Unlocking Boot lid

Does anyone know how to unlock the boot lid on a Jaguar X type when the key fob will not work, is there any way in to the boot to try to unlock it as the back seats in my Jaguar do not move.

I am assuming your problem is similar to mine; the key fob isn't dead, but for some reason the boot won't release.  This happens rarely, but can be very frustrating (and embarrassing)!

When neither the key fob nor the release on the boot work, lock and unlock the car, and insert the key into the ignition.  Turn the key to the second stage, i.e. the accessories are powered, and then remove the key.  This ought to allow you to use the fob again.

Use your key under rear number plate shroud but first make sure that the clears the nomber plate as there can be a restriction by the number plate surround if this dosent work then open the fuse box in the engine bvay and use jump leads from another battery conect the black jump lead to the suspension strut mounting bolt there are 3 of these and then with the help of a second person hold the the boot release button pushed in while you touch the red jump lead to one of the spare terminals in the fuse box

does the lock unlock function work? if not you need to reprogram the key fob most likely. does the "B" on the boot(trunk) lid open the trunk? if not but the lock unlock function works on the key fob you most likely need a trunk(boot) motor or latch

The "Boot Open" message is displayed o my dash. The trunk lid is closed. The only way to open the trunk is with the key. The Key fob does not work nor do the switches inside the car or in the trunk lid...


Somethings for you to check......

If you open the boot and close the
boot latch (in the middle of the boot lid)with a screwdriver or
something does the boot light go off when you press the little
plunger for the boot light?
If it does not it may be the boot latch. It's also worth checking the
wiring loom on the right of the boot by keeping the boot plunger
pushed in with the boot latch closed as above and squeezing the
wiring loom in various places to see if the light goes off as it
should.it may be a damaged wire in the loom......

Also the plastic trim piece on the rear lower end of the
trunk (boot) is loose, the light comes on. It is held by 4 plastic
pins. When in place properly, no light, when loose, trunk open
light is on, even when trunk is secured.

Good luck

My boot won't lock on my jaguar x type 2003


Hi
Try some wd-40 spray this all around the boot lock and on the underside of the bootlid onto the mechanism, sometimes they stick and just need lubeing up. dont be shy with the wd-40 spray all over and into the lock. then try lock and unlock with the key and with the remote fob keep repeating until it free's off. this most often works and wont cost you anything so worth a go.

It's very common in cold weather, Hope this helps
Regards

How to unlock truck jaguar stype when no power


The button or the fob will not work with low or no battery power - you need to use the key. There is a keyhole on the boot under the trim or under by the reg. plate lights according to what facelift model you have.
good luck.
