Jaguar Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and welcome back to justanswer.com
If you go under the hood you will see the fuse box on the passenger side. Flip open the lid and on the top row you will see empty fuse spots with one blade terminal off it. You can install the red positive lead of your booster there then the black ground lead to the body. This will give you enough power to open the trunk provided the alarm does not go off. You can also use a charger that goes into the cigar lighter element which will also get you in the trunk.
I went into the fuse box and did as you instructed. The
radio worked; dome lights came on; seats would go
back and forth (electronic); fuel gate on passenger
rear quarter panel would open. However, the trunk
would not open. Any suggestions now?
I checked this several times. I tried it both ways
but am reasonably sure that when the button
is out that it is not engaged.
The information about the fuse box was great as
it obviously sent some power into the vehicle. It
just didn't allow the trunk to open yet. I do not
think it is a matter of letting it 'charge' for awhile,
but I did this for a few minutes anyway. I would think
it would take very little power to open the trunk if
everything else were okay. It used to open easily
before I let the battery run down (big mistake).
Would a pop-a-lock guy (yellow pages) likely be
able to open it without damage? I have no idea.
I have no key of any kind; key was lost in a mountain lake.
The trunk opened easily with either the key (even if
battery was down) or the push button below and to the
left of the dash (by the fuel door release button) when
the battery was charged.
