    2003 Jaguar Vanden Plas luggage compartment will not open with key, transmitter (transmitter works all other functions), remote release swithch located on dash or badge button in center of lid. Valet Mode message continues to display regardless of procedures followed from owners manual. Is there a way to disconnect the ground in the engine compartment to cause a reset (battery is located within the luggage compartment)? Last to respond merely read from the owners manual-I've done that. Tks!

    2003 VDP luggage compartment wouldn't open via key, transmitter, remote switch on dash or badge button in middle of lid. Solution was to spray keyway with WD-40 & repeatedly incert key to free lock. Non-use of manual lock caused lock to seze. I was fearful of breaking key with too much pressure-needed pressure was reduced with lubricant use.

    Solution was supplied by service personnel over telephone @ AC Imports, Palatine, IL 847-358-5750.

    valet button is located on left of center on dash-not in glove box.

    See prior posting for actual solution.

Hi
Look under the "U" in "Jaguar" on the chrome strip on the trunk. You'll find a key slot where you can insert your ignition key. You may have to remove the license tag frame (if you have one) to get the key into the slot
OR
There should be a little jaguar insignia in the middle of the trunk lid . If the doors are unlocked just push it in it is a push button latch.
OR
Look in the center of the little Jaguar badge on the trunk lid.
The key fits in a slot there, to open the trunk .

hope the solutions will work
regards

2003 crown vic keyfob only works with ignition in run position .keyless entry and door locks work fine.even tried new keyfob.no change


The keyless entry system consists of the following components:
  • driver door module (DDM)
  • keyless entry transmitter
  • keyless entry keypad
The driver door module (DDM) receives inputs from the digital transmission range (TR) sensor, ignition switch, brake switch, window/door lock switches, lighting control module (LCM), keyless entry keypad switch and remote transmitter. The DDM outputs consists of keyless entry keypad switch illumination, power door lock actuators, luggage compartment release solenoid, horn relay, and lighting control module (LCM).
  • Battery junction box (BJB) fuses:
    • circuit breaker 7 (20A)
  • Central junction box (CJB)
    • 4 (10A)
    • 6 (15A)
    • 8 (25A)
    • 13 (5A)
  • Keyless entry keypad switch
  • Power door lock actuator
  • Luggage compartment release switch
  • Luggage compartment release solenoid
  • Connectors or connections
  • Wiring harness
  • If fuse's good have checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes .

B1751 Park/Neutral Switch Circuit Short to Battery DDM Go To Pinpoint Test K . B2425 Remote Keyless Entry Out of Synchronization DDM Go To Pinpoint Test L Need a professional grade scan tool to check fro these codes . Not a code reader for OBD2 codes .
  • The doors do not lock/unlock using the remote transmitter
  • Remote transmitter not programmed.
  • Remote transmitter.
  • DDM.
  • Go To Pinpoint Test F .

Did you program the new key fob ?

Remote Transmitter Programming NOTE: All remote transmitters are programmable and must be set at the same time.
  1. Turn the key from OFF to RUN four times within three seconds, ending in RUN. The locks will then lock and unlock, confirming program mode has been entered.
  1. Press any button on each remote transmitter to be programmed. The doors will lock and unlock to confirm that each remote transmitter has been programmed.
  1. If additonal remote transmitters are to be programmed, repeat Step 3 within 7.5 seconds or steps 2 and 3 if more than 7.5 seconds have elapsed.
  1. To exit program mode, turn the ignition to START or wait 7.5 seconds.
  1. NOTE: Failure to wait at least 20 seconds will cause programming failures. Wait at least 20 seconds after turning the key to OFF or after the last remote transmitter has been programmed to activate a remote transmitter for testing or verification

Where is the alarm system on 2005 lincoln ls?


Anti-Theft - Perimeter The anti-theft perimeter protection feature is controlled by the front electronic module (FEM), the rear electronic module (REM), and the driver door module (DDM). The alarm can be armed using:
  • the LOCK button in the remote keyless entry (RKE) transmitter to the DDM, which sends a message through the standard corporate protocol (SCP) communications network to the FEM.
  • the driver or passenger door lock switch if the corresponding door is open when LOCK is actuated.
  • the key in the driver door lock cylinder.
  • the RKE keypad by pressing 7/8 and 9/0 simultaneously.
The FEM and REM then monitor all features, which activate the alarm in the event of an unauthorized entry.
The luggage compartment lid lock cylinder does not disarm the vehicle's perimeter alarm. The luggage compartment alarm can be temporarily inhibited through the luggage compartment lid disarm switch, located in the luggage compartment lock cylinder or by opening the lugguage compartment with the RKE transmitter or the RKE keypad. Once the luggage compartment lid closes, the perimeter alarm system immediately starts monitoring the luggage compartment. The perimeter alarm can only be disarmed:
  • by unlocking the vehicle using the RKE transmitter.
  • by unlocking the vehicle using the driver door lock cylinder switch.
  • by cycling to RUN a valid programmed key in the ignition switch.
  • by entering the correct vehicle unlock code on the RKE keypad.
Additionally, an ignition switch tamper circuit and a signal hardwire line from the FEM to the REM are monitored.
If any of the above features receive any activation once the alarm is armed, the alarm activates the visual and audible alerts. ......

Locked out of trunk


If the electric release button and the key do not work, you may have to remove the back seat and try to gain entry that way.

Luggage compartment release button


I had a silimar problem an strange as it sounds replacing the rubber gasket around the top of the trunk fixed it. I had a leak and had to replace the gasket and also the remote wouldn't pop the truck. Jag dealer wanted to replace the entire trunk release mechanism (surprise, usual rip off) for several hundred dollars. I didn't do it and, good surprise, replacing the leaking gasket fixed the trunck release problem.
