This is an electrical part and most probably needs to be replaced , but if it does not go into the lock it self ( Lock is closed while boot is open ) , you need to open manually with a screw driver and then close your boot

Door locks on 2005 Jag xk8 not working. Cant close doors


It could need fault codes erasing and defaults restoring with diagnostic equipment but the symptom you describe could equally be caused by the internal switch in one of the door catches that tells the brain the doors are closed.
If the brain doesn't receive a door closed signal from each door and the boot lid it will not allow the central door locking to operate.

I suggest you check the owner's handbook for user information and then reassure yourself all the doors are closing and correctly adjusted.
This is something freezing weather can affect.

I keep getting the boot open alarm but I do not know what it is or how to close it


your "boot" is your luggage compartment or trunk. if it is closed and is still regsitering that it is open then the mechanism needs to be replaced. the switch is in the trunk latch assembly. cheers

Convertible top does not operate; information: "close luggage compartment" while it is obviously closed. Attempt to insert an extra spacer between the trunk lid hook and the switch lever does not help. EOS...


the micro switch inside the trunk latch is probably faulty.try manually closing the latch on the trunk with a screw driver[dont hurt yourself] and see if the information display recognises the trunk is closed.also does the boot light go off?if not replace the boot lock...good luck

Jaguar XK8 PROBLEM BOOT WON'T CLOSE


In the trunk on the right side behind the carpet is the hyrdaulic unit. There is a T fitting on it. Turn the T fitting counterclockwise to release pressure. Tighten it back up and try the top again. I have had this work for me several times.

2001 vw cabrio convertible top won't go up or down


Am I correct in assuming that you have an electric roof? I recently saw in my manual that there is a hydraulic lift that you can access from the trunk of the car. It looks like it is on the left side wall close to the opening. The following is taken directly from the manual:
"If the power system is not operating properly you can still close the roof by hand. 1. Remove protective cover and open luggage compartment lid. 2. Turn screw on hydraulic pump counterclockwise until it stops. 3. Close the luggage compartment lid. 4. Swing the top forward by grabbing it with both hands, lift and push it forward. 5. Lock roof in place. 6. Turn the screw on hydraulic pump clockwise until it stops. Use the same procedure in reverse order to open the power roof manually."

Luggage compartment lights


Should be in the trunk fuse box, more more likely its the harness that feeds the lights, when the trunk is open you need to check and make sure there is power to the lights.
