Question about Jaguar Xj Series

1 Answer

I have a Jaguar X300 3,2 '96 model with a jammed boot lock. On the instrumentpanel in the dashboard it indicates that the tailgate is open. I've tried to open with the button on the tailgate and on the dashboard without any luck. It seems like the problem has influenced the central locking somehow cause the doors won't lock when I set the gearhandle in "D" or using the key-fob. Locking the car from the front door works though. On top of this the key-lock on the boot is not working so I can't open the tail gate as it is now.

SOURCE: jaguar x300 central locking problem

If the locks are working whilst you are driving then more and likely it is the actual door lock assy that is bad. the solenoid go bad and can cause erratic operation. But unfortunately they are only available with the whole door lock/latch assy.
I would disconnect the drivers and see if the problem still exists.

How can I lock a renault megane 56 plate without the key card as it is not working


Locking/Unlocking the doors from the outside
This is done using the RENAULT Card; see the "RENAULT Card" information in Section 1.
In certain cases, the RENAULT card may not work:
- if the RENAULT card battery is weak, flat, etc.
- if equipment operating on the same frequency as the card (mobile phones, etc.) is used;
- vehicle located in a high electromagnetic radiation zone.
It is then possible:
- to use the key integrated into the card to unlock the front left-hand door;
- to lock each of the doors manually;
- to use the interior door locking/unlocking control (refer to the following pages).
Using the key integrated in the RENAULT card
Insert key 1 into the lock in the driver's door and lock or unlock. Locking the doors manually
Turn screw 2 with the door open (using the end of the key) and close the door.
This means that the doors are then locked from the outside.
The doors may then only be opened from the inside or by using the key in the front left-hand door. Interior locking/unlocking door control
Switch 3 controls the doors, boot and, depending on the vehicle, the fuel filler flap simultaneously.
If a door or the tailgate is open or not closed properly, the doors and tailgate lock/unlock quickly.
If you need to transport objects with the boot open, the other opening elements can still be locked: with the engine stopped, press switch 3 for more than five seconds to lock the other opening elements.
Locking the doors without the RENAULT card
For example, in the event of a discharged battery or the RENAULT card temporarily not working, etc.
With the engine switched off and an opening element (door or boot) open, press and hold switch 3 for more than five seconds.
When the door is closed, all the doors and the tailgate will be locked.
Unlocking the vehicle from the outside is only possible with the RENAULT card in the vehicle's access zone or using the key integrated in the RENAULT card.
Door and tailgate status indicator
With the ignition on, the warning light integrated in switch 3 informs you of the locking status of the opening elements:
- indicator light on, the doors and tailgate are locked,
- indicator light off, the doors and tailgate are unlocked.
When you lock the doors, the indicator light remains lit and then goes out.

BOOT OPEN but not open warning light on dashboard say this with red warning light


The sensor is located and probably built into the boot latch. The sensor is good because the light goes off if you close it slowly. the latch is just worn out with that particular part. Replace the latch. It is not hard to replace if you have a few hand tools.

I explained the boot on my jaguar s type 2001 the light on the dashboard says the boot is open but it is not.i am unable to set the alarm because the dashboard is saying boot is open,when I open the boot...


you may have a broken wire around the boot hinge. or a faulty boot latch switch, also check the switch on the boot lid.itself.also the plastic boot closing panel has not come adrift, has the boot switch will not operate if the panel is missing/adrift.

Problem with boot lock on Astra 5 door estate 2006


If there isn't an emergency "lock knackered" panel in the tailgate trim, you will probably have to force the trim panel off. These are usually only fastened by plastic pop studs, so you should be able to do it without damaging the panel, although you may need to get replacement studs.

When the tailgate is fully closed, is it actually properly latched down? Try pushing down firmly on the tailgate when it's closed just to be certain as it's possible that the latch is sitting half open at the moment.

Can't get tailgate to open/unlock.


I had the same problem. It could be that its locked or that the mechanism inside is jammed. There is a access panel on the other side of the tailgate. to remove it you need torx screw driver (looks like an allen wrench tip). reomve all the screws and the panel. the rods that keep the tailgate closed are connected to a plastic piece. sometimes the rod slips out, just wedge it back in and the door should open and close normally.

The micro-switch is fitted inthe lock of the tailgate.Try opening the tailgate and manually close the lock and see if the boot light and the dash indicater light go off,if not,replace boot lock.If the lights go off,tailgate not closing properly,adjust the boot lock catch.Good luck
