Do you have an owners Manual, it may have refferance to this type of problem, should it ever ocure.Also for in the future it might be a good idea to purchase a repair manual, Haynes or Chiltons are both very good repair manuals for the do it yourselfers, @ most Automotive Parts Stores cary them. However I would locate the starter on the vehicle and connect a jumper cable to the starter ( this would be the Red Positive cabls ) where the battery cable connects to the starter and the ground cable to a good grounding spot near by. Connect the other two cable leads to the battery you intend to put in the vehicle to replace the old one and this should get you into the trunk. Make sure when you hook the cable clamp to the positive termanel on the starter you do not come in contact with any other exposed wire terminals. Good Luck and Happy New Year.

It is most certainly your battery. Those big batteries need a trickle charge on them if you're not driving them a lot. On the 996 Carrera it seems to use a lot of battery power to turn over the engine so first thing I'd suggest is trickle charging it (up front directly in front of windscreen) then try, if that doesn't work, change the battery. If it's completely dead and you can't get the front hood open, there are a positive and negative terminal for getting a current through in the engine bay bottom left(i think). 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.

A lot of them have some merit, depending on whether you want to actually manually open the hood or use the inovative options posted there. Either way, i hope this helps and best of luck with your problem!

1999 porsche 911 how to open hood with dead battery


The cheapest way to get around this and get enough voltage into the system to open the hood is to purchase a cigarette lighter extension (about 3 feet) and cut off the female plug on the end. Strip the 2 wires back a few inches and attach one to the positive and the other to the negative on a set of jumper cables. Attach the other end of the negative jumper to a battery. With the keyless entry in hand, touch the positive cable to the positive terminal on the battery and press the unlock button until you hear the car doors click. Once it clicks, you should be able to use the hood latch to gain access to the battery.
