Question about 1999 Jaguar XK8
Hi i just bought this car yesterday and the trunk did open the first time i opened it but now it is not opening with the remote or by the key can you please tell me how i can get it open or why it is doing this or can we open it by taking the back seat out if not i don't want to go thought all of that if i can not get in by removing the seat please can some one help me figure this out please
Wether it is an xk or xj, you cannot get to the trunk by removing the back seat, the gas tank is in the way.
Where the badge/decal is that says either XJ8 or XK8 there is a key hole in the badge so you can open the trunk.
The most common problem with the auto trunk opening is the actual harness in the right far corner of the trunk, the wires are not long enough and become stressed and eventually fracture causing an open circuit and no power to the remote opening.
Hope this helps
