I have a 2007 Cayman with 29,000 miles. I store the car each winter. I usually leave the hood partially open so if the battery goes dead, I can still open the hood. Well, I left the hood closed this time and now I have a dead battery. I tried the fuse panel jump trick and that did not work. I studied the emergency release cable online, took out my plastic fender liner and tire and the emergency release cable is not there. Now what? I don't know if there are any other options??? The only other thing I can think of is using one of those cigarette lighter chargers to generate enough charge to use the hood lever next to the seat. Is that something I should look into? Will that hurt any of the electronics? I would imagine from that point forward, I would have to get much more invasive to get at the battery. Any other suggestions? I'm getting close to being at a loss.
