I'm a idiot (my first porsche)


Recommended Posts

I have read a few forums on how to get to my trunk when the battery is dead...well i took out the battery and closed the hood ( i know i'm a idiot).

I have a 1999 C2 Cab.

1. I have heard and read about jumping the hood release using the fuse box, what i have found on the net it doesn't have a pic off a 1999, 996. Will this work for my car?

2. All tools are in the trunk so i can not take off the front tire, so do i have another option (like take off the cover to the manual lever's inside the cab)?

once again this is my first post and my first porsche. I just got back from Afghanistan and i want/ need to bring home my baby.

Thanks for the help

Thanks for the quick reply... I have noticed your name on alot of post's and it's great to see all the support.

Like i said before this is my first porsche and i'm learning new things all the time just read on the site alone, i don't even check out others any more.

I have done the search for my problem but it doens't say to much about 996 is it possible to link the correct add. in this forum?

I am very new to Blogs, forums...ect, so it takes me a little time to get a hang of all this...

thanks again it's greatly appreciated

I had the same problem and after I finally found the pull cord and opened the hood I made sure that it was just behind the towing plug for the next time I well need to use it. Theres a pull cord for the rear too, make sure that you now where it is before you need that one; I moved it to a location that I now and can get to. good luck! :)

If you look behind the the right front tire wheel shield you will be able to find the pull cable. Here is a DIY for the 1997-04 (986) Boxster that is also applicable to the 996. Easier to find when the trunk latch is operable and you can remove the headlight and move the pull ring to the tow plug in the bumper.
