Hi ,i have s type jaguar. my battery gone flat and i cannot openthe booth at the back ,manualy or by electric. how to open the booth please

You can use one of the plugs that go into the power point/cigarette lighter. Cut the end off add wire to reach a good 12 volt battery. Plug it in. This should give you power to open the boot with the switch.

My batter has went flat now my doors will not lock and can open the boot

Hi Kerry, 2 reasons your battery (flat) isn't charging, You have a faulty battery or you have a faulty alternator... If you can drive your car for at least ten minutes after you jump start your flat battery but can't start it after you turned the motor off then it's the battery, If you jump start your flat battery and the motor dies when you try driving then it's the alternator.... You can get a mechanic or an auto electrician to test both usually Free of charge if you can get it there....CHEERS..

Cannot get into car battery flat

get a jumper box and put one terminal to ground and the other to a main power wire using a jumper wire-(hot wire it) pick any always hot type of circuit like the alternator charge out wire if you can reach it-or tap into the starter motor main battery connection with a pick and then send power into it from a remote jump start box or jumper cables-all you need is enough power to unlock the car-not start it

Use your ignition key in the keyhole under the lip of the boot lid by the number plate or hidden under the boot chrome trim, all these cars have an overide to the electric boot opener its either a key at the boot or sometimes a cable pull inside the cabin or by the rear seat.
good luck - hopes this helps.

X type with flat battery

Get into the engine bay first and recharge, or fit a new battery. You could put a set of jump leads on as a temp measure to open the boot latch.
See re battery replacement. An I have written up a tip sheet on here re Jump starting. Hope this helps.

Flat battery, cant open boot of merc s320

The positive terminal on what?, on the battery it is marked with a big + and the one with the - goes down to the car bodywork

Why not get a buddy to connect a set of jump leads onto your battery which will give you enough power to open the boot ?

Flat battery

No, you dont need to break windows. use the mechanical key that is slotted in the end of the normal electronic gizmo key to open the drivers door. It doesn't work on the boot lid even though it should so you need to energise the electric boot release from unde rthe bonnet as described elsewhere in this solution.
