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.

I have 1997 Jaguar XJR months back i parked valet, so i used the valet button inside the center console. since then i can not open my trunk with the key or the dash button. now my battery is dead PLEASE...


You have to reconfigure your fob via your valet button, this will enable the bootlock to recognise the singnal from dash button. I know your battery is dead, start it with a booster or jump leads, take for a good run and then when you think your battery has enough juice try to reconfigure. hope this helps, Jonjo.

I can nit open my trunk on my 1996 jAGUAR XJ6.


ok, if the key won't open this then the lock is jammed and if you don't want to damage anything, I know I wouldn't, I would take it to a mechanic. The jammed may have been what killed your battery if the valet trunk open was not working it may have been shorted out. There is a way to jump vehicles with the battery in the trunk like that but I am not familiar with it and if the buttin doesn't work to release the trunk it would do you no good anyway. most likely you are looking at replacing teh truck locking mechanism.
