The 1994 xj6 sedan. The trunk should be opened by the key unless you have green keys only (valet keys).
If this is the case then open the hood and on the firewall there is a black plastic square box with a + sign on it, lift up the plastic cover, connect your jumper/charger on a low boost and this will give you enough power to push your remote trunk release switch.

On the back of the boot (trunk) lid is the XJ6 label, on the left side of the label, is a hole (looks like an emblem is missing) this is the key hole, to manually open the boot (trunk) and gain access to the battery.

What you can try, They have small battery chargers you can plug into the cigarate lighter and plug the other end into a wall plug and charge the battery that way, at least enought to open the trunk.

Have a1995 Vanderbilt Plas with dead battery and cant get in trunk...help!!!


Get another battery and make an adaptor cable with clamps for the battery plots at one end and a lighter jack (like the ones for phone car chargers) at the other. Now connect the cable accordingly (the minus plot on the battery to the side contact on the jack) and plug it in the lighter socket - now you will have enough power to open the trunk. Don't try to start the motor this way, it will fry the entire wiring harness.
