SOURCE: cant get my 99 xj8 out of valet mode, and my trunk will not open.

There are Valet keys (often with a green knob) that will
only unlock the front doors and the ignition but not the
glove box nor boot/trunk.

When either the front door locks or the console button is
pressed, all the doors should lock. Likewise, when either
front door is unlocked, all the doors fuel filler lid and if
selected, the boot will also unlock.

Boot lock has three positions. Unlocked to the left,
automatic with the doors in the center, always locked to the
right. Simply remove the key in what ever position you desire.

The locks can get confused and not work correctly. Simply
sit in the car and manually lock all the doors. That will
usually get the locking module sane again.

Your thermostat may need replacement - they need changing every 2 years. Here is a link http://www.jagservice.net/jaguar_v8_secondary_tensioners.htm

SOURCE: My trunk will not open when I push the badge button!

if i'm not mistaken... i believe there is a disable switch located around the lock mechanism when you have the boot open... it might have accidentally gotten bumped

How do I access trunk entry into my 2004 Jaguar xj8 when now it has gone into valet lockout?


I believe that this is to protect valuables left in the boot when parking the vehicle. I read here that there is access some where in/ near the glove box but I cannot remember exactly what it was . Surf the net under Jaguar valet problems and you may get the answer.

Jaguar xj8 boot wont open


Just bought my 98 a week ago....from what I can figure out....the valet mode disables the inside button....until the trunk is opened by the key. From what I understand also....there is a valet key....and an owner key. (I saw the differences online this week) which also ties in with valet mode.

I have a couple of different problems with 99 jag XJ8


disconnect the new battery for about 10 minutes, then reconnect, then try the valet mode switch again, see if the other lights come on again, and the shaking could be a tire depending on how long it sat in one position, but most likely is warped brake rotors
