Either replace battery or hook up jumper cables, as if attempting to jump start vehicle, then try trunk release button.

    The battery is in the trunk on an xj6, so that would be very difficult to do.

    Thank you very much. I found the terminal and was able to jumpstart the trunk release. Shame on Jaguar for not having a manual trunk release.

How do i release open the trunk if the battery is dead and I don't hav the key?


If your battery is dead, and you don't have the key, you are not gonna get the trunk open. However, if the car is unlocked, and you have another vehicle to power the car by jumper cables, you may be able to use the button inside to open the trunk. Otherwise, you'll need to install a new battery.

My mercedes clk battery dead i cant open trunk


On the side of the smart key there is a mechanical key that slides out of one of the sides-There should be a little release lever retaining the mechanical key. It can be inserted into the trunk lock and turned to open the trunk. There are several other positions the key can be turned to place the trunk lock actuation in different modes- it should be in your owner's manual Hopefully I have been helpful
