Having problems with your 1998 Jaguar XJ8L ?

My trunk will not open when I push the badge button!

\015 I have a '99 Jag XJ8. My trunk will not open when I press the badge button or use the key ring transmitter. The only way I can is by doing it manually with the key. I may not be sure, but I think it's stuck in ''valet mode''. I should count my blessings that I can open the trunk at all! But it's starting to get a bit annoying. What's going on?\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 21-01-2019

Answers :

If i'm not mistaken... i believe there is a disable switch located around the lock mechanism when you have the boot open... it might have accidentally gotten bumped
Check for power to the electronic release if no power check fuse,relay, switch, connections and wiring and check release for damage or debris possible jamming it
