Q: dead battery on 2009 Porsche 911

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
stored my car over the winter, now I can't get the battery to even have enough juice to release the front hood, so that I can fully charge the car battery.
I tried utilizing the fuse box, red (positive connector) and the car hinge for a ground. No Luck, what am i missing?

If you're trying to open the hood by just completing to circuit in the fuse box, the fuse was doing exactly that. The button that you push to open the hood is still the problem. Try pressing the button when you plug it up to a voltage and make sure you have a good ground.
I haven't researched it, but i think there should be a manual release for the hood that overrides the normal electronic way.
