The best way is through the cigarette lighter port (You will need to buy a jumper cable with cigarette lighter plugs on both ends)And just plug it into another cars lighter port or a jumper pack port.This will put the 12 volts through the car needed to open the truck.

I have a problem. I can not get into my Jaguar. The car would not start last time I got into it so I was going to charge the battery and try again but I can not get into the car.


As i understand your quest you cant open the doors? Can you open the back trunk? If so you can disassamble the back seat wall and enter this way to the car. Post back.

1998 Jaguar XJ8 had a short in the phone regulator and drained the battery.

My jaguar is dead I can't open my trunk to charge


I am not familiar with the Jag, however. If there is no manual trunk release or no key operated release mechanism, all may not be lost. Auto parts stores and some department stores sell a temporary power supply that operates on a small battery and plugs into your cigarett lighter. These are used to retain computer and radio settings when it is neccessary to disconnect the vehicles primary battery. This might offer enough voltage to open the trunk and allow access to the primary battery. Good Luck Vern

I can nit open my trunk on my 1996 jAGUAR XJ6.


ok, if the key won't open this then the lock is jammed and if you don't want to damage anything, I know I wouldn't, I would take it to a mechanic. The jammed may have been what killed your battery if the valet trunk open was not working it may have been shorted out. There is a way to jump vehicles with the battery in the trunk like that but I am not familiar with it and if the buttin doesn't work to release the trunk it would do you no good anyway. most likely you are looking at replacing teh truck locking mechanism.

1995 jaguar xj6 dead battery and can't open trunk. please help,


I simply opened the bonnet. Connected the battery charge positive to the + feed on the back of the alternator, connected the negative to the body. Turned it on, immediately the interior light comes on. Turn on the ignition press the cabin boot switch and it opens the boot. Charge battery as normal. Easy Peezy
