93 jaguar keys stolen and batteries dead . How do i get the trunk to open


If its just a matter of getting the trunk open, and aren't planning to keep the car, I would either jump the car to another running car long enough to open the trunk or pull a good battery out of another vehicle and hook it up long enough to open the trunk. you shouldn't have to even start it just get power long enough to have the truck release work. You might first check and see if there is a release on the back seat to bring one side down and access the trunk from there.

Have an auto electrician use a jumper to open the trunk. Then replace the failed battery. IF you get the old battery load tested and it proves faulty the auto electrician will be able to install a new battery for you at the same time.

Battery dead no trunk access 2001 Lincoln LS how to jump start car


locate your starter motor.There you will find a thick single core cable (usually bolted onto solenoid).Get a fully charged battery and jumper leads.Connect negative lead to ground(any unpainted metal surface on chasis) or engine.Connect the positive clip to the stud described earlier.If you connect the other ends to the booster battery you should get enough power to open the trunk and then jump start the dead battery normally.If there seems to be no power in the circuits use the battery of a car with its engine running as a booster instead of a standalone battery.

My jaguar is dead I can't open my trunk to charge


I am not familiar with the Jag, however. If there is no manual trunk release or no key operated release mechanism, all may not be lost. Auto parts stores and some department stores sell a temporary power supply that operates on a small battery and plugs into your cigarett lighter. These are used to retain computer and radio settings when it is neccessary to disconnect the vehicles primary battery. This might offer enough voltage to open the trunk and allow access to the primary battery. Good Luck Vern

Battery just went dead, i can't open the trunk to jump start the battery. how can i open the trunk w/ a dead battery?


If you can open the hood, you can jump start the car at the alternator. Put the positive jumper cable on the large + wire on the alternator, and attach the negative - to any bracket or to the engine block and this will start your car, or open the trunk.

1999 Jaguar XJR - Dead battery and can't get in locked trunk


It takes a deal of time and patience to charge via the cigarette lighter socket though there should soon have been enough power to open the boot.

It should be possible to access the end of the main battery lead in the engine compartment in order to jump start the engine, provide power to open the boot or to charge the battery, if the battery is healthy enough to accept a charge. Some cars with a remote battery provide terminals for the purpose though I don't know whether the Jag does. If it doesn't the main battery cable terminates at the starter motor.
