Question about 2000 Porsche 911 Carrera

1 Answer

Battery is completely dead on my 2000 Porsche 911 C4

Car is stored, battery is positioned under the hood. Battery is completely dead. Hood release will not open hood with battery dead. There is a red release handle under the hood which I can apparently pull and hood should open. However this had been unsuccessful. Unless I am doing something wrong. So I can not access the battery for replacement. Further I tried a low amperage charger through the lighter to give me enough juice to unlatch the hood, and this did not work either. I would appreciate any help you might be able to offer.

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.

1999 911 Porsche hood latch wont pull up to open fron hood


On the 996 and 997 there is a panel on the drivers side footwell that has a fuse panel and exposes a red positive terminal that pulls out slightly. You can connect the positive lead from a battery or charger to this terminal and the negative lead to a convenient ground spot like the door catch.

I removed the battery for the winter from my 996 and went through this process in the Spring when I realized my mistake.

Same as above... cant pop hood with a dead battery


If you open the fuse box in driver's compartment by your left leg, there is a red plug that you can pull that will expose a positive lead.

Put a charger on the lead and ground the other side of the charger to the frame and it will provide power to use the hood latch.

I have seen other people write about using the car charger that fits into the cigarette lighter but I have no personal knowledge. I hope that is helpful.

There is also an emergency release under one of the wheel wells but I never attempted to look for it.

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.

2004 911 battery is not responding. Where is it located?


its under the hood.....in the front. if you can get it open its there, if not there are jumper poles in the rear engine bay.
Also a metal bar you can jump in the fuse box to give you enough electric to open the front hood....
If all else fails goto local porsche dealer and get them to explain how to operate the emergency cable release in either the driver or passenger side front wheel well. they get this all the time they wont be shocked...
