996 Engine compartment lid release help

Hello,
I have a 2002 996 Carrera.
The engine-lid switch is not working.
The emergency release cable has come lose. I used it a few times to open the lid, went to try it again and it did not open the lid, just kept coming out about a foot more than usually.

The alarm box was replaced (got wet) just prior to me purchasing the car.
I tried a new switch, no luck.

Any suggestion on how to open the lid? Access the latch? Jump the switch? anything that will open the lid?

Does anyone know if the rear switch is programmed or tied to the alarm box?
I suspect the Alarm box may have issues? will not go into why.

Thanks!

I might have missed something but the link only discusses the front luggage compartment lid.
My issue is the engine compartment lid.
Thanks,
