Question about 1998 Jaguar XK8
The only way I can open the boot is with the fob. I have pressed the valet button and it makes no difference.
The key hole for the boot is in the xkr bage

There is an aperture between the letters X and K (I think) -insert the key and turn clockwise (I think) and will open if not seized

SOURCE: jaguar xj8 boot wont open
Just bought my 98 a week ago....from what I can figure out....the valet mode disables the inside button....until the trunk is opened by the key. From what I understand also....there is a valet key....and an owner key. (I saw the differences online this week) which also ties in with valet mode.
