    There is no release lever for the XK8. use the black ignition key and insert it in the small hole on the right side of the "X" on the trunk emblem XK8

    It may be gummed up if never used, so wiggle the key in. The green key will NOT work.

Battery dead. how can I get trunk open.


You can't unless it has a key hole. If you put jump leads on the battery or connect a battery charger it will open straight away.

2006 cadillac dts has dead battery. cant open doors or hood


The driver's door should open with the key. Then you'll have to access the trunk through the backseat.

There is an emergency trunk release located inside the trunk. To gain access, there is a pass-through in the rear seat. Put the rear armrest down, open the pass-through, and move the release up with your fingers. The release is glow-in-the-dark. So you should have no trouble finding it using a flashlight.

Dead battery located in trunk,remote won't open trunk,how to manually open trunk


I am not a Jaguar guy, but usually when the battery is in the trunk, there is a connection under the hood where you can attach jumper cables. Power the car from there with a donor battery to make the trunk release work.
Failing that, try one of those trickle chargers that works through the lighter outlet in the car.

My battery is dead and i do not have a trunk key to open it to work on the battery not sure how to get to the battery


Buy or build a cigarette lighter plug to jumper cable adapter. It won't jump your car, but you will get enough juice to operate the trunk release.

My mercedes clk battery dead i cant open trunk


On the side of the smart key there is a mechanical key that slides out of one of the sides-There should be a little release lever retaining the mechanical key. It can be inserted into the trunk lock and turned to open the trunk. There are several other positions the key can be turned to place the trunk lock actuation in different modes- it should be in your owner's manual Hopefully I have been helpful
