Question about Jaguar Vanden Plas

1 Answer

I just bought a used 1991 Jaguar XJ6 Vanden Plas. I am locked out! None of the keys work. None of the doors open including the trunk. The only thing it does is make a couple click noise but the actual locks aren't moving. All door handles are in great condition..All of the locks work from the inside.

Use wd-40 or liquid wrench and a tooth pick- use toothpick to hold the little metal flap in lock back and spray oil inside- locks weren't uses much as you have remote locks- lack of use can cause rust/lockup
key will start engine? if not- you might have gotten the wrong keys- or there might be a different one for the door locks from the ignition key

    After letting the locks soak for a while, (several minutes to an hour) run the key in and out of the lock(s). THEN try turning the key. If the key turns and the locks still do not open then someone used a tool inside the door and knocked the rod assembly off. You will require a locksmith to get in and then the dealer (or locksmith ) to reconnect the rod assembly.

My 1996 jaguar vanden plas trunk switch on the driver side of the car doesnt work and my key doesnt work. How do i hotwire the trunk to make it open?


check fuses and relays --check power to switch and test switch if switch bad replace and if need access now can jump switch to release actuator --but if key doesnt work either the problem sounds like a damaged latch or debris stuck in latch lock --if key turns try pushing down and up on trunk if latch is not cooperating then will need to remove rear seat

Where is the fuel pump on a 1985 jaguar vanden plas?


open the trunk; lift out the liner; on each side are additional smaller covers about 5x10 which after lifting expose the fuel pumps, one for each tank. They are a common problem, especially after sitting for a while. I've taken them apart before and got them working again.

How do i disable valet mode om a 98 jaguar vanden plas?


Try inserting the key into the drivers door lock and try centrally locking and unlocking all the doors a few times. If this does not reset the valet function try using the key in the drivers door lock and pressing the fob at the same time as locking and unlocking the doors. Even with valet mode engaged you should be able to access the trunk by physically inserting the key into the trunk lock.
