Porsche carrera 4s,windows are both up,battery is disconnected,can't get the trunk open!


Behind the passenger side wheel covers, up towards the front bumper, is a stainless steel braided cable with a loop. Pull this to manually open the trunk. It is well hidden and an emergency solution to opening the trunk if the servo has failed, your fuse box power connection fails, or you have no power. Good luck

The battery in my 2006 Porsche Carrera is dead. I can't open the trunk or the engine compartment. How do I get open these so I can jump or replace the battery?


Under the left side of the instrument panel there is a fuse box. In this fuse box there is a red pullout sleeve. if you apply a booster pack to this sleeve you can now use the pwer unlock button for the trunk area where the battery is. Hope this helps

2001 porsche carrera dead battery cant open the Hood?


Use jumper cables. In the fuse box (interior of the car near the pedals to the left) is a booklet with instructions. You need to slide out one of the "fuses" (it's not a fuse, but a red thing that you pull out) and connect the positive terminal of a jumper cable to it. The negative goes connected to the door latch (on the car, not door). Connect the other end to a running car's battery or a charger and you can use the regular button to open the hood and access the baterry compartment from there.

Battery dead can not open hood to boost


The 1999 doesn't have the red connector in the fuse box. That method isn't possible.

But I had the same problem and fixed it. This will sound weird, but trust me, it works.

You need:

1) A paint stir stick.
2) A coat hanger straightened out with one end bent into a small "j" hook.
3) A flashlight.

There is a loop of cable that goes from the engine compartment latch to an area underneath the left rear tail light. Pulling on this cable will open the engine compartment.

To open the engine compartment, you need to:

1) Use the paint stir stick to gently pry up the left rear tail light slightly. Don't pry it up too much and break anything: just pry it up a little so that a small gap opens up between the bottom of the tail light and the car body.

2) Shine the flashlight into the gap and look for a small, thin stainless steel cable. Use the "j" hook end of the coat hanger to pull the cable out from under the tail light.

3) Once the cable has been pulled out enough so that you can grasp it with your fingers, give it a sharp tug. This will pop open the latch to the engine compartment. Now you can jump the battery and start the car.

Good Luck!
