Question about 2000 Jaguar Vanden Plas

1 Answer

I believe the trunk or luggage compartment light switch on my 2000 Jaguar VDP is broken. I've replaced the bulbs even though the old ones do not appear to have been burned out. No fuses appear to have blown. That pretty much leaves the switch but I cannot seem to locate it. Can you help?

Luggage LIghts do not light up when opening trunk


The Microswitch is actually attached to the Latch mechanism But I would suggest that you mark the position of the latch BEFORE removing the bolts as there is quite a range of adjustment available when the bolts are loosened!

Luggage compartment lights


Should be in the trunk fuse box, more more likely its the harness that feeds the lights, when the trunk is open you need to check and make sure there is power to the lights.

Hey John,

This is very common, because your battery is dead your remote isnt going to work. So what you have to do is look by the license plate light bulbs, their is a key hole wear you can insert you key and open the trunk to charge/ or jump start your battery
