Question about Jaguar Xj Series
It's Sunday (no way to call Jag service) and I have a dead battery. To make things worse, my car is blocking my husband's, so we're stuck at home. The car was locked and I was able to get in to it with a key. The car still has a little power (dash lights come on) but the 'open trunk' button does not operate. AAA came out and tried to give the car a charge through the cigarette lighter, but that didn't work. Is there anything else I can do?
It takes a deal of time and patience to charge via the cigarette lighter socket though there should soon have been enough power to open the boot.
It should be possible to access the end of the main battery lead in the engine compartment in order to jump start the engine, provide power to open the boot or to charge the battery, if the battery is healthy enough to accept a charge. Some cars with a remote battery provide terminals for the purpose though I don't know whether the Jag does. If it doesn't the main battery cable terminates at the starter motor.

SOURCE: 01' Jaguar XJR Starter location?
If you get just a click you should first check battery charge and all battery connections. The click is probably the solenoid kicking in but without enough battery to turn over the engine.

First check your accessory fuses under the dash. You may have a blown fuse. If the fuses are fine, and you have a voltage meter, check to see if you have power to the lighter. You may have a problem with the wiring to the lighter.

First, check your fuse panel and see if you have a blown fuse. Replacing it will resolve the issue.
If not, fold down back seat and pull the emergency cable located near the key hole.

Is it possible to open the hood?
If so, you should be able to attach jumper cables (Alternator or Relay?) to get the switches powered up. I'm assuming the trunk latch is electrical.
