If not you will probably have to have a locksmith open the trunk for you.I have a dead battery in the trunk of a jaguar and can't get to it. How do I jump start this car?#1-use the key to open the trunk
#2-call your nearest jag dealer, ask for the service department, and find out where the jump-start connection is under your hood-not enough info in your question (year/model) for me (or anyone else) to tell you.-you could try under the hood, about 6-12 inches in front of the firewall, by the power junction box- should be covered by a plastic cap, and have something like %26quot;bat. boost%26quot; or %26quot;jump start connection%26quot; printed on it.another place might be about 8 inches behind the driver's headlight

You should find a pos connecto under the hood, you just have to look. If all else fails call a dealer and ask them.I have a dead battery in the trunk of a jaguar and can't get to it. How do I jump start this car?Well you can see the alternator can't you? Put hot cable on output terminal of of alternator, and ground anywhere on car! Turn on ignigtin key and now your whole car is powered up! How old is car,- some of older ones had positive ground- which they called %26quot;positive earth%26quot; (instead of negative like all the American cars)! Make sure it hooked up the right way of course!
You also can charge the battery (with key off)-- by just letting the other car run for a while connected up, -- if battery is good, it will slowly charge up, -- after you open the trunk with electric opener, you can then put on boosters directly to battery and crank! *****(Wire from alterntor to battery is too small for %26quot;jump starting directly%26quot;!)
Do not try to start car with dead battery by cranking right away (unless you have the $100 jumper cables that they use on %26quot;big trucks%26quot;)- the insulation on your wires is %26quot;fat%26quot; but the wires inside are %26quot;thin%26quot;, - and can not carry the amount of current required to crank the engine, so the wires will smoke, and clamps will get hot (possibly burn your hands), - or burn wires in two! Let alternator transfer charge (from other vehicle for 15 minutes)-- or so to %26quot;pick up the dead one%26quot; a little, then it can %26quot;help%26quot; boosters provide enough current to crank! Also alternator on Jag will not charge till a ceritan amount of electricity is in battery to %26quot;excite the alternator to make it %26quot;generate%26quot;!! If to low, altenator doesn't charge, and vehicle runs as far as it can on what was put in battery and dies! Another reason why you should leave cables on for a while!I have a dead battery in the trunk of a jaguar and can't get to it. How do I jump start this car?Hook the jumper cables up to the large battery cable post at the starter and a good ground and start the car.I have a dead battery in the trunk of a jaguar and can't get to it. How do I jump start this car?My jag is in the garage so I can't take a look right now but I believe that you can use your key to open the trunk and from there jump via the positive and negative terminals.
