I have 1997 Jaguar XJR months back i parked valet, so i used the valet button inside the center console. since then i can not open my trunk with the key or the dash button. now my battery is dead PLEASE...

You have to reconfigure your fob via your valet button, this will enable the bootlock to recognise the singnal from dash button. I know your battery is dead, start it with a booster or jump leads, take for a good run and then when you think your battery has enough juice try to reconfigure. hope this helps, Jonjo.

Lights started flickering battery light came on Dash lights and gages went crazy now wont start

Like you said, battery may be flat. You can check that with a multimeter.

Next check the alternator. Faulty alternator leads to uncharged battery.

No dash lights no gauges or any power at dash, car wont start has antitheaft system

Dash lights are tied in to the tail lights, that way you know when the tails lights quit because the dash lights go out. Find the fuse and check it. There's a fuse diagram in the owner's manual. My problem was not a fuse; it was in the elctric regulator (or something like that), which my mechanic had to replace -- about $250 for the part, another $200+ for labor.
