If You push the valet button in the console and now your trunk gets stuck on 1995 jag think its in the valet mode and cant be opened even by the key what can you do?

Make sure you have the correct key there are two usually the one with the green plastic fob is the valet key and the Black fob is the normal key. You will need the regular key to unlock valet mode a good locksmith could probibly get the cut code from jaguar and cut a new key or call your dealer for a new key. Due to a lack of use you will often find the the master key will fail to open the trunk. If the FOB is not working and you have reset the Valet switch, then your only alternative is to open per the methods described below. Read through the descriptions below and see if it helps answer your particular problem. The Valet key will not open the trunk. The XJ6 X300 series the trunk lock switch is located left of the steering wheel on the instrument panel dash. On the XJ6 (1988-90) no internal trunk switch. On the XJ6 (1990-1994) commonly called the XJ40, the trunk switch is localed on the glove box. "Removing the Backseat" method is not advised since it involves removing the gas tank. You can get a new key cut at the the Jag dealer if you have the VIN # and proof of ownership. But it will cost you about $65. The key type is called "Tibbe" and make sure its the Master key (Black) not the valet key (green), since the valet key will not open the trunk. You should note the if you have not used the master key to access your trunk much, you may find it very stiff. This is very common. If this is the case do be very careful not to over force the key. Try the alternative method below shown in the website. The "trunk release switch" is located on the left side of the steering wheel on the instrument panel dash . If that does not work and often this is the case because of breaks in the wiring harness that often occur inside the trunk at the "right hand side" hinge. If you look carefully after you get the trunk/boot open again you will see where the harness snakes under the RHS hinge. There is an alternative method that is illustrated at the following web site that gives full instructions on how to open the trunk when all else fails by removing the license plate.

You only have the valet key how do you open your trunk you could just hit the trunk release button but after hitting the valet button it wont open please help this is for a 1998 xj8 l series?

The purpose of the "Valet Key" is to allow a parking attendant or any other person to operate the car, but not be able to access the trunk where presumably you would store your valuables. The tip of the Valet key is different from the Master Key. It is part of the security systems design. You can use the Valet key to have another master key cut. But as you are probably aware, most locksmiths lack the special machine or key blanks to help you.

The locks on these compartments are designed to only be opened or engaged by the main car key (which is usually a chipped transponder key, smart key, or similar).
