SOURCE: my jaguar x-type 04, remote lock does not work,

Hi,

I have a similar problem in my x type. Although if I press unlock button on the key first and then use the metalic key to unlock it dissables the alarm.

Also according to the manual if you unlock by the metalic key the car starts a beeping sound its I think 15-20 second timer within which you should put the key and start the ignition (don't need to start the engin) this will dissarm the alarm if not the alarm will go off in 15-20 second.

Hope this information is of any use, am trying to get hold of Jaguar dealers to fix this issue. If you come accross any solution please do let me know too

SOURCE: 2003 S TYPE JAGUAR. DON'T DRIVE OFTEN BATTERY

You must charge the battery or you can use jumper cables from another battery to your battery to activate the electric trunk release, just be sure you hook up the jumper cables correctly ( cable to + on the battery and black to _ terminal of battery)and wear safety glasses when hooking up cables this should release the trunk. Also as a precaution always hook up + or red jumper cables wires first to prevent a arcing spark which is not terribly dangerous but this order in which to connect jumper cables is recommended.

How to pop hood from outside of 2004 chevy trailblazer


You cannot release the bonnet from the outside.

In any case the key should open the driver's door manually. You will need to turn it either once or twice in succession. If it will not open then pull on the handle and turn the key in the lock at the same time.

How to open doors on 2000chevy malibu battery dead?


The outside door locks/trunk lock will most likely not work due to the key not being able to be inserted/turned in the lock cylinder due to lack of use. Spray WD40 into door lock cylinder using supplied straw and insert key until it goes all the way in using sawing motion. If lock cylinder still will not turn continue sawing motion with key while holding gentle turning pressure on the key. This will usually free up any sticky/seized lock cylinder wafers and allow the cylinder to turn

Do you have the original key for this vehicle. If so you can unlock the door with this key. Even if the battery is flat. Allowing you to access the bonnet release catch.

Bonnet will not open with key


Not sure if the solution can be applied to 2006 focus, I have an European Mk2 Focus which also having the same problem. Here is what you can try.

To Open:
1. Jack up the car on the lifter.
2. Open bottom engine cover.
3. Loosen two (10mm) screws which secure the bonnet lock assembly. The screws located between air manifold and radiator.
4. Once the screws released, disconnect the alarm cable/socket connected to the lock assembly.
5. Try pull open the bonnet, it may require little force to pull the bonnet open due to a little white plastic link (~1" long, plus (+)shaped) is still connected between the lock assy. and cable assy. Failure to release bonnet lock is only caused by this plastic link!
6. Once the bonnet opened, the cable assy can be detached by pulling it from engine side out. Inspect the plastic link if it worn out.

To Install:
1. Attach lock and cable assy. Ensure the plastic link is properly inserted in its place between lock and cable assy. Test the mechanism with the car key.
2. Insert the whole assembly from engine side out.
3. Secure with two 10mm screws, reconnect alarm cable.
4. Reinstall bottom engine cover.

Hope this help. Sorry for my English.

Locked out of car


I took my 99 Laguna to my local mechanic with a stuck bonnet. He pulled the lever from inside and told me to press down on the bonnet at the same time then open the bonnet as normal with the outside catch. It worked ok. After doing it oil the catch mechanism and it now works ok-but best to keep trying it to stop it seizing again.
