Question about 2004 Porsche Carrera
You have to charge the battery through the cigarette lighter. Go to an auto parts store or walmart and there you can buy a car charger that will plug into the cigarette lighter. Once the battery charges a little, you can pop the bonnet. Once you have access to the battery, you can use a heavy duty battery charger or replace the battery.

SOURCE: flat battery
with the hood up, and facing the engine, on the left side of the engine there will be a red square cover that slides open to reveal the positive terminal. to the left of the positive terminal there will be a ground post attached to the body that is usually covered by a black cap. the battery is also on the left side of the engine compartment underneath the climate control air in let box which slides up and out once the 3 springs clips are released

SOURCE: bonnet will not open with key
Not sure if the solution can be applied to 2006 focus, I have an European Mk2 Focus which also having the same problem. Here is what you can try.
1. Jack up the car on the lifter.
2. Open bottom engine cover.
3. Loosen two (10mm) screws which secure the bonnet lock assembly. The screws located between air manifold and radiator.
4. Once the screws released, disconnect the alarm cable/socket connected to the lock assembly.
5. Try pull open the bonnet, it may require little force to pull the bonnet open due to a little white plastic link (~1" long, plus (+)shaped) is still connected between the lock assy. and cable assy. Failure to release bonnet lock is only caused by this plastic link!
6. Once the bonnet opened, the cable assy can be detached by pulling it from engine side out. Inspect the plastic link if it worn out.
1. Attach lock and cable assy. Ensure the plastic link is properly inserted in its place between lock and cable assy. Test the mechanism with the car key.
2. Insert the whole assembly from engine side out.
3. Secure with two 10mm screws, reconnect alarm cable.
4. Reinstall bottom engine cover.
Hope this help. Sorry for my English.

find bonnet catch and while someone pushes down on bonnet, pull the cable from behind the release lever (normally a black plastic covered wire) either the cable has siezed or the outer cable has sliped out of its retaining plate, if cable has broke, then access from under car with long rod to push lever over, again someone lightly pushing on bonnet will make it eaiser
