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.

I have a dead battery on my 2002 Porsche Boxter and can't open the hood to jump it. How do I open the hood with a run down battery?


Hello there

In your right front fender is an "emergency operating cable" to open the front hood.
To get to it you need to remove the fender lining and there next to the rear of headlight is the cable.

I have a porsche boxter 986 year 2000 and can not open the bonet


you need to pull the C3 fuse and insert a wire and then put the fuse back in.
connect the neg ground to the metal steering column and the positive to the wire. close the car door and turn the door key on and off three times. open the door and now the hood latch will work.
