Removed lock solenoid actuator and tested off vehicle, cleaned up terminals and pulled some fuses and relays cleaning wherever I thought necessary, also cleaned locking rod at filler cap with maintenance spray and lubricated mechanism inside boot underneath filler area. Both items now working but still not sure what the cause was.Suspect dirty terminals but these were not readily apparent

There is a "hidden" button on the underside of the chrome Jaguar strip, in the middle, I would say between the G and the U. This opens the boot when the car is already unlocked, at least it does on my 07 model, I don't know if the facelift cars are different. Are you pressing that or just using the key fob? I had a problem with the fob not opening the boot, although the aforementioned button would unlock it, and that was cured by changing the lock mechanism. There have also been some interesting posts on the forum about failure to open being caused by bad earths and a workround for that problem. This seems to be characterised by the numberplate lights flickering, only if they are switched on IIRC, as you try to open the boot. Try a search if that seems relevant.
get someone to push down on the boot lid, if using the pull lid opener, or if using the key push down and turn key yourself. when it clicks, have them/you let it go, it should open, if it doesnt then get in the trunk from the back seat, crawell in and take a flashlight and a flat screwdriver. turn the key slot from the inside. You will probably find a bent or missing key shaft. If it does open from pushing down on it and pulling the release or using the key, then you have a bent locking clasp or a bent ketch on the body of the car. where it ketches, looks like it may be loose or bent to me. take care
i am sure this vehicle has a key slot and its behind the emblem ,seem to remember this question before and i wasnt sure but they posted a answer and their was a key hole behind the jaguar chrome strip thats across the boot lid ,but this may have been a different year ?? but as the battery is in the boot it must have access if it goes flat
Use your ignition key in the keyhole under the lip of the boot lid by the number plate or hidden under the boot chrome trim, all these cars have an overide to the electric boot opener its either a key at the boot or sometimes a cable pull inside the cabin or by the rear seat.
good luck - hopes this helps.
your can check is it something stuck in the lock, first operate your roof either way, if you are going to open the roof as a first action boot lid will open to backward, let boot lid fully open and stop operating the roof, ignition off and have a look if something stuck you can see, if you are going to close the roof let close the roof and before close the boot lid stop operating roof switch, otherwise faulty boot lid lock, if faulty lock but you can try by mettle key blade which is in your electronic key, first take out mettle key from electronic key then insert mettle key in to the key hole in boot lid turn fully left and open boot if not work turn fully left and push it in, is this information helped you?
If you open the boot and close the boot latch (in the middle of the boot lid)with a screwdriver or something does the boot light go off when you press the little plunger for the boot light? If it does not it may be the boot latch. It's also worth checking the wiring loom on the right of the boot by keeping the boot plunger pushed in with the boot latch closed as above and squeezing the wiring loom in various places to see if the light goes off as it should.it may be a damaged wire in the loom......
Also the plastic trim piece on the rear lower end of the trunk (boot) is loose, the light comes on. It is held by 4 plastic pins. When in place properly, no light, when loose, trunk open light is on, even when trunk is secured.
