I saw your post regarding how to open the trunk of a 97 Jag XJ6. Unfortunately the black key is in the trunk, and we only have the valet key which does not open the trunk. We have a key fob which opens...


Having never had this problem with an XJ6 I can only suggest that you carefully see if you can remove the rear centre armrest back panel (as damage here can be minimised) and gain access to the boot sufficient enough to perhaps hook the keys out ? Sorry cannot be of more help here

Hi how can i release the valet on a 1995 xj6 jag, cause i cant open my trunk


The valet button is in the center console. You can also use the manual key (the black one) in the back key holder (located in the XJ6 label on the trunk), that will overide the electrical lock and you can open manually.

Good luck!

JAGUAR XJ6 95 TRUNK WONT OPEN BATTERY IS FINE I TRIED WITH THE KEY THE BUTTON IN THE TRUNK AND THE BUTTON IN THE DASHBOARD AND NON OF THEM WORK


My suggestion would be to open your glove compartment and pushing the valet button to release the locking mechanism for your trunk which would cause everything else not to work.

I need to find the release for the trunk on a 1997 xj6. My dad wanted to find out what would happen if he pressed the valet button in the car, turns out it locks the boot! As he is a very intelligent being...


The black headed key (or integrated key) or the key transmitter should open the 'boot' after the valet button has been pressed, according to the manual. If the transmitter is pressed 15x (or more) within 20 seconds, it activates a 20 second waiting period before it will work, but the black headed (or integrated) key should still work. Please don't say the transmitter and the black key are in the boot! Let me know if you get in!

Have 1996 xj6 valet was pushed master key dont work in trunk how do i open trunk?


Had similar problem when keys accidently locked in trunk.Solved by drilling 1 inch circular cutout (series of small drill holes) behind number plate above lock. Lock operating bar then visible. Lock released using long nosed plyers. Note.. release button on lid failed to operate as by coincidence wiring loom failed where it passes trunk hinge ! Hole re-sealed and number plate replaced. I had vallet key but this dosnt open trunk. Hope this helps Pete

Door locks, and trunk will not work.


Is the key you are using green? If so, it is the Valet Key and it will only lock the door - it will not work on the glove box or the trunk.

I have a 95 Jag xj6 and my trunk release button nor the key will open the trunk. I thought the valet switch in the arm rest had been activated but the main key wont deactivate it. Any suggestions or is...


We're working on our friends 95 Jag. He took it to a local shop and the gomer calling himself a mechanic started pushing buttons on the console. He pushed the top down button while the top was still connected. The rear windows thought the top was supposed to go down so they started rolling down. They stopped them about halfway down, but couldn't get them back up. But that isn't the problem. Now, we can't get the trunk open. The problem? The trunk is not the original. It came from a junkyard and he has never had a key. So the remote only works on the doors. How in the world do we get that trunk open. Our only thought is to go through the back seat, and that looks like way too much work. Any ideas?
