My 1996 jaguar vanden plas trunk switch on the driver side of the car doesnt work and my key doesnt work. How do i hotwire the trunk to make it open?


check fuses and relays --check power to switch and test switch if switch bad replace and if need access now can jump switch to release actuator --but if key doesnt work either the problem sounds like a damaged latch or debris stuck in latch lock --if key turns try pushing down and up on trunk if latch is not cooperating then will need to remove rear seat

My 2004 vanden plas jaguar trunk wont open, i heard the open click and now the open trunk light is on the care, however the trunk is jammed or something


could be frozen if it has rained or snowed. you can try to open it by pulling on it a little harder, but you may risk damaging the weatherstripping of the car or the latch handle or latch. Pour some warm water down around the door, avoid the windows, might thaw them out.

1996 jag xjs , the battery is dead , I need to jump start it but the trunk won't open ,battery in the trunk , can it be jumped from under the hood ? and why won't the trunk open even with a key ?


The trunk latch is operated by a solenoid which it requires power to operate. since the batery is flat then it won't work. I'm not sure where the positive terminal is under the hood but you can connect the positive lead to the alternator wire terminal, and the negative lead can be connected any where on the engine.
Good luck......

My trunk latch is jammed on my 1995 Jaguar XJ6, not an electrical problem. How can I get it to open?


Have you tried using the actual key? If not, try inserting the key in the trunk hole while holding it to the open position, rock the trunk up and down. You may have a strap or something caught in the latch.

On my 2002 vw jetta the trunk will not open i have tried both the lever on side of door as well as the button on my key i have also crawled into the trunk from the backseat to use the emergency handle...


· There is no motor per say, (a servo that pulls the cable, youd should hear it, every time other then unlocking with key, or pulling inside emergency latch) the cable that connects to the trunk latch mechanism. There is a servo that opens the trunk when you unlock with key fob, or driver side activation. In the trunk pulling on emergency handle, it is pure cable action. One of the most reported problems is that a trunk will not close. In this instance the usual cause is a broke spring in trunk latch. In your case I am guessing that the cable has become detached from locking mechanism. I have not had this problem, however if I did, my first attempt would involve removing the trunk lid linker, there are about 8 or so screws (with felt on them so they are not so noticeable), remove all screws, liner should almost fall off when all screws are removed. I then could inspect latch, manually unlock, then stand outside of care to fix problem: reattach cable, replace latch, replace cable, there may be some other alternatives depending on specific situation.
