Question about 1999 Porsche 911 Carrera

Still having issues w/ no battery access

On my '99 911-996 C2 - still can't find front hood release cable beneath bumper, nor under passenger side wheel well plastic housing, and no red terminal in fuse box to connect charger to. I did, however, gain access to engine compartment by locating the cable beneath the left tail light (pretty easy) and giving it a tug. Hooked up my battery charger and put the key in the ignition. Yea - all the lights came on. Tried to turn over the engine, it didn't start, and now no more lights. What have I done? What do I do? There still must be a way to the battery...

If all the lights came on you should be able to turn the alarm off with the keyless entry. From that you should be able to open the hood with the hood latch inside the car to the left of the driver seat.

How to access my 2004 Mercedes E320 wagon's main battery?


Hi

my knowledge about W210 (Sedan) and S210 (wagon)

Not really sure if other modles got the same location.

Battery located under the Right Back Passenger seat.

for the seadan ... you may have to remove the back seat by pressing the corner bottoms in both sides then left it up and drag it to front to got it free... you will see the battery under it.
for the wagon... open the back right door and release the bottom seat by pressing the lock handle at the side of the seat up.... seat bottom will be cimi free to be lifted to front and then you will have free access to the battery.


if you just need to recharch the low battery... you can find the charging plugs under the hood to the left side ( +) will be covered with black plastic box... open it and connect the possitive cable (red)... ( - ) will be few inches front of that to be conected with nigative cable (black)

Hood cable broke or came loose on 1992 coupe deville cant get hood up


You'll have to try going thru the grille or from under the bumper to access the hood latch.
You might want to look at another GM product to gauge were the latch is in your car.
Sometimes you can use a coat hanger as a hook to pull the latch from outside the grille or between the grille and hood. Or use a long screwdriver from under the bumper.

My Toyota 200 VX V8 has a dead battery and I can not gain access to open the hood and replace teh battery what should I do?


You need to access the hood release at the release mechanism in the centre of the bonet. With any luck with that model hopfully you can access it with a long screwdriver through the grill or reaching up from under the car behind the bumper.

Hood release cable not attached to release mechanism under the hood. Can the hood be popped (opened) from front?? . Battery went dead and when I tried to open the hood the cable was loose (detached)


This same thing happened to my Blazer. If you reach your hand up behind the front bumper and use a hammer you can hit the release latch and it will open.

Is there another fuse box than under the hood.


There are 2 fuse boxes, they are called Bussed Electrical Centers.
The front Bussed Electrical
Center (This is one fuse box) is located in
the front of the engine
compartment on the
passenger’s side. Lift the
cover to gain access

Rear Underseat Bussed Electrical Center (BEC)
The rear BEC is located
beneath the rear seat on the
driver’s side. The rear seat
cushion must be removed to
access the BEC. See
“Removing the Rear Seat
Cushion” in the Index.
