SOURCE: manual trunk release
There are 2 ways to do this. Remove the right rear seat cushion, and seatback. You will find a lever, that is the manual release for the trunk. If this is broken, use a large suction cup, and remove the taillights. This will provide access to the main battery, and start battery. Using an AGM approved charger, charge the main battery(Left-side-AGM) and start battery (Right-side-regular)

I had the same issue today with a 2004 jag.
1. Once I had the locksmith open the door. We proceeded to remove the back seat. Not an easy task, but this is the only way.
A. remove the plastic kick plate on floor leading to back seat. This will allow you to pull out the padded liner that is not part of the seat but cushions each side. It will not completely come out, but expose a star nut that must be turned loose with six more later on.
b. The front of the back seat is held down by two copper u shaped wires, that must be popped up and out of a white piece of plastic, Once this is done you can lift up the seat portion and remove it from the car. You will now see six star bolts that must be removed. After you take them out the round bar holding the upper portion of the seat can be removed or popped out enough so that you can seperate or spread the back portion of the seat from each other in sections. Once this is done you will be able to pull out a section far enough out to gain access to the trunk.
It takes about 15 minutes once you understand what your doing, and about an hour if you have never done it. The trick is allowing the lock smith to open the car. The alarm will sound off for about 2 minutes then stop. Unless you have the rear center console removalbe panel and arm rest, then the only course is exactly what I did, removing the back seat. They charged me 150.00 dollars with me doing most of the work. Not much I could say, as I was the *** that locked my keys in the trunk. Best bet for a Jag is to carry another key with electronic trunk opener mounted underneath the car in a key lock box. Well worth the investment, as most people end up getting their car towed.
It is poor feature on a Jag that the only way you can get in a locked trunk is through the back seat, but this is how it is done.
Believe me, it is the only way other than having it towed to the Jag dealer so he can figure out. Thier is a way to jump a wire under the passenger side dash, but you may end up shorting out the whole electrical system, I dont think it is worth the risk, unless the person doing it, has previous experince. Hope this helps, and happy tearing out your back seat. You can do it, the first time is always a little tough.

First, take off the license plate.
Since the hatch wouldn't open, I started from the inside and took down the top trim piece. After that the two side pieces come down, then the main trim piece which covers the bulk of the door comes out. These are all popped in with the white tabs.
There are 3 access hole covers to pop out (don't forget to install them back in when done) and through the left hole you can see the mechanism to unlatch, press it down with a screwdriver and open the door. If anytime you close the door you will have to do this to unlatch, up until you disconnect the cable and pull out the handle, then you have to locate the cable and pull that directly.
Behind the large trim piece you will find a metal access cover, remove the 7 or 8 10mm bolts holding that on and pop the 3 white tabs and let it hang off to the side. Disconnect the cable from the handle assembly by reaching in from the right hand side and popping of the cable from the handle assembly.
From the left and right access holes, locate the two 10mm nuts which hold the license plate assembly to the door and remove them. Then there are 4 plastic tabs that come in from the outside that hold the license plate assembly on in each corner, try and locate those and using some pliers squeeze them together and push it through. Next locate the license plate lamps wire connector and release that from the left side, it’s the simple push in and pull out square white connector.
After these are out, put back in 1 or 2 bolts into the large metal access cover so the hatch can be lowered (don’t close it).
Here is where I had fun, begin to pop out the assembly that it was bolted to. I ended up breaking 3 of the 4 plastic tabs in each corner because I did not use pliers from the other side to pull them out, however it remained somewhat useable (hindsight 20/20).
Now the license plate assembly can be taken to a bench to replace the handle assembly (Toyota doesn't sell just the handle, it is a small assembly). Two screws out and the assembly is replaced.
Before pressing the license plate assembly back onto the truck, make certain all the plastic tabs are in the assembly and not in the truck. Reverse the process to re-install.
