Does it click at least? Most likely battery terminals are dirty and need to be cleaned and greased. Could be security system needs to be turned off at driver's door lock, left quarter turn, twice.

SOURCE: airbag

If the light is on in the dash then there is a problem. The Airbaf system does a self check everytime the car is started,. If there was no problem then the light wouldnt be on. See if you can have someone like a local autoparts store pull codes for you

SOURCE: 2003 Jaguar S-Type, programming a key fob

If its a new key fob the only way you can program it is this the factory scan tool, u'll have to take it to a dealership for them to do this and they will charge you .5 hrs for labor.only x-types can be programmed without the jaguar software. Im guessing it will cost you between 40 and 50 bucks to have them program it.

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.
