My 1996 jaguar vanden plas trunk switch on the driver side of the car doesnt work and my key doesnt work. How do i hotwire the trunk to make it open?


check fuses and relays --check power to switch and test switch if switch bad replace and if need access now can jump switch to release actuator --but if key doesnt work either the problem sounds like a damaged latch or debris stuck in latch lock --if key turns try pushing down and up on trunk if latch is not cooperating then will need to remove rear seat

2004 Jaguar, Vaden Plaus,car just quit running going down the road. Had to have it towed home Won't start,turns over, just won't start,says Restricted Performance.


Sounds like it is some type of 'limp home' mode.
It could be anything. It might be as simple as a bad Fuel Pump Relay. When you turn the Key to the ON position (not Start) can you hear a little buzz for about 1 second? That would be your fuel pump running. You need to see if the engine is getting gas and spark.

Heavy gas smell on 2000 jaguar vanden plas


check for a bad fuel filter or a leaking rubber line after the fuel pump . To dump that much fuel so quickly ,the fuel pump is pumping to a broken /split hose or steel line.

Transmission fault yellow warning light on 2001 Jaguar Vanden Plas


get a rebuilt or used transmission. Jaguar says you don't have to change trans fluid because it should last the "life of the trans" which means it will die just like everything else. Fluid change will do no good. I just went thru this.

How do i disable valet mode om a 98 jaguar vanden plas?


Try inserting the key into the drivers door lock and try centrally locking and unlocking all the doors a few times. If this does not reset the valet function try using the key in the drivers door lock and pressing the fob at the same time as locking and unlocking the doors. Even with valet mode engaged you should be able to access the trunk by physically inserting the key into the trunk lock.

The Jaguar chrome strip is magnetic. Simply lift one corner with a sharp object (e.g. wood chisel) and pull it up carefully. This will reveal several Torque screws. Undo the Torque screws and you will be able to complete the job. Good luck.

I've had the same problem on my 2001. It turned out to be the battery. Apparently the voltage had dropped to the point that the computer began to malfunction. I'd first go to a battery shop and have it checked under load before looking for other solutions.
