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

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
