There's a key hole. I own the same CAR and use it. You have to look under the silver band, and near the two plate lights you will find the hole. Believe me

I have a 2015 jaguar xjl the battery is disconnected and the trunk is shut, how can I open the trunk

I'm assuming no key for trunk. Simply connect z jumper pack to the battery cables. Then use the button in vehicle to open trunk. You might be able to access trunk from backseat of vehicle.

I have a 2003 x type I cannot get into the car the battery is dead

Two ways

Look at this video. There is a secret keyhole in the trunk lip outside. Put your remote key into it and open the trunk. One in there you can find a light connector and attach a battery charger to it.

My jaguar is dead I can't open my trunk to charge

I am not familiar with the Jag, however. If there is no manual trunk release or no key operated release mechanism, all may not be lost. Auto parts stores and some department stores sell a temporary power supply that operates on a small battery and plugs into your cigarett lighter. These are used to retain computer and radio settings when it is neccessary to disconnect the vehicles primary battery. This might offer enough voltage to open the trunk and allow access to the primary battery. Good Luck Vern

How to get into trunk if battery is dead on a 2001 jaguar s type

There should be a positive jumper cable terminal under the hood. Use another car and jumper cables to power the Jag and the trunk latch should work.

Battery dead 2003 S type. Cannot gain access to rear luggage compartment

plug a cheap jumper battery cable into the cigarette lighter. They are the kind that has a cigar lighter plug at each end. Or, hook a 9 volt battery to a cigar lighter plug. That should be enough to operate the trunk switch.

My batter is dead for my 2001 Jaguar S type. How do I get into the trunk to change the battery?

If there is not a key lock release on the rear, or a manual release on the inside, you could remove the bask seat and go into the trunk that way. Another trick you could do is wire a 12v battery to a plug that goes into the cegarette lighter outlet. That would give you power to pop the locks.
