Question about 1993 Jaguar XJ6
1991 jaguar xj6 RADIO couldn't turn ON! The radio can't turn its power on by the switch, the security indicator keeps flashing all the time no matter the switch is "ON" or "OFF". the fuses are good and the relays that I COULD find (in the trunk for the antenna) are good as well. I have power GOING to the radio from all indications but it doesn't come on or flash CODE for me to enter, which I do have. Is there something I'm missing or is the radio just shot? Also I found no fuse on the radio it's self. Is there some SIMPLE fix out there? Or should I START SHOPPING?

Jump the battery and get your power back or get a starter pack that plugs into your cig lighter or your accessory power outlet.Good Luck!

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.

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)
