Hey guys, I wanted to give a quick reply -- I did not want to venture to find the emergency release, so I order a Wagan EL9796 Easy Quick Jumper In-Car Jumpstarter. These connect to the cigarette lighters of a dead car and a donor. When I plugged them in, the car receive INSTANT power to open the hood. They did not supply enough power to charge the battery to starting power, but it definitely was enough to pop the hood. I will he holding the Wagan cables in the car in case this happens in the future. Thanks to everyone that gave some advise!
Quick follow up: Or, could I get a double 'male' cigarette lighter cable to use donor car to charge my current battery? Thanks for you time!
You are going to have to use the emergency release cable - the terminal in the fuse box was not added until model year 2001. Thanks Loren --- I was trying everything I could to not have to remove the wheel panel, as I have never done anything like that before. Do you think it would be possible to get a battery charger that hooked to the cigarette adapter that could give the battery enough charge to open the trunk? Thanks for your help!
I have a dead battery in my 99 996. The hood is locked, and I have seen the information on how to jump the positive terminal in the fuse box - I have attached a pic of what should be there. However, when I opened my fuse box, I am not seeing a positive terminal in the attached pic. I tripled checked using pics and diagrams, and I had a friend check as well. Is this possible? I have tried searching for the part online as well, and I had no luck. Any help would be appreciated!
