Hi Folks,
 
Help please ....
 
I have just attached a trickle charger as the car (991.2) will not be doing much (lockdown etc. etc.).
Q: Can the bonnet stay slightly open (not pushed fully down) while the charger is fitted and working or will this cause lights to stay/come on or some of the systems to stay active and drain the battery (faster than it is bein charged)? 
 
Thanks
Robert

Hi Robert,
not 100% sure on yours but I do leave bonnet open slightly on my SC (first catch on the lock mechanism to let the trickle charger leads through ) and lights don't come on, works absolutely fine.

Hi Robert,
I have both my Carrera 3.2 and 944 S2 on trickle charge. The Carrera is on the first catch on the lock mechanism and the 944 has the boot closed and car locked. So either way has worked absolutely fine.

I imagine the 991 is electric latch? You would need to close the latch without closing the bonnet otherwise you wont be able to get it properly asleep and set he alarm etc so the trickle charger can do its job. On my 993 I just push the latch down with a screwdriver and the car thinks its all shut.
