Question about 2007 Jaguar XJ Vanden Plas Sedan
I have a 2007 jag VDP. I left the key in the ignition but in the off position. Now the car is DEAD. I can't even open the trunk manually to access the battery and check it. everything is SHUT DOWN! What do you suggest I can do to access the battery before calling service? John
Take your liscence plate off the back of the car, there are two pieces of black tape that hide slots in the trunk, CAREFULLY put a screwdriver in the righthand slot, angled to the left, CAREFULLY feel around, carefully pushing, and you will find the release mechanism. Push to the left. TRUNK WILL OPEN!!! Take your time, keep your head, it's hard to find. Doesn't take much preassure, you can really feel it move in there. Feel around, push srtraight across to the left, alomst in the centre of the liscence plate. We love our Vanden plas too.
Best regards, Moyers

Try using your black key to open manually if this fails a common problem is a sticky lock due to moisture use lubrication in the lock and try again
