Tip & How-To about Jaguar X-Type
Jaguar in their wisdom did not put an internal release for the Boot (Trunk) inside the car. If you are in the unfortunate position of locking your keys in the Boot (Trunk) here's how to get them back.
You will need to locate IP5 pin 16 on the General Electronic Control Module that sits RH side behind your instrument panel (UK Car) .
IP5 is the large brown 23 way connector that goes into the module.
Take this pin to ground then your boot will pop open.
