Not the best solution, but a workaround. Turn the engine on, run it for about a minute and then shut it off. This will "reset" the trunk.

Sounds like you may have anouther problem, the horn should only 'peep' if you have left something open, like the boot (trunk), a rear door etc. In normal circustances the horn should not sound.

Jaguar 2003 x-type. Trunk will not open with key. THERE IS NOT APLACE TO MANUALLY USE KEY FOR OPENING TRUNK.

You will need to locate IP5 pin 16 on the General Electronic Control Module
that sits RH side behind your instrument panel (UK Car) .
IP5 is the large brown 23 way connector that goes into the module.
Take this pin to ground then your boot will pop open.

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.

Can not open trunk, Jaguar s-type

Look under the "U" in "Jaguar" on the chrome strip on the trunk. You'll find a key slot where you can insert your ignition key. You may have to remove the license tag frame (if you have one) to get the key into the slot.
