Question about 1999 Jaguar XK8
Have cable on right from a Jeep and dome lights come on when door is open
Sounds like your starter may be shorted out. That is A LOT of juice flowing when a jump occurs, so most any engine will at least turn over. Load test the starter. Load test the alternator. Perhaps one of those is the culprit.
Let us know what you find.

Yes the key needs to be reprogramed to the car. Unfortunately that will have to be done by the dealer. Make sure that you have plenty of proof that you are the owner. They will reprogram it but you will not take posession of the car until you prove it is yours.

Look under the boot handle near the number plate light and you'll see a hole where you can use your key to open the boot.

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.

Thank you so much for your follow up about the loose connection under the glove box..
I had exactly the same problem and the local ford dealer could not fix it. Was going to take it to the Jag dealer but did a search and your question and follow-up saved me a trip and $
