Since the battery is dead I can't open the trunk to get at the battery.

So there's no key lock on the trunk. What does your owner's manual say about it. How about asking the dealer you bought it from? Maybe you remove the rear seat to get to the battery. Can you open the hood to get to auxliary jump start connections under the hood? The manufacturer must have planned for this somehow. I think the solution is to plug a smaller 12 Volt battery into the cigarette lighter socket to get enough power to open the trunk.

This is quite an intriguing issue. I know the thread is quite old but I'm curious why does Jaguar doesn't make a key trunk lock. Haven't they thought of this kind of situation. Well, I guess there should be something on the manual about an alternative on how to open it in case of emergency like this or you could just call your local Jaguar dealer and ask them about this. Anyway, just sharing my opinions.
