On some cars, you need to pull the inner handle twice, pull release pull.

Does that work with yours?

Dear Gary, No but thanks for trying - I tracked it down to the Ignition Barrel - it was "lazy" in triggering the release mechanism and I have with careful drop of very light oil down the key barrel got the Ignition Switch to do what it should have in the first place.I am currently restoring another Jag S type 3.0 Litre 2003 with a problem which is giving me a headache if you dont mind looking at it with your undoubted skill (I am a Motor Engineer) but this foxes me- Boot Light showing open all the time. The Switch is ok and the feed is there to be broken.

I would look at the harness near the boot hinge for broken wires.

The harness routing encourages failure is this area.

You can see the harness bend if your in the boot.

Hope this helps.

I guess that's how it goes sometimes.

Another tech may offer further advice.
