For Porsche Carrera, 911/996/997, Boxster, Cayenne, and other models ranging from 1997-2004 there is an inherent design flaw where the electric hood will not open when the battery is dead.
To combat this issue, it is recommended to remove the front left wheel to access the emergency hood latch.
Really? Remove the front wheel to open the hood?!
We have a better, simpler, cleaner, easier, and more elegant solution: the Self-Charge Auto Jumper.
Simply plug the Self-Charge Auto Jumper into the DC accessory socket of your vehicle, turn the device on, and wait. No messing with tools, removing tires, getting dirty, or anything difficult; just plug in and wait!
