How to get in boot when battery disconnected


Recommended Posts

I'm new to Jaguar ownership but I have noticed that there is a place in the engine compartment to attach jump leads/battery charger! Possibly connect a charger to this and see if you open it that way! Like I say I'm new to Jaguar so might be talking got air!

Good luck.

My XK has a lock behind the rear number plate, which you can turn with the key to open the tailgate if the battery is flat.

Maybe the XE has something similar?

Using a battery or battery charger, momentarily apply 12 volts live to the bus bar in the fuse box and earth to any bolt on the chassis / bodywork in the engine bay.

Press the boot button. Job done.

I assume your doors are not locked. If they are, use the skeleton key in your key-fob to open one.
