SOURCE: my trunk on my xj6 wont open at all.

The last Jaguar on which I corrected this problem had a nut loosen on the lock mechanism. I took out the rear seat and then the parcel shelf covering and then cut an access hole into the trunk.
That was a 1987 XJ6. I am not certain that you have similar access due to fuel tank location. If you take this on, be aware of that possibility.

SOURCE: I can nit open my trunk on my 1996 jAGUAR XJ6.

ok, if the key won't open this then the lock is jammed and if you don't want to damage anything, I know I wouldn't, I would take it to a mechanic. The jammed may have been what killed your battery if the valet trunk open was not working it may have been shorted out. There is a way to jump vehicles with the battery in the trunk like that but I am not familiar with it and if the buttin doesn't work to release the trunk it would do you no good anyway. most likely you are looking at replacing teh truck locking mechanism.

mine sometime does the same thing. try flipping your switch then pressing the button (this works for mine when it won't open with the key or just by pressing the button alone)

I have 1997 Jaguar XJR months back i parked valet, so i used the valet button inside the center console. since then i can not open my trunk with the key or the dash button. now my battery is dead PLEASE...


You have to reconfigure your fob via your valet button, this will enable the bootlock to recognise the singnal from dash button. I know your battery is dead, start it with a booster or jump leads, take for a good run and then when you think your battery has enough juice try to reconfigure. hope this helps, Jonjo.

JAGUAR XJ6 95 TRUNK WONT OPEN BATTERY IS FINE I TRIED WITH THE KEY THE BUTTON IN THE TRUNK AND THE BUTTON IN THE DASHBOARD AND NON OF THEM WORK


My suggestion would be to open your glove compartment and pushing the valet button to release the locking mechanism for your trunk which would cause everything else not to work.

I need to find the release for the trunk on a 1997 xj6. My dad wanted to find out what would happen if he pressed the valet button in the car, turns out it locks the boot! As he is a very intelligent being...


The black headed key (or integrated key) or the key transmitter should open the 'boot' after the valet button has been pressed, according to the manual. If the transmitter is pressed 15x (or more) within 20 seconds, it activates a 20 second waiting period before it will work, but the black headed (or integrated) key should still work. Please don't say the transmitter and the black key are in the boot! Let me know if you get in!
