2001 xj8 stays running after turning the ignition off. The dash gauges stay on after removing the keys

Hello Eric Lovins,

Your ignition switch goes directly to your BODY module and the engine control module... (with only a RELAY) in the mix...
for "starting purposes only"

My experience with Jaguars (magnificent vehicles) has
taught me to FIRST SUSPECT RELAYS... (easy access the switches (really hard to reach... If you plan on keeping the car
(mine being the last V12 Convertible they built)... I keep spare relays... HOWEVER...

Control of the running (or not running) seems to be the
Ignition control directly from the steering column to the BCM.

Logically your Ignition switch (highly used & difficult to get to) should be most suspect... (there are also high risk of triggering logic circuits with RESULTING AIR BAG DEPLOYMENT (EXPLOSIVE FORCE))... Use of care and full knowledge
is advised here...!!

I have the Factory Service Manuals for MY '95 XJS...
They are impressively expensive... but WERE cheaper
(NEW, PAPER) than a single "visit" to one of my
neighborhood JAGUAR DEALERS...
(assuming all thing go well... they usually don't).

While the Factory Service Manuals are collectors items themselves you might remain in convinced of their inherent value... you can use the FREE data base at BBB Industries
website... (registration required)

(also see Jag Lovers site below (very bottom)).

I found no Technical Service Bulletins on your ignition lock
(a good thing)...
but in my car it would be very simple to eliminate DOWNSTREAM electronics... simply by removing the wire from the ignition (the engine should stop)

You can then confidently pursue that wire into your ignition lock...

My vintage vehicle has no PATS (passive anti-theft system) keys... but I will assure your life will be happier if you make SURE you have all the required keys & fobs BEFORE you get into the lock.

How do you open trunk if battery is dead

Use your ignition key to unlock the boot (trunk) by inserting it into a small keyhole under the chrome lift on trunk lid. It took me a while to figure it out when I first purchased my jag.

Trunk is not original. It came from the junkyard and we have no key. How do we open the trunk on a 95 Jag convertible?

If there is no remote opener, or lever to pull, you're going to have to drill out the lock, and change it t one that has a key. Or, if you know where the trunk came from, you could maybe get a key from the junkyard.
The only other option is get the serial number off the donor car, and have a key made.
If you drill the lock out , use about a half inch bit, and drill till it kinda falls apart. You should see a little flat rod in there. If you are able to turn the rod with a pair of pliers, good. If the rod falls out, put a screwdriver in the slot where the rod was, and turn the lock.

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 keys are locked in trunck

get a spare key to open the trunk, or if there is a button for opening the trunk, push it. Sometimes this won't work, though, because some buttons in Cadillacs only work with the ignition on or 15 min. after the ignition was turned off and the doors are not opened.

1994 jag xjs bad fuel pump, the tank is behind the back seat, I've removed the plate behind the tank in the trunk and can't get the tank to budge, are there bolts that hold this in that I can't see?

There are 2 lines coming from the back bottom of the tank. They are metal shielded lines and don't give much. They are up behind the differential. The lines are held on by two clips. You don't have to remove them, just turn. It takes a little strength to get the lines off but they will break loose. They are just push lines. Once you get them off, the tank will come right out. I just did it a week ago.
