Hi There
The release for the seats is in the boot/trunk.

There is an unlock by key facility.

It is found up under the chrome boot trim towards the left of the registration plate. your ignition key will operate it,
Good luck.

I locked both keys in my trunck any idea how i can get them out ?

Is you car unlocked ... if it is you may be able to go through the back seat. If you remove the bottom part of the seat it should expose bolts to the back rest section of the seat. Once that is off there may be a divider of cardboard .... look for fasteners and remove that. Get your keys and put it all back together. Does the car have a trunk release in the glove compartment or other location? If the car is locked then you may have to call a locksmith.

How can i get a X Type Jaguar booth to open when the lock thats faulted?

If pushing the button will not open the trunk (boot), you will need to remove the rear seats to access the trunk compartment. Pull the bottom seat off by simply prying it. The fold down back rests are locked from the trunk on top so you will have to unscrew the retaining bolts from the bottom of the back rest to flip the seats up. Once inside, you will find a yellow pull handle that manually opens the trunk where the striker is. Pull it and try to have the replacement peice ready so you don't have to go thru that again.

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.

2004 jaguar x type front seats and mirrors quit working.

I have not found a solution to the problem but I don't want to have to pay some one over the internet to tell me how to plug a wire in. If I am going to do that I may as well take it back to the dealership.

Thanks anyway

I have a corolla 2003 and I had the same problem. I turned the key to the left and the lock turned left, engaging the valet parking mechanism. I could not turn the key to the right and could not get access to the trunk because the lever next to the driver seat was disengaged.
The way I solved this problem is as follow:on the back driver seat I pulled the back seat forward to leave an opening and snick my arm in the trunck. Then I grabbed the cable used to latch the seat and I pulled forward, i.e. toward the front of the car. The cable is connectred to the trunck so that it can be disconnected easily if pulled towards the front. If you pull towards the back it will remain attached to the trunck. So grab the cable an pull towards the front, and it will release itself. Since the cable is flexible, you can pull it out of the trunk from the same the opening you put your arm, and then disenagage the driver back seat. Fold forward the back seat and get into the trunk and use the lever in the latch of the trunck to open it. The turnk will open.

If the lock does not turn, you need to disconnect the lock from the mechanism, so that the driver seat lever can start working again. To do this, and with the trunk open, remove the cover holded by nine plastic pins. Do not break the pins. After removing the cover, you will see the lock holded by two nuts. Remove the nuts with a rachet. The lock will be loose, and disconnect the lever that connects the lock to the latch. At this point the driver seat lever will start working again. Close the trunk and verify that the driver seat lever opens the trunk. Now you can open and close the trunk , and have time to call the dealer for a new lock.
Good luck.
