Question about 2005 Jaguar X-Type

Jaguar X Type estate rear hatch glass pops open on start up

When I start the car the glass pops open. After pressing the key fob twice to open all the doors this always happens. If I only unlock the drivers door it does not open on start up.

    Water penetrates the switch and unlocking then happens in response to anything being switched - start engine, switch some other circuit or just at random, until the lock operating circuit is de-energised with the automatic door locking feature or the doors are locked manually.

    When I use the remote start to start my 2008 Toyota Highlander Hybrid the glass door on the rear hatchback is unlocked. This began happening without us doing anything that I can think of.

2007 Yukon Denali XL lift glass is opening when I use the fob to open the rear hatch. This causes me to be unable to then close the rear hatch via the fob


This sounds like you have a grounding problem with your hatch circuits. This type of malfunction usually occurs when two systems (the hatch lift and the Lift glass release) are supposed to be sharing the same ground, but one of the systems has a bad connector or a broken wire. It then "activates" the other system by grounding THROUGH the system that it is supposed to be sharing ground with.

What I would do in your case is to take a HARD look at the wires that are in the conduit that runs between the lift gate and the body. These wires flex every time the lift gate is opened and closed, and are prone to breakage.

The way you describe it, it sounds like the lift gate motor is losing contact at about 1/3 to 1/2 of the way up, and that is when it grabs ground through the glass release solenoid.

Insert your key in the ignition and turn it on and off. Push the Arm button until you hear it lock. That does the trick for me always. I own a 02 jag myself.

Estate tailgate glass release button


I had the same problem with 2005 estate it used to open when starting the engine but does not unlock at all. The problem is the the sensor on the glass tailgate handle where the wiper arms is. It will cost around £70 from Jagaur themselves as I have just got one.
