New 1998!

Hey Guys!
I got a new (to me!) 1998! The car is well cared for... And all though I had to say good bye to my 1984 944.... I am In love!!!


And for my first dumb and annoying newbie question.... The FRUNK release is somewhat. Dodgy..... The lever does not raise but stops after lifting about an inch....
Pressing on the hood seems to help...... But not always.... Tried the it with key on /off
Running and. Not..... The only thing I haven't tried is the remote unlock..... The keys have dead battery's or don't work... So that is my next step.....

FYI the rear truck works normally..... Anyone have any ideas???

I believe '98 Frunk release is manual cable release only (at least on mine it is. The Truck has electronic release via key fob). So I would say something mechanical--kinked cable somewhere?
