radio Shack and crimp a couple of small lugs onto the wires. You can then plug this into the cigarette lighter and jumper another battery to these lugs. This will provide enough current to open the hood.
2) There is a mechanical backup cable release for the trunk lock. It is meant to be used if part of the electrical opening system fails, such as the solenoid, so it's not easy to access. You need to jack up the car, remove the left front wheel, remove the fender liner and from there you should see the loop pull handle of the cable.
3) Another method with Porsche is to unlock the lid with an external 'donor battery', after pulling out positive terminal A in the fuse box.
Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my answer. Many Thanks.
