Try some wd-40 spray this all around the boot lock and on the underside of the bootlid onto the mechanism, sometimes they stick and just need lubeing up. dont be shy with the wd-40 spray all over and into the lock. then try lock and unlock with the key and with the remote fob keep repeating until it free's off. this most often works and wont cost you anything so worth a go.

It's very common in cold weather, Hope this helps

The 2005 Jag x will not release the trunk lock. If there I way to do that or get into the trunk?

Jaguar in their wisdom did not put an internal release for the Boot (Trunk) inside the car.

assuming the lock system is working :-

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 ECM module.
Take this pin to ground then your boot will pop open.
